    Arvis - Help!!!

    Now that the nights are getting cooler, I need to make a decision on an UQ. It seems the more I read the more 'fused I get... had I done my job in IBM with this much indecision, I surely would have been fired... not retired!!!
    I have an ENO DN and am pretty sure that I want a full UQ, and since weigth is an important consideration, I am thinking a down UQ. Also, concerned about space required in the backpack.
    Is there one that is more compatible with the ENO than the others?
    I will appreciate suggestions / recommendations / thoughts... I will seldom camp at less that 20 degrees.
    Thanks!!!!

    Lots of good UQ choices out there. As a former ENO hammocker, I can definitively say that you'll be hard pressed to find an UQ that won't work well with an ENO DoubleNest. Check out Jacks r Better, Te-Wa, Hammock Gear, etc. You really can't go wrong.

    As far as synthetic-vs-down, if you want something that will compress to a smaller space in your pack, go with down.

    Hooch speaks truth. If you want to keep things small you should definitely choose down over synthetic. You retired from IBM...you can afford it.

    I have an ENO Double Nest and use the Jacks R Better No Sniveler as an underquilt. It fits wonderfully and packs down very small.

    Lots of good quilt makers here. You really can't go wrong with any of them. Myself, I prefer down

    If you really want small, get a partial UQ. Often, you won't need anything under your feet, and when you do you can use your pack or a CCF sit pad. I carry a CCF torso pad as my pack frame and it insulates my legs well in the cold.
