Handy Underquilt Option.

Its nice to have everything I need for an underquilt in a little kit! I’ve purchased two of these now. One with 5oz Climashield and one with 2.5 oz Climashield. I modified the design slightly. The hardest part about doing an underquilt seems to be lining up all the layers and not getting them pulled out of being square. The Climashield is a little tricky to sew straight. It likes to catch on the sewing machine foot.

Thanks for your review Rebekah! We're glad the kits are handy and easy to make! We'd love to see pictures of your creations, here a link if you'd like to share https://forms.gle/P4EHrfiWJ5kajdrE8

Great Project!

Made this in 1 weekend. Got to use it along with several others kits in the wind and rain. Temp got down into the 40s and I stayed nice and toasty! Love it!

Thanks Alex! We're glad that the UQ Kit was quick and easy to make. Let us know if you have any questions about future projects, we're here to help!

Awesome kit!

I made mine smaller than directed (46”x50”) for a minimal summer uq, that goes from above my shoulders to the back of my knees.(I’m 6’1”) With the 3.5 apex it came to just over 13 oz with a stuff sack. Had enough stuff left over to make a stuff sack for it and an apex balaclava.

Thanks so much for the review Jacob! That is a great hack for the DIY kit, thanks for sharing! We're glad that your UQ turned out well, we'd love to see photos! Be sure to tag us on IG or email photos to social@ripstopbytheroll.com

3/4 underquilt

Arrived promptly with no directions, but I found them online. Plenty of fabric and insulation to complete project. However, the elastic cord is very short on my completed 3/4 length quilt. It might be ok on full size, but due to the shorter length quilt, longer elastic cord is needed to run to the hammock suspension.
