Hope some of you HH Pro's can give me your thoughts.
I posted this on another thread and I guess I didnt ask the right questions for some input. If someone has a HH Explorer Deluxe Zip or knowledge about this and could tell me if this sleeping bag will work as the guy in the describes. I would be greatly appreciative on your thoughts. If it wont fit and work as the video describes, then I dont want to waste my time and ruin a perfectly good sleeping bag. Whether it will fit around the hammock sufficiently is my main concern.
My first question for the forum is in reference to making a UQ/Pea Pod? (Incorrect description from lack of experience) 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? Having the bag slip over the hammock if it were real cold. Or use the bag as a TQ if sufficient.
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 KMart for $16. Here is a review of the bag which describes its features. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wl96Wl7uqBQ
I dont plan on being in no lower than 30 deg F and have a 40 deg Coleman sleeping bag. I plan on getting the wider "Blue Pad" from walmarts. But everything I have read, recommends a pad or underquilt. Weight 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.
