Got my Baby Orca today!
Got my Baby Orca today. It came with two long pieces of shock cord to set up suspension with. I used one as is for the foot end, and shortened the other for the head end.
I set up my GT Ultralight, and then attached the UQ. I adjusted the ends to where I like things and stood back for a look-see. Things looked good so I hopped in for a short nap. We've got about 2 -3" of snow on the ground here. Temps right at 30F. I expected this UQ to only be good down to around 40F. I lay there quite awhile and felt toasty warm. I reached my hand inside the UQ and felt a nice warm pocket of air. I'm very impressed, and extremely happy with this.
Packs up very simply and easy too!
Got any pictures, Joe Cross?
Yeah! What Mac said.
Pics or it didn't happen! :laugh:
OK, here's a couple of pics of the Baby Orca around my GT Ultralight. I put my Z-rest pad in to give a little form. You can see the slight gap, which closes when I get in, at the head. You can also notice that the foot end is not cinched as tight, as there's not as much weight to close that gap. I love this set up.
Thanks to Papasmurf for outfitting my GTU with whoopies and adjustable ridgeline. Thanks to Mac for making this awesome UQ!
Glad that is working out well for you. Thanks for posting the photos. I am investigating these for use in the coming months. I see I am not the only one who will test hang in the winter in full view of the traffic out front :D
