I haven't quite gotten around to this just yet. I've managed to finish my DIY pack, so that's finally out of the way. But, on the other hand, my disposable income has evaporated over the last couple of months (long story involving a fire at work), so I haven't gotten further than the oversized snake skins (which I love so far). I should be able to purchase suspension and Velcro (I saw an old Speer hammock in person recently that made me think regular Velcro might be the way to go over Omnitape; the Omnitape doesn't like to hold very well, judging by my No-Sniveler-esque head hole that I put in my top quilt) some time this month, and we'll go from there.
It's going to be a few months until I get around to doing an underquilt, since I need to save cash up. Still, I'd be more than happy to share any ideas I've got. And I'd be more than willing to kick around theories until the cats come home.
