    MMG IX UQs - Major Improvements!

    For those of you who have ordered IX UQs and Jerry Chairs, but have not received them, take heart! Your wait will be well worth it.

    I've made major improvements to the way the IX UQs and Jerry Chairs are constructed!

    • The basic two layers of the IX UQs are no longer separate. They are stitched together, then turned inside out, so the finished product looks much better. Of course, inserts are still separate and nestable.
    • All the darts are on the inside, between the layers, so that their bulk provides additional spacing between the layers, just as do the InsulTubes.
    • The IX UQs are now Differential Cut! The outer layer is slightly larger than the inner layer, making it easier to suspend. It will be less critical that you hang the IX UQ without it being tight against the hammock.
    • The edges are no longer bound with grosgrain, which makes them even lighter!


    I can't wait to hear from the folks whose IX UQs and Jerry Chairs I will complete this week and next!

    So, if I like the IX/Jerry Chair/UQ I got about 4 weeks ago, do I need to be envious of the kids that get theirs next week?

    Mine worked great for my hike, although it did not drop below 52*

    The Jerry Chair will look even better, but it's the IX UQs that really benefit from these changes!

    Sweet!

    Great news! Now I'm glad I haven't received mine yet! Looking forward to trying it out.
    Today is a bad day to be unprepared...

    The basic two layers of the IX UQs are no longer separate. They are stitched together

    Would that be the MMM, "Muttering Millergear Mod"?

    Well, your suggestions certainly helped... I was already thinking about sewing layers 1 & 2 together last week. You helped me decide that it had merit beyond what I was thinking at first.

    well hopefully one day i will get to see one on a hammock.

    I know you are working with those other folks on here (name escapes me) but will they make them like this or is this just when you make them?
