    I hang my sewn PLUQ with a little space under the hammock maybe 3" seems to hold heat in well that way. The PLUQ is snug to the hammock around the perimeter and whem i slid my hand in between the two you can feel the warmth. Stay safe over there Baja, got a nephew in EOD722, praying for all of you guys.

    I am still surprised at how well these bad boys work. They are so thin, yet extremely effective. I am telling you, this is the best investment I have made for my hammock, and I didn't even have to drop $150 for an already made uq. Thanks hammock forums!

    I hope to make a light weight, compressible uq some day....but for now I have been using the poncho liner uq since I've started out. To help get down in temps, I took a down throw (the ones that go on sale this time of year) and safty pinned it to the PLUQ. The down is between the hammock and PLUQ, not in the folds of the PLUQ. I also made a hammock sock. Hammock socks make a heck of a difference....as a matter of fact I couldn't believe the difference the sock made to the entire sleep system. I also had to change the suspension to my PLUQ by using triangle thingys that I made with braided mason line and knots. I still left the end suspensions on, but the added triangle thingies really help put it where it needs to be.

    I'm going on a hang this weekend and will get pictures to share.

    Those things rock, I still have a few left from when I was active Army. If you can find one the Thinsulate ones are much warmer and a bit lighter then the "standard" ones.
