    And know of anyone that needs another WBBB since my gf tried mine, loved it, and then didn't like her exact same model?
    I said I would try it (stomach sleeping) and I did. Definitely not for me but your mileage may vary. This thing was made for back sleeping although I have tried it on my side and found it quite comfortable.

    Not for you because you don't sleep well on your stomach or because you don't feel like it is really possible to be comfortable and sleep on your stomach?

    Good question. I am not typically a stomach sleeper in any situation. When I do lay on my stomach I like my arms bent out to the side along side my head. There is simply not enough room for that in the Ridgerunner or any other hammock in my opinion. I think the only way would be to have your arms straight along side your body. There is no way I could sleep like that. I couldn't even get comfortable, let alone fall asleep. Of course your mileage may vary.

    Any true stomach sleepers out there?

    Thanks so much for taking the time to post this and to take the detailed pictures. I have an incubator for my Blackbird and needed to know if it would transfer over for use on a RidgeRunner I just pulled the trigger on.

    Thanks Miguel for starting this post with the excellent instructional pictures and text. I've been on the fence regarding the purchase of the Ridge Runner due to possible compatibility issues with my current under quilts from Hammock Gear. Adam at HG confirmed compatability.

    I placed my order with Brandon yesterday for the RR, Spindrift and Cloudburst. I'm looking forward to very restful/warm nights in my first bridge.

    I've been experimenting with an incubator on an RR, but not having the same luck as Miguel. No matter how tightly I attach the sides of the incubator, the bottom does not snug up against the RR, there is a gap of at least 3" in the deep part of the quilt. I tried it again last night and it got down to 18* and with a 0* incubator, I should have been quite warm. My feet we're, but not my back.

    Does anyone else have this issue or know how to resolve it?

    I've used the HG Phoenix with the Ridge Runner with no problems. I haven't tried it with my Incubator yet. Hopefully, within the next two weeks, I will give it a try and respond back to this post with my experience.

    I believe Adam at HG is working on a UQ designed specifically for the RR.

    I had an deep winter incubator and no matter how tightly I cinched it down I just couldn't get a good seal. I ended up selling one of my deep winter ones and went with a deep winter lynx. Very simple to attach and no fiddle factor.

    I did mine a little differently and posted some pics and a description in another thread here:https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...42#post1209442

    Since writing that I have replaced the foam packing with some vinyl hose split lenthwise and about 3 inches long on each end. I have slept out with the temps in the 20's and been warm all night. When I am in the hammock the HG Incubator does come up over the sides of the RR and my saddle bags drop inside the UQ. Also the way I have rigged the 2QZQ gathered end UQP, it also comes up the sides, over the bug net and leaves about 10 inches on either side of the ridgeline of the bugnet open. I don't think that helps much with heat retention but does add some weather protection.
