Climashield apex UQ
Woohoo! 1st synthetic UQ!
Slightly over-cut on the top to allow for loft of the one layer of 5 oz climashield apex.
I have 1/8 inch shock-cord along all sides and i just pull them tighter depending on if it's me or my fiance and i in the hammock. So far, no noticed cold-spots.
So far this thing is TOASTY down to 35 with us both in it. I sleep hot, she sleeps cold. We use a 6oz primaloft one TQ that i made a while back.
climashield apex from thru-hiker.com
1.1 oz ripstop nylon from rockywoods.com
25ft of 1/8 in shock cord from REI
4 of those spring loaded cord lock things from REI
55" x 85" finished

Sweet quilt!!! You should be proud.
What does it weigh?

Love 'em while you got 'em
It will be interesting to see how low you can take that 5 oz layer of CS! If every thing else is just right with the quilt and fit, I'm betting well into the 20s or a bit lower, and soaking fog won't ever be a big problem for that quilt.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
