    UQ help

    I will finally have the funds to get an underquilt within the next 2 weeks.
    I have tried a neoair and a z-rest ccf, but do not find them comfortable.
    I have a wbbb dl 1.7 and I am considering either the winter yeti or the summer phoenix.
    I am leaning heavily toward the yeti, because it is made for my hammock.
    I have a golite UltraLite 3-Season Quilt as my tq, and I love it.
    I think the footbox in the tq will work to make up the difference in length with the yeti.
    This uq must serve me all year, because I can only afford 1.
    I backpack in the Carolinas, Virginia,and Georgia areas.
    What do y'all suggest?

    The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy."

    I agree with everyone!
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    I meant the 3-Season Phoenix, not the summer.

    I enjoy my summer and winter phoenix and 3 season incubator. All fit the WBBB like a glove. I really enjoy the 3/4 length. I find it to be perfect length for my height (6 foot).
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
