    underquilt advice for a WBBB XLC

    Hey, what's your all's opinion for a good full length 20 degree UQ for an XLC?? I was wondering if the extra length of the XLC messes up the UQ suspension. I'm 6'6"and would be open to using a 3/4 length and wearing long wool socks to keep my lower legswarm if if you think it would be a better option. Also been looking at the undergroung quilts Zeppelin because its rated to fit 6'5". Any advise? Thanks for the help!!

    I have used my KAQ New River on my regular WBBB without a problem, it is full length and a long version. Happen to have it for sale in the "For Sale" section if you are interested. I am downsizing to a 3/4 length to save a little weight, but the KAQ is a very nice quilt.

    I use my Hammock Gear Incubator (long) and I absolutely love it. I was only cold one night for about an hour, but I made an adjustment to the quilt suspension (tightened one side and loosened another) and it worked great for the next 7 nights. I'm 6'3" and the full length kept me toasty from neck to heels.

    I have "Long" versions of the Hammock Gear Incubator, the Underground Quilts Zeppelin, and the Kick *** Quilts New River and all work perfectly with my XLC.

    Take it easy,
