    This sure gives me some encouragement. My three nights this weekend will be 29F, then 19, then 9. That will be a great Incubator test all in one trip! The 9 is a bit concerning, so the pad will come along, condensation or not.

    Thanks for the thermometer tip. I bought a similar one at Home Depot years ago and it doesn't even work in my freezer - just gives an error. I'll try this one out.

    My wife thinks I should get the bad friend award for taking him!!! Hahaha. He is a veteran camper so he had the right gear. He said sleeping in the hammock was a HUGE plus. Not an achy and sore body in the morning

    Oh man...leave the pad home!!! 9* is well inside the capacity of the incubator. Make sure you give it a gooooood go before your throw the pad in. I think you will be very surprised at the potential that UQ has. What are you using for your TQ?

    Well I should mention it's a 20 Incubator so I'll be pushing it. I've had it down to about 24 with no problems. Had my 40 down to 31 so I'm confident with the HG ratings being conservative.

    I usually take a pad (cut up mylar windshield shade) anyway for standing on while changing, stove windscreen, and for sitting. As for sleeping, I never start with the pad inside. I just keep it under my hammock and throw it in if I wake up cold in the middle of the night.

    Worst case scenario I get cold that last night and start up a huge fire. Not a complete loss since I'm a total pyro Sorry for the bit of hijacking.

    Edit: Forgot to answer - I use a Marmot Pinnacle (15) at temps this low. One of my favorite pieces of gear!
