    WTB Winter underquilt for short person

    I have 3S Yeti and a 3S Phoenix (900 down).
    I am looking for an underquilt that will (under)cover my 5'2" body. Full underquilts around 6 ft are too long for me. Needs to be down.
    I know Hammockgear would make me a custom one....but I'd like to see if there's one out there already made.
    Thanks

    Wouldn't a 2/3 or 3/4 underquilt be perfect for your whole body?

    +1 I was thinking the same thing. A winter phoenix would likely do the job just fine with it's length at 52" and a decent diagonal lay. I

    Mountaingoat, how well does your 3season phoenix cover your backside now?

    Cheers

    Phoenix

    I love the Phoenix. I like the width because it comes ip my sides so moch that I barely need anything on top to be cozy. It is not long enough though. I either need a doubled over pad under my lower legs and feet, or something under my neck and head. I just need another foot or a touch under that. I run cold and I do not want to fiddle with a pad.
