I got in a snazzy new under quilt today from you guys and forgot that it comes with the new suspension. So, I jumped on HF and looked up this thread and the directions were spot on for sure. Thanks again for the explanation and I have to admit, I am really loving the way this baby hangs on my hammy.
I may be missing something here but I don't understand the secondary suspension. Where do the lines on each corner of the quilt attach? I don't mean where they are attached to the quilt but where do the other end of the lines attach?
I must be doing something wrong then .I just monday got my new uq with the secondary suspension .I took it out after a test hang in the backyard Pretty cool.
So get out there and get my rig set up . installed uq as ussual then gave the secondary a little snugness all looked good fit very well .got down around high 40's i woke about 3am with a very cold backside , i sliped on and extra top and socks ,checked the uq best i could .It seamed to be right where i left it ,no sagging and not smashed aginst my back. when i got up and around i got to checking it out..
The secondary shock cord was lose all the way to the knot on all 4 corners . I then went to test them i found that the cord lock wasnt holding the shock cord in place.
They do close and lock but the shock cord just slips right through the cord lock.
Now i dont think this had anything to do with a cold night .im not sure maybe i didnt have the down evenly spread through out. maybe i hade the quilt too tight smashing the quilt .it didnt look that way in the morning.
need some advice
Just wanted to say that I tried out my new quilts for a week of cold camping. The first night I just used the S biners to clip it on much like I did with my SS UQ and ended up freezing cold all night long. After that I took the time to do it properly each night and was warm as can be. Can't wait for an excuse to go hammocking again!
I misread the explaination and thought my 40° Incubator had the new system, but it doesn't. I noticed this after I received my 20° last week. They both work fine for me, but I really like new version. I hung around 26° for a couple nights and stayed toasty. Much less messing around once in the hammock and there's no way this thing will slip off my shoulder like my 40° sometimes does!
Hey Adam, Any chance we may be able to see some instructions to retro-fit older quilts to the new secondary suspension?
