Multicam Yetis are no longer available

The Yeti is our underquilt for end-gathered hammocks like our Blackbird, Blackbird XLC and Traveler series, but will also work on just about any end-gathered design. (It will NOT work on our Ridgerunner hammock, for that you need the Lynx)

The Yeti is a torso-length underquilt (40″ wide by 46″ long), covering roughly from shoulders to almost your knees, you’d then use a short leg pad under your legs in colder weather to achieve head to toe bottom insulation.

 There are a few benefits to breaking your bottom insulation up into two different components. First, many folks carrying a full-length underquilt still generally need to carry a short pad of some kind anyway, as you cannot throw your underquilt on the ground to sit on, so when the ground is rocky, cold, and wet you need a pad to sit on. You can slightly increase the size of this pad so it’s long enough to insulate your legs from several inches above the knee to the heels, this allows you to cut alot of the weight and bulk from your underquilt resulting in an overall weight savings of 7-8 ounces compared to a full-length underquilt plus small sit pad.  In an emergency situation you can stack the Yeti and leg pad on top of eachother (the pad would go inside the hammock under your back or between the double layers, never put a pad between the underquilt and the hammock, doing so creates a bad fit resulting in heat loss). So if the temp unexpectedly drops below the rating of your underquilt, you can stack the underquilt and leg pad together adding at least 25 deg of extra warmth to the torso, then you’d just use something make-shift under the legs like your empty pack, raingear etc. A leg pad can also be useful in a situation where you cannot find any trees and must sleep on the ground, an underquilt is no good as bottom insulation in this type of situation, but you could put your leg pad under your torso and legs on an empty pack and have adequate bottom insulation in a go-to-ground situation. 

 The Yeti features a dual differential cut 20 Denier DWR ripstop nylon shell(Durable Water Resistence), and is overstuffed with 800 fill Activ-dry DWR goose down.

Included: The Yeti comes with a stuffsac and everything needed for attachment to a Warbonnet hammock.

    I’m no gram counter,, but I do consider weight in every decision I make. As I transitioned from ground to hammock, I compared sleeping bag weight to Top Quilt – Under Quilt wights, as well as temp ratings. The Yeti is the lightest on the market. What I was not prepared for was the thoughtful design and unique characteristics of the Yeti. It is asymetrical with the left corner curved differently so that it better matches the left shoulder and “rides” better under the body, at an angle, in the hammock. This is just one example of the craftsmanship that Brandon is know for. Many questioned the 2/3rd length; however, the same hikers never really worry about long pants in the cold and wear shorts. The Yeti is the perfect length and the savings in weight is tremendous. The bottom of the quilt reaches the back of my knees and again, “Rides” extremely well. Warbonnet Comfort, workmanship, and field service are winners!

    I bought a BB, MJ tarp and Yeti underquilt.
    Just returned from a 7 day trip in the High Sierra
    having never hammock backpacked before.
    The star of the show was the Yeti underquilt
    which made my nights toasty. I’d hang the hammock
    and adjust the yeti under it, string the tarp,
    throw my down sleeping (top) quilt in along
    with other incidentals onto the shelf
    and a small piece of pad to insulate my legs,
    slip into my hammock and feel the warmth
    after a long day of hiking.

    After freezing on the July 4th weekend in my blackbird I ordered a Yeti 3 season. I’d received it just in time for my next trip and boy was I glad. Not only did I not have to worry about my pad shifting around, but it was so easy to set up and I stayed toasty warm.

    This thing is so cool! I love that it’s adjustable. I tried it for three nights this last week and it was great. While it wasn’t really cold, it worked well in the upper 40s and I’m confident it can be used at much cooler temps. It’s really amazing the difference you feel when it’s pushed aside vs when it’s under you. Plus, I like that I can control how warm I am just by moving it up higher. Worth every dime, can’t wait to use it again next week.

    I was about to give up on hammock backpacking because of the frustrations of trying to use a pad inside. I finally ordered the Yeti, and it has made all the difference. It hugs the under-side of the hammock and provides warmth while allowing me to shift my position inside. The workmanship of the quilt is excellent and the design well thought-out. The Yeti is my new best friend!!

    I am new to under/top quilts, and so far have been very impressed and happy with the Yeti and Mamba combo that I purchased. The Yeti is easy to set up, adjust, light, compact, and warm. Looking forward to many years of use with my new WB system.

    I am 5’11 and use this with my Blackbird XLC hammock. It is just the right length to cover from my shoulders down just below my torso. There is a noticeable difference in warmth with and without the Yeti underneath. Also if you get too warm you can slide it up a little to let some of the heat out.

    Simple to hang, simple to adjust, comfortable down to the freezing point.

    Got my 20 degree Yeti just in time for my trip along the Appalachian Trail (Thanks Ryan for making sure this happened!). My first surprise was when I lifted the box… I though it was empty LOL. The Yeti barely weighs anything at all!

    A couple days later I got to experience hammocking without having to use a sleeping pad for insulation for the first time and it was wonderful!

    The temps got down into the lower 20’s, to high teens and I was never cold. I didn’t have to fiddle with the sleeping pad to make sure that it wasn’t over inflated, or under inflated. I didn’t have to worry about rolling off the pad or having my arms being cold because they overlapped the edge of the pad.

    This is what hammock camping is supposed to be about.

    Thanks WB!
