    Hey guys, several asked about the tarp that I was making. I know it's not a JCP underquilt but several on this thread have asked me about it so I thought I would post a few pics.

    It is 10' wide, 11' ridgeline 16' total length. My wife and I sleep under the same tarp so we needed it a little bigger than most. It comes in at 1.4lbs. The only thing that I still have to add is the pullouts. It is basicly the winter tarp design from DIYgearsupply, which is where I got my materials (Thanks Scott), with a few Honey Badger modifications. I hope to get the DIY video made but I still have to finish the JCP UQ one as well. Hitting the trail this weekend with a low of 30 so we will see how warm we stay.

    The Honey Badger Hilton!

    Up here in NH they were still at $14 as of Friday. I'm going to keep checking back though, just in case they drop here too.

    JC Penny Puffer gear

    After reading a ton of posts, tossing out an idea or two, reading a bunch more posts and spending some hard earned cash on 8 JC Penny Puffers, I made some gear with 4 puffers that I hope will keep me toasty warm.

    The TQ is 2 sleeveless jackets sewn together at the waist. One is folded towards the head opening and stitched to form a footbox and the other has two sets of sleeves (4 total) sewn in as wings (one set for width) and another set to add length. It covers up to my nose (I am 5'10") and weighs 24 oz. in stuff sack.

    the UQ is made from one sleeveless jacket sewn to a frame made from scrap material and Climashield in such a manner to allow a complete jacket to be zipped in and serve as the top layer. It allows me to use the jacket as a it was intended and also as a layer to the UQ. The UQ measures 54" x 38" and weighs 32 oz. with DIY bishop bag (2 JC Penny puffer stuff sacks sewn together). The weight might seem heavy until you consider that 14 oz. of it is a jacket that can zip out of the UQ and be used for a jacket and also it's bigger than usual UQs.

    The booties are made from one set of sleeves. I trimmed 3 sections from the cuff, outlined a sole (using a boot insole), stitched an outline and attached to the angled sleeve. I finished it with stretchy cuffs and added velcro to "clamp" on to strips of a Z Rest for the walks in the wee hours.

    Overall it was a lot of work and a few burned up brain cells but the outcome was worth it. Both the TQ and UQ are at least 2 layers thick and in some places up to four layers.

    Darnit, for some reason Buck I'm not seeing your pictures! And I really want to because I am building one for my RR as well! Do you have a link to them?

    Thanks
