Here's how to rig the Costco down Throw underquilt we built in the last video, along with some commentary about it and what you can expect out of it.

So there I was. Had my hammock strung up in the back yard. Had my Sarge approved Costco down throw UQ and Booster fresh off the assembly table. Took my laptop outside to step-by-step set it up. Attache the 2 main biners, check. Attach the the four small s-biners to prussiks on the ridgeline...hmmm, integrated bug net...it was as if Lucy had just pulled the football out from in front of me. AAAAAGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!! I think I found a suitable work around, and unlike Charlie Brown, after flying thru the air, I landed flat on my back, in a very warm hammock. Can't wait for next weekend to really give it a go.

It appears 'tis time to explore the mysteries of a supplemental ridge line.
