    New KAQ model coming soon!

    I am working out the final details on a gathered end hammock underquilt. I have sent one test model off for evaluation. I tested it here on a Speer and a Claytor Jungle Hammock and it worked pretty well. The good news is the cost will be $120 for the regular (up to 6' tall) and $130 for the tall (6'+), shipping is not included. The regular model weighed in right at 1 lb 14 ounces but actual weight will vary an ounce or 2 either way due to differences in the insulation.

    I hope to have these on the website for ordering within 2 weeks.

    Looks great, John! I like the high sides and full length.

    What's the target temperature rating?

    Glad to learn you are producing quilts for non-asymmetrical hammocks. I'm curious to learn how well this will fit my Hammock Bliss no-see-um netted hammock. Probably fit will be similar to the Claytor Jungle Hammock since the Bliss and JH seem similar. Do let us know when these are ready.

    Somewhere in the high 30s I'd say. The effective clo rating is 4.38. It uses the same insulation as the Potomac model.
