    Got my shipping notice the day before yesterday. The timing is perfect, regular snow starts this Monday, yay!

    Looks like quite a push on Hammockgear's part getting these orders out... just in time to start making all those 3/4 length quilts sold during the Black Friday sale.

    Kudos to Hammockgear!

    I have a winter trip planned over my Christmas break so I was very happy to find out I would have the UQ for the trip. Can't wait to get it. Love me some gear.

    Early Christmas Gift

    Due to an approaching pre-winter storm here in southern Ontario, I was in the middle of setting up for an overnight hang on the back deck when I got an early Christmas present for my Wife. I was shocked to find a stealth black Winter Incubator in the box!

    To date most of my gear is DIY, this includes a converted sleeping bag UQ which I’ve had problems with in sub zero conditions but... a cold hang is better than no hang in my opinion and we were getting some snow…

    My family felt the situation called for an early gift giving so!!! I had a GREAT night, there was a minor cold spot in the beginning but quickly fixed that with a bit of shock cord over the ridgeline around the midsection (using the side loops in the Incubator). I under-estimated the thermal value of 5” of down and had to lose a few articles of clothing around 3am but slept comfortably after that, until I heard “Are you still alive out there” around 8:30.

    The Winter Incubator is truly a superior product, I’ve been thread injecting long enough to respect and admire the craftsmanship. With cap-in-hand, thank you Adam & Jenny! My Wife was excited to present it and I was “more so” to receive this awesome gift. This marks the beginning of an exciting winter camping season!

    I also have a trip planned right after Christmas, and I just got the notice my Incubator should be arriving before then. I hope I'll have time to field test it at home before my trip!

    That is a cool lookin' rig you got. I like the digi-camo hammock. Is that a DIY or is it a custom Blackbird?

    Thanks Mate, its DIY. I'm currently half way through TDF (textile derived fabrication) on a second one and may try ties or shockcord toggles (undecided) to match the side loops on the Incubator. Prior to the Incubator I used a matching "sleeping bag convert" UQ (also in digi-camo), went down to -16c in it but not comfortably.
