    Why I'm getting a full UQ

    Last night I decided to camp out in the front yard. I used a themarest under me and a REI Travel down as a speerpod going all the way around my hammock.
    It was ok, and but even 65 degrees I was cold underneath, and fidgeting around gave me more cold spots. It was very annoying. Anytime I was warm, I wasn't comfortable and moved around, got cold.

    This is why I'm excited for a my full sized Incubator from Hammock Gear. no more cold spots, no more wrestling pads. For me its worth the extra weight. I am so comfortable in a hammock napping during the day, but have never had a great nights sleep in one.

    It was funny trying to explain to my coworkers about UQ.

    You will not be sorry...pads stink IMO. One question though, Arrowhead or Hammock Gear (you ARE excited!)?

    I agree... Full uq. I tried my wbbb with a thermarest yesterday and it was terrible. Always a cold spot somewhere. So I whipped up a poncho liner underquilt in a hurry. I left the thermarest in the hammock, and used a down sleeping bag as a tq. I was almost too warm . I have a tq and uq on order with hammock ger, but I'm afraid they may not arrive before I leave on my July road trip, hence the experimenting with what I have.

    i also like the idea of a full length UQ better
    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    I find my pad works fine in my double layer Black Bird but not in my single layer hammocks like a ENO DN.

    I will agree with others that a UQ is more comfortable than a pad and I am lookiing at getting full lenght down UQ for next winter. Just have to save my pennies.

    Me too. Not much extra weight and great to be completely surrounded in warm goodness

    You will be very happy! I have never given being cold a second thought since I started hangin with my Incubator. Even on warm nights I still put it on and just leave the ends looser to vent.
