    It would be helpful to have a bit more info on your DIY UQ, such as size, attachment arrangement, etc. Photos would also help.

    "BUMP. I really need help on this"

    I've been seeing this sort of thing after only a half day on the forum for several threads. Have a little patients! Not all of us spend 24 hours a day on Hammock Forums! Let at least a day or two before you demand responses. It would also help if you tried using fewer abbreviations in your questions. I don't know what your asking so can't really answer your questions and I bet there are quite a few other people who have the same problem.

    I'm sorry you have been seeing people bump after only a short time. The only reason I did is because I know how quickly a thread can get buried. I do have patients / also I do not spend 24hr (hours) on the forum either. As for the abbreviations their is a GLOSSERY for everyone to read so they understand the lingo of the forum. I figured someone that has been a member since 2007 would know most of them. I'm sorry if this seems a little rude but I feel your reply was rude aswell

    Would you be ok with not using the tie-outs? Cuz if so then I would imagine you could set it up the same way that you would with most other hammocks. I have yet to make my own UQ so my knowledge is limited but would be willing to brainstorm abit and see what we could figure out.

    As for the slug. I would recommend starting with 40" of fabric. Drape it over the ridge line and pin it up in a tube until you are satisfied with its circumference. You can just toss all the contents that you plan to leave inside the slug, laying in the hammock and take a piece of cordage and wrap in a spiral pattern from end to end to hold the hammock bunched up against the ridge line while you pin up the slug. If you plan on leaving your TQ and UQ inside the slug then I would make one end of the slug slightly larger than the other for ease of use. Don't forget to add few inches to each end for expansion and end channels. I already made that mistake once with my hammock sock.

    Anyways, hope everything works out ok..Can't wait to see the finished product.

    my thoughts on the UQ are to add little loops of shock cords at the same points as the tie outs are, just to keep it in place so that it wont shift.. I think using an UQ with the SS is going to be tricky anywho

    I got an answer on the slug and I think I know what i'm going to do

    I have been thinking the same thing. I must have opened the zipper a dozen times during the night (at Smoked Butt) to pull up my IXUQ to cover my shoulder.

    I agree with what you said about using an UQ with the SS. Probably not the most effective combination. I bought the SS with my Hennessy two months ago and have yet to use it overnight. Having too much fun sewing UQs and stuff. Probably need to sell the SS.
