Now this makes a lot of sense. Maybe the reason the choice is so hard to make is that the choice is not clear cut or a matter of taste. Maybe I should resign myself to ultimately owning more than one underquilt, if so the question would be which to buy first.
One thing I have noticed - the full length Hammock Gear Incubator 20* is amazingly popular and is nearly my choice at this point. But I am unsure of the camping styles of those who favor this quilt. Are they backpackers setting off on week long trips like I am.
So it is tempting to go with a 3/4 quilt and do the pad thing to save ounces and see how that works for me, figuring I may well end up adding the HGI-20 at some point anyway. The choices in 3/4 quilts seem to be the Yeti, the Te-Wa antifreeze or the HG Phoenix, probably others -- for some reason the Te-Wa quilts are talking to me ... but once I settle the 3/4 versus full question all the choices in either category seem excellent, as you say.
