    Did you get the 3/4 or full length? Curious as to what you think about it after your outing.

But I still use the Ridgecreek with both GE hammocks, but especially with my Hammocktent 90 degree hammocks. When I am backpacking I typically go with a down UQ for good weather and an insulated pad for hinky weather. Another great use for the AHD is when weight and room are not constraints and abuse is more likely. For instance, if I am truck camping I wouldn't hesitate to take the AHD for a campground or roaded location because I know it will handle any potential abuse, keep me warm, and I have to worry less about losing an expensive piece of gear if Bubba, Flavia, or their kids happen across my campsite while I off on other pursuits, e.g .biking, fishing, floating, day hiking, and etc.
    Re: the AHE RC used on the 90*: as an inner quilt, or as a suspended outer quilt? With or without a pad in the pocket? Must work pretty good?

    Unfortunately I have committed not to reveal that information by a vendor who thought the idea was interesting enough to keep under wraps until they have had time to assess bringing it to market. Based on their posts they have been developing a number of projects over the year which means they are actively coming up with new ideas, but apparently have not had the time to press forward on this particular project.

    However, do not give up hope. Perhaps it will even turn up in Popular Science as a news scope similar to the "Prototype Truck X Spotted At Testing Grounds", e.g. Radical new Hammock Design Spotted, unfortunately we have been unable to wake testers for comment due to loud snoring from deep REM sleep.
