Just out of curiosity... I've been rolling ideas through my head lately about a UQ of sorts. I was thinking that if I could find a large enough down or similar type of mens parka, I could convert it to a type of UQ. So I made a quick stop by a local thrift store... no parkas but they did have some brand new mens 4x light weight jackets for like 12$. Its huge, lightweight, waterproof/windproof shell & light fleece lining. It's basically a big rectangle. I know as a coat it's really warm because I am familiar with the brand from past work experience in the uniform world, so I think it would definitely be warm. I think with a few modifications I could make it work as a UQ. I should say I sleep with a pad and am just looking for a little bit extra in the protection and warmth area so I can hang in colder temps. I'm in a HH would like it basically to fit really closely to the underside of my hammock. I'm need minimum space between it and my hammock. Maybe I could even use it as a place to slide an extra pad in. What do you think? I'm still tampering with the idea. Just thought I would throw it out there. Oooooo.... what if I could make it kind of like a poncho so it would be a multi-purpose piece? To modify I would pull off the hood and sleeves (they could be reused for there intended purposes), pull out the side seams, I don't think it had pockets, and I think it was a pullover type jacket. That would leave me with a really large rectangle that would simply need to be cut to the desired dimensions. Again this is a really large jacket (almost as wide as my hammock). If I cut it to fit the shape of the hammock I think it would fit perfectly. Ok, so that alot of ideas, let me know if this is crazy. At least it is a cheap crazy.
