    (another) Yeti Question

    To WBG or anyone who owns one:

    does the Yeti UQ have a shock cord adjustment at the head and foot end?


    in all the photos and vids I've seen I haven't noticed any.

    It's just a big loop of shockcord that runs through one side, hooks around at the foot end, goes through the other side, and is tied at the head end. No adjustments on the end; they're not necessary because of the way it's cut.

    Beautiful piece of equipment. ;p

    and I think the Yeti was one of the first if not the first to have draft collars on foot and head end further decreasing change of air spillage.

    +1 about no adjustments needed.

    I have both the winter and 3-season yeti, and really like their cut, and how they don't slip around or have cold spots. I've tried other UQs, but they just didn't "fit" me as well.

    I was a little "worried" about not having the adjustments...but, sounds like it's not an issue... awesome, just ordered one.

    thanks
