    If I'm feeling like a gram weenie then my 3 season Yeti is my go to UQ. I'm 6 ft tall and use a reflectix pad and a down pillow with it. Also, just invested in some Mont Bell down pants that I can wear around camp and then sleep in to stretch the rating on the Yeti.

    It's already been said by a couple of folks...all of your choices are good. I like the size and weight of the Yeti when I plan to cover a lot of ground as it is just over 13 ounces.

    And...there are other UQs that are worth looking at too.

    G-Nut.
    Do more with less...and repeat...or, get "Roched" on every piece of cool, lightweight gear you see and end up being a gear junky like me!!

    Has the yeti ever been too small for anyone? It's smaller and lighter than other quilts.

    I have always slept well and warm in my Winter Yeti. It is custom designed for a Blackbird but I have used it often on my DIY Greenbean hammock.

    My son boy is a pretty big boy, 6'2 or 3 and and 220 or more. He has used my synthetic Yeti twice and been nothing but toasty both times. I am only slightly smaller, and same for me.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Not sure about the others but I have owned a yeti and it is well made with a lot of loft. I am sure they are all good but not sure if they all have the same kind of suspension (only know about the yeti in a shorter length). The yeti has sliding channels i.e. you can slide it forward or backward from inside the hammock. This is supposedly good for venting, etc. For me, it just made adjusting dead simple. On the BB, the ends just wrap over the gathered ends and you're done.

    Edit: I do own leighlo (no longer in biz) and hg quilts and can attest to their high quality and would not hesitate to buy ANYTHING from them. You could probably flip a coin..

    Yeti for the weight

    I'll second that. The Yeti is about the shortest of the short UQs. It's more of a 1/3-length than a 3/4 length. I'm 6'1" and if I position the top of it even with my shoulders, the bottom stops right below my butt cheeks. That's one of the reasons it's lighter. Not good or bad - just what it is. I like it for everything from 70 down to 30 or so. Below 30 and I need a different TQ anyway so I can't comment on that temp range.

    I'm in the same boat trying to decide. I would think the yeti would have a better fit for the WBBB since it is made specifically for it. I am about to buy a WBBB XLC and need to decide fast.

    To the OP, seventyfivefj40 what happened to the shoyoroll avatar? Hehe that's what I have.
