    Video: Climasheild DIY gathered-end UnderQuilt

    When I first started getting into the DIY aspect of hammock camping, I was daunted with the thought of making my own underquilt. As I got deeper into DIYing my gear, I realized that an UnderQuilt is really no more than a few straight stitches and some rolled hems (Easy peasy, lemon squeezey!).

    I have been trying to perfect my UnderQuilt and while not perfect, I have found a way that works well for me. The video below is the first in a group of vids that shows how I make my UnderQuilt.



    Here is a link to the facebook album (I hope) that shows some close-up pictures of the gathered end underquilt.

    I source my materials for this project thru:
    Arrowhead Equipment

    D.I.Y. Gear Supply

    Hancock Fabrics and/or Joann Fabrics for the 1.5" grosgrain

    Thanks, I appreciate it. I enjoy putting these together. I figure i am making the gear anyway, I might as well video the process.

    Here is a little back story if you are interested.

    Santa must have connections. Where do you plan on getting it? I have been getting mine from Paul at Arrowhead but he has been out of stock for almost a year. Not sure where I will be getting my next batch.

    Thru Hiker has Apex (5 oz.) listed on their website. Outdoor Wilderness Fabric has 6 oz. (as well as 3 other weights) listed. Don't know whether either currently has it in stock though.
