This really changed the PLUQ suspension to what it needed to be. I used shock cord with a lock cord for adjust-ability.
For the Grayson Highlands Hang that I went on, I pinned a down throw on the PLUQ (between the hammock and the PLUQ, not between the PLUQ folds). This brought the down throw up against me and I was warm and toasty. Last but not least, I added a hammock sock which was the bomb. I am now a firm believer in the sock
This is the time of year when those down throws usually pop up at all the stores and go on sale. I've been wondering what two throws put together would get me down to and then I could do away with the PLUQ entirely since the throws pack so much smaller and are so much lighter than the poncho liner. However; I can attest that the down throws work great paired with the PLUQ to help get you down in temps. (then add that sock, and wow
Thanks for the ideas, DivaB! Would you mind posting a photo (or directing me to one, if you've already done so) of the triangle thingies? I've got an idea of what they look like, but I'd like to see how you did it out of cord.

Thanks! I hope it works out for you.
