    Everyone may as well stop asking Pan to make a quilt in muted colors, it's gonna be day-glo green forever...those guys have color vision issues, I think.

    Has anyone used a square quilt in an UnderCover without tailoring?

    I bought a Poncho Liner from Wiggy's to do some experimenting. I'm thinking of putting it in the HH Supershelter UnderCover, beneath the OCF pad, and slacking off the UnderCover. At the entrance, I will simply fold the corner into the hammock; once I am in the hammock, I'll fold it out between the UC and the hammock to cover the entrance. I'll fold the other corners where they extend above the UC.

    Hi
    I have cut out the size and shape of my quilt and would like to use thin elastic bungee type cord to hold it to the hammock. Does anyone have any photos of this cord attached to the quilt and at the hammock end? I am not sure of the best way to go from here. I want to test it out tonight before making the cover for it.
    Thanks

    shots of the end of my Potomac (the KAQ design).
    There are channels for the shock cord on all four sides of the quilt.

    Grizz...looking at this UQ...How does it attach to the hammock? I see the two long cords in the second photo...but have yet to figure out how it attaches to the hammock support.

    The long cords are actually one length, a loop, also shock cord. It goes up to a hook that is attached to the suspension line via a prussik knot. So you just grab the shock cord loop and clip it onto the hook. Adjust the tension by moving the hook+prussik knot along the suspension line.

    Griz, my KAQ (made by Patrick) also has a loop of shock cord that goes over the ridgeline. I've thought about ordering JRB's suspension kit and hybridizing the two maybe. Patrick's shockcord tunnels work really well, it really hugs the side of the hammock. The only cold spot I've found yet (and I haven't been able to really cold test it yet) was under my knees, and that seems to be a common complaint. I've thought about a piece of thin, flat nylon tape at knee level that runs over the top of the ridgeline to snug it up. Maybe use two little plastic D rings to adjust it. If you used a Black Bishop sack you could set it and forget it.

    having a cold spot under the knee makes sense, I think the shape of our body in the hammock bottom naturally creates an air gap there.

    Now that you mention it, my Potomac may have been sent with shock cord I could use over the ridgeline. Last time I used it in a HH was June, and I forget these details. Indeed last weekend I took the family camping, my wife and youngest to sleep in a tent. Grabbed a tent I bought new in August 2006 for a family trip then, I've probably pitched it four times. Got to the campsite in the dark, and commenced to set up the tent with headlamps. 'xcepting I couldn't remember which poles went where, and so on...got it sorted out in the end but was sweating it for sure.
