    Buying underquilt in EU?

    Does anyone out there know of someone in EU who sells underquilts?
    I donīt like the idea of buying from outside EU and get a big surprise when I have to pay a massive fee to get my UQ out from customs.
    Iīve searched but havenīt found any supplier of underquilts in EU.

    Someone who knows?

    There is always this one:

    http://www.ddhammocks.com/products/underblankets

    Or you could try to contact Unsponsored from this site - he does some nice custom down work, and he is based in England.

    I've been wanting a new car for a long time... I'll trade you my brand new Winter Incubator for a Ferrari.... Since you're from Sweden, I'll accept a Koeniggsegg too

    Hmm!
    Iīll probably have to goto Arjeplog and try to hi-jack one of the test-cars they have there. But I donīt think they have Ferrari or Koenigsegg there. Would a BMW or Audi do?

    I would also like a WI but my AW donīt agree.......

    BMW and Audi are both fine cars, but are nowhere near enough payment for my Incubator
    Get your hands on a Koenigsegg (and pay the fees for getting Danish license plates on it) and you got yourself a deal

    Ask your US-supplier to attach a discounted bill to the package. Customs do not know whether the price of a under quilt is $100 or $300. So pay $300 and ask for a $100 bill.

    Succes

    underquilt in the UK

    Bieggolmai -- I use a survival tube (the tube, not the bag) as my underquilt. Just peel it apart along the seams (so it becomes a blanket) and tie it at both ends around your hammock (it will cinch up nicely under your hammock). It will block the wind, cold and any moisture....and keep you warm by reflecting your own body heat back toward you. They're made in the UK, and they only cost about $35 U.S. Go to www.blizzardsurvival.com

    That almost seems like it could be a peapod type of thing.
