    How to fix a Washington 3 to HH Explorer?

    Hello all,

    I just received my Washington 3 underquilt. Yeehaw! That is one nicely made piece of kit!

    My question is how to fix it to the hammock properly. The center line running out with the mini biner is obvious. The side pull adjusters with line locks not so much. The photos on the site do show them running up towards the gathered end, but are not too precise i how they are fitted.

    I hope to get a weekend in next weekend. Some car camping (actually motorcycle) in down at Larabee State Park near Bellingham, WA. Looking at overnight temps in the high 30's low 40's. I would like to have the fitting sorted out in my head first. Are there any extras I should pick up to make fitting easier?

    Thanks in advance!

    Got it sorted. I found the suspension lines (they were buried in other stuff). Look forward to trying this out this weekend.

    Ha! I was just about to respond with: is there no suspension? That would be tough without one! My MW4 is the Cat's Meow, though I use it mostly with my JRB BH, which is the closest thing I have seen to a custom fit. However, I have used it quite successfully with a WBBB and some other hammocks. Definitely takes a bit more initial fiddling around, especially on the foot end, but quite doable. Just make sure it is snug against your back. I think you will love it. What is it rated for, ~15-20F?
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Well, I used it this weekend. The UQ fit the Explorer like a glove, and oh was it toasty warm. The weather was foul Thursday night, with temps down to about 5, wind, and a hella lot of rain. With the Washington 3, my 0 deg C sleeping bag draped over me like a quilt, and my Bivvy Wear (oh, I wish they were still in business, they made such awesome clothing) jacket I was snug as a bug in a rug.

    Thanks JacksRBetter for a great product. I can foresee years of use out of this UQ.

    Oxblood,

    Glad that you found the suspension set....And, more importantly that you enjoyed a warm, comfortable, hassle free hanging in that big HH Explorer.

    You are welcome.

    Pan,

    Many thanks. I cannot speak highly enough about your product. Just at a glance you can tell it is well made, and it certainly worked very well. It was as if the UQ was made to order for the Explorer.

    If any one ever has a question about how well the Washington works, please feel free to refer them to me for a testimonial.

    Kai
