    Just Jeff and Risk experimented with integrated UQs- try searching for "down hammock" on Just Jeff's site (tothewoods.net) and have a look at what Risk was doing (imrisk.com)
    my hammock gear weights total: 2430g (~86oz)
    Winter: total 2521 (~89oz)
    (see my profile for detailed weights)

    gram counter, not gram weenie!

    I had the exact response to this thread - this was going to be my 1st DIY hammock project, ordered all my material from DIY Gear Supply.

    Showed it to a friend that really knows her way around a thread injector and she said it would be hard - so she is going to help me

    I hope to learn a lot from her

    I"m getting ready to try making one myself, but have a quick question.

    the instructions say to cut the top and bottom covers like the top and bottom patterns for the IX. Does this mean I cut the same pleats in the cover or just cut to the final size of the pieces?

    thanks,
    dave

    Yes, but I sewed on the pleat/ dart lines first, then you can cut the excess or just leave it

    I'm so excited to start this project, for my trip in July! Should only be hitting lows of 40*. But I'll post vids and finished product, and review around June!

    Yup, do the pleats. This way the curve of the quilt is maintained.

    finished it. posted it at http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=52248 since it is not just the UQ.

    I have my UQ sewn, but have a quick question regarding the shock cord. I have two pieces in the short ends (~42 inches) with one end sewn into the grossgrain and the other with a cord lock. I have one long piece (~30 ft) going through one long end across the short end, but not in the channel, then back through the other long end, inside the channel.

    How do I figure out how long of a piece I need to keep? Do I sew one end in the channel like the short ends or tie them together in a big loop? Not sure how this last piece goes together. I guess it would also help to see how it attaches to the underside of the hammock. I'm planning on making some cord only triangle thingies.

    thanks,
    dave

    Run the loose ends through a cordlock so you have a long loop. Adjust the cordlock until you figure out how large a loop is ideal for your particular hammock. Then you can tie it tight and lop off the loose ends - make it a little longer than necessary, and use the cordlock to tighten it up. I loop the ends around the end gather of my hammocks (Warbonnet style) - if you use a different end gather hammock then you can clip it to your suspension line. The triangle thingies, if you end them with mitten hooks, can clip to the shock cord and pull it up tight to combat any droop.

    Hope that makes some bit of sense.
