    underquilt size

    I've been using my Warbonet traveler and absolutely love it. I'm thinking about getting an underquilt as the temps keep dropping. My question is this: I use all 65 inches of width on my hammock when I sleep diagonally. Most of the underquilts, like the Incubator, are only 40-44 inches wide. Is the narrower underquilt a problem? Are they easy to adjust so that they sit diagonally under the hammock?

    I'm sure that this question has been asked a million times, but I'm thinking I like the full-length Incubator - are there better underquilts out there?

    My DIY synthetic UQ is 44" wide x 54" long. It's made with shock cord channels on the sides. Once in the hammock, I'm able to grab it & twist to near any position I want.

    I think the crowsnest and incubator are the widest of the available underquilts. A saw a thread that compares all available uq's side-by-side. All are adjustable so you can position them to suit your lay.
