    (Video) DIY WBBB and more...

    Video Here

    This is my first major attempt at DIY projects.
    The hammock was a convert from an HH clone to a WBBB clone.
    The quilt is made using 2 layers of 6oz. Primaloft Sport. (6' x 4') It has a drawcord channel at the foot end as well as a few ties to close in the footbox.
    Made the overcover like Fin did on his thread then added velcro, since it was there from the HH days.

    Very nice!
    So, how'd the pad work for you? Did you stay toasty?

    Pad worked out well. I ended up putting my underquilt on top of it because I really wanted some cushioning between me and the pad.

    Fantastic DIY setup. Let us know how you do tonight with pad. What are your temps gonna be?

    The temps got done to about 10 degrees. Needless to say it was cold. Inside the hammock it was definitely tolerable. The pad wraped around my shoulders so I had no cold spots. It was just really cold. No shivering or anything. And I am certainly a cold sleeper. My buddy used a 0 degree bag and he said the same.
