    TQ/Bag Forum??

    I don't know if it is just that I haven't found it in the different forums, but I was wondering why there isn't a TQ/Sleeping Bag forum under the Hammock Camping section. Has there ever been any discussion of adding one?

    I don't remember it really ever coming up before. I think the TQ discussions have always just gotten put in with either General or the UQ topics, if not in the individual manufacturers forums.

    If everyone thinks there ought to be one, I'll be happy to add it.

    Can you list 15 or 20 threads that deserve to be in it?
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Thanks for the consideration. I'll hunt around on the forums and try to come up with a list. If others happen to come across any, feel free to add them to the post to save time. This can include other posts that have been put in other forums, such as manufacturer forums as well, since the assumption could be that they were put there simply because there was previously no repository specifically for TQ-related threads.

    AS, I don't suppose it matter if there's been 20 threads or not. You gotcher hammocks, yer underquilts, yer tarps, and by golly, yer top quilts. In the greater scheme of things, air moves (quilts), moves underneath you (underquilts) and will move above you.

    Don't tell me an Top Quilt doesn't deserve it own forum. Lay in a hammock on a winter's night, and say that!

    That's what I was thinking. A TQ or sleeping bag is an essential piece of the hammock system. Many on here don't use pads, socks or bug nets which all have their own forums, however I'd be willing to bet 99.9999% use some form of top layer.

    Most UQ also function extremly well as TQ.... In fact, all JRB Family of Standard Size quilts (Nests, No Snivellers, Hudson Rivers, Old Rag Mtns, Shenandoahs, Stealths) are specifically designed to go both ways on any hammock...

    Extra forums result in compartmented; info which requires duplicate postings, results in missed related info.... Given the propensity for thread ramble around here it is almost a mute point to seek too much compartmentalization

    Seems like a systematic tagging review... one where each post had its own tags as well as the thread tags would enable far more efficient searching...

    Sorry, you're wrong. Most Jacks R Better are better quilts are designed to work as topquilts and underquilts.


    I vote for a topquilt forum to be added.
