I agree ( based on use of the similar WB Climashield torso UQ.) with one possible exception. Though this is a claim I only make for using 2 pieces of gear together. That is the combo
of the JRB MWUQ and BMBH
. I find that there is really nothing to adjust with this system, other than just making sure you don't pull it too ridiculously tight. If I attache it about as loose as it will go, it still works out OK. But usually I just put UQ loops through the hammock loops, attach to the suspension lines which stay on the all winter, do the same on the other end, and I'm essentially done. I might fine tune by then slightly tightening the suspension, but it only takes a slight adjustment. And it still seems to be snug enough if I do nothing. Really, this quilt is almost a custom over the head to below the toes fit for THIS ONE hammock with both straight out of the shipping box.
And once it's on, it stays pretty much adjusted even if you stuff the whole shebang into one stuff sack.
But all this rave about "easy to use" is only for the combo. Used on a gathered end hammock, there is going to be more fuss than with my WBUQ. But still not a big deal, still easier than most what with no worries about compression, and once I got it all arranged, once again, it all pretty much stayed together. But, it certainly took me more initial set up( used with my War Bonnet Black Bird) than my WB torso and a leg pad.
I bet the Snugfit also is pretty easy and stays put once adjusted, but I don't have personal experience.
Now don't get confused folks: Despite me being so impressed with that JRB combo(warm head to toe no matter how I thrashed around
), I am still quite enamored with my WB CS torso with a leg pad or no pad. In fact, it is maybe my overall fav for early summer through early fall in the south, after I removed 3 layers! I can't remember exactly, but I think it only weighed roughly 9 oz, and there are really no moisture concerns with it or the leg pad. If I even use a leg pad in the summer.
It's only flaw is that, sadly
, I don't think it works quite right on my JRB bridge.
But right now, I still am more in need of a portable, lightweight AC. I was just hanging in the woods in the JRB BH a couple of hours ago. It turned out to be quite pleasant listening to the animal and other woods noises. But I sure was grateful for the Frogg Toggs Chill Pad, the evaporative cooling coming off off my wet back in the hammock, the deep shade and the ice cold water I had with me. I needed all of that just to be able to lay there very long. Come on fall and winter, hurry!
