    Using a "Traditional" Underquilt with a Bridge Hammock

    If you either already own a "traditional" non-bridge specific underquilt and a bridge hammock OR own a gathered end hammock and a bridge hammock and need an underquilt that will work for both OR are looking for a way to purchase or make an underquilt that works for multiple hammock types to save some cash, it is useful to have a method of attaching a non-bridge specific underquilt to a bridge hammock.

    Below is a quick video I whipped up to show what I've used for a year or so to keep my non-bridge "traditional" UQs snug and toasty on my Warbonnet Ridge Runner bridge hammock. There's no modifications or alterations to the UQ to make it work with a bridge so you can swap hammocks easily or not permanently alter the UQ for future use/sale.

    I just pull the suspension tight and then loop it up over the ends of my triangle. I have a 3/4 length from UGQ.
