13334Re: What,s the best underquilt for a Hennessy Hammock?
- Apr 4, 2006I modified my rayway quilt to be an underquilt. I undid the footbox
seam and added 18" velcro closure. This partially closed blocks off
escaping air. Drawstrings may work better, but I found that a mirage
style over/underquilt is the best option. I made mine 60" wide and 8
ft. long. The extra 6" wide and 20" long compared to the rayway quilt
aleviate the need for a top quilt saving weight. I made mine out of
1.3" primaloft, but a few layers of p3d would work too. I have taken
it down to 35* before a chill starts to take effect. I sleep hot
though. It weighs about 38 oz and doesnt require much cutting or patterns.
Just my 2 cents
