Re: Underquilt thought
- Hi Steve,
I did this with my "underquilt". I put it in quotes becuase what
mine really is is a neatsheet cut to fit my HH with elastic cord
running along the sides, no insulation to speak of unless I add some
like the GI Insulator does. Anyway, what I did was instead of
running the elastic cord along the entire length of each side I have
it going about half way. I then crisscross it over the ridge line in
kind of big X and tie it to the cord on the other side. It hold the
middle of the neatsheet right up to the hammock body. I cut two
small holes in the neatsheet wear the side cords for the HH come
out. It worked pretty well so far. But I haven't tried it in any
major wind and the coldest night was about 45 F.
