    Speer Snug Fit

    Has any one tried out the new Snug Fit Under Quilt by Speer? I am interested to see how it works with the HH

    I have a pic of it attached to my HH clone. The pic shows it clipped to the side tie out on my hammock. I used a prototype in Hot Springs and didn't even clip it to the side tie outs and it still worked great. It comformed to the hammock once I got in. The Snug Fit is really an awesome quilt. It's not cheap but it's the best down under quilt out there, IMHO.

    BTW, welcome to the forum. Great to have another Kentucky hanger.

    I've used mine the last two weekends. It is truly great. Worth the extra weight in my pack.
    I also have the orgininal model of JRB nest. I think I must be the only person in the entire world that cannot rig my nest without compression under the feet. Not to knock this product, or Jacks. They always provide perfect customer service.
    Th Snugfit however, is worth the big price tag. I have never slept this well out bush before.

    Bison 2, welcome aboard, glad to have you with us. Nice to see another Kentucky hanger near the area. I tried out a Snugfit prototype in Hot Springs as well. The temperature got cool as about 44 at night, but I was warm and toasty the whole night. I didn't even zip up my bag, I just pulled it over me as a quilt. The Snugfit is a tad pricey, but well worth every penny. It's definitely a first quality piece of gear.

    One thing that I liked and did not like about it was the plets on the sides to give to the natural shape of the hammock. It think that is a big reason why it fits so nice, but I like my UQ to pull double duty as a top quilt. I think it would work in a pinch as one though.

    The only major downsides I can think of is the cost and weight. But these are relative things to each hammocker.

    Still it is a great piece of gear, and more importantly a good step foward in UQ.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Thanks for the feed back. I may just have to give the SF a whirl. You are right, it is a little $$$ but, a good nights sleep...priceless. I sleep a little on the cold side and have been researching UQ info. The Snug Fit may be just the ticket Iam looking for

    Since you are so close to me, we could meet somewhere in the near future and you could check out my SF if you want.

    That would be great! I would really love to get a look at the SF up close and see how it sets up etc. Maybe we could get a group of us to meet at RRG? Guess that is another topic for posting

    Sounds like a plan to me. There are a few members here in Kentucky. Maybe we can settle on a date.
