    What is the longest 2/3 or 3/4 UQ?

    I have a lot of research into the matter and as of now the longest ones i can find are around 52 to 54 inches. As i am tall i want a 3/4 that's a little longer to compensate. Anybody know UQ that are a bit longer WITHOUT BEING FULL LENGTH. Thanks

    IMHO I would contact Adam aka stormcrow from hammock gear and have him customize you a 3/4 length UQ. Ive had him change around the specs of a phoenix for me and he does some awesome custom work.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    The kaq jarbridge is 58 in long and I'm 6'3" and it covers from my shoulders down to the halfway point of my calf. Use it with a DIY gathered end and it works great. Just my 2 cents worth

    Keep this in mind too. A quilt that only covers to your thighs and a quilt that covers to your ankles makes little difference if your a back sleeper in 3 season hanging. It's not your thighs or calfs that need the length. It's head torso butt and feet.

    I've had Adam/HG make a custom length UQ for me as well. Give him a call and talk it over.
