    I would rather have the torso length start at the shoulder because I use a pillow. Can somebody confirm it can really be shifted a little bit to the foot end?

    Thanks

    I got the torso length for mild weather and have a full length 0* for the cold.

    I'm also a terrible person to ask about temp ratings because after a couple of hours, I always think I'm getting cool.

    I caved in and ordered a 20 full length with a extra oz of down Lynx as I am a cold sleeper. Figured I would just play with it and learn to vent it when needed or use my 50 degree Jarbridge and 40 overstuffed from UGQ which fit very nicely. Thanks for the replys. I just have to try one of Brandon's quilts with this RR bridge!

    Congrats Acer! Sure you'll love it. Crawled out of my RR at 9:00am this morning...way too comfortable with the 20deg lynx.

    Cheers

    The wife gets the 20 degree overstuffed (2 extra ozs of down) full length down quilt from UGQ's and I get a new Lynx.

    How did you attach the clips to the UQ? There are just webbing loops on the UQ.

    You'll like the full length Acer.

    OK...more testing done...it was a good excuse to try the WBRR on my small turtlelady stand.

    Extension methods used were "quick and dirty".

    What I found was the farther the Lynx was extended toward the foot end, the more a gap was formed at the head end. The photos are with a 4" extension. This made a small gap which sealed a few inches in and my shoulders remained warm.

    If you wanted to modify the Lynx to use it this way, small darts where indicated in the photo would get rid of the gap.

    thanks for the testing and pics gmcttr. that should answer alot of questions for alot of people that are considering the possiblities of the torso lynx. the design is very fool proof.

    One good thing about going with a full length Lynx is there is about 5 oz
    of down in the foot area that you can shake and move up to your torso if needed.
