    2 Piece UQ - Incubator Style?

    Hi everyone,

    I've been looking at under quilts and I really like the 0* Incubator from HammockGear.com. This got me thinking: has anyone made or used a 2 piece Incubator-style UQ? It would be a 0* UQ for the under your body and a 20* or so that could be used under your legs. This setup would also allow you to use the lighter half by itself in the Summer. Does anyone do this?

    There are two options:
    JRB makes the Mt Washington two piece - identical to what you're describing - and HammockGear has made an UQ that's like the incubator accept that the loft was much larger under your core and there was less loft under your feet. Can't remember how to get the modified incubator though.

    Rook, sounds like I will have to contact Adam on this one. Maybe he can hook me up with a custom quilt.
    Shug, you're why I got into hammock camping. Thanks for the reply. Your Warbonnet Winter Yeti with Frankenquilt take you down in the low temps? Is this what you usually do in Winter?

    Might want to give them some time to recover from the holiday slam
