    If you order a 20 Incubator with 2 ounces overfill and add a note that you would like a 10 Incubator, they'll do it. No extra charge. Just don't forget the note.

    I finished the 1.6oz HyperD (normal width) double layer hammock and spent the night in it. As was to be expected, it's very firm, but still very similar to my 1.0oz HyperD double layer hammock. I...

    I'll add this: more down means that it doesn't move around as much. It prevents that some spots are almost empty, while the down builds up in another area.
