This last weekend I had a catestrophic failure of my UQP. We were on a scouting trip, and hanging near a rocky streambed where hammocks were the only option. I could't find a place to pitch a tent within 600 yards or so. It was really tough to find trees that would supplort a hammock. We were pitched about a foot off the ground, and when I went to climb into the hammock I had a problem. I had attached my UQP to my hammock via the gossgain on the UQP which matched perfectly to the reflective tabs on my hammock. As I climbed into my hammock one of the rocks I was standing on shifted, and I fell. My hand caught the UQP and my UQ and missed the hammock completely. The UQ and UQP went to the ground, shredding the end of th UQP and making it useless. Closer examination revealed no damage to the hammock ($250), nor to the underquilt ($195). So the UQP, the lowest cost item of the bunch gave way. It actually looks like a lighter and a larks head hitch will restore it to the intended function. I wil try repairing it next week so that it will be ready for my hunt next month.
