    I will kick in again, great quilt....I really like it for the rainy winters here, don't worry about it as much as a down quilt....and it is plenty warm and packs fine for me.

    ===> Not a problem! Come hike and hang up here! I just ordered a Camo Superfly from Brandon in anticipation of the Fall / Winter possible hangs. Was going to order the Mamajamba, but am sure I would lose the detachable doors! LOL! The Superfly will fit the bill with my WBBB 1.1 Dbl just fine!

    I will be heading SOMEWHERE to hang over the 18th - 22nd. Am talking with anothe hanger here about the possibility or an AT section in Western Mass that weekend.

    Yes me to i would like to know how it fits on a asym hennessy? My GT ul should be ok. I have a original Speer PP (synth) and i figure that with a new river under the hammock and the PP over the new river it will be nice a toasty.

    Just had this UQ out for four nights in the woods here in NE, and it was awesome still! Temps dipped a little into the 40s at night in the woods, and I was toasty all night - no problems at all! Easy, easy, to set-up, and the included side loops allowed me to connect a piece of paracord over the end so the BlackBird footbox would stay inside the UQ.

    Some pics from last weekend:

    DSCF0058.jpg <== Without the tarp, so you can see the UQ. Notice the paracord loop for the footbox. Also notice on the ground the Cold Steel Trail Hawk Tomahawk head. I just carry that, and make whatever length/style handles I need in the bush. VERY hand to have as a wood-processor, draw knife, hammer, etc.

    DSCF0062.jpg <== The matching camo hammock straps are also from AHE! The shock cord tie-outs are from MountainFitter here. No problems to-date; they are self-tensioning in wind and rain, and have never sipped, pulled up a stake, or anything else. The orange cord locks are also from Paul at AHE. Easy to see.

    DSCF0068.jpg <=== Notice the orange paracord on the footbox end.

    DSCF0069.jpg <==The end cinched-up

    DSCF0051.jpg <== I could have stayed here forever!

    Nice, I'm loving mine too, but I've only been out too nights in it. I'm looking to fix that soon enough.

    I have 2 Potomac UQs that I use on my WBBB: A 30* 3 season and a winter version with extra Climashield. I like that this model is modified for the diagonal sleeper and fits the foot box and shoulder area on both the HH and BB perfectly.

    I also have a DIY KAQ that I made with the same pattern as the Potomac in which I used Thinsulate. I use this as my summer UQ. It will take me down to 40*. It weighs in at about 22 oz.
