If I was going to go to the trouble of adding draft tubes, I think I would just make a down UQ
    ...if sag is what you think may have been the issue, then just add some grosgrain ribbon to each side of the center with shock cord tied to it, and a mitten hook on the free end. Shug has a video some where on this. Then once your in your hammock and slide your UQ to where you want it, reach down and then attach your shockcord to your ridgeline. It pulls up and keeps it there. Hope that made since. It's an easy fix.

    By the way, draft tubes will be easy for you to do. K.I.S.S approach to them.

    ^^ I foresee cold butt in your future!! I don't think the ends of the PL aren't going to snug up real well to the hammock, letting cold air in. Might want to run some shock cord through the short end and cinch it up a bit.

    I made one of these last week and it gave me shoulder squeeze something fierce and my butt was cold. I'd have to use my Wide Thermo-Rest for sure, and if I'm going to have to bring that along I'd probably just leave the poncho in the truck.

    I bet it would be great for the summer (for me) though. Thanks for taking the time and those instructions you put together were amazing!

    I just made mine in 30 minutes while chatting with my wife. I'll test it out today. Thanks for the pictures and advice.

    Made mine today and tried it out in the woods behind my house. After two years of enjoying cold weather camping with my CCF pad setup in an SPE, I can see this is going to be so much more comfortable. No battling the pad on a diagonal lay. Ordered some Insultex to put between the layers. I can't recommend this enough to those who haven't tried it yet.

    I jerry-rigged one of these back in November before I found your instructions. Using an MSS GoreTex bivy and black cold weather bag, an uninsulated air pad, my PLUQ, and wearing a bunch of fleece, I made it through 14F. I had to put some toe warmers in my slippers to keep my feet from getting too cold. Thanks for showing me what I needed to do improve my setup.

    I bought a curtain at walmart that was just the right size and sewed already so I just had to run some shock cord through it. I used it as a wind break under the poncho UQ. It works great! I've tested it to 32 degrees and was quite warm. I'll be using it on the 17th to see if it can go much lower.
