    Draft

    Does anyone else have the problem of an UQ draft on the same plane as the ridge line. What I mean is where the gathered end is follow the fabric down to where you lay on it. That area seems to have creases and divits in it that allows air to come in on my HH expedition. Anyone else has this problem.

    If the end is hanging open that can happen. Try tightening up the suspension on the under quilt.

    I like for the under quilt to look like its slightly lifting up the bottom of the hammock when I'm not in it. That's how I gauge if it's hung right.

    I had the exact same problem until I found these threads:

    They fixed my quilt right up and killed the CBS problem I was having.

    I had the same problem with my DIY PLUQ. Here is a post containing a video that detailed my problem and the steps I took to fix it.

    If you have a zip-model Expedition, you can use my method. Otherwise, the triangle thingies are probably your best bet.
