WBBB with Zeppelin UQ
Hey guys. I've been using the wealth of knowledge on this site for some time now. It has been a tremendous help while getting into hanging.
I am currently using a 20 deg zeppelin with my WBBB.
My concern is that due to the tie outs on the hammock, and the width of the UQ (47") no matter how tight you run the channel suspension the middle of the UQ is hanging low.
I know the Yeti is made for the WBBB and it runs 40" wide.
I also understand that is you cinch the ends tight enough you can atleast eliminate cold air into the space under your butt.
My concern is that is colder weather your body heat has to heat all of the air between you and the UQ.
Has anybody else ran into the problem? Is it even a problem? Any solutions if it is?
Thanks in advance for the help!

I use a full-length (and it's even a "long" version) Zeppelin on my WBBB XLC and have no trouble snugging it up.
Maybe there's an experienced forum member nearby that can help you tweak your setup?
Take it easy,
We used WBBB for several years before moving to Dream Hammock with no issues for fit. Is the quilt bunching up in the middle as it slides down the primary suspension? May need to adjust secondary suspension to keep quilt fully "opened" along primary suspension. Is the gap there when you are out of the hammock or in the hammock. I only ask due to the fact gap may be present out of the hammock but as you load the hammock and quilt the gap closes up.
