    Interesting to see this 2013 post active again and see the same conclusions then as now - SP Under Blanket is inexpensive, works well, well built, but too heavy to use as a backpacking UQ.

    Also interesting is that I haven't seen any on the FS post and the venders can't keep them in stock due to high sales rate. I assume people keep them because they are handy to use around the house or on car camp trips. I have one, like it, and plan to keep it as well.

    I have used it with my Hennessy hammock. For the money, you can't beat it but it is a bit heavy and bulky. Worth a shot in my opinion.

    I use the Dd UQ and the snugpak TQ. I like both just fine, and have had them down to 40-ish with no problems. And I'm TERRIBLE about leaving my gear in the stuff sack to store, but haven't seemed to lose any insulating qualities after a year of use. A bit on the heavy side though.

    I absolutely love all my Snugpak gear, and I have A LOT of it. To make the UQ a bit lighter and easier to hang/adjust, the other day I swapped out the stock main shock cord for some reflective shock cord I had lying around that I got from Dutch for my old man winter tarp. I tied it into a continuous loop like my HG Incubator and added S biners on each end. Then to solve the problem of it sinking back to the middle, I added a secondary suspension in the fashion of my HG Incubator using the grosgrain loops on the corners and more reflective shock cord with small cord locks to adjust and bias it towards my head and feet. I had previously sewn channels on each end with shock cord to sinch it up like most other quilts as well. All that was left was to add a RL quilt hook on each end and it was done. Now it hangs exactly like my Incubator and CDT UQs' , is a little lighter, is more adjustable than stock and is easier to dial in which saves time and gets a better fit against the hammock. I'll post some pics today when I get the chance. It really is a great UQ, and now its even better.
