    Incubator with draft collars

    Did I read somewhere that the new UQs have draft collars or am I wrong? I checked the web site and didn't see anything about it.

    +1 On that. Draft collars seem to be standard for now. At least on the full length quilts.

    Cheers

    Yep draft collars on Hammock Gear quilts. I know Stormcrow is adding them to his 0 and 20 rated UQ's both the Phoenix and Incubator however I am not sure if he is adding them on the 40 rated UQ. Having owned an incubator with and without draft collars and a poenix with and without draft collars IMHO I am a big fan of draft collars on those two rated quilts. In the summer however I don't see draft comllars as being as important in the summer heat.

    Yep. I asked just that question yesterday. Jenny replied, "The draft collars are now standard with all underquilts. You will receive an Incubator with those included."
    That is all I needed. Green Inc20 +2oz to arrive shortly!
    OOOOOOO, I can't wait to snug into that downy goodness.

    I may email HG and see if adding draft collars is something they could do. I got an incubator last year that is wonderful as is, but I could see collars helping. Or maybe they will see this post

    I was thinking the same, I must have gotten mine just before they started adding the collars.
