    Pics of my new Crowsnest UQ

    Thought I'd post a few pics of my new UQ made by Stormcrow. Can't wait to use it! Should be good into the 20's.

    Purty. How does the suspension work? How do you get it in the sweet spot?

    The suspension is customizable. Getting into the "sweet spot" is pretty easy since the quilt is 45"wide x 51"long.

    Yes sir. Got some Black Diamond Ergo Corks waiting under the tree! You guys really enlightened me on the use of trekking poles. Climbing that muddy slope in the Sipsey was a little difficult with only a wood stick.

    Like Stormcrow says the quilt is huge. I'm 6'2" 228lbs and it covers from just above my shoulders to just below my knees. I've got broad shoulders and the sides wrap up high on both sides.

    The blue color is cool too!

    Notice the orange line locks for cinching the ends, these are great for low light conditions in the woods. Nice extra touch.
