    WBBB Hamock - Hammock Gear or WB UQ?

    I have not seen a WB Lynx winter version in person. My buddy has a HG Incubator 20 with 4oz overfill.

    It brings me to 2 questions ...

    1) Is there a different type of fit between the 2? Will the Lynx full length work better with my WB or will it not even matter?

    2) I think the HG is a tad older version, but if I could trade a knife for the HG or sell knife and pick up a new Lynx? What would be the best bet as far as best overall performance?

    EDIT: Not yeti, I meant Lynx full length my bad ... fixed in post

    The yeti is 40x46.. The incubator is full length.. Big difference there.. Comes down to what you want, and supplementing with a pad or not..
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    I think the lynx will be to narrow in width as it is designed for the Ridgerunner.

    Copenhagen69, I am not clear if you have already purchased the hammock. The WBRR bridge hammock/ Lynx UQ combination is made for each other. Shug made a nice video about the WBRR and Lynx, in case you are interested.

    I did not use a Lynx as I don't have one but did put a Yeti on it.

    They have a wide range of offerings. It all depends on what you want as far as temperature rating, as well as full length versus partial length quilts. I've never been disappointed with any of their quilts and I've owned five over the course of several years.
