    Video: Top Cover/UQP on BMBH UL of JacksRBetter

    Here is a quick video of what I have been working on for alittle added weather protection from rain and wind as well as adding some warmth to my setup of a JacksRBetter UL bridge hammock that was totally modified and lightened to the specks of Professor Hammock's design. Material for the top cover used was about 4.5 yds of Momentum 90 MR (tafetta) with a DWR finish and the bottom is the NEW 2Q&ZQ's UQP also made from a very light weight material that is also DWR finished and both materials used are breathable. You can either stuff the top cover inside the UQP or leave it hanging on the outside as so far in using it,,no heat loss detected at 50 degrees other nite and honestly,,it was almost too hot to be using it at that warm of a temp. At the time I did use it was with a 50 degree down TQ and a 50 degree Jarbridge and slept in shorts and tee shirt and was toast. Can't wait to try it out in a colder climate as I am sure it will do what I want it to. Hope you enjoy the video.

    I like it! That could add a lot of versatility for differing weather conditions.

    That's really neat. Got me thinking my new uqp could use some company. Is that just a big rectangle, or did to fit it to the hammock?

    Nice setup and excellent job of mind over matter... I like the versatility of your setup, but the hand stitching would have stopped me for sure.

    Would you think it would be advantageous to have a small opening above your head to let the majorority of your breathes vapor to escape? I'm wondering if these materials are breathable enough not to let moisture build up in the hammock when it gets below freezing temp.

    Its hanging off the RL of which I think has quite a bit of room above your head,,and there is a small hole about 2 inches for running the RL thru it on each end. But,,in the wind, when I made that video,,I never felt a bit of the wind while inside roasting on top that 20 degree quilt. And it got pretty warm in the few seconds I was in there as temp outside just cracked about 65 degrees from being a cool 48 last nite. But,,I didn't hang last nite, and just had installed and set up everything for the video only. You don't have to insert the sides in the UQP if you wanted as you can let them hang outside of it as well,,so there is 2 ways to play with the sides. as well as each end,,I had them tucked inside the UQP also.
