    I really got a chance to test the new breathable under quilt protector over the last 3 day.
    Took a pulk trip up to Kenosha Pass Colorado (10,400 ft above sealevel) for 3 day and 2 nights had 1 1/2 days of sustained winds of 15mph with gusts to 45mph.
    The UQP performed flawlessly.

    Nice addition to the 2QZQ product line. Definitely like breathable outer layers.

    UQ Protectors

    Two questions:
    What is the weight of each protector?
    Is the "breathable" protector also water resistant?
    Thanks

    And wind proof or at least highly wind resistant?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Yes, I think that is a fair statement. Tightly woven ripstop and calendaring of the material makes that possible. OutandBack has been testing it for us and can speak to the resistant properties.

    Although I have not performed any tests where I removed the UQP and then reinstalled it to see or measure the difference.
    I believe the UQP is doing a great job of blocking the wind, snow and providing a small dead air space to help hold in heat.

    Would it insulate me in 50F weather without additional insulation?... No I don't believe it would.
    Would it help hold a light blanket up against the bottom of the hammock?... yes I believe that would work great.

    The UQP adds a second layer to your hammock keeping the mosquito from biting your bottom.

    You can also store extra clothing between the layers. It's one pretty cool piece of hammock kit, IMO

    The material has a good feel to it. Strong but light.

    Earlier this week I was hanging is some pretty strong winds. Winds that whipped the snow around pretty good.
    One evening snow was flying up under the tarp and all around me. I was so glad the UQP was installed it just gave me a little piece of mind.

    The UQP did a great job of keeping this snow from between my hammock and down UQ. The UQP also did a great job of holding the UQ in position under me.
    I like this breathable UQP a lot. It is basically lives on my hammock now. No reason to ever remove it.

    On my facebook page I have a few pictures of the 2QZQ UQP in action if you want to check them out. No FB account required.

    i just got mine. and quickly got to string it up in the basement on my new HHUL with zip mod 4. 2 great items from 2qzq.

    i'm hoping it will fit on the jrb bridge too. the shockcord should be long enough to go corner to corner. if not i'll just add length i'll find out later today.

    from outnbacks report.. i know this is the UQP will be just the ticket on all my gathered end hammocks, and very likely the bridge.

    headed to the ohio woods for some testing this weekend. .

    Just updated the website. The weight is 7ozs. and because it is a calendared material, is somewhat wind and water resistant.

    The website says there is a waterproof syl version of it, and a breathable ripstop version.
