    Warm, Warm and Warm

    Posted by Jeff C on 1st Mar 2021

    I have the 10 Degree long incubator to use with my 10 ft hammock. I have slept down to 4 degrees and was plenty warm. I really like the adjustment straps. Once you get it fitted to you, all the remaining setups will be the same. I did have to tie knots in the cordage so the push stoppers would not slip. Packs down nice but fluffs up really nice.

    Great deal

    Posted by Michael on 23rd Feb 2021

    I used the economy incubator 0 and the economy burrow 0 on a 3-day backpacking trip in late December. Temperatures dropped below 20F in the night and they both performed excellently at keeping me warm. Using the incubator instead of two sleeping pads and a tent, I was able to drop over four pounds from my previous base weight for winter backpacking. Compared to some other more expensive quilts, this has left me completely satisfied at a fraction of the price.

    My "Go TO" !

    Posted by Matt on 22nd Jan 2021

    Hammock Gear is my
    "Go To" when I need to add a piece of insulation to my kit. They are the first I recommend to others as well. Quality, Price and Reliability are the best!

    The recipient of this Christmas gift was tickled at my purchase. There were many exclamations about the high quality of the liner, the way it was packaged and the way the thing is "wired" for hanging (I am not a camper, can you tell?). I was really amazed at its feather-weight. If I had to carry a pack on the Appalachian Trail, I would have this!

    Toasty, but not if you do not want it to be!

    Posted by Adam on 16th Dec 2020

    I have a 20 degree bag that kept me so warm, I did not even notice getting snowed on in the middle of the night. But the suspension system lets really tune in and control how much heat it holds. Its really well though out and effective. Its a remarkable price point, not at just this price point, but period.

    Hammock gear top quilt 20 deg.

    Posted by Kenneth on 2nd Dec 2020

    I bought the 20 degrees top quilt and have been so impressed with the warmth and comfort. I bought an under quilt out of desperation this year from Enlightened Equipment of 40 deg for a ton of money and I could count the feathers on 2 hands. That is why I came back to purchase an under quilt from hammock gear! I can wait for quality! Thanks guys!

    Incubator 20*

    Posted by Christopher McDaniel on 28th Nov 2020

    Recently received my 20* Incubator Custom. The order was fulfilled earlier than expected, and the shipping was fast. The build quality is excellent on this quilt which I have come to expect from my HG products. I like that it has three points of adjustment and hugs my hammock just right without compromising the loft of the down insulation. I have not tested it to its limits yet but I know that it provides instant warmth at 45*. I will be purchasing a Burrow soon to complete my quilt set.

    So far I love this underquilt, I have yet to test it in sub 20 weather but at 30 it was extremely warm. Customer service has been fantastic throughout. Thanks!
