    My IX UQ

    My Insultex came from DIY Gear supply Saturday so I thought I would get my underquilt done. Using sclittlefield's directions it was easy to complete. The only downside was my local wally world was out of black grossgrain and I was impatient so I used the white that they had.

    Here are some Pics.

    Completed Quilt


    My Oldest son with the quilt on his hammock for fit.




    Finally a stuff sack with the quilt compared to a Nalgene for size.


    I may add scum's HorseCollar Draft Tubes after I can test it outside. Hopefully that will come in the next week or so.

    Thanks,
    Chris

    I am not a die hard winter camper. I am hoping for freezing maybe lower. It is 3 layer. I took a nap today using it in the house with a fleece blanket on top. I woke up too warm. Gonna go hiking tomorrow and may try a nap in the woods with it.
