Question about weight
Just looking at the chart for the incubator. I've got a 40* incubator, but find it a bit cold for the shoulder season, so I'm pondering buying a thicker quilt, but I'm a bit confused...
The 40* F model weighs 19 oz.
The 20* F model weighs 22.5 oz.
The 40* F model has 7 oz. of down.
The 20* F model has 12 oz of down.
How is this possible? If the 20*F has 5 oz more down, shouldn't it weigh 5 oz. more? Am I missing something or is it a typo?
Math was never my strong suit and I can't sew to save my life, but I'd expect the 20* model would weigh in at 24 oz.at least...
Great catch Sturgeon,
I will update the site later on today. The discrepancy is most likely due to some of the changes in construction I have made over the last few months. I have been doing as much as possible to lighten things back up after I added the weight of the draft collars. Of course, all of these changes have altered some of the finished weights a bit. I will report back to this thread, and update the site, when I get some new numbers.

Anyone able to actually weigh a new 3S incubator ??
I'm confused between the weights also and the website doesn't appear to be updated yet.
I just had my 20* Incubator returned to me a few days ago after having the draft collar/suspension upgrade,(with a one day turnaround time I might add!!) it now weighs 27oz. In stuffsack. The quilts made with these upgrades originally may not be the same.
