    All of them represented on this site are great. My personal choice was the Crowsnest by Hammock Gear. Adam does great work!

    I own the Yeti 3S, but can't speak for Leigh's UQ.

    I've been comfy down to 27 degrees F. with the Yeti (no reflective liner & sleeping in my clothes in a 25 degree sleeping bag). It packs VERY small (1 L Nalgene size or smaller) and has been my warmer season "go to" UQ. I have a Crow's Nest for slightly cooler temps...it's 3/4 length and a bit wider with more loft than the Yeti. I like 'em both. When I'm aiming for lightweight, I go with the Yeti. When I'm aiming for comfort and a bit more coverage, I take the Crow's Nest. When my wife goes with me, we take both (she gets the Yeti!!!).

    I am in the same boat as Hawk-eye, I own the Crowsnest and that piece is a thing of beauty!
    But they all are very good, and will serve you well, basically you won't be disappointed no matter which way you go!!

    I'll give the nod to Leigh's 2/3 under quilt. Mine is well made light weight and extremely packable. I got it earlier this year so I've only had it out on a few overnight / weekend hangs thus far. But it has performed flawlessly for me.

    I love my Mount Washington 3 convertible UQ, from Jacks-R-Better. It's a great full length UQ in the winter and converts to a 2/3 UQ in the summer.

    the yeti is a very nice UQ ....i used one down to 17 degrees no problem(very warm sleeper) but too short for my taste ..but packs donw really small

    the crowsnest is one of my Fav UQ ....it's wide so it covers yous shoulders good ..i have the winter nest and let me tell ya...this thing is bomb proof

    if you are looking to go full length the JRB makes one hell of a UQ...i love my Hudson river ..it's my goto quilt in colder weather

    hope this helps
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold
