    I am sure whatever you buy you will find to be the best. I do not think I have ever read a thread in which a person has complained about their newly purchased UQ from any of our cottage vendors.

    I own a WB BB and use a HG 0* Incubator (because it is the best!)

    Cheers

    I own a WBBB XLC and had UGQ make me a 0* Zeppelin at 83" long. It's as good a piece if gear as any thing I have and it fits perfectly. I haven't had any problems with down leaking but then again I don't have experience with other brands.

    HG incubator for me too. Fits great. The great thing for me is each corner is individually adjustable so its easy to set up for the footbox. I have it longer on the footbox side at the foot end and back off the left side where i dint need the coverage. Similar at the head end with it longer on the side i lay my head. Never leaked down at all

    I have used a full-length, 40 degree UGQ Zepellin since July 2012. It has worked very well no matter which gathered end hammock I use. I has worked very well with my B-bird. I use it on my homemade hammocks and have considered using it on my Ridgerunner. Mine has 1 oz overfill. I have used it comfortably down to 48 degrees
    I expect you can't go wrong with any of the vendor's full-length quilts on you B-bird.

    Ok. I did more research, and the zeppelin also has secondary suspension along with Draft collars. Now to decide.....

    I have a Phoenix and Incubator, both 20 degree. I like the Phoenix better. If it is really cold, I double them up.

    Is it worth buying the goose-down incubator over the duck-down zeppelin? I'm not an gram-weenie, and it would be nice to save a couple bucks. However, it looks like the majority of HF'ers like the incubator more. Im leaning towards the incubator now.

    Do you backpack with it? If so, then yes, I'd say it's worth it if you're on the fence. As others have said, both are excellent products. Can't go wrong with either. But if you want a factor to decide, go with the lighter one. If weight isn't an issue, go with the less expensive zeppelin.

    I have a non-argon 20* Incubator and love it on my BB XLC. No down leakage whatsoever. Just lots and lots of warmth.
