    Love it and Hate it !

    Well after waiting a couple weeks it showed today, my 20 under quilt. I looked over the website thoroughly and decided on a brown exterior because naturally that would look good with the black or dark brown interior as shown in every photo on the website, having no color choices for the interior on the order menu one would think they came black or dark brown inside, perfect because that will match every other piece of gear I just ordered including my hammock.

    Opened the box and the first thing I see is my least favorite color in the whole world forest green interior also the brown is nothing like the pictures on the website and is a richer fruity brown not the subdued earthtone shown in the photos.

    Gonna probably miss my trip now but don't want to use it and will have to re order another one and figure out this color issue.

    Have you talked to the people at HG yet? I've seen another review where the UQ was a little shorter than expected, and they generously let him use it until they sent him a new one.

    I would suggest picking up your phone and calling.

    I agree with the colours though - it's unfortunate that ARGON comes in some of the less appealing tones (I think the grey is much nicer).

    When you contacted HG and explained the issue, what was their response?
    I've gone to find myself. If I get back before I return, make sure I stay here.


    When I see lovers' names carved into a tree, I don't think it's cute. I think it's strange how so many people take knives on a date.

    Only had it for about an hour spent 45 minutes thinking about it and then decided no way I could use it that color it would bug me forever not matching my other stuff, Left a message for HG. More interested if anyone else had this green color sent to them as an interior or about the huge color difference from the web pictures on the brown color. Is the other brown pictured a different material if so I will get that. that brown and green color look of walmart sleeping bags to me and I can't deal with that

    Thought maybe if someone was looking, maybe they want just that color combo I would just sell it and order another problem fixed. I know as soon as I touched it I felt heat coming off amazing stuff.

    I didn't order forest green I hate forest green . That's the problem I didn't see where there were any interior color choices on the incubator 20.
    Not a huge deal was just checking to see if anyone needed one before having to send it back , I know the cottage guys work hard for their money. It appears to be a moot point as HG is already on the ball! Great CS.

    Maybe a heads up to everyone going to order, throw a note in the comments section with interior color you like or dislike, didn't even think to do that as I Assumed it came as photographed
    Maybe I will throw that cuben on the order as well now!

    I've attached a photo of my Dutch ultralight argon colour swatches. The light grey is not ripstop, so it probably shouldn't be used for a quilt. The dark grey and black are both really nice colours. I believe HG uses the same colour swatches for their quilts (but I could be mistaken).

    Thanks for the pics Bushwhacker, the Black would definitely work in there somewhere, I am wondering what the fabric on HG website is, if you look at the incubator 20 close up, it is the perfect brown and isn't shiny like the material in your picture, appears to be something else.

    I think OP is just as confused as you (if not more).
