    Yet another ENO review

    As promised here's the review of the ENO underquilt.

    It's not as thorough as I had originally planned. Mostly because oldgringo's land is AWESOME and so is he. We spent most of the overnight outing talking and walking around the property. The 10 minutes of the video is really just us chatting about the two but nonetheless please enjoy.

    My thanks defiantly go out to oldgringo. He's got a nice little spot hidden away up there and I couldn't have picked a better place to do this.

    A couple of things I missed were starting and finishing weight. Video during the hang itself, and the actual dimensions of the underquilt. It also didn't get quite as cold as I was hoping but I'll keep the forum up to date if anything changes.

    Be forgiving, we made this with a digital camera so the audio is a little out of sync. Pretend I'm speaking japanese. :-)

    Ditto. I'm on satellite, and this time of night is slooooooow.

    Let me just say, however, I never set out to be a star of the dotted screen. I wuz ambushed.

    Good hang, good company, and good grub!

    Nice video. Stuffing extras in the void space at the seam is a good idea. I might have to try that. Thanks, Arson.

    Very well done guys, Dave your a Star!

    #1. Dang I am am coming down to hang out in your back yard Dave! That opening picture is just sweet.

    #2 I like how you guys compared the to, this is great info for everyone to have, I think it is neat how the ember closes up, and for reference the New River can be strung up in a similar manor, along each edge are three GGR loops that can be secured zig zag over the top of the hammock in a similar manor if you should want to close in the quilt like the ember. This also let you close the quilt in a little tighter over the foot-box of a BB if you should need.

    Good Job Guys, I am jealous of hanging in such a cool looking area.
