    ok I am not seeing as to how you would hang it without running it thru the hammock straps.

    yeah those 2 biners weigh next to nothing and it is quick and easy

    Can't argue, the Yetis are ridiculously warm.

    I love my neat sheet uq. Won't do much for you below 50, other than keep the wind off of you, but I like it a lot for the warmer nights.

    Cookies man! It's all about the number of cookies that could be carried instead of biners. Two small novelty biners; that's gotta be at least 1/2 of an OREO.

    Only pic I have with me. It's the old Warbonnet ElDorado and the original synthetic uq with an adjustable suspension, not to mention the temp ridgeline in the way buuuuuuut, the basic method is the same. The whipping mass is below the line leading to the rings and provides a nice knob for the shockcord to go around. The shockcord goes below the line to the rings, but above the mass. Simple?

    Might want to lay it out and check, just to be sure.

    I'll echo what's already mentioned. You don't need the biners. You take the shock cord ends and run it over the ends of the whipping or "knots" at each end of the hammock but underneath the hammock ridgeline cord that attaches to the webbing not over the top of the hammock ridgeline cord. It stays in place just fine and will not come off because of the tension of the stretched shock cord. The shock cord should be taught and in a nice straight line. The Yeti will pull the hammock sides in like a taco when you are not in the hammock, this is normal. Once you get in the hammock the quilt wraps around your sides which it is supposed to do. If you reach outside the hammock just grab the side of the Yeti and it slides up and down along the shock cord for easy adjustment.

    Another problem with the biners that I just thought of is the fact that it creates a sharp point in the end of the shockcord loops and doesn't force the uq open as much. Therefore, it doesn't start to go around the hammock body until further down. I can see how that would allow it to slip easier than if the cords were more spread out and already being directed around the hammock body from the get-go. Just thinkin out loud here.

You can simply take the shock-cord on the Yeti and treat that whip as if it were a hook and place it there. Once both ends are on, the tension will hold it in place.

    FWIW Ewker, I did the EXACT same thing at first...took down the suspension, then switched to biners...
    Cannibal showed me the light on using the whipped mass as the hook for the shockcord...worked just as advertised

    ewker,
    for a snug fit the head end edge needs to be even with your shoulders, but to vent slide that edge up just past the top of your head and a gap should open and allow some heat to escape. it might take a few mins to cool down if you're already overheated, but it should cool off quite a bit that way.
