Check it by breathing through the fabric.
It is normally for it to be wet from condensation, but pooling water sounds like waterproof material.
Any condensation that is in a UQP is condensation that probably could have collected in the down of your underquilt if you didn't have the UQP.
I suspect you can reduce condensation in the UQP by leaving just enough gap on one end or side to allow for some air flow, at the cost of warmth of course.
A great many people think they are thinking when they are merely rearranging their prejudices.

Hi Mark, What would you guess the humidity was that night?
If it was 95-100% there really would be no place for your perspiration to go.
I could see in some situations perspiration and environmental condensation collecting on everything.
I've been looking at these for too long. It's time to jump on the bandwagon!
Love this forum! Have questions about anything ever in the history of hammock hanging (or the history of the world, for that matter)? Just start reading and you're bound to find lots of sound advice.
Ordered my UQP today. Thinking about spring/fall use...any thoughts on how a breathable UQP might work with a PLUQ?
Add a bit of warmth like with any other UQP?
What about running a space blanket directly under the quilt, on top of a PLUQ, and then the UQP?
I have used my UQP once and it performed admirably. I had it along with my 20* set of top and bottom quilts from hammock gear. Temps got into the teens and then windchill on top. Im looking to hopefully try it this weekend again as we are in for some close to freezing temperatures and rain. So far so good.
