    Wooki color?

    I want to get a Wooki XL underquilt for my BB XLC. It is a second generation XLC with the single zipper removable bugnet in the original dark green/olive green color. The color pallets on the website are so small I can't decide with color would be the the best match either olive green or dark foliage. I also want to use the Wooki with my multicam/dark olive chameleon. Which color do you all think would look best to compliment both hammocks?

    My only thoughts are to consider picking a Wooki color that contrasts with your hammock. If they are the same color (or close), it's easy to sit in the Wooki as opposed to the hammock. Splat! Ask me how I know? Ask me twice. (sometimes I'm not a quick learner)
    The game is the best teacher.

    The Foliage Green is quite a bit darker and more of a greyish green where the Olive is a brighter green if that helps. I have a SL Olive and a DL Foliage Green XLC and I use a Brown Wooki for them and it looks good to me, I like the contrasting colors. It's also a good way to help ensure that you don't accidentally miss your hammock and sit in your UQ .

    From what I can tell the foliage green is darker than my XLC and the olive green looks like it is lighter and more greenish than the XLC. I'm leaning toward the foliage green since it looks like a closer match to the dark olive on my chameleon. Of course I could always go with the copper brown.

    I just picked up a diamondback TQ in foliage green. It is much darker than I expected. It is almost more of a charcoal color with just a hint of green to it. I am not complaining, it was an in-stock 0 degree TQ and beggars canít be choosers. I actually like it a lot. Not positive, but I think the wooki on the right is the standard olive green. Hope that helps some.

    What you see as their "outside" fabric /insulation/ is olive green. The inside fabric and hammock is dark foliage.

    Thanks so much for the photos. It makes so easy to see the color differences. I've decided to go with the dark foliage. It is so dark that it is a good contrast with the XLC color and I think it will look good on the multicam Chameleon also.

    I just got ( about 3 weeks ago ) a Winter Camo Wooki. Wanted to have the inner color in blaze orange but due to the way they are built it was too much so I opted for total winter camo. Got to use it last weekend and while at first I was not sure I liked the way it fit compared to traditional UQ's, I found that it did the job and kept me warm. I always try and make sure all my UQ's and TQ's are different colors from each other so every thing contrasts, making it easier to tell which is what. When I first started hanging I got two UQ's and TQ's ( set for me and wife ), all in the same camo pattern. I packed to join some friends on an over night in the woods. Hiked into the campsite, set up my rig only to find out I packed two TQ's. I had a DL hammock so I slipped one of the TQ's in-between the two hammock layers. I was cool that night but survived. After that, everything I order has different color combinations.
    I am still 18 but with 49 years of experience !
