    Small Loops Around the Ridge

    I have a 20F Phoenix and I just noticed the other day it has these small loops around the edges. Any special reason for these loops? Maybe to be used with Dutch Quilt Clips?

    I'm not 100% positive, but I beleive they are intended to be used to help shore up the quilts if they sag under the weight of the down by running a line from them to the ridge line.

    Yes, for snugging up the quilt in various ways. Attaching via shock cord and a small hook or s biner up to the ridgeline is probably the most popular. I actually use one of the loops on my incubator (they put them on that too) and tie it to one of the ribbons near the footbox on my blackbird normally used to tie the but net out of the way. It helps make sure the UQ doesn't slip off the foot box as I'm moving around.

    Those loops are very handy - I wish more vendors used them.

    Phoenix with a Hennessy

    I have a Hennessy Hammock. I also have a JRB Nest, which has two tie out loops which match up with the HH tie outs.

    I wonder if anyone has sewed on the same loops to a any UQ other than JRB to match up where you want the quilt to stay. Seems like a better idea than having cords hanging over the ridge line.

    However, I like the idea of getting the quilt snug without cinching the heck out of the ends.

    For my HG Incubator, I keep a length of cord with small hooks in my ridgeline organizer. If the shockcord relaxes during the night (more so with colder temps) and I feel my butt getting cool, I'll run the cord over the ridgeline to snug the UQ up against me using those little loops. It works well and isn't permently attached.

    I'm having 2QZQ add zippers to my HH. So, I might rig up something along your idea. Thanks for sharing it.
