    Built in Under Quilt


    I asked in another thread if an integrated under quilt would work. It seams that due to the stretch of the Hammock, not such a good idea.
    So, I got to thinking, its not the under quilt I have the most problem with, its my feet get cold.
    What would the problems be with doing a small integrated under quilt just in the foot box area. It should only add about 4 oz. to the Hammock to add quilted area 24"w X 30"l and 2.5 inches of loft in the foot box area.
    I would thing there would be minimal Hammock streatch in the foot box, so it seems it should work. Then if the suspended under quilt moved a little during the night your feet would still stay warm.

    It would be a lot simpler (and more versatile) to get a top quilt with an enclosed foot box, or some down booties. There are a lot of times when something extra integrated into the hammock itself would just be in the way.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Sounds like Risk's WarmHammock idea from a few years back.

    On a related topic, does an uq for just the foot area exist? As mentioned above, a 24x30ish quilt that attaches to the main quilt and Ridgeline.
    Either for supplemental support to a full quilt or to make a 3/4 into a full.
