    VIDEO: GargoyleGear Gar-Quilt and foot rest/mini-gear hammock

    Here's the low-down on my latest gear, the Gar-Quilt and the hammock foot rest/ mini-gear hammock ( I use it for a gear hammock) also a cameo appearance by the new book The Ultimate Hang. There's some info on Scums suspension system too.

    Good luck,

    Great review Red! Looks like a cool design and it's always fun to see some new stuff.

    Also, I agree about that book. I honestly bought it just to let my friends read it in hopes to converting them. But, once I opened it I realized it is a great companion book for any hammocker. Thanks for the vid.

    Thanks Fronkey. That quilt is definitely versatile, lots of options to it.

    And that book is great too, some stuff in there I'll be trying next time I'm out.
    Good luck,

    Great video and thank for showing me the next piece of gear I'm gonna order. I got my eye on that foot rest.
    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 have the 'original'? Garquilt in orange. I think it may have been the prototype. That thing is so freaking awesome. I'm glad someone else now knows the same feeling.

    I'm digging the quilt pattern and black color. I may have just picked out my Christmas present!
    Look up before you hook up!!

    Thanx LRR, I think I'm really gonna prefer the gear hammock over a RL organizer, plus it can double as what it was built for... a foot rest.
