    I'm hoping to modify mine to hold up a chunk of thermoflect blanket (basically a thick space blanket). This will make a simplistic warm weather UQ.

    I doubt it would hold an UQ in place and definitely not something as heavy as a sleeping bag without attaching it at the edges somehow.

    No, I don't think it would work too well for that. You get a bunch of sag and gaps. You'd be cold.

    Any pics? I'm having a hard time visualizing it.

    I'm interested in trying to make the uqp hold a sleeping bag too. I haven't thought about it much, but if you replaced the stock shock cord with heavier duty stuff you'd probably be almost there. You also might have to clip the sides to the sides of the hammock.

    I just got mine set up in a way that I hope I really like it.

    I put my quilt on the hammock, and brought one end of the UQP together around the gather for the hammock. I ran a small cable tie through the gossgain ribbon on that end and fastened it. I repeated it with the other side. I used the shock cord on the ends to snug them up, and tied them off. Then I snugged up the sides with the shock cord and barrel lock. I then had a loop of shock cord that hung down, and a tight UQP on the hammock. I ran the shock cord to the hammock's tie out and put it through the ring on the tie out, and just hitched it there.

    I played with it for a few minutes, and now when the hammock pulls are set out the UQP comes with it. They stay together quite well. I pulled them out straight and asym. The whole package stays together so well that I was able to stuff the whole shebang into the bishop bag that came with the hammock. It is quite stuffed,and I think a Kifaru 5 string stuff sack will be in order here. I really like this.

    Basically snug up the cord lock until it comes up to the hammock. My UQP is built large so I sometimes turn it into a sock by clipping together the edges.

    That's a great idea.
    I chatted with the 2Q ZQ folks a while back ( and aren't they the nicest people ever?) about a custom idea I had.
    Your UQP-Sock might be a way better solution.

    I might put a zip along one edge and use it like a Hennessy style cat cape. ( I wear a hat so I don't need a hood)

    Can I ask you a few questions?

    What are the dimensions of yours when laid out flat?

    What does it weigh?

    Does it make you a little warmer even when wind isn't a factor?

    What fabric did you use, breathable or not?

    Any vapour issues?

    Thanks.

    Take care.
