    Videos?

    We picked up my wife's new Nest underquilt from the border this week. She's going to be trying it out tonight with a forecast low of -1C.
    I've been searching online for any videos that show a Nest being used, but there are apparently no videos of this underquilt in existence. I'm mainly looking for any tips, tricks, or just visual aids to make sure it's set up the best way possible.
    It seems like this is something that should be on the JRB website, but I can't find it there either.

    This video may help. See me hooking up a JRB Hudson River...similar to the Nest just without the bottom slit.
    Carry forth))))

    Thanks Shug. I actually watched this last week while awaiting the quilt.
    One difference I noted is that the Nest has two loops per side. I know one is for the side tie outs on the HH. The seconds purpose is unknown. How do you find the quilt fits when you have your BB tied out. It seems like it would cause gaps underneath. We haven't had it properly set up yet, but we will be getting to that this afternoon.

    Not sure where the second loop on each side is for, maybe for using with dutch ware attaching the quilt to the hammock at the same place eery time, or to assist with other suspension methods or even for ground use (put elastic on to keep the mat in place).

    I have an old JRB No Sniveler and never used the loops, not even on my HH..

    Hope you are going to enjoy your downy goodness!

    Thanks hawghanger. My buddy will be getting his switchback soon. He might have to try this out as he's looking into quilts.

    And I thought I was being ingenious using those loops and hooks this way on my Switchback.... Like Pan said, those quilts stay put.

    The Switchback. It's second only to the RR for comfort for me so far. No fuss setup is great.
