If you own a Hennesy Hammock and want an under-quilt that will mate up to the entry slit the Nest is the way to go.
Since our first purchase of two Nest we've bought four more JRB quilts (Stealth, Shenandoah. 2x Hudson Rivers). You cannot beat the quality of JRB gear.
Outstanding customer service!
The original hammock under quilt, The Nest is a solid three season quilt. It was specifically designed for the Hennessy Ultralite Backpacker A-sym but will work on virtually any lightweight camping hammock.
The design includes a split entrance w/non-snagging, double sex Velcro hook and loop called Omni-Tape that attaches to the Hennessy’s entrance hook and loop. It can be self fastened to form a flat quilt for cabin use or serve as a stand-alone top quilt or bag since it has a foot sack capability as well. Finally, it can be worn as a parka length vest on cool mornings or evenings.
The Nest attaches to the hammock in under a minute without sewing or special hardware (attachment instructions). It comes with a JRB Suspension System and the improved foot end draw cord modification to assist in elimination of the dead air pocket that sometimes is experienced under the legs. Includes a 1.2 oz. JRB silnyl compression sack that allows it to be stuffed to 7" x 7" x 8".
The Nest is nominally a 78" x 48" x 2.5", 21 ounce, down under quilt. It is baffled to 1.9 inches and over stuffed to achieve 2.5 inches of loft. The shell is two color, 1.1 ounce rip-stop nylon with DWR treatment. It has a light, subdued color on one side for aesthetic appearance and reflective qualities and a black side for warmth retention and to facilitate field drying (colors may vary depending on availability). The baffle are constructed with no-see-um netting and the quilt is filled with 800+ fill power down. And now it has all the attachment points to make it fully reversible - use it green side out or black side out.
