    There is always the possibility for a mix up...but I doubt that it happened. I rarely make the black silnylon UQP. I always double check to make sure the customer wants the sil when they order.
    P.S. I just tried calling you...the missed call is me...call if you want.
    Thanks, that sounds right Donna. Amazing service right there!! Much appreciated!

    Thanks to your review, I have just ordered a UQ Protector that is made of breathable ripstop. I'm pretty excited right now.

    Mine is expected midweek. Donna kept me update throughout and answered all my questions. She is a prime reason why cottage vendors are the best.

    I have been very pleased with my UQP.
    I got the Bridge UQP for $38 - the extra $3 gets you 4 pairs of bridge tie outs that makes it easy to close up the top and bottom of the UQP so it is almost a pod/sock on your gathered end hammock. I just tie a bow with a string to these tie outs to close it up UQP. The center of the UQP can be closed with the shock cord. Nice and easy. I'll try to post some pictures the next time I have it out.
    Enjoying the simple things in life.

    Using mine very day.

    Small, light, handy piece of kit.
    I have the 2QZQ Ripstop now for a couple of months. Excellent for wind protectection. I use with a WBBB and a JRB 3/4 length Graylock 3. When extra cold/windy, can stuff space blanket and/or down jacket between UQP and hammock at foot end. I'm also trying out the idea of just cramming the whole set up into a stuff sack without taking it apart. In other words, hammock, UQ, and UQP sort of rolled up and stuffed into sack all at once. Then just pulling the whole thing out at once and hooking up the supports, etc. So far, it seems to work pretty well, and if I wind up brushing the ground when setting up or taking down, the UQP protects the contents. Still a little tricky not getting things twisted and tangled, but rolling the whole thing up seems to be working, then just stuff or unstuff it.

    I agree with these reviews. I got my UQP just over a week ago in time for a quick weekend backpacking trip. A pretty good storm hit in the middle of the night, but I slept peacefully knowing that my underquilt would stay dry. Great piece of gear.

    Has there been any word on how the multicam prototypes are working out?
