    Underquilt for XLC

    Does anyone know if there are any issues with standard underquilts fitting on the XLC with it being 11 instead of 10?

    Assuming my incubator will still fit no problem, Im ordering up an XLC tonight

    think you are supposed to add a bungee loop of about 12" to a standard (10' hammock) UQ suspension. Worked for me - using a WL full length UQ. Anyone else got better info??

    It can even be regular cord. Will work too.

    Hey Shug, how hard is it to add on? If i put an S-biner on each end of the suspension and add a little bit of rope to hang over the knots of the hammock is that about the best way to do it?

    Also, thanks for the quick reply! I showed a few friends some of your videos last night!

    Underquilt for XLC

    I lacks-headed a 6-8 inch loop of amsteel on each end of my XLC for my 2 incubators. Works fine. My incubators have been walking off my left shoulder a little, so I added a Dutchware clip on quilt hook right where the zipper starts. It works like a charm. FYI- it didn't work off my shoulder on my WBBB.

    Thanks for all your feedback. Definitely sounds doable. And by that I mean I just placed my XLC order

    I have an incubator and an XLC. +1 to what others have said about adding a bit of line. Works just fine. Personally, I untie the overhand knot at one end and use a sheet bend to tie each piece to the end of the new stretch of cord or rope. That makes it act like a our extension.

    Congrats on the XLC. It's great!!
