    At about midnight, I woke up and noticed some condensation in front of my mouth on the WBBB bug net, so I unzipped the bug net and opened up the hammock. Stayed dry all night, no condensation problems.
    A Marmot bag as UQ, or TQ?
    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.

    ...never thought about that use: Baby Orca as an alternative to a Speer Pad Extender. Your pad was inside the hammock, right?

    Pad was between layers on my double layer WBBB, and the Baby Orca was outside the hammock. I initially thought that the pad might affect the Orca's ability to make a good seal, but it seems to work out just fine.

    Good report Globetruck. I also used supplemental insulation to get into the low 30'slast night; no frost tho, so I didn't quite hit the magic number! And I agree the MMG IX is well worth the price of admission.

    Can anyone please post some directions or pictures on how to best attach this to my WBBB? I'm assuming that I need some sort of shock cord loop at the head and foot end of my UQ, but what length? What thickness of shock cord?

    Thanks!

    Dale,

    I got your email, thanks for taking care of this in a professional manner! Gotta love small companies that actually give 2 cents about customer service!
