It has always been my private conviction that any man who pits his intelligence against a fish and loses has it coming.
Yep, my Mom even called me simple once... hey.... wait a minute!
Probably why I like making hammocks... (Hmmm, hem a rectangle, add rope...)
Looks very nice and warm! Ill be taking my fleece TQ out this weekend for spring mahha. It is just a sleeping bag liner from dicks that I got for $10. It was rated to "50 degrees" and to my suprise I found that to be pretty true. I took it down to 47 degrees the other day, and though a bit chilly it wasn't bad at all.
Got my fleece TQ out for a hang last night and was quite pleased. Low temp for the night was 48-50 F. I was a little cool but still pretty comfortable (I'm a fairly warm sleeper). Had good coverage but I think when I make a cold weather TQ I'll make it 3-4 inches longer to be able to tuck it under my shoulders a bit further...
Kinda hard to see a black TQ on a charcoal hammock especially with a flash trying to wash the color out but here it is...

I have found that I stay warmer if I have more insulation under me than on top of me. Try putting a torso pad between the poncho liner and the hammock and see if that makes you a little warmer.
I like those poncho liners. I'm considering making an overquilt out of one for summer.

I've had the PLUQ down to 42 with me in a heavier sleeping bag and was quite toasty (not just comfortable...I'm talkin toasty warm). I'm thinking about a fleece inner liner for the TQ to have 2 layers of fleece...pretty sure I was at the low edge of my comfortable temp range with just one layer of fleece and a layer of ripstop...
