The Yeti is our underquilt for end-gathered hammocks like our Blackbird, Blackbird XLC and Traveler series, but will work on just about any end-gathered design. 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 DWR ripstop nylon shell(Durable Water Resistence), and is overstuffed with 850 fill goose down.
Included: The Yeti comes with a stuffsac and everything needed for attachment to a Warbonnet hammock.

I graduated from a make-shift UQ (made from a non-down sleeping bag). I had the opportunity to use this UQ in 14C windy weather and it performed very well. My torso was so toasty warm, it made my lower legs feel colder than normal. No problem, I used a closed cell foam pad and problem was solved. I really like the size, weight, and performance of this UQ. The quality is excellent.

A hammock is not complete until you have an underquilt, and this one is amazing. Takes about 10 seconds to put on/take off, and is instantly warm. Spent three nights with high wind and rain, and was warm as toast. The first night my friend was up all night running a fire, because he was a freezing "ground dweller" while I was so warm and toasty in my hammock that it did not even occur to me that he was cold.
Buy one, it is worth it.

I am rating this as Four Stars only because I haven't had the opportunity to use it on an overnight outing yet. However, I give the craftsmanship, quality, and customer service five stars. I have tries the UQ in the backyard for a few minutes set it up and get a feel for how it works. If the UQ works all night like it did for those few minutes in the backyard, it's see ya cold bottom syndrome and even better sleeping. Thanks Brandon for another stellar product.

The craftsmanship is impecable. It lives up to all the reviews I read about it. I can't wait to try it out on an over night trip. But just throwing it on as I was testing it the day I got it, I could feel a huge difference with the quilt. I've never been more excited over a piece of new gear.

Very light and compressible but warm. It was 38* when I used it so maybe not a great test but I'm happy with it

I was a bit skeptical that a 3/4 quilt would keep me warm but a friend recommended it and I was very pleased. I use a small gossamer gear pad for my feet and I stay toasty all night. Packs down super small great for gram weenies like me.

Since I purchased my Blackbird I have been using my BA sleeping pad and to be honest I hadn't had a decent nights sleep in my hammock yet. I can contribute this to the small air leak I have in my pad that I couldn't find after submerging it in water. I would get cold butt and then I would have to wake up and blow air in the pad only to have to do it again god knows how long later. That was the last straw and I decided to fork over the $200 and fully commit to the hammock. By god that was the best decision I have ever made! Used it last night in sub 40 degree weather with wind and I wasn't cold one second! I used a vapor barrier in which I climbed inside and used my summer bag as a blanket over me and I was toasty all night (I was wearing long johns, Patagonia nano puff hoodie, and a wool long sleeve base layer, with a light foam pad from my calves to feet underneath).
Bottom line: Don't half ass this! Get an underquilt with your hammock!

My initial impression of the Yeti Under Quilt is that it's a quality piece of gear that will make an excellent addition to my Blackbird hammock for hangs when the mercury starts to dip in late fall and early spring. The quilt is constructed of high quality DWR ripstop shell and 850 fill goose down. It's apparent that true craftsman assembled the piece of kit as there is exceptional attention to detail on every feature.
I've had the Yeti out on two hangs since its purchase, where both the Blackbird and the Yeti performed well in temperatures down to 23 degrees without issue. As a recent convert from tent camping, I'm really please with their ability to keep me warm and comfortable in cold weather.
Warbonnet's service was prompt, shipping my under quilt when promised and my purchase was problem free. Prior to buying, I did a lot of research online regarding hammocks and under quilts and Warbonnet products wear always at the top of the list and highly recommended.
I'm really pleased with my recent purchase of both a Blackbird hammock and now the Yeti under quilt. They're not cheap, but you get what you pay for. For me, my money was well spent and I look forward to many years of long distance bicycle trekking and camping through Asia with my Blackbird/Yeti kit.
If you are considering purchasing a Warbonnet product, buy with confidence. Warbonnet does not disappoint.

I've been out camping a few times with my warbonnet blackbird hammock and the wind chill on my back always kept me from sleeping. The hammock is super comfortable but the wind chill will ruin the experience. I finally was able to spend the money for the underquilt and it was well worth it! I went out recently to try it out in 10 degree weather while it was snowing and it worked perfectly! My body from my knees to my head was perfectly warm. Now I just have to figure out a way to keep my feet and toes warm! I'm very happy I made this purchase. It's very lightweight and doesn't take up too much space in my pack. It really is a must have for hammock camping. I purchased the multi cam winter yeti because I like to camp in all conditions so I like to be prepared. Plus I love camo :)
