    VIDEO: DIY Underquilt Wrap

    Howdy, all. Here's a short "Gear Gab" video showing how I use shock cord and carbon fiber toggles integrated into the side of my underquilt as a means of bundling my entire hammock system (hammock, bug net, UQ, TQ, UQP, pillow, etc.) into a single bundle for easy packing. Looks like a pea pod, eh? The modification adds just over 1 ounce to the weight of my UQP.

    Sorry I don't have better footage or detailed pictures...just what I had on hand from my last trip. I got bored during coffee break this morning and threw it together.

    Thanks much, gents! I'm sure they're nothing new but I felt mildly clever nonetheless.
