    Cumulus underquilts with Hennessy zip hammocks?

    I'm trying to decide whether to order a Cumulus Selva underquilt for my Hennessy Explorer Ultralight Zip. Have people here experiences on Cumulus underquilts with Hennessy hammocks? Do they work ok with the asymmetric diagonal lay? Can you use the underquilt's side attachment points together with the Hennessy side anchor cords to make sure the underquilt stays in diagonal?

    (I'm also still trying to decide between M/L versions of full-length Selva 300/450 or a 3/4 Selva 250, as well as whether to go 20F (450) or 35F (250/300), but that's another story.)

    Didnt try cumulus on hennessy hammock. But I dont see any reason why it should not fit. The underquilt is wide enough so that you can set your diagonal lay without any problem. I would not worry about that.

    I am 182cm high and I use M sized versions of all their quilts.

    Hennessy Hammocks are standard gathered end hammocks - so any underquilt made for GE hammocks will fit, including the Selva. However, with my HH I found that the hammock tie-outs are not well placed: they tend to pull the quilt suspension out and can create a channel for cold air. My solution was to not use the tie-outs and live with the net in my face rather than feeling cold. These days I only use a Wooki, as it isn't suspended from the four corners and fits hammocks much better. I sleep very cold, though. If you don't, you might not feel the air channels.

    You won't be able to get full benefit of the hammock tieouts. A "Wooki-style" uq is much better for HH.
    Feel free to check out my Fimbul Twister UQ, made for HH http://fimbulgear.dk/?product=fimbul-twister-hh-dun

    Look at arrowhead Potomac. Fairly inexpensive and totally built to fit a Hennessy hammock. Got my 3season a while back and itís flawless.

    Thanks for the suggestion, but I'm looking for an underquilt that can be found here in Europe, taxes and tarifs make it too expensive to order from US, and I don't think Potomac is available here.
