    Ewker, the same thing happened to me with my quilt migrating to the side and me thinking it had been stolen by raccoons. In my semi-awake state, I started to wonder how the raccoons had gotten on HF to learn about warbonnet gear.

    I actually started using the "side quilt" as a way to control my temperature on warmer nights and also just to get the quilt out of the stuff sack when it was too warm to use it.

    This is the way I used my 3-season Yeti on my trip last weekend. The temp was 60ish. I had no problems with over heating, but I used a sheet on top, and I kicked it off a few times.

    Here is a shot of the Yeti set up without biners. This view is from the top of the hammock looking down at the attachment point. Hope this helps.

    I still don't see how you get it around the hammock without running it thru the straps or by untying the shockcord

    Ewker: there is a knot where the end of the hammock is gathered and whipped. The knot hangs below the suspension line. The shockcord is looped over the knot (between the knot and the suspension line). Initially it may look as if the knot will just bend down, allowing the shockcord to slip off. It does not do this, however.

    I will look at it the next time I use the hammock

    You attach it from the bottom. Imagine the quilt laying underneath the hammock and suspension line. You lift the quilt up to the hammock and hook the shock cord from the bottom as shown in the picture around the whipping.

    Is this what you guys are talking about? My drawing is showing it before you tighten it, and I'm assuming the shock cord rams in tight between the support rope and the hammock whipping-thing/knot

    PS I haven't been around here for a while, but, Ewker in a hammock? when did this happen?
    my hammock gear weights total: 2430g (~86oz)
    Winter: total 2521 (~89oz)
    (see my profile for detailed weights)

    I did once, with my synthetic version. Just a careless move. I had the wrong side of the shell, the normaly closest to the ground bottom side, against my back. The quilt was upside down. That really worked poorly!

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
    Romans 8:18,21-22
