    VIDEO: 3/4 or 2/3 Under Quilt...

    I noticed that there was a few threads as to which would be a better fit... a 3/4 Phoenix or a 2/3 Yeti Under Quilt.... Since I had both I figured I would put them side by side:



    Hope this helps you guys out in making the decision.

    Your video lists a 61" length for the HG.
    Maybe it is, and maybe that is why it is so much larger than the Yeti in the stuff sack. The stock 3/4 length HG Phoenix is 52".
    I suspect you have a custom Phoenix, extra length and with extra down.

    No it's not custom I got the specs from a thread here because HG website was down when I was creating the video. It's an easy video fix

    Thanks for watching! I finally had a chance to play with the Fronknet today but for some reason my mouth and my mind weren't in sync and I was burning daylight. Gonna have to re-shoot.

    I have two HG Incubator UQ's, the 40*F and the 0*F. On both of them, the knot on the shock cord is at the food end.
    And as usual, a great review.
    Best,

    I have a 20* Incubator and the knot on the shock cord is at the head end.

    Thanks for the vid Raul. I especially liked the embedded two camera angles.
