    anyone ever try flipping the breathable UQP 'upside-down' - to be used as a top cover?

    just mentally 'becking' over here at work.. wondering if there's data on it. gonna try when i get home tonite. not sure i'd every use it, more curiosity/boredom than anything.

    LOVE MY UQP~!
    Perhaps add some velcro or omin-tape like Dutch did in this thread for the WBBB. Great idea on the dual purpose rip!

    I realize this thread has some rust on it but I thought I would freshen it up a bit. I am wondering if the protector adds any R value? IOW will it add a few degrees to the UQ?

    Yep it def adds some R value to the UQ I would approximate it adds 5-10 degrees. I have one and its a great piece of gear.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    I feel it extends my temp range as well, by blocking wind, plus it helps support the UQ keeping it up against your bottom.

    May your mileage in the backcountry exceed your post count.

    I concur......holds some heat and keeps the breeze from robbing UQ warmth.

    plus one 0n all above and I've found it works well in shoulder seasons or summer when cooler but no real need for an uq, just using it against hammock, works well, at least for me.

    I have an UQ Protector from 2QZQ....I think it provides an increased "R" value, and keeps the splash-up off the UQ. Worth it.

    I agree with a caviat. If you put it up too tight it will compress your uq, and you will have a big, noticeable, irritating cold spot. It took me about three nights to figure this out.

    Also, when you are in high humidity/misting conditions, and your quilt gets damp, a Hot Hands hand warmer tossed into the UQP will radiate heat up through the UQ, drying it out while the hammock is strung up. I was hunting out of a base camp and tried this and was very happy with the results.
