    I sure wish I could get all the other IX UQs out of here that fast! Hang in there, everybody! I'm getting it done!

    2Q & ZQ make the 2QZQ UQ Protector, which is a silnylon UC, or weathershield. Is that what you are referring to?

    What I'm thinking of making is a breathable, lightweight, nylon slip cover for an IX UQ.

    what i'm using at the moment is my hammocksock provided by Unsponsored...it protects from splatter, adds another layer, and is my bugnet until providence provides a 1/3 bugnet or I get off the can and get an injector...

    Just wondering if I'm moving up that List yet. I got a new hammock and I'm itching to add the IX to it and see how she fits.

    I have one of the IX MAHHA UQs. I am not sure if I should place this between the two layers of the switchback, or place it underneath, like a true UQ? Thanks for your input.

    It won't work well in between the layers, because it will be compressed. Hang it tight around the edges and loose underneath. It should only touch the hammock around the edges, along the black binding of the UQ.

    separating layers

    It would increase labour but I think performance would improve by using more narrower pleats rather than fewer wider ones (e.g., three 1/8" pleats spread over the space between two of the 3/8" pleats).

    Alternatively, the layers could be separated with a replaceable air bladder (plastic bag), a little down, found materials (dry leaves/grass), by direct inflation (assuming airtight material and construction), &c.

    See new thread...
