    I have a 3 season Lynx, but no photos yet.

    The head end is the same as shown in the WB Setup Vid for the full length Lynx.

    The foot end is shortened and grosgrain straps extend from the corners to reach the RR foot end spreader bar loops for attachment. Both the full length and torso length Lynx's have strong "rubber bands" at the foot end to provide tension.

    So at the head end of the Lynx torso quilt,,it would cover your head and down? or would it start at the shoulders?

    The torso length covers your head exactly as the full length does rather than shifting it too the shoulders. I imagine one could extend the head end connections and shorten the foot end connections to shift it a bit, but I have not tried this yet.

    Sorry to take so long on the photos. I set up, took photos, it was snowing, I laid down....you get the idea.

    I'm 5'-8". If I lay with my head all the way to the head end (which you do to take advantage of the "head rest") the UQ ends right under my knees.

    20* torso length Lynx with 1 oz over stuff. Photos taken with RR turned upside down...

    Have not had mine on the Ridgerunner yet, but the workmanship is very nice!
    I did remove the minibeaners that came with it and replaced them with Dutch Quilt hangers. All four of the quilt hangers (slightly less than 4 grams) weigh what one minibeaner weighs (4 grams, each). Yeah, kinda anal, but that's just me.
    Mine is the 20 degree torso length also. I am pretty short, so it will be darn near full length for me.
