    Yes thru hiker is where I got mine and it has been great only a low in the 20 but toasty warm. Winter is over for Texas have to wait a couple seasons to truly test next winter. Time to make some singles and some lightweight single layer hammocks.

    I've always bought it from thuhiker. Outdoor wilderness fabrics has it as well in some different weights.

    Got mine from Thru Hiker. Have had my single-layer 5 oz Apex UQ down to about 25 and was comfortable. Haven't had a chance to try it when its been cold with my 5 oz Apex TQ...

    Anyone try to 6oz CS APEX from outdoor wilderness fabrics?? They list it this way on their site

    CS 6.0 APEX 60"
    6.0 oz 1-2" loft White
    When the wife asks, I simply say "Shug made me do it".

    I haven't used their 6.0 APEX, but their 4.0 APEX is easy to work with. I made a pair of modular quilts for my brother-in-law's birthday that he and his wife could combine to make a "couple's quilt" when they went camping. It was easy as all get-out to make.

    How practical would it be to make a 3/4 UQ with CS 2.5 for mild weather. A full length UQ with CS 5.0 for nights in the 20-30s Then on real cold,teens use both. Perhaps have the 3/4 slip inbetween the full length and the hammock, using ties or snaps to keep in position?

    probably wouldn't be all that hard at all. I want to make a summer cs 3/4 quilt to layer inside my down to add some warmth. adding 6 snaps may work well if its not to heavy for the suspension.

    Not real hard at all. However, I'd go about it the other way 'round, with the full-length inside of the 3/4. Sealing up the ends of a full-length is more difficult than a 3/4 due to the curvature of the hammock (and the narrowness of your feet and head versus your shoulders and knees). It would be easier to design the 3/4 to grip the outside of the full-length than the other way 'round.

    That's actually what I'm in the middle of doing with my DIY system, but I haven't gotten past the first layer...
