    I won't speak for the temp, but I found it quite easy to attach to a snugpak jungle hammock and also a grand trunk ul hammock. The suspension system was easy to setup IMO. I didn't modify anything.

    true i just ran out of people to ask stuff from. But my pack weight is starting to get high which is second reason of going with the underquilt to save weight.

    Lol i wish with the food -n- water . but yeah problem is either one i'd get be lugging a 3lb sleeping bag and 3lb wool blanket and 1lb poly throw with so it can go down to 10 degrees but yeah am thinking end of this year to get the cocoon and get one of them down sleeping bags to cut weight even more but while be a bit to get that stuff, so the underquilt would be more of to settle me for now till i can take it down weight . And yeah the cocoon does look cool. Good luck on cutting back on weight on you loadout.

    I don't have the under quilt but I do have the cocoon. The cocoon can be used like an under quilt I guess. I do know that at three feet you can't feel a leaf blower on high blasting away at it from inside. It blocks the wind very nicely. We tested it one night in the high 20's to low 30's with only a MMS (all three) bag inside and Lazy Squirrel measured the inside air temp at 78 degrees with him snug inside the bag. He started sweating shortly and had to come out of the bag. Their products work but the sewing is a big issue. One of my cocoons came without tabs and the other tore some stitching the first time out even though I was very careful with it.

    Fellow member Lazy Squirrel bought one last week and has had no issues as of yet. He immediately took it to the river and hung by a sand bar on an over nighter. There were no discrepancies when he received it either.

    I have the snugpak uq. I like it. I'm a budget friendly camper and this to me was a great buy. Half the price of the next one up. I used it in 18 degrees with a self inflating pad and zero degree bag and I was toasty. Setting it up was easy. Once I had it set up, I tied knots in the attaching chords and added a carabiner on each end so it would be easy to set up and take down in the future.

    I got the Snugpak uq for Xmas from my wonderful wife. I've yet to use it in the field, but it's worked well in my cold basement. Easy to set up. Compression sack is nice. Stitching appears to be good, but time will tell. For under $50 for bottom insulation, the Snugpak really can't be beat.

    I'm by no means well versed in underquilts, but anyone have any experience with these?

    Outdoor Vitals OV-Roost 40°F UnderQuilt / Sleeping Bag, Use As Ultralight UnderQuilt, Sleeping Bag, or Double Bag (40°F / Blue, Regular) https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01HQU4A84/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_89.CybDBAH9J9

    Roughly same price, usable as a sleeping bag, and 2 lbs lighter if I'm reading correctly.

    All apologies if I'm derailing the OPs intended thread.

    Sarge seems to dig it.


    They make a cooler weather version, too. I believe that the Snugpak will take you to cooler temps than the Roost. This may account for some of the weight difference.

    This video helped me greatly. It really simplifies the suspension system. I can provide more details and pictures when I setup my hammock next. He uses some Dutchware gear....their stuff is awesome. Dutch is a great guy and I highlight recommend giving him your business (I am in no way affiliated, just a happy customer).

    I guess I'll chime in here...

    Last weekend I finally mixed enough alcohol with my OCD to try hanging in my SP underblanket. I think we brushed 50 degrees for the low, and I was a happy and toasty camper.

    My attachment solution was to simply tie a few jank-ass knots in all the cords and hook them to the tarp prussics on my stock Hennessy Explorer. One beer and some monkey work adjusting the knots and I was hanging gap free. I have a pic somewhere if you want to see.

    Just my .02, but I love the thing! I also have the Hennessy bubble pad and super-shelter system, but won't miss the bulk in the warmer months.
