Any true stomach sleepers out there?
Thanks so much for taking the time to post this and to take the detailed pictures. I have an incubator for my Blackbird and needed to know if it would transfer over for use on a RidgeRunner I just pulled the trigger on.

Thanks Miguel for starting this post with the excellent instructional pictures and text. I've been on the fence regarding the purchase of the Ridge Runner due to possible compatibility issues with my current under quilts from Hammock Gear. Adam at HG confirmed compatability.
I placed my order with Brandon yesterday for the RR, Spindrift and Cloudburst. I'm looking forward to very restful/warm nights in my first bridge.

I've been experimenting with an incubator on an RR, but not having the same luck as Miguel. No matter how tightly I attach the sides of the incubator, the bottom does not snug up against the RR, there is a gap of at least 3" in the deep part of the quilt. I tried it again last night and it got down to 18* and with a 0* incubator, I should have been quite warm. My feet we're, but not my back.
Does anyone else have this issue or know how to resolve it?

I've used the HG Phoenix with the Ridge Runner with no problems. I haven't tried it with my Incubator yet. Hopefully, within the next two weeks, I will give it a try and respond back to this post with my experience.
I believe Adam at HG is working on a UQ designed specifically for the RR.
Thanks for that....Been wondering if I would be able to use my Incubator with my WBRR.
I had an deep winter incubator and no matter how tightly I cinched it down I just couldn't get a good seal. I ended up selling one of my deep winter ones and went with a deep winter lynx. Very simple to attach and no fiddle factor.
Since writing that I have replaced the foam packing with some vinyl hose split lenthwise and about 3 inches long on each end. I have slept out with the temps in the 20's and been warm all night. When I am in the hammock the HG Incubator does come up over the sides of the RR and my saddle bags drop inside the UQ. Also the way I have rigged the 2QZQ gathered end UQP, it also comes up the sides, over the bug net and leaves about 10 inches on either side of the ridgeline of the bugnet open. I don't think that helps much with heat retention but does add some weather protection.
