    It will work reasonably well. The main thing I would suggest is not to pull the side tieouts on the hammock super tight. That will reduce the bathtub shape of the hammock and make the quilt more susceptible to shifting on you. Otherwise the Jarbidge will work on just about any hammock made.

    I like them so much I have 3 of them. I take the extras to group hangs to lend out to folks who want to try one and or forgot to bring a UQ.

    I just ordered my Jarbridge (and a couple whoopie suspensions, and triangle thingies) today on the Anniversary Sale. Really looking forward to giving it a try. I have a Klymit Static V insulated pad I'm using now and will probably keep using because it's so comfortable and will go under my feet, but I'm looking forward to having an underquilt. Take your time, Paul and make it nice and warm.

    I use the Jarbidge on my Hennessy and it works just fine. As Paul said, don't tie the sides out too far. Sometimes, I don't tie mine out at all, or sometimes just tie one side out, it's up to you. You will be nice and warm though, no matter which way you choose.

    Same here, just ordered my 1st one. Now I will have another "short" Climashield UQ other than the Yeti that my son always claims, so I can use one also for a change!
    Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.

    So I guess this would be the same for the Safari? I know that it is bigger...inquiring minds want to know....especially since I order 2!

    The thing to remember is that you're not insulating the hammock your insulating the user inside the hammock. So it does not make much difference one model hammock to the next.
