    Top quilt creeps up

    I slept in the back yard last night and had trouble with my top quilt creeping up and letting cold air in. It got down to 40 degrees and I would have been toasty warm if the thing would have stayed put. It is a Golite 3 season. Please give me some advise on keeping a tq around my body.

    That's not a hood, it's a foot box...put your feet in it (), snap the two top corners together and stick your head through it, snug up the drawstring to seal it at your neck, do a little tucking and you should be good to go....or am I missing something here?

    Maybe some other issue, if you had a three season underquilt, you would have had to have the top quilt vented at times to keep from roasting.

    if the TQ won't tuck, you may want to go wider with one of the cottage designers

    all my tq and sleeping bags have a loop put at the foot of them.I have a small line coming off the foot gathered end of my hammock with a micobiner attached. I just snap the micro biner on the loop. I toss a lot in my sleep and it keeps it in place for me.
