As I have stated I'm new to this hammock thing and am reading on this forum and testing with what I have which is pads. I have tried all my pads and could get by with them but I don't think I would be as comfortable as I would like to be. I would consider an under quilt for better comfort. I had rather find a used quilt for sale that way I don't have so much $ invested in something I've never used. With that being said most all my camping Is backpacking the A.T. so my question is should I get a 3/4 length quilt or a full length. I know the 3/4 would save a little weight and I could carry a short ccf pad in case I slept in a shelter. For you that have tried both size quilts in backpacking what's your opinion on this.
