    MacEntyre,

    The package arrived. Getting ready for Insultex experiments.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Just recieved mine as well. Very interesting , very light , you could carry 5 yds of it in your pack and not know it was there weight wise. You could plus up on the layers with hardly any weight penalty. Now we just need another cold snap.
    Thanks MacEntyre

    I wonder what a double layer would do in a HH Deep Jungle?

    Folks have found that putting it inside a hammock, or between the layers of a double layer hammock, does not do well. Apparently, it compresses the IX and forfeits the insulating qualities.

    Ah well I must have misunderstood...I thought someone said it did not compress.

    Someone did... that was me!

    But I was basing that on packing it. Turns out that low density polyethylene, if that's what this is, does compress.

    How are the Insultex experiments going?
    Has anyone tried to sandwich it with an outer of Ripstop and an inner piece of Fleece
    to provide a bit of airspace....thought I'd seen a thread where someone was going at
    that to use as an underquilt.

    Well not having seen a HH Deep Jungle I am not sure how much pressure would be on the pad but it was a thought......it would be alot more convenient and tons lighter than an UQ.

    I am about done with a 2/3 UQ. I am using the following layers in order from the hammock outward.

    Ripstop, Climashield Combat, IX, Ripstop. I think it will end up around 10 oz.

    I am going to test Thursday if work does not get in the way. I figured worse case I have a nice synthetic quilt for warmer weather. Really should not have to worry much about moisture either.

    I think you may be set combined with the Climashield. I look forward to hearing how it works out
