Yeah - 40" might be about right. I like to lay on my back with my legs bent and feet together so my knees raise up and rest on the sides of the hammock. If I'm on a pad my legs get cold b/c there's no side insulation, but I think a 40" quilt would be just enough to keep them warm. Plus it would be a little less finnicky on setup.
Since I started carrying a sit pad, I see no reason for a full-length underquilt. I don't get the condensation issues on my legs that I get on my torso when I sleep on a CCF pad, and since CCF is lighter and multi-use, it's a good fit for my style. Right now, at least - I'm sure I'll find something else to tinker with as soon as I'm satisfied with this system!
“Republics are created by the virtue, public spirit, and intelligence of the citizens. They fall when the wise are banished from the public councils because they dare to be honest, and the profligate are rewarded because they flatter the people, in order to betray them.” ~Judge Joseph Story
