    Thanks,i used 1 kg of goose down but i have no idea on the loft factor.

    The baffels are 80mm high and there is a slight overstuffing reducing effiency.

    I hope i can get to -15C at least.

    Ive used the quilt the last 3 days but its way too hot.
    Its spring here and been sitting on around 17C.


    I wont truly know untill i go south at xmas.

    Its summer then but last year it SNOWED down to 800m(i was at 405m asl) and it was rather nippy for me-never been camping in those temperaturs before.

    Ok so I forgot to mention something, not sure if it matters or not but im pretty sure that my hammock is a double hammock. Do I need a bigger UQ or would a Regular on work? Also im thinking about cutting down the sides and re-sewing it to where it isn't so wide or do some cheap spreader bars or something.

    I would not cut down the width.

    Width and length = comfort.

    Theoretically you should not need a different sized underquilt if you lay the same in the double as you would in a single.

    Matching is always the best though,and you could then maximise your comfort with the correct size underquilt.

    Check out shug's vids.

    Im very sure he has covered EVERYTHI G that can popup,and in such an hilarious way too
