new to hammock camping i soon had to face the question of insolation and finally decided to go with down underquilts. Lightweight, less bulky, et cetera. So i purchased an incubator 40° from HG. Just a week later it was there - and that's pretty much exciting, because it's a long way down to germany. I really should be happy with it (and i know i'll do), but...
...up to now i'm trying to find the right way to attach that downy thing properly under my hammock. I've tried several setups, tighten and loosen it lengthways, the same at the ends and modified the sag (hammock). Always the same result: i'm feeling cold spots under my butt (tight) or/and air gaps under the legs (more loose). That CBS occured down to 43°F, wich was the lowest temperature these days, and and even at 65°F in the livingroom. When i hooked up the longitudinal edges of the quilt to the ridgeline and tighten it up this phenomenon disappeared, naturally. But i do not believe that this is the only way it should be. Researches on forumthreads, on youtube (watching mostly shug's videos, i must admit), blogs and random photos on the internet clearly show no additional modification in any cases. That suggests that i missed something really essential - but what?
I'm actually going to use my grizz bridge but at this moment it seems to be easier to cope with the 10'x5' gathered end hammock (diy). By the way, i'm 6'2 and the scale pretents 220 lbs.
Any suggestions are welcome! Can't wait no longer lying cosy in the woods!
