    UQ Length & versitility

    Other than size and weight, are there any other downsides to a full length UQ vs a 3/4?

    I mostly car camp or short walk camp and am looking at getting an Arrowhead or Cedar Ridge, full length, 20* synthetic as my primary UQ. That option seems to be the most versitle.

    Down the road, I'd like to add a summer 40* option and perhaps a down 3/4 for a lightweight.

    I camp primarily in the southeast.

    I just take the same 20F full length quilt on every 3-season trip, regardless of weather. It covers all the bases and leaves no regrets.

    You didn’t mention how tall you are. For some of us, a length UQ is nearly full length. And for some, a length might interfere less with a diagonal position. Like it will be mostly snug around your body and not be pushed near your feet.

    Sounds like you have a solid idea. The FL 20* synthetic will serve you well. Later, for summer hikes and mild weather, you can get by with the “shortie”.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.
