    I'll try and find your post on making your double bridge. How wide of a pad were you using under your legs?
    I am using a 20" wide pad. The last time out I used a cut down Zrest for the leg area. When I tested in single digits I used a short ridgerest. Both layers on my bridge are used for support. I just sewed the long edges together and left both ends open.

    Thumbs up

    Great stuff !

    I was thinking of making down pillows to stuff down the pockets
    of my Clark NA.

    But im skipping that after i read this thread.

    I would love to do it myself, but itīs a hassel to get all the materiel here
    in Sweden

    So i have to import:
    For instance i bought 6 1" cinch buckle from On Rope 1,
    ended up costing 7$ each

    So im letting thepreacherswife do this for me

    I think, im gonna use T-bars with elastics sawn to UQ instead of shock cord.
    Clark Na has 3 or 4 tabs on each side.
    I recon that would do the job of snugging it up against the hammock.

    Thankīs for a very inspiring job !

    I would consider a higher attaching point. It is easier to position the 1/2 UQ and get it to seal against the hammock. I actually pull one side a little above the edge of the hammock to cover my shoulder when I lay asym in the clark.

    I ended up making a second 1/2 UQ a little bigger for the Clark after using this one a couple nights. The link about that one is below

    So do you have problems with your legs getting cold? That looks like a really cool idea except I know nothing about sewing. I have an Exped 7 Deluxe I plan to use for cold weather but that would weigh a hell of a lot less. Would be a nice option to add to the bag of tricks.

    I use a short leg size pad that I carried already for the legs. Since the pad is only under the legs it is easy to control. This combo works well for me.
