    Another poncho liner UQ..with a bonus.

    I decided to modify my woobie for use as a DIY UQ. I added the typical paracord and cord locks and installed it on my el-cleapo hammock. This will eventually make it to the hammock I have hanging in the Suburban. I took the one I usually hang in the back yard(same as the one in the burb) and set it up in the living room and went to work. Please excuse the mess....

    I filled it with a fat bag and a couple of couch pillows to spread it out.





    And now for the bonus: I installed my poncho via liner ties as a vapor barrier/ splash shield. I set it up sort of like the Hennessy Supershelter. I put a space blanket between the liner and the hammock then I hung the poncho under all of it. I set it up outside and took a snooze in it. It got down around 50 and it was too hot. The space blanket came out and still too hot. I'm a warm sleeper so that is probably some of it. Just the liner and I was comfortable. I'll try it again this fall when the temps drop lower and see what happens. Here's a few pics of the poncho installed.





    Hope y'all enjoyed another poncho liner mod story!

    Thanks!

    I've been considering trying that with my poncho, as well. I'm glad that it worked for you, and I hope that it'll work out for me.

    Thanks for the information on it!

    I followed this thread(roughly). I completely forgot to add this in my OP. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...highlight=pluq
