I may be carrying some of the girlfriend's gear as well. sigh

    The Yeti is an excellent UQ as well you would stay warm with either.
    The Yeti is a little shorter and little narrower that may or may not be an issue.

    EpicRider, try out the stock hammock for a couple nights before you start buying. Learn the knots and stock set-up, but Ifind that 2 each 1" climbing rings on each end are sure easier for re-adjustment (like on a motorcycle helmet strap).
    I keep the hammock in the snake skins and the tarp seperate. When tarp is dry they both are in the HH stuff sack. I keep the tarp seperate when it is damp - I stuff it in a small nylon web bag - the kind that oranges or kids toys come it. You can just cut a small hole in a corner of the web bag and you have a breathable Bishop bag for your wet tarp.
    Sounds like you have decided on the quilts.
    Using a Bike, you are more interested in size than shaving off a few grams of weight, so only add what you need (this will help save more room for the girfriend's stuff:>).
    To shave off pounds - have the GF carry your stuff:>).
    Enjoying the simple things in life.
