    Question on HH side tie-out and Under Quilt

    I am not sure it this is the best forum for this question, so if it needs to be moved, please do. Anyway, I took my latest acquisitions out today to test setting everything up. What I have is a older Hennessy Exped Asym that has the 2QZQ Mod 4 done with the bottom sewn shut. I just purchased a Hammock Gear Incubator and the 2QZQ UQP. My question is, on the hammock, should I be tying out the sides on the HH (using the elastic cord the hammock came with? I did not do it today and in my setup the combination of the hammock, quilt and UQP made quite the cocoon - laying there for awhile, I was warm. Just wondering if there is anyone who has a HH and under quilt has experience tying or not tying the sides out. If it matters, my tarp is independent of the hammock - I don't use the one the hammock came with anymore.

    Thanks for any info.

    I've always thought the side tieouts to be for comfort, rather than necessity.

    You don't have to use the tie outs at all. They will give you a roomier feel during the warmer months is about it

    My experience is if its not close to the limits of my quilt (JRB Nest) I use the tie outs. If I think I may get cold I leave them untied and benefit from the "cocoon" effect you mentioned. Learned this from the JRB website article "Nesting Tricks From An Old Coot".
