    I too like having draft collars on my UQs. My draft collar-less CDT UQ has kept me warm too; but as Just Bill already stated, having cheap insurance is not a bad thing. I do think they would help if the quilt is not set up optimally.

    I made my underquilts, all 3/4 length. The foot end does let air in through the gaps. I modified them with draft collars at the foot end only. Not all the way across, only the middle half where the calf Ridge gap occurs.

    My sense of things is that adjusting the suspension tight enough that when you are in the hammock, the underquilt is really drawn tight enough is most important, and that the collars-I've a couple with them-only help some...Mainly the UQ needs to be pulled against you.

    +1 - I use ridgeline quilt hooks and have found they make a noticeable difference. In a netless hammock I'm able to connect and disconnect them without getting out and the difference is immediate. There are other ways of doing the same thing (triangle thingies, etc) but pulling the quilt up against the hammock really seals the ends.

    They also make it easy to detune the quilt for some venting by disconnecting in warmer conditions where you still want an UQ but are a little too warm.

    I wouldn’t dare go without them below freezing. So, I would only ever consider losing them for a 40° summer quilt.
