    Hmm I have never had an issue with it getting very wet. This is after MANY trips in the PNW rain and snow. If it gets a few dew drops or some blow back rain splashing on it (which is why I bought it), I dont really worry about it. Besides, my UQ/UQP is not ever in the stuff sack that long anyway; when I get home it all gets hung and dried with a quickness. I suppose if it does get really wet (not sure how...its waterproof, wont hold water and dries quick) I would just store it separate until I could dry it. YMMV.

    Uh, how can you roll it and not have the wet side touch the dry side?

    Oh, you fold it first.

    I didnít expound enough: if the UQP gets wet and you stuff it with your quilt, how does your quilt not get wet from the moisture on the UQP?

    Might be overthinking this just a bit. Its really not complicated. As stated above, if my UQP gets really wet (which is never/rarely does...) I would just disconnect it and store it separate. Honestly, I dont really see why you UQP would get so wet? Again, I camp in nasty weather often (rain, snow, wind) and my UQP almost never gets wet. Occasionally I get some dew on it or something and it dries super fast just hanging there on the hammock before I pack up. I suppose if you were not using a tarp and it was very cold, you could get a decent amount of dew/frost on your UQP..if you had to pack it up right then I would just pack it separate.

    Iím glad to hear this works, Iím still pretty new to hanging and havenít been caught in any downpours yet and thatís why I asked. I always expect the worst when I havenít experienced it for myself, so I honestly didnít know how wet UQPís get. I figured if Iím just used to it being packed separately then I wouldnít need to change things if it does get wet.

    I might try it your way next time to see how I like it. Definitely one less thing to keep track of when packing, especially in the dark.

    Those stretchy expandable pouches/pockets on the backs of our packs are perfect fro wet gear.
