    wbbb's foot box and full length UQ?

    I'm still trying to visualize how a full length UQ would fit around a wbbb's foot box. anyone have a picture of such a setup?

    I've got mine set up right now, I'll go shoot some pics.

    Overview of footbox under UQ


    Footbox tucked in UQ


    UQ pulled away from footbox


    When I get in, it put my feet about half way in the footbox pushing out the UQ. I can feel the UQ with my feet, and if I really start moving and kicking it can sometimes flip under but it's easy to reach thru the hammock and pull it back into place

    Cool.

    I figure an essential wbbb UQ design detail would be a 'pocketish' area around that foot box. if it's too narrow down there kick loose issues will occur.

    thanks for the pics.

    I was concerned about that before purchasing as well. However, you just need to tighten that side of the shockcord, and I also tighten the one by my left shoulder a bit more which tends to give it a perfect fit to match the angle of your body.

    +1

    And if the quilt starts slipping off either your left shoulder or your foot; it's probably too tight, just give it some slack. Remember it needs to seal when you lay in it, not when it's just hanging slack.
