    tewa or yeti 3 season?

    Ok so now the debate is about the te-wa vs the yeti under quilts. What is everyones opinions on these? Looks like the te-wa is 6" longer for about 2 oz more weight.

    I have a Te-Wa and really like it. When I first got it I thought it was a summer quilt it was so light. After a few short minutes in the hammock though I was toasty. The Te-Wa along with a hammock sock, a well-pitched tarp and a hot water bottle helped me stay warm at 12 degrees. I don't own a Yeti but they too get great reviews. You could do what my wife does with shoes... but two and then sell the one you don't want. Either will move fast here.

    I don't think you can go wrong with either one. I have a couple Te-Wa sets. They are very well made and have exceeded my expectations. I have used the 3S set down to the teens a few times. I would recommend them to anyone.

    I don't have a Warbonnet UQ, but the TQ I picked up is nicely made. I would imagine the UQ would be made just as well.

    LOL sounds like I will have to save up and buy both and then resell the one I decide not too keep. I think I will try the warbonnet first because of the lighter weight and then go from there. If it works then im down an oz or so. Seems to make more sense then going the other direction.

    Got to say having so many great cottage manufacture sure does make life difficult when trying to decide what to buy! (Wouldn't have it any other way).

    I love my tewa breeze. Fits perfect on my hyperlight. You can even pick color combonations. Sure you can't go wrong with either though. No waiting list on yeti. Just go with the one that you think would work best for you.
