    pics of black phoenix UQ

    Anyone have pics of a black phoenix 3/4 UQ? I saw the ones on the website but I want to see a few more. Finally settled on the quilt and just need to pick a color now.

    Here is the black, green and blue burrows just so you can see the colors. The inside of the black is silver you can kinda see it.



    Here is a picture of my winter Phoenix in black.



    edit: ps. I have some more pics of Hammock Gear quilts in my gallery if you would like to see more I just dident post every single one. Enjoy the new quilt when you get it.

    great choice UQ. My Phoenixes keep me nice and toasty all year round

    Thanks for posting the pics. They sure look nice. I ordered mine green with silver on the bottom. No real reason other than I thought it might look cool but seeing they way your black looks, I may change my mind.

    I thought seeing pictures would help but now I really don't know. I was gonna go with green since it matches my camo hammock, but that black looks really slick. I can see why you have each color!

    I just pulled the trigger on a black 3-season phoenix....partly as result of this review!

    I think there is something about it that will just look awesome under a coyote blackbird!

    Many warm nights to come no matter what color you choose!

    Cheers

    Makes my day to hear one of the videos encouraged a sale (even if only partially) - but aside from the look, size, and weight (all I cover in a preview) it's an incredibly well crafted piece of kit, and has been performing flawlessly since I started field testing it.

    Nice! I don't think you'll be dissapointed, that's one sharp looking quilt!

    Haha! Okay, maybe it was mostly because of this review! You shot a really good vid with alot of good views of the phoenix which I had not seen in any videos up to this point, helped sway me!

    Thanks for your folks' help, the forum is an invaluable resource, especially way north where we don't get to see this gear first hand before we buy it.

    Cheers!
