    ENO Underquilts

    What underquilts would work best with an ENO DN hammock? Also any opinions on full vs 3/4 length? I'm almost certain that I want a 0 degree UQ, I can adjust position as needed during warmer months. Any ideas?

    I have an ENO Doublenest, and I love my HammockGear.com Incubator, which is the full length UQ. I have the 20 degree, and am confident that it could keep me comfortable in lower temps. A 0 degree would be luxuriously warm and possibly hot depending on the weather in your part of the world- but as you said, you can adjust the positioning for warmer temps. I also have a Hammock Gear Top Quilt, also 20 degree- and the combo is great. Good luck.

    Anything that can go under a gathered end hammock will work even a cheap Wally world pad.

    Try making one on the cheap from military poncho liners. For under $50 bucks you can make one that will get you down to freezing.

    Its what I use and have yet to have a problem with it being too hot or cold because its adjustable for different seasons.
    Don't take life so seriously, its not permenant.

    pretty much any quilt will fit any hammock. A 3/4 length will still need to be supplemented with a pad under your feet/legs where the uq doesn't cover. A full length 20* uq is a nice first uq. Great range in temp.

    Use a ccf pad until January or February, then come to a local winter hang and try some out.

    Otherwise, a full length-down-winter rated-UQ is an excellent first choice.

    +1 to what others have said. Most will fit. I'll. Also second HammockGear quilts. Their Incubator (full length) and Phoenix (3/4) are great. If you need to try and save weight and space, the Phoenix is good. Otherwise, I'd go with the Incubator. Just makes it easier (a little bit less fiddle factor) and warmer to not have to worry about using a foot pad.

    I just watched a video on You Tube about poncho liners. Has anyone tried a poncho and liner like a pod with a ccf pad?
