    My wife pushes her TQ off in the middle of the night and then calls guess who to figure out why she is cold. I got a Black Bird, gave her the HH and zipped her in. That works pretty well.

    The mesh triangle in the foot end is an idea I might try sometime.

    tq's that are competitively sized are sometimes too small. i have no issues with my giant tq, a marmot sawtooth extra wide extra long sleeping bag. i cant imagine sleeping with anything else.

    it seems this triangle method could possibly lead to down compresion??

    My youngest used to do that. He was using a DIY TQ with a drawstring footbox. After cinching the footbox, I tied the extra cord to the support at the end of the hammock. That kept it pretty much where it needed to be, and it was no-cost and no added weight.

    Maybe also look into a hammock sock.

    I have done the same, except I clip it with an s-biner to a foot end ridgeline prussick.

    I'm actually struggling with this right now. I've now used two different top quilts and at least 3-4 times a night I wake up with the top quilt either under me, or at my feet in a giant ball. I'm actually considering selling mine because I just can't seem to get it to work.

    of course as my lady kindly pointed out, it should be no surprise to me. I thrash more than a pig on ice in my sleep. Or so I'm told

    Me too. If that doesn't work, you could always do like I'm planning for my daughter's first date: I'm sure his pants will be too baggy, and to prevent them from accidentally falling down, I'll use my staple gun...

    What's up Sevens? Did you figure something out? Not nice to leave us hanging.

    A nail gun is much more effective. I also used the line, "I have a gun and a shovel and you won't be missed." My daughter just got married. sigh!
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.
