    perrito,
    I will be going with Scott's design. It will be 60" long. I think you are right 25 degrees might be asking too much. I have so much hair that bigfoot takes pictures of me! So living with a God given top quilt might help me. I will post pictures. Thanks again everone!

    This is all my DIY goodies! My hammock stand, hammock 1.9 oz material and 11ft long. I've just completed my IXUQ last week. 3 layers of IX and top and bottom has 1.1 oz ripstop. This thing keeps me really warm. It's been around 50 degree's at night. Have had no issues of staying warm so far. I will keep you posted when it gets cooler out and let you know what the lowest temp it will keep me comfy.

    Thanks!

    Nice to know I'm not the only one with an all natural top quilt...

    Hey guys, sorry we ran out. The new shipment is on a truck headed to Maine as I write this. Should be here Mon. or Tue. (10/15-16/12).

    Enjoy all your gear projects!

    That's good news! We used pads in our double-layer hammocks for our Katy Trail (Missouri) bike ride last week, and got hit with a storm that dropped temperatures more than predicted. This is my next project...

    Hi guys. First, thanks to Scott for the plans and materials!

    I wanted to ask those of you who have had trouble staying warm with the IX tarp. I was out this weekend and the temperatures were in the mid-high 40s, but mu but and back were fairly cold (to the point that I had to put my thermarest seating pad under me). My IX UQ is the usual 3 layer, and I also have an extra 2 layer (using the same idea) add on, that is narrower, just to sit under me. I tried many combinations, but I kept getting cold.
    So, what would you guys suggest I try to make it "fit" better, or insulate better? Or should I just go ahead and make a down UQ?

    Thanks!
