  •  Insulated Hammock socks have been discontinued.
  • MMG now uses PPEF with a nylon covering instead of Insultex. When we use the term "IX" we mean PPEF.
  • The UQ layers are Differential Cut (outer layer slightly larer than inner layer). This makes it less critical how you hang the UQ.
  • MMG IX UQs are covered with nylon on both sides.
  • Full length Shamu UQs are 78" long. 3/4 Baby Orca UQs are 52" long. Both are about 45" at the widest point. 
  • Jerry Chairs are the same size as 3/4 IX UQs.
  • These underquilts fit all gathered end hammocks, including Hennessey, ENO, Speer, Switchback, DIY, as well as Warbonnet Blackbird and Traveler. 
  • All MMG  UQs have End Channels to assist you in fitting them to your hammock.
  • Regarding condensation: You should be aware of conditions that could cause condensation if you use MMG PPEF UQs outside other insulation. If you are unsure, then put the PPEF against the hammock. 
 What is PPEF?  Perforated PolyEthylene Foam is what MacEntyre uses instead of Insultex. The outer layers of Insultex are polypropylene scrim. The middle layer of Insultex is PEF: 1/32" polyethylene foam. MacEntyre uses just the PEF, and he perforates it so that when you stuff it, the air has somewhere to go. He faces PPEF with lightweight nylon on both sides to protect it.


Hammock Socks:

Nylon Hammock Sock with SEEP - 16 oz. Fits all gathered end hammocks, except those with a bottom entry. Made with breathable nylon. This sock opens along one side, at the edge of the hammock, using the SEEP (Side Entry/Exit Portal). The SEEP is an overlapping top with a full length opening. The sock is completely covered by the overlapping top. Use the Sock by itself, or put an UnderQuilt inside. The non-insulated Sock will add more warmth than you would imagine. Since it encloses the entire hammock, it eliminates edge gaps that allow cold air to spill in. It is a 'micro climate', water resistant, wind proof cover. It is easier to get in and out of this sock than any other!

Add a lower panel to the SEEP, suspended with shock cord, which provides an overlapping closure.  The upper portion of the SEEP is shortened accordingly.
