    Synthetic underquilt recommendations please.

    I'm looking for a full length synthetic underquilt for 3+ seasons, so far this is the best I can find http://www.ddhammocks.com/products/underblankets.

    Looking for synthetic as I dont have much room to be able to hang a down uq for storage and synthetic should be ok loosely rolled.

    +1 on Arrowhead. I had 2 of Paul's UQs. I used them on a HH and a WBBB. Good stuff. When I was camping a few weeks ago and woke up in a heavy fog with wet everything including my down quilts, I wished I have kept them.

    Good luck on your decision.

    Shamu from macentyre is good to 40* for me personally... I like it, and would recommend it for your perusal...

    I have the one you post. Good value for money I think. It was my first, and so far only uq I've used, and thought it worked just fine.

    Tbh unless you want to diy, the snugpak, unfortunately is the easiest option for us poor guys here in the UK, it's relatively inexpensive, and will do the job, some folk have said they were warm at -12șc.

    I have one and it's ok, it's cut in a weird shape, not differentially cut and doesn't cinch at the ends to keep out cold air but after a lot of fiddling, I was VERY warm at 0șc with my sp chrysalis bag on top.

    Have heard only good things about ahe quilts, the only thing that puts me off is import duty!

    Only other thing I can think of to consider would be buying the materials and having a seamstress make you one?

    Hope this helps!

    Many thanks for a few more options. We seem to be very limited in the UK for hammocks and accesories, only UK based sites I can find are DD hammocks and UK hammocks both are excellent suppliers but there arent many quilt options available.

    May look to import one or go for the snugpak/dd underquilt as Ive heard good things about it and at least I wont get hit with import duty, got a while to think it over.

    I second this. Just bought 3 Jarbridge UQs and they have been terrific!

    My top quilts (prodigy(x) were suggested above, I just released a line of synthetic UQ too. My new site is currently located at enlightenedequipment.com/Wordpress until I remove the old one this weekend. For lack of better name they are just Prodigy(X)UQ
