My first question for the forum is in reference to making a UQ out of a sleeping bag. I watched a video in YouTube and it looked very easy to make and wondering if it will work with my HH Explorer w/zipper?
This video is of the modified bag:
Givin the knowledge and experience in the hammock world here in the forum. I am wanting some input and any thoughts you might have. I have been looking at many videos on YouTube trying to gather some knowledge about an underquilt on the cheap as they say. I ran across this video and wonder if a 40" x 90" top zipper bag modified like the one in video. Would it be acceptable and also practical for use with my HH Explorer as an underquilt? My main concern with this bag would be, Will it fit around my hammock and serve the purpose?
I found one of the bags at Walmart for $35. Here is a review of the bag which describes its features. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wl96Wl7uqBQ
I dont plan on being in lower than 30 deg F and have a 40 deg Coleman sleeping bag and also my backup Softie 9 Hawk that I can slip inside the Coleman, even though I cant zip it up do to my shoulder problems and the restriction . But everything I have read, recommends a pad or underquilt. Weigh is not going to be an issue as I will be traveling via motorcycle from Florida to LasVegas and back over a 2 month period.
Any and all input would be greatly appreciate.
