    places to look for UQ

    I would like to see everything out there before I pick something, I want winter insulation for michigan winters, so I need an underquilt that can keep me warm down to 0, I do the ultra light thing so weight is an issue.

    Where can I get the best info for a UQ

    In my humble opinion you can't go wrong with either ... I won't say "exactly" who my top pick would be ...

    If you're just looking for the raw data, such as cost, dimensions, expected temp ratings, etc then dejoha compiled a list of hammocking manufacturers and stormcrow compiled a quilt comparison chart.

    These two lists should give you a good start. I personally have yet to hear any complaint about any of the quilts made by our cottage industry leaders here.

    All the vendors here on HF make great quilts but IMHO Hammockk Gear is my numero uno choice for many reasons. Cost, creativeness, excellent new design, fabric and color choices and best of all customizable in any way and channel suspension. I have numerous quilts from Hammock Gear and love them all. But in the end the best UQ is the one you decide works best for you.
    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.

    Many good sources but may I suggest that you look for ones that have a differential cut. Less fussy to adjust.

    wow, this is a great resource, thanks to Stormcrow, for the work, and Catavarie for bringing it to my attention!
