    Differential partial underquilt

    So I've been struggling with pads in my new Warbonnet, and while I think I can make them work, an underquilt seems like a much more convenient option. However, I've realize I don't really have coldness issues on my lower legs or feet, even when the pad isn't under them, so I'm leaning towards a 3/4 or even 1/2 UQ.

    I also am a stickler for efficient design, and it seems just plain silly to use any kind of underquilt that doesn't have differential baffles. I should be able to pull the danged thing as tight as I want without compressing the insulation.

    So, does anyone make a differential cut 3/4 underquilt? Anyone who does custom sewing interested in making one for me?

    That very question has been the question of choice on the forum lately (discussed in this thread recently, among others). The first to actively market either a 1/2 or 3/4 underquilt will be busy it seems.

    To answer, right now nobody is selling them. Warbonnetguy made a few for a while, but his insulation supplier dried up. Since then it's been DIY or do without.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy
