    UQ made from recycled TV insulation (poor man's IX)

    I made an under quilt using a combination of these plans for the hammock and tarp I made this fall using instructions here.
    The local rental place moves lots of TVs this time of year and they saved the insulation for me. Most of the sheets were long and wide enough. I used packing tape to piece together those that weren't.
    It's a 70-inch x 42-inch 3-layer UQ with ripstop from Joann's on top and bottom. It rolls up as small as the others in this thread and works great. It weighs 16 ounces with the shock cord.
    I've used it for a nap, but not overnight yet. It's very warm. I'll get a picture soon of all three.
    Thanks for the help!

    I made a 3 layer one for my 6'4" husband and had to increase all the length measurements by about a foot. I also ended up guess-ta-mating on the darts too. I didn't write anything down as I did each layer one at a time. I figured that as long as I had the length and width for the first layer the way I wanted it, that the next two layers just needed to be a bit smaller (with the 3rd layer the smallest). That way the air gap between each layer was maintained.

    Good luck.

    Hi, Can anyone help me? I am making the under quilt and I am 6'5". So I would like to make my UQ 7 ft in length. Is it necessary for me to keep the 48in width or can I leave the IX 60 inch width? I am tall and slim. Thanks for any help.

    Keep the width to 48". I'm 6'1" and skinny. Many user more narrow UQ's but I toss 'n turn so the extra width is nice. Please show us your results!

    I left mine at 60 and my wife loves it because it wraps around her no matter how she tosses and turns. We mostly canoe so the extra bulk is a non issue. There are some advantages to the extra witdth. Leaves room for error in suspending.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    I do most of my hanging in 40-60 degrees (which is pretty consistent in MN from June-September). Would it be possible to make a two-layer IX with a nylon outside that is connected to the hammock? I am new to the UQ idea (trust my foam pad)- so I am assuming there is a reason this doesn't work as all of the UQs I have seen are designed to be removed. Just wondering if this is possible...
