I may be putting the cart before the horse here as I don't have my hammock yet. I'm just planning ahead.
For top quilts, I plan on using my current down sleeping bags zipped open as quilts.
I have about 100% decided on one of Stormcrow's Incubators for my UQ. The question is which one? The 3 season or the Summer? I'm afraid the 3 season will be too much UQ for the majority of the year. I'm also afraid the summer won't be enough UQ for hanging in late fall and early spring, and for sure not during winter.
I live in TX, and most of my hanging will be in temps well above 40 degrees, but... I can see the occasional foray out in the cold where a 20 degree sleeping bag would be necessary if I were on the ground.
Since I'm new at this game, I'd like to hear from you experienced hangers.
Do you guys hang in the summer with a UQ all the time?
Could I get away with the 40 degree UQ on colder nights if I go with more insulation in the hammock?
If not, has anyone experimented with adding another "layer" of goose down between the UQ and the hammock?
I'm thinking of something like a rectangle (size unknown right now) baffled and filled to 1" and then slid in between the UQ and the hammock. If I'm reading right, another inch of loft would get me where I need to be temp wise. Would that work with the way the Incubator attaches to the hammock without compressing out too much of the loft?
Sorry for the long post, but would love to hear what you guys (and gals) have to say. Thanks!
