Them some nice quilts, Paule sure does some fine work, enjoy them and ill be looking forward to a gear review.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
Just thought I would post up a quick mini review. I set the hammocks up on the back deck last night , New River and the Owyhee for the Blackbird. For the ENO, the Lost River and a woobie (poncho liner).
Setup was easy and fast , I set the end channels alot looser as per Pauls advice which seemed to be just the thing. I wore just a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, my daughter wore her favorite flannel "jammies".
I would guess outside temp dropped to around 50 F, I wouldn`t know though as I was nice and comfy and asleep. No complaints on my daughters end either she slept the whole night through and even pushed her normal wake up time of 0630 back until around 0800.
So I am pretty happy with the purchase. My favorite things so far are ease of setup , it is way easier to hang the UQ than it is to slide the pad in the pocket. Second condensation problems would seem to be a thing of the past.
I want a basement! Nice quilts too!

Now. I know what to get my wife for her birthday.

I'm hoping Paul weighs in on that. I have the New River (woodland camo version) and I know it will compress a lot smaller than the supplied stuff sack's size. But I'm worried doing so may degrade the insulation. I don't have any real need to pack it down much smaller, but I do have some compression sacks and saving space in the pack is a good thing....
