    Underquilt solution?

    Just had a thought. I read a fair bit about people having problems sealing the air gap under their legs when using an underquilt. I have also experienced this problem.
    My idea is to use velcro tabs in this spot between the hammock and underquilt, to ensure minimal gaps.
    Any thoughts?

    You should not have an air gap if the under quilt is properly adjusted.

    I had problems, then I took Jeff's advice and attached the nest suspension to the rideline instead of the hammock supports. Fixed any problems I had.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    HC4U is correct....

    That said, for those who want a closer seal... First use the JRB Suspension System as per the instructions... Then, take the two ends of the draw cord up over the ridgeline and tie them in a bow.

    Just another technique...
