    I have had similar experience to MacEntyre. I have two layers and with a pad have been down to 11 degrees and warm. I think this stuff (IX) really shines as an UQ.
    Revolution is about the need to re-evolve political, economic and social justice and power back into the hands of the people, preferably through legislation and policies that make human sense. That's what revolution is about. Revolution is not about shootouts.

    Thanks to Sclittlefield... I finally used my IX I bought some time ago...

    Made my UQ to specs with one difference: I cut the shell wider and instead of binding the edges with GG, I wrapped the 1.1 ripstop over the top edge and sewed through, using the ripstop as end and side channels.

    The only problem I have is that as I shift about, the quilt scrunches up lengthwise, and shortens up a bit, lowering away from the hammock in the process. A few minutes later, my butt gets cold... I like the fact that there is shock cord along the sides, as it makes a very good seal. I might just lock the shock cord in the side channels with a few tight stitches and see how that works.

    I have a real long hammock (11') so I approximated a triangle thingie with a 6' length of cord, and use cordlocks as toggles to hold up the south-end of the UQ. It is definitely warm on my back, but I struggle with getting it adjusted to be warm on my butt. (I have the same issue with my KAQ when it gets on the colder side outside... I'm wondering if I have it Too tight...)

    So now I have 3 quilts: KAQ lost river, PLUQ, and a 3-layer IX... I figure I could nest the IX and the KAQ for colder temps. These now give me the option to camp with both my children: my daughter (Bookworm-12) and son (Projects Force at at Distance - 9) though he prefers a different name...

    Seeing as this stuff needs a small gap in between layers to work effectively, do you think that mesh sewn in between the IX layers would make it more effective? I know it would be a little heavier but it's just a thought.

    ChrisH, a differential cut weighs nothing. Just make each layer bigger by an inch all the way around.

    What MacEntyre is saying is that the differential cut gives you the air gap you are referring to with no weight penalty: no reason to add anything to get the gap.

    Well, if that's the case, glad I could help! Okay, enough cat herding...

    Right, ok. I don't have a hammock yet (i'm in research mode) but when I do buy or make one I will be giving this a try. Thanks

    I don't think the shipping is correct on the web site. Call Tree to Tree and ask!
