    Video of my DIY IX UQ

    Quick video of my DIY IX UQ. I didn't take the time to edit, so it's as is for now.

    Shot this video near the Mt. Collins shelter on the AT. I took my wife for a very short hike there to video some gear and show her an AT shelter.

    Two layers of IX right now. I have a sinlge layer top quilt. The UQ could use another layer or a covering of ripstop for good measure.

    How much room does it take in the pack? IX doesn't compress much at all.

    I'll do a comparison shot tonight and post. I believe it's about the same as my packed BB.

    Here's a video comparing the packed size of the IX UQ to my packed WB BB Hammock. With compressing sack, the UQ would pack down very small. Total weight for 2 layer UQ, 1 layer TQ, and silnylon stuff sack is 1lb. I was off on my guess in the video.
