So hang tight and I will post some pics when I finish this bad boy tomorrow or wednesday.
    Please do post those pics and any other helpful info you used to make it. I'm interested in having one eventually but like you said don't want to pay quite so much for it.
    Cheers.

    I haven't had the need to use an UQP yet. I have been using my DIY UQ and not been in any torrential rain that posed a threat under my spacious tarp. Since I will be receiving a incubator 20 soon I will now have more of a concern. I usually carry a silny backpacking poncho tarp I purchased many years ago. It has been a great multi function piece of gear for me over the years. I will now add UQP to it's repertoire. I'll try it out backpacking a few weeks from now.

    My diy UQP is always in my pack...

    My tarp has minimal coverage so if I'm in a exposed position below a summit & being buffeted by wild winds I'll use it, if I'm hanging in a densely forested area I won't need it.
    If the temps are icy/frosty & going to drop below my UQuilts rating I'll use it.
    In tropical environs I use it as a 2nd layer bug + a coastal breeze protector.
    Incoming heavy weather, horizontal rain, downpours with big splashing raindrops, it'll be on.

    It's a handy/ versatile piece of kit...use it when you need to.

    No one will argue with this - great folks and quality work. You don't need one but they sure are handy.
    I use my 2QZQ often. You can treat the UQP with permithern for summer bug control and for cooler weather pull it up/around the top of your hammock (from chest on down) to use as a sock to manage the breeze/mist/blowing snow.
