right, so you want down, you want small, you want warm- I hope you also don't want cheap.
You could try picking a model or two, and posting a new thread with that in the title to lure out owners of the hammocks and the quilts that you identify. Ie (Quilt X- does it fit a HH and a BB?)
Here's an old thread about 3/4 quilts (specifically the yeti) and Hennesy bottom entry hammocks:
hope it helps!
my hammock gear weights total: 2430g (~86oz)
Winter: total 2521 (~89oz)
(see my profile for detailed weights)
gram counter, not gram weenie!
I had a zipper mod put in and I use a 3/4 length underquilt and it works down to the mid 20s.
I will check out that link, thanks.
So as per titanium_hiker's suggestion, I've spent half the night looking at different quilts and have narrowed it down to a few:
Warbonnet 3-Season Yeti ($190+30 ship)
HammockGear's 20*F Pheonix ($179.00)
Wilderness Logistic's "Under Quilt (Down)" 3/4 Length ($160 USD)
Wilderness Logistics Summer UQ ($135)
Right now I'm leaning towards the last one, the summer series quilt. It's an incredibly attractive price, only slightly more than the Jarbridge River but it's down. It's also full length, so no cold feet, but I wonder if that insulation would be better spent at my torso in the 3/4 version which goes down to 20F.
I also really looked at the jarbridge again, the price is definitely right but I want the compactness of down, I don't want to have to spend the money all over again when I feel rich enough to upgrade. So as attractive as $100 is I just can't bring myself to go with this one.
So has anyone tried the 3/4 or Summer UQ from Wilderness Logistics?

Check out Underground Quilts. There are many reviews in the "other manufacturers" section.

i use a summer pheonix on my hennessy and it fits pretty well. i just don't use the tie outs on the body of the hennessy. the only thing that sucks is that my hammock is the bottom entry one so adjusting the quilt after i get in doesn't really work out.
it looks like the photo above from anthony is using his tie outs so maybe i'll have to try that, i found that if i didn't use the tie outs the quilt wrapped up around my shoulders fairly well.
