    Here's a few pics of my HH with Snugpak UQ . You can see how the grosgrain loops on the sides of the UQ line up perfectly with the pullouts of the hammock, helping to pull the UQ out and create more open space inside as well as keeping it locked in place so it doesn't slip off your feet and shoulder at night when you move.







    Here's a pic of my JrB winter nest on the HH Expedition as well. You can see the slit in the quilt that marries to the mixed hook and loop of the Exped's entry slit, making it super easy to enter/exit with the quilt on.

    Those underquilts both look like a perfect match for the hammock!

    The JRB Nest & Winter Nest were designed specifically for classic Hennessy Hammocks: the slit in the quilt(s) marries to the bottom entry of a HH classic via mixed hook & loop, allowing for easy entry/exit when the quilt is on. It can also be left sealed to itself for use on other hammocks or if you have a HH classic and want the slit to be covered by the quilt to keep out drafts when the temps drop. I also used the Winter Nest for a month or so on my XLC when I replaced the HH Expedition, but ended up selling it and getting a 0° HG Incubator since it fit the XLC a little better. The Snugpak on the other hand, was my first UQ and I've used it on all my hammocks to this day. For the price it's a great budget option and will get you down to 32°. I did modify it some by adding shock cord on each end so it can be cinched up like cottage manufactured UQ's, and I changed the suspension so it now has a primary & secondary also like cottage made quilts do. The mods make it even better, and now I use it year round inside as well as 3 season outside.

    LOL!

    I just watched the video, can't remember if I watched it before. But at about 5:18, his description of the bottom entry demonstration: "a bit of a warning to your sensitive types----- It's very similar to a saturday night Carrick Stoners ( ? couldn't quite understand the phrase), first off you have to open the flaps, then there's a lot of wriggling and grunting, once you're in and finished, there's a nice sigh of relief". HA! Hilarious! And true!
