    wow..all i can say is awesomeness !!!!

    i originally bought a WB DL T so i could use the pocket for insulation and as a means for what i thought to save money, cos lets face it UQ`s are`nt cheap, and kinda what i thought to be a luxurious item. i have played around with foam pads, sleeping bags mods, car windshield insulation and even space blankets as a means of providing me with protection from the underlying cold. i have to say that it has been quite a learning curve for me and dont get me wrong each had its pro`s and con`s but i never got it quite right, after all the time and money i spent there was always something annoying me with theses set ups and in trying to make them work..so i checked around and saved up and ordered a 0 deg incubator have to tell ya best money i have spent .this UQ is quality man... i was a bit worried at first cause the stuff sack was so small and was thinking this is too thin to work but after 20 min it expanded out alot, i hooked it up,and was a bit confused at first think i got the new suspension type but i got it adjusted and sorted out..and it holds well along the sides with the s clips in the ends of shock cord and the horseshoe u clips sewn in along the sides are really great, shinch cord is easy to reach and adjust from inside the hammock and when i got in the hammock i could feel the warmth literary strait away and its 5 deg c here!!! have to say a big thank you to Adam and Jenny for this awesomeness and for anyone considering winter hammocking save up and get one you wont regret it !!!!

    That's good to know. I am going to buy Travelers for my kids, and I was going to put pads in them. Maybe I'll just go straight to the under quilt.

    Not sure I understand the over stuff. Doesn't it compress the down more? The baffles should be designed for a certain amount of down, more down, less air space and loft, less insulation?...where did I go wrong?

    Form what Adam told me is that it will loft thicker and will migrate less with more down. The amount they put in will do the job, but the extra helps hold everything in place and loft stay lofted out better. That's my story and I'm stickin to it

    Yup. I gotta have at least a little extra. +2 in my 40 and +1 in my 20. Better loft, better distribution and just feels so much nicer!
