    Discoloration on TQ

    Hey guys,
    Took my hammock down and noticed that my top quilt had 'blotches' all over it. No idea what it is from. I wasn't sweating at all, or spilled anything. It was pretty muggy and seemed to be 'damp' st times when the temp dropped. Any idea what it could be or if it will wash out. I was wearing a shirt, shorts, and socks as well.20190814_141152.jpg

    I don't see anything. Probably just condensation.

    You might be right - looks like a classic case.

    See if this one is better. If you zoom in on the photo, you can see the darker splotches. And its on the outside of the quilt, not the inside against my body.

    How long (in the pic) was it from when you woke up?

    It very well could be normal condensation from your your body as you sleep. Moisture passes from you to the outer shell of your quilt. Physics. It could also be from your breath.

    If it's bee days, however, I have no clue.

    That looks like damp "dark" down to me. Which quilt manufacture is this? Is this quilt duck down as it's darker and can have a smell when wet.

    Condensation gathers on the outside of the quilt, not the inside against your body.

    I made that statement in regards to the assumption of sweat -which be on the inside.
    It is a Hammock Gear Eco TQ.
    And to clarify i have a Burrow UQ too with none noted on it.
