    That would give you some flexibility in your setup, but I think I would just opt for a full size under quilt. I could see where you might have cold spots and gaps in the area where the quilts meet.

    Or, if you already have one torso length UQ, why not just use the leg pad as designed? It doesn't seem there would be enough of a comfort boost going from leg pad to full length UQ to be worth trying to get two torso length quilts to work together, and working with two dif suspensions, etc.. Plus, I suspect two torso length ( 3/4 length? ) UQs would be longer ( heavier ) than one full length UQ.

    But, I suppose if you have two Yeti's and really didn't want to use or carry a leg pad, it might be worth experimenting with. If you don't have two( or even one Yeti), but absolutely do no want to carry or use a leg pad, like HC4U said, better just get a UQ designed for full length use from the get go.
    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.

    It would be interesting to see how two Yeti's work out. I'm guessing it would work fine. I'd prefer it over a pad. I hate pads because of the awful condensation. Maybe for colder temps a winter Yeti at the head end and the three season at the foot end.

    for all you pad-haters, have you tried one only under the legs? it's not the same at all. you hear about back sweating, not leg sweating.

    i have wondered about shug's 2-uq idea too but i haven't tried it yet either.

    Brandon, actually I used a pad just from the end of the Yeti to the feet and my sleeping bag was soaked at the foot end. The Blackbird was soaked all the way through and there was standing water droplets in the hammock. All of this though only at the foot end. Under the Yeti was bone dry. This happened about three times. After that I decided enough of pads. Last few times out I just put my pack in the hammock for the foot end and have had no condensation issues.
