    New UQ? The ParkaQuilt

    I have recently made an inexpensive (if you have the materials handy) and multiple use UQ. I took my Marmot Zeus down jacket and on each side connected shock cord by ribbon loops using just a quick by hand sew. I also made my sleeves inside out to add more insulation inside and also just to have a place for them to sit. If you are a lightweight backpacker/camper looking for a multi use item or just cheap, this is for you! Ask any questions needed.

    kinda the same thing as the JRB quilt they had out a few years back.. it turned into a vest and you could add JRB sleeve to make it a jacket...

    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
