I got in a snazzy new under quilt today from you guys and forgot that it comes with the new suspension. So, I jumped on HF and looked up this thread and the directions were spot on for sure. Thanks again for the explanation and I have to admit, I am really loving the way this baby hangs on my hammy.
I may be missing something here but I don't understand the secondary suspension. Where do the lines on each corner of the quilt attach? I don't mean where they are attached to the quilt but where do the other end of the lines attach?
I must be doing something wrong then .I just monday got my new uq with the secondary suspension .I took it out after a test hang in the backyard Pretty cool.
So get out there and get my rig set up . installed uq as ussual then gave the secondary a little snugness all looked good fit very well .got down around high 40's i woke about 3am with a very cold backside , i sliped on and extra top and socks ,checked the uq best i could .It seamed to be right where i left it ,no sagging and not smashed aginst my back. when i got up and around i got to checking it out..
The secondary shock cord was lose all the way to the knot on all 4 corners . I then went to test them i found that the cord lock wasnt holding the shock cord in place.
They do close and lock but the shock cord just slips right through the cord lock.
Now i dont think this had anything to do with a cold night .im not sure maybe i didnt have the down evenly spread through out. maybe i hade the quilt too tight smashing the quilt .it didnt look that way in the morning.
need some advice
Just wanted to say that I tried out my new quilts for a week of cold camping. The first night I just used the S biners to clip it on much like I did with my SS UQ and ended up freezing cold all night long. After that I took the time to do it properly each night and was warm as can be. Can't wait for an excuse to go hammocking again!
I misread the explaination and thought my 40° Incubator had the new system, but it doesn't. I noticed this after I received my 20° last week. They both work fine for me, but I really like new version. I hung around 26° for a couple nights and stayed toasty. Much less messing around once in the hammock and there's no way this thing will slip off my shoulder like my 40° sometimes does!
With our land becoming more developed and crowded, lots of people go into the woods because they are beautiful and wild. Unfortunately some people’s actions make these places much less beautiful than when they arrived (bushcrafters building chairs, tables, shelves, tripods, walls, huge fires, cutting trees, etc.) Do your best to make sure you’re not one of those people.
Hey Adam, Any chance we may be able to see some instructions to retro-fit older quilts to the new secondary suspension?
