    Field Tested 2QZQ UQP

    Hi Donna and Tim,

    I just wanted to let you know that I field tested the UQP that I purchased a month or so ago last week-end. The event was the NEHHA Nor'Easter Winter Hang.

    While we had all hoped for snow and cold temps, we were served up Temps in the mid-forties and constant rain from Friday night through about 10pm Saturday night.

    When I say rain, I mean RAIN. Just when you thought that it couldn't rain any harder, it did.

    When I set up my hooch on Friday afternoon, I put my UQP on, over my 0* Incubator, which was beneath my Hennessy Safari Deluxe. (All covered by my Warbonnet SuperFly.) The rains started sometime Friday night, intermittently and then really came down Saturday morning and day.

    I am pleased to report that, with the exception of a little condensation, (on all of my stuff) everything was perfect. The ground was frozen and the temps rose, creating an incredibly Humid Air Field around us. Fog, etc.....

    I wanted to thank you very much for the quality of your product(s) and let you know how well it performed.

    Keep up the great work. I look forward to ordering some new "stuff" in the near future.

    All the best !

    Must have been that ice fog night - I was out too and it has been the only night I ever got condensation. Here it went from 41F and heavy fog to 31F and ice fog - everything froze up.
    Thanks for the UQP test results - was that the Sil-Nylon or regular 1.1? I'm about ready to order one and I keep flip flopping between the two (I know most go with 1.1 for condensation reasons but I'll be using it above 40F). Thanks.
    Enjoying the simple things in life.

    Old Pappy,

    I purchased the Rip Stop Breathable in Olive Green.

    It does breath and any moisture/condensation that might find its way to the UQP, quickly evaporates with a little circulation.

    If you are undecided as to which you should get, ie., the ripstop or sil, call or email Tim or Donna. They are very, very helpful and will provide you with a great recommendation.

    Happy hanging and all the best !

    Thanks for the review and comments on this. I made the choice to pull the trigger on purchasing exactly what you got yesterday. Ordered the ripstop in olive brown.

    I've been out in rain, but not since I've switched to down UQ/TQ. Nice to hear how well this worked for you...reassures me that I made a good choice!

    Owl, I can assure you that you made a great choice. In the NEHHA Trip Report Thread, you can read comments from all of our fellow hangers as to how much rain we got and despite the rain, the UQ kept my kit dry and warm.

    I think you are going to be very pleased. Let me know after you've had a chance to field test it on your own.

    All the best !
