    Figure I would weigh in since I had a chance to use my Jarbridge River this past weekend. Friday night 10/12 temps were reported to low of 27* with frost warning. My setup was Jarbridge > ENO Doublenest > Walmart CCF Pad > Ledge ultralite +20* bag, and wore polartec long undie bottoms and UA Coldgear top, a pair of wool socks, a neck gaiter and a down puffy vest. I was warm all night and actually shed the puffy vest around 3 am.

    I probably didn't need the pad but it is what I was used to prior to getting the Jarbirdge so I kept it in the system. I am 5'10" and just the bottom of my calves were sticking out from the Jarbridge. I have a couple of the Lawson 1/8" Eva pads that I will use in a few weeks for my calves/feet and sit pad...thinking of a 24" x 36" section which will be light and foldable for a sit pad as well.

    I really didnt have too tough of a time adjusting the jarbrigde as someone said its pretty idiot-proof. I set it up once in the backyard before my hike and stuffed the UQ and the hammock in the same provided jarbridge stuff sack. Pulled it out of the stuff sack, hung it on the straps, made a few tightening tweeks on the cord locks and that was that.

    There are some pics f the setup on mytrip report here: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=61123

    Jarbridge River gets a thumbs up from me and I will probably order another for my son and his grand truck ultralight in the near future...which for him will be a full UQ (for now). Thanks Paul for a great product and great service.

    Any know if it matters which side of the Jarbridge should be out/exposed?

    I just assumed that black went in towards the bottom and the color choice was out. Correct? Or doesn't matter?

    It does not, the KAQ's are reversible. Pick a different side each night.

    Hey everybody,

    Im looking to get a 3 season Jarbidge for my Hennessey ULBP. I was wondering if anyone has used this UQ on a Hennessey. Im debating this or the Potomac model, but Im a pretty warm sleeper and I can always bring a small ccf pad for my feet. Any thoughts?

    I just got my Jarbridge in earlier this week and I love it. Thank you Mr Gibson

    I was considering this option for my son's HH Expedition, but he just told me we wants a full quilt.

    How well does the Jarbridge work with an ENO DN? I've been looking at these pretty hard for about the past week and would like to know if anyone has upgraded to the 4 season or the APEX Climashield. If so what are your opinions? I'd like to have kind of a "do it all" UQ, in warmer months I can move it to the side as necessary. Might be a tall order, but for the price I think this is the best one out there.

    I set up my ENO DN with a Jarbridge in my back yard and it works great. As others have pointed out, the Jarbridge is basically idiot proof and easily fits into place with some minimal adjusting. Now, I live in South Texas and haven't gotten to use my new Jarbridge in cold conditions, so I can't comment how it does in real conditions. But as far as set-up and fit, it works great.
