    Need help choosing

    So I have had my WBBB 1.1 Dbl for several months and used it several nights now. I absolutely love it. I have a GG White lightning tarp that is working fine for now. I am in the market for some bottom insulation. I have used a 3/4 ridgerest for cool 60ish nights with no issue, but I am thinking it is time for a nice 3 season underquilt.

    Right now I am leaning towards either the Phoenix or the Incubator. I am 6' and 225# with broad shoulders so the size seams better for me than the Yeti. I am open to other suggestions as well. I am leaning full size but think 3/4 may be ok for me since I sleep warm. Money is not a concern, I just want comfort!! So let me hear it, what do you think, and any other suggestions are appreciated.

    Thanks-Lance

    I guess weight is not a concern either? 3/4 should suffice if you are a warm sleeper. I'm a big guy and have no issues with mt Yeti but any extra width couldn't hurt.

    weight is a concern, but not major. I quit counting ounces a while back. Went ultralite and all that, but decided comfort driven is more for me. baseweight is still in the 15# range which works great for me. I may jump on the incubator for sale in the For Sale forum right now. Thanks for your input.

    Can't go wrong with an Incubator. Nice jump from a pad in terms of comfort IMO. Enjoy!

    I have a Yeti that I use most often, but I also have a JRB No Sniveller that can be rigged as a full length underquilt. And I have to say, for all out comfort, if you're not counting the grams, the full length does have its advantages. Toasty warm with no worries on the footsies - no pad or nothing, just pure comfort.

    Thanks for the input. I bought an Incubator 3 season from the For Sale forum for $200, That should do me well, just in time for Fall, and i have 3 trips in September already planned, can't wait to use it! Thanks again.
