    A Question On Incubator Width

    Hey gang. I recently received my 20* Incubator with 3oz over stuff. I set it up wit my eno even though it will primarily be used with my Wbbb. The question I have is how high should the UQ come up around my shoulders? It felt like it could cover one shoulder well but not the other at the same time. Any thoughts? Is this just how they cover and I need a ccp around my shoulders?

    Its one sexy piece of gear though!

    depends on how wide you are. I'm pretty average, 'bout 6' 180 and they come up past both shoulders if I'm down the middle of my ENO. On the angle they still cover both shoulders just not as far up.

    May you be pushing the suspension down on the foot end inadvertantly? I've had that issue before, simple adjustment and I don't have it anymore.

    I'm 6'1" an 275. I guess you could say I have fairly broad shoulders. I fooled around with it for about an hour in 9* temps so maybe I just need some more time playing with it. Also I hear that the foot end is narrower that the shoulder end and it's possible I had it on backwards. Where does the HG patch go in relation to your body?

    not sure, I'd have to look at mine. When you attatch it to your hammock you'll notice one side will look like is sags lower than the other, almost like one side has a shelf. It does, for you legs.

    It's definitely more difficult fiddling in the cold. That's how I tweaked mine, sink or swim baby. Would've saved myself some aggrivation doing it at home though.

    The end with the knot in the shock cord should be the head. You will probably need to tighten the suspension by pulling another 12" or more of the cord and tying a new knot. This will pull the sides as high as possible

    On my 20 degree Incubator the name patch is on the the end near where the head goes. When you "fluff it up" a little you should see a difference in the amount of fill on the quilt fairly easily. With the lighter amount of loft in the lower half where your legs should be. I had to get someone with more experience than I to help me finally get the quilt dialed in. Good luck and I hope it all works out for you.

    Mine come up around my shoulders in my ENO double. I'm a 48 in a suit.

    I talked to Adam about your question last month. The name patch should be on your left shoulder (I saw a YouTube & someone had it on the right shoulder - I couldn't figure that one out, unless they had it inside out!).

    Another way to tell, is to put the UQ flat on the floor. You'll notice that it's kind of the shape of an old pine coffin lid - i.e. goes from the head wide to the shoulders, then gradually tapers to the feet.

    Another point is that Adam makes them with a "3-dimensional cut". Huh? Look at the baffles on the bottom. You'll notice that they're wider baffles where your torso goes - a deeper curve for your spine, then it goes to thinner baffles for your legs, kind of like a shelf. The easiest way to see this is to look at one from the side. Check out this video at 1:33: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aNZ2d...eature=related

    As far as coming up around your shoulders - tie off a square knot above the first one on the bungee about 3" up to make it snug up more...

    I did this last week and kept thinking it must have been caught somehow. After several minutes I got up and realized my mistake. Sometimes it's good to not have a camera rolling.

    Thanks for the replys. I'm 99% sure I had it positioned correctly then if the logo and knotted end go towards the head. It seemed snug enough up against me and when i pulled one side up the opposite side came down.

    Once my hanging spot gets cleaned up (garage) I'll give it another go. Maybe I'll get the wife to lay in it while I make adjustments.
