I really wish I hadn't talked myself out of putting the side channels on the under quilt. I have been looking at mine to figure out how to make the sides fit a bit better. The primaloft really wasn't too bad to sew with the scrim to the outside.
On a bridge, I am under the impression it is best to have the UQ from the suspension ridge with an adjustable tensioning system.
I like your tall bugscreen. Mine is basically just like Grizz's. Can you sit upright in your bridge? I find that its a bit tricky in mine and becomes a bit of a balancing act.
I can sit upright, but like you say-it's a little tippy. I tapered mine from the head end to the foot end and think I did so a bit much, but it's great for sleeping.
As for the bugnet, it is mosquito netting from Hancock Fabrics. I plan to make another bridge in the future that has a little more width at the feet and use no-see-um for the net instead of mosquito net. At the time I started this DIY stuff I didn't realize no-see-um was a bug, I just thought it was a brand name of mosquito netting.
Thanks all for the compliments!!
