I currently use a 58" KAQ Jarbidge underquilt with my WBBB. It is well made, but I am looking for something made of down. I am looking at the HG Phoenix or WB Yeti, as well as other cottage partial length quilts. It seems like the foot end of the Jarbidge is a bit awkward in terms of length. It hits around my ankles, and the angle of the foot suspension up to the hammock seems odd, like it creates a gap, especially going over the footbox of my WBBB. I have messed around with triangle thingys and dutch quilt hooks, but it never seems quite right. While researching the other options, I am struck by how perfect the Yeti seems to fit. The suspension starts at mid-thigh and goes right to the hook up point, causing minimal gap if any. Has anyone else noticed this?
I was wondering about that angle with even a 52" Phoenix, thinking it even might be a bit in-between. I wondered if anyone here had a similar issue. Right now, the Yeti would be a no-brainer for me, but I am a little worried about the 40 inch width being too narrow. I am considering having Stormcrow make me a 45 inch wide, 46 inch long Phoenix, but I don't know if I am committed to paying more for custom. ( I think a couple of people here have a similar length. Lazy River Road maybe?_)
As usual, I might be overthinking this, but I always love the opinions on this site. Am I crazy for thinking that shorter underquilts hang more naturally?
