    My new dangerbird!

    Got my new dangerbird today! Got to hang it a bit, will probably sleep in it this weekend and then got a trip the following! Thanks to Papa Smurf!

    A quick question about the tie outs on the side, if you use them it seems it is more difficult to get the underquilt to fit right. Is there a clip or something that I can buy somewhere that will help hold the UQ? This is actually my first go around with an underquilt too.

    For a full length UQ, I find it easiest to use the built-in quilt loops with either mini biners or Dutchware's clip-on quilt hooks.
    For a smaller UQ, like in your photo, you may want to consider the sew-on hooks.

    I don't often use the tie-outs. When I do use the tie-outs, I find that they actually help keep the UQ from riding up on either side. I don't think they would do anything to help hold it in an asym orientation.

    Thanks guys! I will try and do a mini review and maybe a trip report after we go. My buddy is getting married and for his bachelor party he wanted to do a trip so we are headed to Nordhaus Dunes on the west side of Michigan. I'm super excited!
