My review of the new 2QZQ Camo Epsilon UQP. I want to apologize because I cannot post pics.
Upon arrival, I immediately noticed the difference in the material, 40D vs 30D, so the new one is a bit heavier. The material has a silky feel to it and feels sturdier. I love the camo.
I set up two 11’ DL 1.1 hammocks and put my 30D UQP on one and the 40D Epsilon UQP on the other one. (hammocks only, no UQ’s) The temperature was around 70* and a bit breezy. This was perfect for checking wind blockage. I laid in the hammock with the 30D UQP first and noticed a slight coolness on my back. I did not feel much wind coming thru the UQP. I then laid in the hammock with the Epsilon UQP and noticed that it seemed to block the wind better and I did feel the coolness on my back, but not as much. I then put my 20* UQ under the hammock and put the Epsilon UQP around it. That night the temp got down to almost 30* with a slight breeze. The Epsilon UQP blocked the breeze nicely and I slept well thru the night. I did not notice any condensation in the morning, but the weather was not the sort that would have created any condensation. I will keep an eye out for condensation, and post if I experience any.
I really like this new Epsilon Camo UQP and 2QZQ did an excellent job as always. I will continue to us my 30D UQP when backpacking since it is lighter, and as I get older I don’t want to carry any more weight than I have to. I think the Camo Epsilon UQP will get more use car camping, but it is light enough to backpack. I love the camo.
Thank you 2QZQ for letting me in on this trial run, and I think the Camo Epsilon material will be very popular.
