    No, it would be called "compressed under your weight, and useless". UQs only work when allowed to loft, otherwise they lose a lot of R-value.

    If I'm understanding the pics I'm seeing, it seems like you could use a 1/2 or 2/3 UQ, over the bugnet and between the pockets. Put some clothes or something in the pockets.

    I just connected a JRB under quilt to a Chrysalis I got yesterday.

    I had already modified it with shock cord along the entire length. I used mini biners and connected the 4 corner tie outs of the JRB to the 4 tie out points that the Chrysalis has at the outside ends of each spreader bar and then snugged up with the shock cord to the main suspension lines.

    Pulled the UQ right up maybe 6" above the sides and then tucked the entry flap in between the UQ and hammock.

    Snug as a bug in a rug.

    Can you post some pics of the set up for us?

    Right now I am placing a very light sleeping bag on the inside of the hammock to help. I'm not having any issues with it and I'm not getting the CBS that one can expect with out an UQ, but with the sides as shallow as they are, it likes to fall out a little bit.

    I have been looking at the Mt Washington for a little while thinking that it would do the trick, but not sure how the ends would sit where the end pockets are.

    The JRB fellows were discussing ways of making UQs fit a Chrysalis at Mt. Roger's a few weeks ago. If they don't chime in, you should PM them.

    Pictures say a thousand words but since I don't have a pic yet I'll give you the thousand words

    A few months back I watched a video of the War Bonnet UQ and how it hangs with shock cord so I did myself a little project and ran scock cord through the top edging on my Mount Washington convertible. Worked great on my BB where it would stretch sideways and loop up over my feet and up over my left shoulder and stay in place.

    I used the same process on the Chrysalis by using the JRB mini biners attached to the EC top cover just under the ends of both spreader bars where there is a small loop for I suppose attaching guy out lines. Since I had a lot of SC on it I ran it up to the main suspension line and binered it there.

    Then I ran a small shock cord from the gathering cords that are in the centre of the UQ head and foot ends up to the biner at the top.

    Sounds complicated but works like a charm and keeps the sides of the UG about 6" higher that the hammock body where it dips lowest in the centre.

    Yesterday I was thinking about cold camping so I put my summer 2/3 UQ inside between the hammock and the full length UQ and it was the perfect size to attach to the hammock the same way I did the MW3 UQ, with the same mini biners at the head end spreader bar. The lower part of the summer UQ wa tied to the main UQ where JRB has the split for converting the MW3 from 2/3 to full and has ribbon.

    That night I woke up sweating on my back so it's definately working fine and gives 5 different options of how much insulation is needed.

    I tried a lot of pads in the EC and don't like any of them, the bare hammock is by far the easiest and most comfortable to use. Sleep in it every night since I got it on closeout for $99

    I did cut the head end spreader bar down by two inches though so the fabric up there was more relaxed under my head and this stopped me from sliding down into the hammock further than I wanted.

    Sold my BB because I like this one so much

    Have you done the mods to the unit to make it lighter for the trail? I want to start ordering the parts soon so I make it more compact and fit in my pack more.

    Eventually I would like to try another type of hammock but funds are a little tight right now, so I will use what I have and love every minute of it.

    I travel mostly by motorcycle so the weight doesn't bother me. I can see how changing the main suspension would save weight and if you have a tarp then get the bug screen and not use the camper top.
