    Underquilt for Bridge Hammock

    Hi everyone,
    I have a WBRR and will be in the market for a full underquilt. I am looking at the Lynx and the Loco Libre Reaper (20 degree). I would appreciate your thoughts on the advantages and disadvantages of both or any others I should consider. Thanks!

    I tested one of the Loco Libre Reapers for George and have the Lynx as well and you can't go wrong with either. They both fit like a glove and the Reaper is so pretty and you can get this in different colors so I would lean that way unless you need it fast as the Lynx ship a bit faster.

    I have the Arrowhead Equipment Ridge Creek XL and absolutely love it! Fits like a glove and keeps me toasty!

    Hey Scott, if you have tested this any where near to it's rating, please chime in over at the poll I have going about the AHE quilts and how low folks have been able to take them.

    Underquilt for Bridge Hammock

    Good info, thanks very much. I will check out the XL too. I am trying to make it through this season with a pad and the sock, then moving to the UQ next year, hopefully catching a sale in the interim.

    So far, the lowest Ive been with it is 40, but I will be getting more opportunities to test now that I have my Tato gear stand.

    I've gotten my regular CDT UQ to fit quite well on my RR and just bought a CDT LYNX clone from the f/s section that is pretty nice.

    Have the Lynx and love it. Looking to order something full length for winter and comparing specs on weight, fill and price I may go with the reaper.
    Some days I can't tell whether I found a rope or lost a horse...

    How does the suspension work on the Loco Libre?
