What I did was this. I sewed three webbing loops to the hood at the
small end. One in the middle and one on each end. I ran a piece of
550 cord through them and ran that through the loop on the
suspension lines where it wraps aroound my whipped ends. I secure
the cord to my ridgeline with a taught-line hitch. The FrankenPod is
pushed to the foot end, I get in, pull the pod over me, then I slide
the taught-line hitch down towards my feet and it brings the hood up
tight to the hammock bottom.
Rigged this way I can easily ventilate the pod by slipping the
taught-line hitch back towards my head (letting air between the pod
and the hammock bottom) or, if it gets colder, I will be able to
stuff some more insulation between the pod and the hammock and be
able to adjust the compression while I am in the hammock by myself.
I will post some close-up pictures 2morrow.
