    I would be inclined to disagree, a pressurized alky might need some extra care but a wick style works very well and is my go to in cold weather.

I have played around with my ASRL thinking my sag was the issue and still no luck. I'm 6'2'' and 210lbs. Any tips would be appreciated. And yes I started with 83% like most suggested the sweet spot to be and my height just won't allow it.

    I didn't realize the Incubator had a "head " end and a "foot" end! How do you determine which is which?

    Doesn't the incubator have the leg shelf, if so the headend has larger baffles (puffier) than the foot end.

    The HG tag goes to the head end.

    HH is right....the head end is puffier
    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong

    I've felt it a bit (hammock bunched under me) and it was always when I had my whoopies too tight. My hammock needs to hang a bit looser. I finally got my ridgeline set and that helps me keep the hammock just loose enough so I don't get that weird feeling and pressure on my knees and calves.
    The beauty of sunsets,
    The wind in the pines,
    The mountains give these and more...
    Peace of mind.
