    Adjusting my Jarbidge for best coverage and protection?

    I'm ramping up for a trip at the end of March and I've started to fiddle with my new(ish) Jarbidge UQ. What's the best way to set this up? As a partial length, should it be from my shoulders or the top of my head? I also have some triangle thingies on order, hopefully they help with the fit.

    Any guidance or advice is appreciated.

    I would go from the top of my shoulders, that way you get a little extra length out of it and then I would use a pillow or extra clothes to lay my head on

    I also use triangle thingies to help keep mine snug against the hammock.

    I set mine up somewhere between the top of my shoulders and the top of my neck.

    So you clip them to the quilt instead of using the cord built into the quilt itself?

    Correct, clipping to to the shock cord could work but trying to adjust all that streachy cord would be a real pain

    If you look at the picture in my earlier post you can see where I have also used the suspension from the UQ to clip to the hammock and the Thingies make sure the UQ stays tight against the bottom of the hammock.

    Any advice for how to adjust to cover better when lying at a diagonal?
