    crowsnest on asym hennessy?

    I'm looking for another underquilt, I have the jrb winter nest and love it. I want to save weight so looking at the crowsnest (almost 10oz less). Anyone use the crowsnest on a hennessy?

    I have one that I use on my HH Hyperlite, I didn't have Adam (Stormcrow) put on the loops to match up with the hammock pull out's, but it fit's great, not one problem! He make's a "GREAT" quilt! I had it out at the MAHHA hang and it got to 32* and with my Golite 3 season TQ I was toasty warm in my skivvy's!!!! I am a warm sleeper though, it that helps!?

    Good to hear. Looking for a UQ for my HH.
    I don't have the 2QZQ mod (yet, waiting til the end of summer when I get down to the States). Would I have issues adjusting it and using the bottom entry?

    Any reason you didn't get the pull outs that match the HH one?

    No real reason, I just forgot to tell him! But even without them it fit's great and since I have a 2QZQ zipper mod done to my HH if I need to adjust it all I have to do is open the zipper/adjust and good to go! Actually once I get it set I have the shock cord a little tight and it doesn't move alot! Now there are other quilt makers on here that make excellent quilts, and not to take anything away from them as their stuff can/will/and would perform just as good as Adam's quilt's, I just have a slight bias as the crowsnest is the only quilt I have so far!?!?

    As far as the bottom entry issue, I had mine sewn up when ZQ did my mod, but there are many here that still have it and have no problem, it just takes some fiddle-in with to get it set right, now if you have the bottom entry it might be best to have the asym tie out loop's put on for you which would take some of that fiddle factor out! But I will say that the 2QZQ mod made a world of difference, made a good hammock into a great hammock, and ZQ's work is down right perfect, never a complaint!!!!

    It will work fine on the HH. I don't have a crowsnest but have seen them in use and slept at a Holiday Inn Express. Storm makes a great quilt A couple hints to keep it simple

    When its cold don't use the side tieouts on the HH and let the quilt wrap up around you more.

    Bring the shockcord across the top of ridgeline instead of letting it hang down from suspension cords

    Use an additional shockcord asym across the top. One end will attach to loop near shoulder and the other near feet. I attach to the "inside" of HH tieouts. This allows the quilt to be pulled up all the way to the tie out. On one side of tieout you have the quilt suspension and on the inside of tieout the additional cord. This allows the quilt to be adjusted along the length of the hammock as needed without being locked into one attachment point.

    Yes ... functions perfectly.

    If you have the 2QZQ mods ... it's easier to adjust while in it ....

    ===> I will be searching (soon) for a 3 season UQ for my HH Exped Asym. There are several people here who make UQs, and I soon will be asking them a lot of questions! Well, not too many. It's not rocket science - just fit and R-Ratings!! LOL!

    But seriously, Although I HATE cold weather with a passion, this new hobby may just be a way to continue to enjoy the outdoors and LAUGH - MMWWAAAhahahahaa! at Old Man Winter!

    Yes, but a JRB Nest is even easier.
