    Te-Wa should be on your short list also.

    Check out this post. Including Stormcrow's post which is #5. It's not the most up to date spreadsheet, but it's a good start.

    Have not used or even touched but Leigh's 2/3 (hangnouts) has received positive reviews here at hf.

    Just purchased Mule's Yeti and on the list for Mac's IX. Will be an interesting comparison. Have used the Yeti Winter model into the mid 50*F. Bit overkill for 50's even with only a summer synthetic tq that weighs less than 12oz.

    I have two of her 3 season UQ's and I have been nothing but pleased with them.

    I don't have a scale so I can't tell you the weight of it exactly though.

    I'm a bit aprehensive about using a 2/3 vs a 3/4. Thoughts?

    I use them exclusively any more. I too was apprehensive about a short UQ. More so because my feet have been frostbitten and are now pretty sensitive to the cold. In the two years that have followed, I have been down in very cold temps (-17F and below) using my short UQs. I generally use my backpack as insulation under my feet (pack inside the hammock with me). This also gives me a nice knee-break in the hammock. I used pads under my feet at the beginning, but found no benefit to pads over just using my pack. Not to mention saving about 11oz over the weight of a typical full length UQ.

    I just can't see a reason why I would go back to a full length UQ, not for hiking anyway.
    Trust nobody!
