Any DIY'ers on here willing to make an UQ that I can buy from you?

I did a down project once. Swore I would never do it again. I can keep an ear out though, what are you thinking of?

Something for a nice 20 degree night. I don't care if it's down or synthetic. My first DIY project was a PLUQ... But it's not quite enough... Plus, in order to get it to actually work, I have to cut holes in it and do some other things... I want to be able to use it as a blanket if I need to... And not have to worry about cinch cords and shock cord all through it... So, used it once, it was ok... But not enough

I have honestly, been looking at the ENO UQ nly because it's affordable... But I don't really like it much... Seems like I'd still be cold...

Probably. I've not known anyone to use one which probably means it isn't good.

I've got a DIY tripple layer IX underquilt which I do not use. I've never had any luck staying warm with IX, but some folks swear by it. I'd look into IX before trying it though. I personally feel IX is hokum.

If you are interested in synthetic I've heard good things about Kick Ass Quilts: http://arrowheadequipment.webs.com/kickassquilts.htm

The 20 degree zeppelin is basically what I'm looking for... I'm just wondering if someone could do it cheaper....

I hear Jermm is really handy with the old needle and thread. I don't know if she does contract work.

FYI: Jermm is out on an extended hike

Cool beans. Maybe when she gets back.

there should be a thread on hammock forums about this uq. If not start a thread and ask who has one
