I ordered the fabrics from the dealers and had them mailed to Hammock Gear. I wanted to cut down the weight. I know I could have saved more had I went with Momentum 55 for the outer shell or even SevenD, but both cost about $20 more per yard than the M90 did.
I am loving the weight savings and the warmth these are putting out. I will be taking them on a trip very very soon and will post a full trip report, including a review, then.
How did the length work out for you with the mod?
David; having quilt envy
67" instead of the advertised 74".
I also opted for the sewn foot box. I am very happy I went that route. I couldn't have standed the snaps and a gap for cool air.
I just got mine a couple days ago.
Impressed with how light it was and with the fit and finish. At first I thought it was the 40*F but after I weighed it I saw that it matched the 20*F specs.
I haven't tried it outside yet but I'm a little skeptical that this will see me comfortably down to 20*F - It's my first down anything so I hope to be proved wrong.
I slept with it on the couch for the last two days and it doesn't seem to be any warmer than just a regular thick blanket.
Hoping it works out.
Looking at the HG website, I would have expected that using lighter fabrics would have ended up with a lighter UQ, I'm wondering if others are noticing a difference in weight compared to the HG site. Unless I went with more down? I do notice that My UQ has draft tubes on either side...hmm. Curious.
Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.
Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
Yep on the draft collars. I contacted Adam & Jenny and they said that I'd have them! I don't mind the extra couple of oz's to cut out on the air movement.
