    Water and wind resistant?

    Are all tq's and uq's wind and water resistant? some more than others? Is it how the fabric is made or a treatment that is applied? I am looking at the products by Hammock gear. Thanks.

    I would worry more about the UQ.

    Get a 2QZQ UQ protector.
    Great bang for the buck.

    Most of the fabrics used for quilts have a DWR (durable water repellent) coating on them that will make them fine for small amounts of water. Also many of the hammock forum vendors that make quilts are using ActivDri down which is a water repellent treatment applied to the down insulation so moisture becomes less of an issue.

    Cheers
