I had some pretty involved plans for a half underquilt that I discussed in the Underquilt Ideas thread on Hammock Forums...but I'm not there yet. I still had the first prototype of the DownHammock, with only half the down in it b/c I took the other half to make version 2. So I just shook the down to one end and cut the hammock in half! Then I added drawstring cords on all four edges and hooked it up!
- Finished dimensions of the insulated area are about 48"L x 39"W.
- Weight is 12-3/4 oz, not including attachments. ~6 oz of that is down.
- Loft is 4+" on the bottom, but I don't know if it'll really be that much when I hang it.

|Half Underquilt v1|
|From the left side, with my wife napping inside. It insulates from above my head to just below my knees. I'm still playing with the suspension, but I think it's gonna be shock cord attached to the corners and running to the hammock supports, then a piece of shockcord or elasting along the short edges. Shouldn't need too much adjustment since I can pull it completely tight against the hammock without worrying about compression.|
