we switched to the ribbon ties long ago, you must have seen a very early model. i pull a bunch of cord through the cordlock which cinches it mainly on that side, but then you just grab the bunched fabric and pull on it a little which it evens out the cinch across the whole width, it's pretty easy.
i find it's easier to tie the neck ribbons and do most of the cinching and THEN pop my head through the head hole, then usually just a small adjustment to the cordlock to get the tension just right around my neck

Those are exactly the answers and pics I was looking for. Thanks Brandon and Yukon!
So I'm interested in what the OP ended up getting? Any news jburke1?
Sorry for the extremely late reply but if your still wondering I ended up getting the 20° HG Burrow with the snap end box. I used it during the winter up in the great smokey mountains where temps got below freezing and it kept me very warm. Only problem is sometimes I could feel a draft from the small hole at the end since it was not sewn. Small price to pay for such better versatility.
