Testing will continue as the temps drop this fall.


    I'm really anxious to see a BB in person. Would the ultra flat lay more closely resemble a bridge hammock, as far as underquilts are concerned?

    I have used my TQ/UQ using Climashield Combat down to 30*f but felt I was pushing the limits, good luck with your testing
    IMO, UQs on the BB are "different" (not worse or better) because of the more distinct diagonal. I use a 2/3 UQ + ccf pad under my legs in all seasons...(my winter UQ is cut asym) it just works better for me. A full length UQ is tricky around the footbox.
    Compared to a bridge (I also have a BMBH), my winter Warbonnet Yeti is diff/asym cut and doesn't fit a bridge as well as a gathered end hammock. My other rectangle cut UQs work equally well 3 seasons. The rectangle bridge is easy to fit a rectangle UQ on. Again IMO, a bridge would not work well with darted UQs

    So..............if Im understanding the whole concept correctly, with a Speer type hammock (non asym, no pull outs) I dont really need darts. Is that why people make "coffin" shaped quilts?

    IMO, no. My UQs have worked fine down to 20ish*F without darts on hammocks without single point pullouts

    The main reason to shape like a coffin is to save weight by cutting out fabric around your legs
