    you can add a cord lock or two. the posigrip cordlocks from owf are about the strongest regular cordlock. there's alot of tension, so the cordlock might slip. you could just tie the susp a couple inches smaller if needed. direct wind hitting the edges will probably get in no matter what, best to block the wind with a tarp.

    that mod cannibal linked to helps with hammocks hung with little sag to provide more upward pull. i think the easiest thing is to ditch that cordlock and just tie those mod cords together with a shoestring knot.

    used it at Mt Rogers
    night 1 was 28-30*F w/20-25 mph wind...no problems staying warm
    night 2 was low of 10*F rising to approx 20*F by daybreak. Had a little cold butt issue but put another layer of insulation at my butt (my hat) and fixed it.

    I was using a 30*F sleeping bag as a top quilt, the Yeti, a full length ccf pad (doubled under my legs), and my DIY hammock and I no issues (I had to adjust the suspension of the Yeti to fit my hammock but it was expected) I took a temp reading under my TQ and was reading 82*F almost too hot!

    I'm very happy with the performance, weight and compressibility of the Yeti.

    Quote Animal Control (page one) ...and the explaination makes sense to me!
    It made sense to you? That's the kind of stuff that makes my eyes glaze over on this site. Never did like math... I think I'll just have to buy a yeti if I can figure out how... It's not listed on Brandon's site... What do they run anyway?

    I wish! Pretty sure he's talking about just the 3-seasons. He's still playing with the winter version design last I heard.
    Trust nobody!
