    Hennessy Hyperlite backpacker underquilt

    Hi All
    After finishing my top quilt it was time to start on a underquilt.
    I stated by printing the pattern available from the hammockcamping yahoo group and transfered that to a large sheet of brown paper.
    On the last weekend I bought a plain white king size bed sheet for $2.00 at out local markets. I traced around the paper onto the sheet then cut the whole thing out.

    In these photos I have pined it to the hammock to get an idea of fit, it looks pretty good to me
    I now have to choose some shell material, I wold like to use the digi cam 1.1 oz ripstop I have received from FanaticFringer but think it might be too breathable and wind will pass straight through it.
    I plan to use climashield combat from thru-hiker as the insulation layer.

    If anyone has any tips or suggestions I'd be happy to read them.

    Looks like a small version of the KAQ. Are there instructions with this anywhere?

    If you can get a spray on Durable Waterproof Repellent (DWR) & apply it to the 1.1 ripstop, I believe that would be a noticeable improvement in wind (& water) resistance.
    If you can get the spray, you could test it on the fabric before deciding about using it for the under quilt.

    I believe that the old Yahoo group that was pre-HF is no longer in existence. Perhaps one of the Mods can chime in here....

    I was thinking the part covering the side pullouts really doesn't help keep you warm. You could make it a bit narrower and just let the pullouts come over the underquilt.
