    Clearly you haven't laid in one yet.. maybe get one ordered up and decide for yourselves?... I spent the night in it and being a chilly night I used the overcover, lows in the upper 20s and no condensation at all with zipped up completely.
    Only thing I'm not sure about is the tie out placement. unless I pull them to opposite extremes, out and almost parallel to the hammock I get a little floppy section between the 2 attachment points. note this is just in my shop and I staked out with my hammer on one side and a pet carrier on the other, it might not be an issue with more room to maneuver outside.

    Someday in the future you'll see four 'balls', the same two 'balls' at each end and a 'ball' under on each side.
    These new sets of 'balls' (I'm laughing writing that!) will be under the gathered end and each will contain half an under cover.
    You put on your underquilt then deploy each 'under ball', i.e. half an undercover from each side.
    The under cover halves (made of course in Momentum) will join each other in the middle and the amount over overlap will determine their depth.
    You want the depth to be able to vary due to the thickness of the underquilt you've selected.....not as much overlap for a WB Winter Yeti or the LeighLo 5-50 (both rated to 0F); then again if using a TeWa summer UQ you want more over lap.
    Now how the overlap is to be maintained ~valco tabs on one side and a velcro strip(s) on the other, I don't know; that will be up the the genius we know of as PapaSurf.
    So Papa, want to make me another Dangerbird with balls! HA!
    Now think of the colors!
    The overcover in jade green.
    The hammock body in chocolate.
    The hoods (what I've been calling 'balls') in champaingne.
    One half of the under cover in coyote, the other in jage green again.
    DAMMMMMMMMMNNNNNN what a colorful bird!

    Oh sure! I get a "normal" Dangerbird (other than having Randy add Dutch Quilt Hooks and you people start coming up with all kinds of ideas and sizes/colors (Dream Hammocks wasn't open yet).

    Now I'm worried that I'll have to start saving for another Dangerbird that's got more customization.

    Right now my TQ/ZQ undercover is attached to my DangerBird, it was on the BlackBird. Nice to be able to move it from one hammock to another, but for a while I couldn't put it on any hammock because I couldn't find it!
    So having it integral on a DangerBird has appeal to me. Looks like Boomer will be first though I tried via PapaSmurf in the ordering process but had the idea too late.
    So Boomer, when you get the Dangerbird in full head dress post a vid or pics so I can see how its done.
    Was just thinking--at the head/foot ends of the under cover an exit port for UQ bungies

    Whoa, whoa, WHOAAAAA........
    I haven't come up with a final (or preliminaery) design yet and I've got 18 hammocks on my list.
    It's gonna be awhile before I get a chance to play.

    I was looking at the 2QZQ one too. Saw that it had like a gathered end, so the UQ shock cord could go up from that. Randy said he's gonna do some prototype work. I was thinking that the UQ shock cord could potentially be interfered with by that gathered end on the under cover.

    Then we were talking about fabrics. He thinks the silnylon will cause it to be not-breathable - condensation issues. So we were talking about M90 for the bottom.

    However, I could see the value in a separate piece, which would be moveable to other hammocks as needed. I like to use my Kammok when there's no bugs around. Given that the 72 will be about the same length, I may have the best of both worlds, though...
