    6'5 wondering about the incubator

    I have a WBBB 1.7 DBL and I'm wondering about coverage since my mommy grew a tall one....

    So, other tall ones - with WBBB's and incubators, should I be concerned at all?

    stretch that Incubator...

    Autolox,

    Don't forget, we get requests to stretch Incubators all the time. No problem at all. Our tallest so far was for a 6'7" guy. Tall people need hammocks too!

    Yeah, when I saw your Crowsnest/Phoenix I thought it was about long enough to be an incubator for me.

    Dem Hammock Gear androids make fine stuff and my experience with a custom Burrow was a breeze. When the Warden gives permission, I intend to have a custom Incubator that is wider plus with an oz or two extra down...Adam and Jen will come through for you with flying colors no doubt. Just a point of curiosity for you tall types; How does the WBBB feel lengthwise? Does it have enough room or would more be better? Might be a hammock market for us big and tall types out there.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    I'm QUITE pleased with mine - fits nicely, still roomy. I FINALLY did my first all night hang the other night with a NeoAir in tow - Everything went well even when the rain started....We were at a campground with our converted van so in the midst of 'hammocktunity' I had a 'bailtunity' in case things didn't work out. I did wake up eventually to the pad moving and causing some CBS...

    SO!!! I'm thinkin' it might be UQ time here......

    Thanks to all of you here for the knowledge shared!!

    I read of many having a great experience in working with you guys, how do we "start the process" to get one stretched a couple of inches to insure good cover?

    I use a 24" wide WallyWorld blue pad and it is wide enough that the shifting in my BB dbl is minimal. CBS is not fun

    Having many custom orders from Stormcrow. All ya gotta do is drop them an email or give them a call. Their really easy to work with and are very willing to custom tailor quilts to ones needs. Having several hammockgear.com quilts I can promise you ur getting a top notch piece of gear that will keep ya warm and cozy.
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
