I've purchased a second down throw (1st to be made into a bivy
sack w/ fleece liner) and your idea finishes a compact under quilt idea.
Thanks for the fly idea. At least I can duplicate what your have done or
fashion something to those measurements.
Thanks for the quick and easy way of doing a difficult
task. Now it is my turn to try my hand. The rings on the support
lines fill in one of my unknowns.

"Underfly" project with photos
As mentioned last week, I did some experimenting with a
cheap North Face down blanket as an underquilt. The down
works pretty well but I think the undershell design turned out to
the main success of the project. I made a few easy mods to the
standard Hennessy silnylon fly so it can also be used as an
shell below the hammock (I have a MacCat tarp on order so
my goal was to
reuse the stock rain fly for this purpose rather than
try to build a light
one from scratch).
