    I have the 20 degree one and once I watched Shug's video and saw what I was doing wrong the only problem I have now is that the UQ sometimes shifts under me, I reach under the hammock and pull it back into position and instant warmth

    Sweat or condensation?

    No I don't think i was too warm...at one point i did remove my outer shell pants and flannel and was down to thermals and t shirts. I was never cold cold but not as warm as i thought i should be. Having been a tent camper and remembering past excursions in this weather i remember having worn shorts and t shirt because i had been too warm. Maybe i was overdressed and therefore reduced the down bag and underquilts ability to keep me warm. Lessons learned the hard way.

    been there.. i have learned to start with less and add a jacket or a pair of socks if cold. i have an Incubator, and to me it looks like you have it too cinched.. back off and see if that helps. i too stick my hand b/t the hammock and UQ to check for air pockets. you should feel warmth coming up pretty quickly once you lay down. if you are still cold look at getting a Winter Sock from PapaSmurf- i am waiting for mine to arrive for Winter camping later this year in the Whites.

    From the pics it looks like you have the ends (at least the "neck collar" area) drawn up really tight. In my experience this creates a bad gap at the ends that there is no good cure for. For me, I try and get those "seams", if you will, between the head/foot ends of the UQ and the hammock body to be completely flush and only slightly tensioned: keeps gaps to a minimum.

    I have an incubator too, good luck!
