    Glad to hear that you are pleased!

    Earlier this year I received a 3S-3/4 length Crowsnest from StormCrow and was equally pleased. After years of futzing with sleeping bags and pads inside my hammocks it was a revelation to simply clip on an UQ and feel the warmth!

    I was suitably impressed with Hammock Gear's quality that I ordered a 3S Burrow as well. Planning on test-hanging it this weekend (so far all I can say is that it works great on my bed). Hope you get a chance to hang as well!

    I read all these rave reviews and know ordering an incubator was a good move. Meanwhile I'm drooling on the keyboard while waiting for the new "toy" to arrive. oooh!

    [QUOTE=Wakozacho;371355]At long last, my winter Incubator arrived! This is the first and only uq I have ever used or even seen in person, and I have to say, I was caught off guard at first. Upon removing the uq from its stuff sack, I was certain that I had been sent a summer version my mistake. There was simple no way something that light and that flatly compressed would loft up to 4".

    Ditto. I got my 3 Season Incubator & Burrow today and had the same reaction. No way, this stuff is way too light to be 3 Season. After a shake and a few minutes ....... Poof-o-rama. Sweet. I cinched up the Burrow, snuggled in, snapped the top around my shoulders......Ahhhhhhh. Down heaven.

    My Winter Incubator arrived several weeks ago and man I do love it! I've had it down to 8 degrees Fahrenheit and I was toasty warm the whole night through with the added assistance of my new MollyMac Sock with SEEP and IX.

    I have noticed one issue with the Incubator. It fits my ENO SN like a dream; however, I have had issues with it on my new WBBB. It does technically fit the Blackbird, but it doesn't fit it very well in my opinion. Since it connects to the hammock directly in line with the ridgeline, the more diagonal I lie (further off axis), the more problems I have with it not quite reaching my sides. It still covers my back no matter how I lie, but I do develop cold spots on my left shoulder and right foot with a strong diagonal lie. As I am only about 5'9", I don't believe this problem is caused by my height. It is very possible that there is some trick for attaching the Incubator that would correct this. I am a noob after all and am even more of a noob with the Incubator/Blackbird combo. Are there any other hangers out there that have this equipment combo and have any knowledge to share regarding the proper attachment techniques?

    Another thought I had was to sell my Winter Incubator and get Stormcrow to custom build me another one 2-4" wider. I think a wider Incubator would better reach up around my sides when I lie off axis, but I am not completely sure about that, and I hesitate to make a custom order before I know for a fact that I would benefit from it. A wider Incubator would carry a whole host of complications with it in addition to the potential benefits. I'm not sure if it would still fit in the same stuff sacks; however, space in the pack isn't as much a concern for me as coverage in the hammock is.

    Hi there WackoZacho

    I have a few ideas I want to talk with you about regarding your fit issues. I am sure it is something we can figure out. I sent a PM for you to give me a call so we do some troubleshooting. I will be sure to let the thread know what we came up with in case there are others with the same issues he is having. Thanks everyone.

    How funny, I sent Stormcrow a PM last night regarding this same concern (mine is not purchased, but will be)

    I'll be "subscribing" with interest.

    So how was this resolved? I'm going to use this quilt with my Traveler. However, if I decided to get a 3 season Incubator I would use it with my Blackbird.
