    Yeti

    Got my winter yeti today.
    Thanks again Brandon. Good piece of gear.
    I must admit, I was surprised at how little it weighs. I mean I knew the weight before I bought it but to hold it is another thing altogether.
    Super easy to set up. took like 7 seconds longer than just setting up the hammock.
    Real nice and real "WARM".

    Again, Good piece of gear.

    Thats superb! Great to hear good reports on the Yeti.
    I am awaiting a Winter Yeti and eager to feel the warmth. They look so thick. Gonna add my 1/2 DIY UQ over the feet/footbox area. Been goofing with that "modular" two UQ combo.
    Lucky You!!!!!

    They are nice! I've gotten too warm in mine a couple of times now; that's a nice problem to have.

    Thanks.

    I'd be interested in knowing how the shockcord channel works. It looks like it could shape the quilt nicely.

    Both the shock cord suspension and the channel it runs through work exactly as they should. Very easy to set up, very easy to adjust, and it holds the quilt snug all the way round, and exactly where it needs to be.
    If that pic worked then I would mention that I had it adjusted a little far up to the head end, at that point.

    Kind of. I use that to throw at the house to let the wife know it's time for another beer, OR "Hey there is a bear, get on out here and run some distraction. Take one for the team Honey!"
    And no its a regular foot box.
