Thank you 2Q&ZQ for an excellent job on my hammock! It was after 10:00pm when I opened my package, but I had to run outside to set it up and try it out for a bit and was very satisfied. When I ordered I decided to go almost whole hog and bought a bunch of stuff with my mod 4, including the breathable uqp, peak bag, and ridgeline storage. Great stuff! I'm also excited that it is possible to store all of these things in the original HH stuff sack with my Expedition so no additional bags to worry about!
I was surprised at the noticeable effect the uqp had on holding in some warmth on its own. While in the hammock, I removed and replaced the uqp a couple of times and it really made a quick difference by holding that pocket of air below me.

I am waiting on some uqp's, peak bags, and rl organizers myself.
They shipped earlier this week so hopefully tomorrow.
I had been wondering about using the uqp by itself like you would a windbreaker in cool temps. Sounds like that's a go.
My UQP arrived today and it looks great. Same colour material as my WBBB. Well made. Can't wait to put it on the Blackbird.
I had a bad experience last fall getting all my warmth stolen by the wind, so I hope this will be the solution for me. I'll post some pics when I get it put on.
