    Finally made a decision (I hope!)

    I am starting to make my future purchases list, and after much studying, I think i have come to the conclusion that I will be getting an HG Incubator over the JRB Washington 3. It is just barely a little bit heavier, but I can get that plus the Burrow both overstuffed for just over the price of JRB's 3-season bundle. I feel like that combo will take me a little colder, for just a miniscule addition in weight. All I have seen are stellar reviews for both companies, so I feel like either choice puts me in good hands. I am also not the hugest fan of the bright green that JRB uses for the outter shell Wish me luck on saving up money! First comes a superfly!

    Oh and if there is anything I should know about either the HG or the JRB please feel free to share!

    Really hard to make a decision, isn't it. Good luck on saving. Ramen noodles for a month or two? I don't have an incubator, but I love my Burrow TQ.
    Keep movin', keep believing and enjoy the journey!

    HG makes excellent gear.

    Yes it does cost but good gear is worth it.

    Have not regretted anything I have bought from them.

    Many vendors out there making great gear that I would like to buy but as much as I would like to, I can't afford to buy everything I want until I win the lottery

    Tell ya what, gunner, if I ever win the lottery, I will send you the insulation of your choice. Now all's I gotta do is start buying tickets! and Pat, I like that it looks like that new ARGON material is so light that I can get that as a way to offset getting an extra ounce overstuff! And this is long-term for me, unfortunately. Easily more than a couple months, especially since next month I will already be ordering a Superfly finally I have been in different threads talking about it for the last year or so, and it is finally coming to fruition!

    Cant go wrong with Hammock gear! (plus the proceeds go to an excellent cause--supporting Adam, Jenny and all their kids!)

    I have the Superfly and the incubator "0", and am very happy with both.

    Certainly this time of year it is not. A lot of places have but skeleton staff with the recent holiday.
    If it moves, you can eat it.
