    DIY Bridge Hammock underquilt specs?

    Hello hello! Iím working on a diy Costco underquilt for my bridge hammock. Does anyone know what the appropriate measurements are for a properly fitting bridge underquilt?

    Thanks in advance, you all are the best.

    Thanks for the link. Any info on specific measurements for the quilt itself, not the hammock?

    Make your quilt the size of your bridge hammock. (Regardless of type)
    Costco quilts have around a 50* f comfort rating. So donít expect a cold weather quilt. You can stack two together to make it warmer, like a true 30* f quilt.
    Add a bit of shockcord at corners to attach to the edge of hammock suspension nearest the hammock. You can go full length or 3/4 length, depending if your counting grams.
    I layed my hammock out and traced the shape. It works fine. Since youíre using a Costco quilt, you do lose the effect of differential baffling. The shockcord allows for some billowing, but not like a vendor supplied quilt would.
    Also add in head and foot cinch cords to snug ends up.
