    You got a sweet piece of gear there! Many will be jealous when they see it. Keep a close eye on it.

    I slept in it.

    So I used it the first night I got it and I have to say that I was very pleased.No cold spots anywhere!I have one question on where to attach it to the hammock. The suspension shock cord on the snugfit seems really long and I ended up hooking the beaner to the tree sling on my warbonnet BB. What if the trees were further apart. Am I supposed to put an adjustable loop on my webbing and shorten my shock cord or what? I have the webbing suspension on my BB by the way.What if it rains, It looks like water would run down the shockcord and get the quilt wet.Do I need to put something infront of the quilt to catch the drips like what they sell on speer's website?

    HG-- congrats on the SF w/ the BB--same set up I've got. The suspension fo the SF can be used variously,depending on what you like--hooked over the BB suspension at one length, or as I do, biners on the my rings from the tree straps. You you have a water cloth there anyway. You'll need to experiment with different tensions on the different lines, to get what works right for you. Have fun.

    Sadly I've yet to use my snugfit in the real world yet, I've played around with it within the safety of the home environ but not on the trail. I can say that the Yeti is proven to 32F though and what I need to know is if anyone has used both Snugfit and Yeti in combination? or for that matter Yeti and Mt. Washington in combo together? If so which was outermost? Seems like the Yeti would be.....

    I have the same setup as well and have been very happy with it.
    I've experimented some and what I have settled on is this.
    The mini-biner hooks to the triangle on the suspension. Shorten the shock cord so there is just a little stretch to reach it. For the other shock cord, I use the two loops closest to the end on each side. Tie it to one of the loops farthest from the end, run it through the one next to it, go to the other side and run it through the end one and tie it to the second one. Make it short enough that it just reaches the knot at the gathered end and hook it over the knot.
    Here is a pic. The stuff sack is kind of in the way but I hope you get the idea.
    Once you have it adjusted the way you like it, all you have to do is clip the biner to the triangle and hook the other cord over the knot. Do the same on both ends. Just be careful not to make it so tight that you compress the down.

    Snug fit

    I have used it twice in the woods around my house and I love it. Very toasty and no cold spots. Not cold enough to really give it a test. I was thinking of setting up some kind of adjustable loop , on my webbing ,that the beener on the snugfit could hook onto depending on how the trees were spaced. I was also thinking of just using a strong safety pin though the webbing but not sure if this would mess up the webbing over time.

    I don't understand why you would need that to be adjustable. You could use a Marlin Spike hitch on the webbing if you want to go that way.
    I prefer hooking up to the triangle rings because they are always at the same spot. Set it up the first time and never need to adjust it again.
