    Eno dn underquilt question

    Please someone recommend a 2/3 and 3/4 underquilt. I am a warm sleeper and move alot/ wide angle sleeper. I'm 235 and 5ft 9in. I am concerned about 2/3 uq slipping off my eno dn with the amount of movement I do. I would rather go 2/3 but didn't want foot pad to slide around also. The temp I camp in don't usually go lower than 30,s. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks to all for help with suspension recommendations. Woopie slings are awesome and man I lay flatter with adjustable ridge line.

    I use a DIY UQ made from Primaloft Sport. It measures about 46x58 which is fairly comparable to a 3/4 length UQ. I move a good bit too and i'm bigger than you are. I've never had any problems with the size of mine. In fact, Looking at the way i use mine, i think you can probably get away with a 2/3 length. i always end up pulling mine up so that the head end goes above where my head is in the hammock so that it the foot end comes up around my knees. I end up having a lot of extra UQ up at my shoulders (which can be nice, but isn't completely necessary). as far as the foot pad sliding around, try putting it inside the foot box of your TQ or sleeping bag. That has helped keep mine from sliding out from under my feet when i move in the night. hope this helps.

    p.s. Watch all of shug's videos. They are extremely helpful and just down right entertaining.

    i use the new river from arrowhead equipment which is full length. i believe the lost river or the jarbridge might be what your looking for he also has the flame thrower which is a fractional quilt as well. the price is right the quality is great.

    Hey, dont be worried about your pad slipping out from under your feet. I have had an Eno before i have upgraded(still sort of new to it) and it never slipped due to my weight( i'm only 125) If you also check out shug on youtube, he also has great advice, BUT if you are still concerned about it slipping, go with the 3/4 or full length UQ. If I might suggest one, the mt washington 3 would be a good UQ from jacksrbetter.com. It will definitely keep you warm in your weather.

    My first hammock was an ENO double and the under-quilt I went with first was from Paul over at Arrowhead. The lost river, I think, which ever the 2/3s one is. It was a great set up and I don't think you'd be disappointed. Working with Paul at AHE was great and he was super helpful.
    I went to the woods because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. -HDT
