    Introducing My Newest UQ: The Smolder

    So the specs:
    -69" long
    -26" wide on the ends
    -46" wide in the middle
    -2" baffles in the middle
    -1" baffles for the first 5" at the head
    -1" baffles for the last 16" at the feet
    -9 channels running length-wise
    -Differential cut
    -13oz of 850 fill down in the body
    -.5oz of 850 fill down split between the two draft collars (which are 26" long by 7.25" in diameter
    -5' of 1/8" shock cord in each channel attached to a 2' section of 1.9mm tech line on each end with a fisherman's knot
    -Suspension shout out to Hangnout of LeighLo Quilts and Grizzly Adams
    -M50 red fabric on the inside
    -M50 black fabric for the outside
    -M50 Gray for the draft collars

    Total weight.....
    587g/20.7oz/1.294lbs

    I hope to get this down to around 10F or 15F. But it's not been that cold around here to test. I went with a full length, obviously not for the weight savings , but for the comfort factor and warmth. I keep having these weird cold spots (from gaps at the head and foot end...yes I've tried to fix it) that form using my 3/4 length Phoenix because I'm 5'7" and it's more like a 4/5 length quilt. A big thanks to Resqsarge03 for his help with setting my suspension whilst I lay in the hammock and for his opinion on whether I needed draft collars or not (I did).

    Pictures will be uploaded tonight after diner as my uploader is not working right now.

    I'm really digging the black and red.
    It looks like you're sleeping on lava.

    I walked in to the living room about a month ago and asked my wife what she thought as I held up swaths of M50. She picked the colors and I think it looks great. I tried to spice it up a bit. I'm not sure if you can see it in the pictures or not, but I have a thin outline of red along the grosgrain edge for aesthetics.

    I'm glad you like it. It will be accompanying me on my first time hanging in the snow this year *fingers crossed*.
