Maybe this will help.
Forgot that there is the original "I think" KAQ
I built one of these back in the day back in the day http://thru-hiker.com/projects/down_underquilt.php but my next several underquilts have been rectangular. Easier to make, surer coverage. UQ...
The speed hook will not attach directly to the aluminum thing at the top of the apex. You will need to larkshead a small loop of amsteel to that and then hook onto the loop. But yes then it will...
By my calcs, seems right that the new fabric would cut about 2 oz from old weight + 2 oz of extra down would yield published weight for old fabric UQ, normal fill.
Having built a few quilts, anytime I make the slightest change it requires time to redesign it, in cutting or sewing, the material cost difference is usually small. And mine aren't nearly as form...
Do not know of anyone making them.
Prolite gear still sells the fabric,
you could make yourself one,...

or go to their subfourm
lots of things to read. JRB makes good stuff
I have a prototype you can have if you PM me. Will let you know if you like the concept.
for the visually minded....
From the sticky named Ultimate DIY Project List
2x4 Portable Hammock Stand (TrailH4x) http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ead.php?t=8758
turtlelady's Bamboo Stand (turtlelady)...
I was able to get to it at
If it frays easily, it is another indication that it is not silnylon
According to a diagram he had on his site at one time (wayback machine) the distance between tieouts is/was at that time 5'3". He does change specs occasionally so don't bet the farm on it.
Great! On the dropdown menu I don't see brown, but do see red and orange. Am I missing something?
The sniveller has an opening to allow you to wear it and is tapered. The old rsg is rectangular
Might also check out this sticky thread.
I believe there are some projects not shown on the first page that...
Both great sources, as mentioned look at the specs, make a choice and don't look back.
sorry, I can't keep up with your expanding product line. :)
Are they the same as these?
the Hennessey safari is 12 feet and many incuding me think it is very comfortable.
I believe that it has a foot box like the old go-lites where you can stick your feet out
Here if the store is working
not sure of the latest
I'll take the mamajamba
I don't know, Gossamer Gear sells them as ground cloths so they can't be too fragile. As an underquilt protector wouldn't need to be too tough, main enemy would be sticker bushes under the hammock. ...
Have not used a non-breathable one but they are available from 2QZQ, Warbonnet and Hennessy. If I shooting for a non-double use, non breathable, I would consider making one out of polycro...
+1 to what Dutch said. Suggest you sleep in it before putting on end caps or bug net, I've found it helpful to play with spreader bar lengths to find my optimum (but I usually use hiking poles so...
I believe the shorter length is because it is designed to end at your neck, if you sleep on your side with your arms up, it might be a problem for you. But many here don't have a problem with that.
From the JRB website...
"The Mt. Washington under quilt works on any hammock – including all gathered end hammocks such as: Clarks, Claytors, Eagles Nests, Hennessys, Warbonnets and the unique...
+1 to what Zilla said unless you are doing it for the challenge or learning experience or your budget is tight.
Start with this stickie
Go through the posts because I don't think the the OP was able to include all those were suggested afterward.
Thru hiker for one...Or maybe it's apex 1.0?
You pretty much have it, a well designed UQ for a bridge should not need shock-cord at the ends. But if I were building one, I would probably put a channel in the end so if I miscalculated in my...
Might also check at JoAnns, they have some in the drapery area I think. They are not burly though and usually white.
I picked up some like you wanted somewhere but could not find them on my...
Have you though about using 1/2" or 3/4" D rings?
Sold to Gustavus.

I have a 40 degree phoenix UQ for sale that needs a good home. Purchased June 21012, has draft collars and new type suspension. Used less than ten nights, excellent condition. Stored uncompressed,...
IMHO...Buy the superfly at $130, sell the mamajamba (originally $110 and doors at $75) for somewhat less than new prices and still get some of your original investment back with something you...
Maybe get a shell from
and fill it yourself? I think someone was selling the moistureproof down
Have not tried both. Hammock will not compress to as small a bundle, due to bulk of velcro and zippers, if that is OK, go for it.
I think z-packs offers them as an option
Yes Dutch, we think titanium pole ends would be cool! Especially on the .625 size.
I was working with 10 d fabric so it is thin.. I sewed a piece of 1" herringbone trim to one side of the quilt, then sewed buttonholes through that piece. It gave enough reinforcement to take the...

On my homemade bridge hammocks, I larkshead my whoopies to a lanyard knot at the apex of the suspension triangle. It looks similar to the right hand side of the fifth photo of this post by TeeDee....
