    Is it possible to swap out the lines for elastic ones?

    What’s the stuffed package size? I use a hammock for motorcycle camping and space is at a premium. I’ve been using space blankets with a high degree of success, but like you point out, they don’t pass moisture well.

  3. J. says:

    If the cordage is removed, as in no “bunching”, what are the measurements of this sheet of thermacapture? Hemmings and such? Does it cover the same space as a grabber space blanket?

    I won’t hold you to an answer, BUT, with an underquilt, how much more effective do you believe it to be?

    • Derek says:

      I would look at it this way: an under quilt provides the warmth and insulation while the weather cover provides wind and moisture protection for the under quilt. A cover like this will add a few degrees of warmth to a quilt by blocking connective heat loss and trapping more dead air space. I think a good hybrid design would be to merge this weather cover with an under quilt instead of having them separate.

    This looks I deal to increase the warm on those windy nights. I hang is a Warbonnet Blackbird XLC and with 2/3 underquilt. Do you think the fit would work with this set-up?

    Thanks for reviewing this. I’m looking for a low-priced UQ to use in Arizona and can’t decide between this and a SnugPak Under Blanket. Have you tried the SnugPak? If so, I’d be interested to hear your opinion. Thanks again.

    • Derek says:

      Mmm Arizona. My hometown 🙂 a synthetic quilt from arrowhead equipment is reasonably priced. I haven’t tested SnugPak, but it looks similar to the DD Hammock quilts. Good prices. Summer rating for warmth.

  7. Craig says:

    2 questions:
    1) Is the shape of this hammock “warmer” compatible with a Warbonnet Ridgerunner?
    2) Would it be possible to put a blanket between this and the hammock, and make it appropriately snug by adjusting the warmer’s tension? That is, could you put a “quilt” there without having shock cords and whatnot attached to the quilt?

    • Derek says:

      It can fit a ridge runner if you remove the elastic that gathers up the ends. It may work as is but you’ll have to hold it out and in place.

      To put a layer between you’ll need to ensure the suspension on the warmer is tight.
