    You really should at least give winter hammocking a shot. I always kinda liked winter camping but hammocking really made me like it a lot more.

    I have the 0 incubator. Surprisingly, it's not much larger than my custom 30 incubator when packed.

    I've used the zero in temperatures as low as the teens and I was comfortable. Your biggest enemy will be wind. I highly recommend using a hammock sock or an underquilt protector to keep the wind from robbing your heat.

    I agree, the 0* fits well inside my ULA Circuit, no packing problems whatsoever. Does anyone use a compression sack for their underquilts?
    What that means is something happened...

    I'm very wary of using compression sacks on my down goods. I'm afraid that they will be damaged (I don't know if there is any scientific evidence to support this). IMHO They pack down small enough in standard stuff sacks.

    I put both UQ and TQ into one Granite Gear sil-nylon compression sack in the bottom of the pack, compressed to the width of my ULA Circuit. All the gear that goes in on top serves to compress it even more.

    As long as you don't leave it packed that way long term, I don't think there is any harm. When I get back from a trip I fluff it out and store it loose in a bigger bag.

    I agree that separate stuff sacks are a pain in the *. But the primary reason I ditched them in favor of a sil compression sack was for wet weather protection. This way, all my down is better protected,....and all in one tidy place.
