    I've been using the MM for a while now and it is awesome. Ended up buying my girlfriend one too. It basically boils down to a couple key features:

    - No drafts when rolling around
    - center zip...

    Got the new hooks installed. Badass. Paul, perhaps you should consider selling a little "upgrade kit": 2 S-Biner hooks, 2 split rings, and 2 small cord locks. The rest can be salvaged from the...

    I received the hooks! They got here fast. I'll be installing them tonight.

    Thanks Paul!

  5. WTB: New UnderQuilt Carabiner Hook Thingies

    Thanks for all the comments!

    I took the Mobile Mummy out this weekend. While it was way to warm to evaluate it's temp rating the center zip made using it in a hammock much easier than a side-zip....

    Also, as I understand it, the "comfort level" of 27 F is for women and the "lower limit" of 16 is for men. If you look at a bag like this one (random selection at REI site) you will see that it is...

    I roll around a lot when I sleep. I've only used a DIY TQ made from a RAB bag. I've always had problems letting in cold air as I rolled from one side to the other and so I've become hesitant about...

    Thanks for the thoughtful reply BillyBob.

    It is, obviously, getting warm out. However, I am eager to try it pea-pod style during the cold weather.

    If anyone is curious (since we are often calibrated to TQ weights) I could only find 2 sleeping bags (at the REI site) that were lighter than the Mobile Mummy 3-season that had a similar temp rating....

    I hadn't even thought of trying it Pea Pod style since my primary backpacking hammock is a WBBB. Also I have a nice UGQ UQ so you don't have to sell me on that ;P You're right for a sleeping bag it...

    Ya, it's always tough to "try out" things like TQ's since they are often made to order, costly, can't really return them. But ya, you're right, gotta figure out what works!

    It is normally in "sleeping bag mode". The feet out setup is the secondary (and is a bit goofy looking from the pics hehe).

    Pretty rude. I haven't been to the hammockforums in a few months but I don't remember it being so hostile here. I am a backpacker but not a gram counter. Thanks for the constructive comments....

    I decided to take advantage of the REI 20% coupon and stumbled across the Sierra Designs Mobile Mummy. It's a Mummy Bag that has a top center zip, arm holes and a legs hole so you can...

    Keep it out of the trash can?

    Seriously though: Put it in a clean room? I have seam sealed a couple tarps and never had a problem with "trash" getting in the sealer.
