I have a Loco Libre Habanero UQ & was wondering what diameter the shock cord is that suspends the uq?
Thanks in advance

I'm thinking 1/8". Secondary is thinner, not sure what though.

I forgot to mention it is a 20 degree quilt .. according to Dutch & hammock gear ...for winter quilts in the area of 0-20 degree use 1/8”. Just want to be sure . I’m swapping out primary suspension cause it’s waaay to tight ...need a bit longer .

Winter quilts should be 1/8 to support the extra weight and to perform better in the cold temps. Secondary suspension is usually thinner, but I have found that the linelocs hold better on 1/8 as well.

You can get it in different colors for a nice accented look and increased visibility. I like to use orange. Here is a link to some I got on Amazon that works well and offers all the colors, sizes, and lengths in one place:

Shock Cord 1/8 Inch - SGT KNOTS - Marine Grade Dacron Polyester Bungee - 100% Stretch - Moisture, UV, Weather Resistant

LL uses 1/8 for the primary suspension for most of their quilts. Not sure about the 50 Operator and 60 Recon series.

A 20 quilt will have a 1/8" primary and 3/32" secondary. Unless you bought an older (circa 2015) model it should be set up for a 11' hammock.
