    Thanks, the photos are actually fairly accurate on how they look, at least in my basement.

I really like the coyote and should have gotten that in my DIY kits instead of the multicam. I lke the quilts from AHE, I have used my New River UQ on a Clark, Eno Dn and now a Blackbird as well. I hope you enjoy them as much I have enjoyed mine.
    Yeah I was thinking digi cam but I`m glad I went this route.

    They do fit really nice. Almost like they were meant for a hammock

    Looks great.
    Now you hit on the real reason I posted pics , professional assessment and advice, thanks. The quilts look great, thanks for excellent product.

    What is this fatigue thing you speak of?

    Them some nice quilts, Paule sure does some fine work, enjoy them and ill be looking forward to a gear review.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Just thought I would post up a quick mini review. I set the hammocks up on the back deck last night , New River and the Owyhee for the Blackbird. For the ENO, the Lost River and a woobie (poncho liner).
    Setup was easy and fast , I set the end channels alot looser as per Pauls advice which seemed to be just the thing. I wore just a pair of shorts and a t-shirt, my daughter wore her favorite flannel "jammies".
    I would guess outside temp dropped to around 50 F, I wouldn`t know though as I was nice and comfy and asleep. No complaints on my daughters end either she slept the whole night through and even pushed her normal wake up time of 0630 back until around 0800.
    So I am pretty happy with the purchase. My favorite things so far are ease of setup , it is way easier to hang the UQ than it is to slide the pad in the pocket. Second condensation problems would seem to be a thing of the past.

    From left to right, Lost River, New River, Owyhee . They will stuff down further than you see. I can squeeze them down to about half of what you see here. Somebody else would have to chime in on whether or not it is OK to compress the insulation that much .

    Now. I know what to get my wife for her birthday.

    I'm hoping Paul weighs in on that. I have the New River (woodland camo version) and I know it will compress a lot smaller than the supplied stuff sack's size. But I'm worried doing so may degrade the insulation. I don't have any real need to pack it down much smaller, but I do have some compression sacks and saving space in the pack is a good thing....

    Happy napping,
