    I figured I would be out of the quilt market forever, but I've been hanging in my basement more lately. So one, I don't need so much insulation at 65°, and two, I feel kinda "wrong" about using my expensive quilts just at home.

    This may be a good option if I do even more hanging at home. And I'll want a cheap-ish top quilt to go with it.

    In your video you mention that you got a 20 and a 40 degree version. I'm curious on the comfort level of the 20 degree one in below the rated temps. I always enjoy your videos and come up to Michigan sometime and join us at a group hang!

    I’m very familiar with Apex Climashield as I’ve used AHE kaq products , Jared’s original synthetic quilt line as well as my synthetic Loco Libre . Unfortunately there has been this radical bi polar weather in VA .when I get the opportunity to camp with the trail winder it’s been low of 32. As of now it’s just wonderful . Now I’ve been to the apex climashelid rating down to 22 in my kaq & it served well but wouldn’t push it beyond

    I had the same thought...been using my HG Netless a lot in my basement and home office, both of which are a bit cool, and so just picked up a 40 degree Trail Winder. Figured it would be a nice alternative outdoors in the 60-80 degree weather too. So far I like it a lot, paired with this inexpensive fleece liner its perfect for in home use. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Thanks, I may try that for $15. Since the HG Econ line is pretty inexpensive, I may go that route for an UQ.

    And I'll likely be sleeping at home in the hammock a lot more starting soon.

    For an indoor UQ, before spending on anything, you could try making a no-sew whipped end "hammock" out of a blanket, and suspending that with shock cord below your hammock. Worth a shot for a fairly quick & easy DIY project. If it doesn't work, just take it apart and pretend it never happened.

    All my quilts are Econ series and there isn't a big price difference between the Trail Winder and 40 degree Econ. And in my opinion, they will pack up to about the same size. Like you, I debated between the TW and 40 Econ but ended up going with the TW just to try something different and for the synthetic aspect for humid/wet weather.

    I haven't spent too many nights it it yet, but so far I feel like one advantage the Trail Winder UQ has over a traditional but similarly priced UQ is not having to deal with the primary suspension at head or foot (sideways pressure/ suspension against foot or head), similar to the Wooki. For something I might primarily use in the house or out in the yard and not necessarily under extreme conditions, many of the advantages of down are nullified. I have several UQs of different types and from different manufacturers. Each has advantages and disadvantages compared to each other. For me, the Trail Winder is a welcome addition due to its versatility to layer with another UQ for extra warmth and UQP shielding properties, use in the house/ back yard as an easy, quick, comfortable, affordable "everyday" option and it seams easy to quickly adapt to different GE hammocks.

    ShortRound convinced me. Just ordered a 50 degree for the warm and humid conditions here in south Florida. I love the design.
