    Somewhat. This one is just straight sides and has no shock cord on the sides or end.

    will be interesting to see how it is suspended, sounds like something different

    Nothing new really. It has a shock cord suspension that runs from the corners of the quilt to the hammock end knots and a drawstring closure on the end of the quilt to cinch it up. It also has 3 grosgrain loops on each side. I use the one on the right side by the footbox to keep it close up to the footbox.

    We looked at doing that, but the end result was way too big and heavy.

    Just throwing this out there because it popped into my head.

    Nest was busy showing off a new underquilt he made. He talked about it last year on the trail and I guess he got bored during his brief time off. He took a blanket like the one you find at motels. You know, the cheap blanket between the sheet and the comforter. If feels soft and spongy. Anyway, he sandwiched that between a couple of layers of nylon and claims it is doing a good job. He was using it at Trail Days and seemed to be doing fine.

    Sooooo, what about a 'pocket' of sorts for the footbox make with this material? It should weigh less than the traditional insulation and be a bit more manageable with regards to packing. The foot doesn't need to be real warm if the rest of the quilt is doing its job. Something to think about anyway.

    A vellux blanket is what you are talking about

    Link isn't working for me, but a quick search for "vellux" found the tread in question. 99.9% sure that's what it is he's using right now.
