    Mozzie, et al,

    The footbox that ya'll keep refering to on the BB is a bit of a misnomer as far as UQs are concerned....The BB base is a 65 inch by 120 inch gathered end hammock....Every under quilt that fits gathered end hammocks fits the BB...for example all of the JRB UQ fit the BB, so I'm sure that the KAQ described will also fit....

    The "footbox" is primarily formed in the top by the triangle of material that replaces the bug net of the asym HH .... It has no impact on the bottom material or the fit of an under quilt.

    sorry about the link. I am sure that is what he is using since he mentioned it in Hot Springs at Ed's campout.

    That's what I found on a recent hike using a BB and the GEKAQ (yet to be named). All I needed to add was a short length of cord from one of the grosgrain loops up to a point directly above that on the hammock to bring out the UQ so that the feet wouldn't pop out of the UQ. I used a gripclip and a biner on the UQ to attach the 2 points. Worked well.

    I have a lot going on right now preventing me from keeping sales open. I have surgery next week (with a 2 week recovery) and a 2 week hike in June. I am only taking requests from people on HF and only when I can work it in to my schedule. Send me a PM with your request and I will see what I can do.

    Thanx Mrprez, but I also have some things I need to get first before I get an Underquilt, just thought I'd inquire for the greater good of the forums. Take your time with recovery and I will get in touch with you later. And, for sure, enjoy that hike!

    OK, thanks I'll do both! Once I get back from the hike, I should be able to reopen the website for orders and have all the info on the new model. Maybe even have a name for it!

    Make sure to give it a kickass name *pun intended*
