    Review - 2QZQ Camo Epsilon UQP

    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 UQs) 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 dont 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.

    I'll add my review as well.

    Here’s my review of the new 2QZQ Camo Epsilon UQP.

    As this was my very first UQP, I did not have anything to compare this to – so here’s my initial reaction:

    It was very well made and large enough to easily cover my WBBB end to end. The quality was perfect and I loved the pattern of the material. Although I set it up in the back yard to ensure it was adjusted correctly, I was finally able to test it “in the field” this past weekend.

    I took it on a two night loop and used it both nights. It was used on my WBBB with a 20 degree UQ hung loosely. The first night the low was 41, a small amount of early morning drizzle, and light wind. The second night a low of 42, heavy rain and lots of wind (10 mph gust). Although I had my tarp set approx 4” off the ground, with the wind and rain, I had lots of rain splatter on everything except my now protected UQ. I was VERY thankful for the UQP this night to keep my UQ clean and dry!

    When the wind would blow especially hard, I could feel the heat loss from the top quit, but nothing from the under quilt. I was warm and had a dry UQ without any condensation issues at all.

    I really like this item and it will go on all trips with me where it could be beneficial. Yes, it weighs about 9 oz, but it’s worth it to be warm and dry. A huge “Thank You” goes out to 2QZQ for allowing me to test this item. If you are undecided about this item – just buy it – you won’t regret it. I see this being a very popular item.

    Looks great!! I am going to have to pick one up when they are available. I was nearly heart broken when I opened the thread not too long after the last spots were claimed.
