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 30 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 paired the standard length 20 degree Yeti with the WBBB XLC 1.1 double for a fall 5 day hike in the Bitteroots with temps down to the low 40's at night. Overall quality was top notch, it fit the XLC like a glove and would be quite capable of keeping me comfortable well below 20 degrees. Setup and installation were quick and easy and positioning was not an issue with the continuous shock corded attachment line. I was able to easily move the UQ to achieve optimum positioning. I am very happy with the Yeti UQ and highly recommend it.

Got a 3-season-yeti with an extra oz of "overfill". I don't quite know how cold the lowest temps were, I slept fine all night and saw frost in the shadows still the next day at 10am, so must have been pretty cold at night.
Good product, light, very compressible.
A little more down leak of stray feathers than other quits and sleeping bags I've had before, but nothing I'm concerned about. Would have to leak 10 fluffs per week for a long time before the down started to run out.
I would buy this again without hesitation.

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!
