    Looking at a new underquilt

    I have been looking at www.hammockquilts.com and have been very interested in their 66" 15F underquilt. Does anybody currently, or has ever used one of these underquilts?

    Leighlo and her father hangnout are long time forum members and I, as well as many others here, can vouch for their work. The engineering and workmanship are top notch. If you do a search, you should be able to find a good number of hangers that swear by them.

    I just received the 15* 66 " on Thursday for a canoe trip over the weekend. Was easy to dial it in and the service from Leighlo was outstanding. I'm 5'10" and had good coverage. If you think of it as a short full length or maybe a 7/8 (15/16) length you're in the ball park. Temps got to the low 20's and I was nice and toasty. I like the size. Packs small and sets up easily. What ever you decide, won't go wrong with any of the cottage vendors, especially Leighlo

    from what i measured the 66" should hit me from my feet to my neck( im 5'11") and with me using my down jacket as a pillow i figured it should do me just fine without having the added weight of say a reg full size around 72".

    I bought one of Leighlo's 66", 15* under quilt for my son and he loves it. He uses it with his Hennessy Ultralight. It took him a little bit to get it dialed in, so I'd recommend practicing with it before you go camping with it.

    This is something you won't see out in the "real" world of non-HammockForums. A business endorsing the workmanship of a competitor. Good on you Stormcrow.
