    MW3 and Incubator

    This is not about which one is better, I know they are all excellent.

    1) Am I right to assume that the rectangular shape of the Mt Washington would make it a little more suitable if I wanted to use it as a "comforter" when tent camping or at the cottage?

    2) Is the incubator a little easier to use with a WBB because of it's "unique leg shelf design" ?

    I have both. If you want to use it as a blanket the MW3 would be better. Although a HG Burrow makes a really nice blanket.

    Regarding the blackbird either one will work just fine.

    They are both very good products for sure.
    Here is a UQ video I did that may give you some insight to Blackbirds and UQs.

    Here is a pic of my WBBB with the 20 deg Incubator. I am pleased with the fit. I do use a small piece of shock cord to "lift" the UQ just below my butt. I simply throw it over the hammock ridgeline and connect it to the pre-sewn in loops on the Incubator. Warm & Toasty....Greg

    When you use the incubator with your BB do you tie out the wings for the bug netting?

    Received my incubator 20 (1 oz overfill) 2 days ago. It's beautiful and so light!. I'm playing with it inside (I can't wait to try it outside). I found the shock cord too short for my WBBB so I've added some to make it longer... maybe I'm doing something wrong because the instructions say it should be too long and one may need to shorten it.

    It needs to stretch tight to snug it up against your buttocks and back. Don't be afraid to tighten it up))))))

    Oh yes, I played your video half a dozen times (maybe more). I'm looking to find the right balance between snug and minimum tension so I don't feel the bungee cords.

    That video is great! (so are all the others you have made)
