I am a noob to the hammock world and quickly learned that I will need an under quilt to prevent "cbs" or some other insulation like a pad or poncho.
after doing a lot of looking at under quilts and top quilts a few questions or ideas have developed... Hopefully someone out there can help me avoid the pitfalls of trial by fire and elevate me to buy once cry once. So here it goes.
(1) Is there a set up quilt wise for all seasons (one top quilt and one bottom) if so what would it be?
Looking at the two quilts the top quilt seems to be more expensive in general from most vendors. (2) Is this due to fit and finish? (2b) More material? (2c) or what? The under quilt seems to have more features like a dynamic cut, cordage, hardware, ect; (2d) so am I missing something?
(3) Is different temp rate quilts are really the best way to dial in the perfect hang or is venting and being warmer with lower temp rated gear and saving a ton of cash the way to go?
(4) Is it taboo to use a snap mod to a full length quilt to convert it into a top quilt and use it as a top quilt? (4b) or is there not enough material in a under quilt to do so? (4c) or does it come down to the fit and finish and entrapment in all the cordage that is the issue?
Thanks in advance.
I have a HG 20 incubator uq on order. And it snows only a few weeks out of the year where I live.
