    This was the fix in my case, may help you.
    That's what helped me.

    Loosen helped a lot. Funny thing is in my mind tighten to get rid of gaps is the only thing that made sense. I tightened that cinch 3 times before i posted... i didn't even think loosening it would help. Thanks hf. I'm off to sleep! Good night. (Lol)

    Well this was wild! I don't recall an emergency request for UQ adjustment before. But looks like you 911 UQ might have pulled it off. Not being familiar with that UQ, all I could think of is "tighten suspension". I'm not that used to the cinch cords on the end yet, my WB synthetic Yeti does not have that, only has draft tubes. My JRBs have that, but I mostly use them on my JRB bridge where it doesn't seem to make a hoot what I do, it's just always right. But I'll keep Slo's "loosen on the foot side" tip tucked away.

    In the meantime, my hat is off to UQ-911!
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    The pic below shows how the calf ridge can create a concave curve on the underside of hammock that the UQ simply cannot conform to. My plan is to add a draft collar to the UQ.

    That's what I had to do. When my wife said she felt "nice and cozy," that's when I knew it was right. Perhaps try to find somebody who's a cold sleeper to help with the adjustments; if they are warm, you should be too.

    I wouldn't want anyone else to lay in my hammock, they might not want to leave it

    All is well. I slept warm after the adjustment. Tapatalk/hammockforum saved me from a cold night.
    In cheesy commercial voice: thank you hammock forum!

    Have you seen shugs video about UQs? I think it is just the way that you have you underquilt suspended that is making that happen. I could be wrong but something just doesn't look right in that picture.
