    KAQ Any good?

    I want to get an underquilt after wrestling with a pad in my hammock. I was looking at the KAQ and understand that they are for Hennesseys which is good as I have an Exp Deluxe Zip. Just wanted to see what all you other hangers thoughts are on KAQ for a Hennesy. I was thinking about getting the Potomac. I appreciate any advice you can give me. THanks everyone.

    I can't personally speak to the fit on a Hennessy, but I can vouch for the build quality of Paul's quilts. I have the Jarbridge and love it. Paul is very easy to deal with.

    I have a Potomac and it fits like a glove on my explorer ul and my girlfriends expendition. I really like the fact that the underquilt fits around the tieouts so it doesn't slide from underneath me. It also fits on Eno singlenest and doublenest and wbbb. Its nice to know that even through its designed for hennessys it works fine on other hammocks.

    I have a Jarbridge and use it with my Hennessy, it's awesome! Nice and cozy and warm. Paul will have it shipped out to you almost before you hit the send button

    I second the jarbridge. Not sure about the fit on a henessey, but I imagine it should fit just fine. Send them a pm or email and I'm sure they could recommend the best fit. Either way can't go wrong with Arrowhead, especially if down is out of your budget. Love mine!

    I don't own it but saw one at a group hang. One word came to mind when I inspected it: professional. The owner loved it and was toasty warm in their Hennessy. I do remember it was a Hennessy but don't recall the specific model.

    KAQ New River here on a Warbonnet, great quilt. His tarps are top notch as well.

    His stuff is better than advertised, it seems most of our cottage vendors deliver more than is promised, which is opposite of what I've found with mainline industry. To put it another way, if our cottage folks were fast food outlets, their sandwich would look just like the picture on the menu, and would taste better than we expected, so it is with their products, i use his new river and his top quilt, excellent, jim
