    Funny thing is...I have that EXACT sleeping bag staring at me. I've already picked up my sisters thread injector and plan to Frankenstein the hell outta that bag!

    Kayt, thanks for the videos! I am inspired to make my own UQ and will borrow from your ideas.

    I was thinking - if on a chilly evening there was a gap at the head or foot maybe you could tie the side cords to the ridge line with a prussic and tighten or loosen to close the gap. Any ideas on that?

    Thumbs up

    Very very cool UQ project. I like this project the most, so far. I say that because I like how it serves me well. I need an Underquilt, none yet.
    But... My needs are for much more moderate cold temperatures. I live in Florida, and don't venture to far north very often camping. [Yet]
    Really interesting the way you took an off-the-shelf Walmart bag, ripped out the seams, and added your improvements, making it work for you, how you wanted it.
    The final UQ project looks very good. Great job Kayt!
    Also great job bringing us along with you. You are easy to listen to, and follow along. I thoroughly enjoy your DIY projects.

    I still say you should make these for those of us not so talented. [I wish]

    Keep 'em coming!
