Speaking of UQ protectors, had another idea when I woke up one morning. This means that it will be awesome as a concept or as a failure. My idea would be to make a hammock sock with the ability to turn into an UQ protector. This would not be for gram counters, but some people (Shug?) enjoy one over the other. Why not make something that could be both and then if really terrible weather hits you are ready with the sock for added protection.
I would create another shockcord tunnel out of the ripstop a bit less than halfway between the bottom of the sock and the top. Sock would be the shockcord-closed variety with the slightly open top. I will try to find the links to the threads these ideas came from. Hopefully it would not be annoying to remove and re-thread shockcord or have some line. The excess gets put under the protector/UQ/Hammock.
Anyone done this?
