RE: [Hammock Camping] "The Nest"
- I have also received my nest underquilt from "The Jacks" and think that
it is AMAZING!! The quality of workmanship is great. I haven't had any
cold weather to try it out in yet, but tried it out in 70 degree F temp
and it made it warm! I can't wait until it gets cold enough to really
test it out, I don't have any doubts that it will work well.
I also had a wonderful experience in dealing with the Jacks. They were
quick to respond to any questions that I had, and they also let me know
promptly of any delays that they encountered.
I would highly recommend this product solely on the craftsmanship and
the customer service, and I look forward to having a cool/cold weather

Subject: [Hammock Camping] "The Nest"
Spent 2 nights out on the Southern half of the AT in CT in my new "Jacks r better" Nest. Extremely enjoyable. I went for the entire package. The "Nest", and "no sniveling" quilt. Got to love these names. Set up was very easy with the directions. I was a little concerned about the velcro opening working, But 1 of the Jacks replied quickly to my e-mail and explained the dynamics to me.
I wore silk weight Golite poly long underwear. Both nights were in the 50 degree range.
The 1st night I was amazed at how much more comfortable a hammock is without a pad. Stayed toasty all night.
2nd night we were on the highest hill in the area 1500', so it was a little breezy. Again toasty all night.
The only discomfort I felt was a slight coolness at my back. It was'nt cold from the bottom because when I was on my side I did not feel it. I think it must have been a damp long underwear top (from sweat) that caused a cold spot.
Using their skins, setup and taking down was a snap.
This was my nicest and warmest experience yet in my Hennessey Ultralight A-Sym.
The Nest and No sniveling quilt are a 2 piece down sleep system. A quilt for inside and an external quilt that attaches with bungees to envelop the sleeping area. Hammock and sleep system combined are 4.44 lbs.
