Hammock Gear Under Quilts

Goose down under quilts have proven to be, without question, the preferred choice for insulating the underside of the hammock. Due to super light weight, compressibility and versatility, they outshine the alternatives by a landslide. Their thermal efficiency has allowed brave campers to push the boundaries of cold weather hammocking. Virtually every hammock camper has experienced - through his or her learning curve, the dreaded CBS, or "Cold Butt Syndrome". And virtually every owner of an under quilt has effectively learned how to avoid it. Once you have experienced a down under quilt, you will "never go back".

Hammock Gear provides a full-length under quilt - the Incubator, and a 3/4-length under quilt - the Phoenix. They are known by many to be the most effective on the market today. One of the primary reasons is this: the Incubator and Phoenix are the only commercial under quilts designed with a contour which mimics the shape a person makes when they are laying in a hammock. One of the added benefits of this construction technique is that it leaves a "flap" of fabric along the top and bottom of every down filled chamber. This extra fabric acts as a "floating baffle" which stabilizes the down and helps prevent its shifting. Another reason our UQ's are popular is this: they contain the ideal amount of down Stability - the down stays put when it should, but the design allows for enough manual shifting of down when necessary.

 

About the Incubator 20˚

The ULTIMATE underquilt for guaranteed comfort... The Standard length Incubator 20° is long enough to generously cover most hammock campers up to about 6’ 2”.  With 850 fill power, water resistant goose down, this underquilt will protect you in temperatures down to 20°. If you are looking for an underquilt that is hassle free and will allow you to enjoy your hammock for more months of the year, you have found it.

The Incubator comes with 9 anatomically contoured, differential cut baffles that run the length of the quilt. One of the things this construction technique does is to greatly reduce the shifting of goose down that is sometimes more noticeable in quilts made with premium goose down.  This is one of the reasons Hammock Gear quilts are always 15-20% overstuffed. The differential cut, contoured baffles also provide the highest level of fit which is critical to keeping warm.  
The Incubator comes complete with our state of the art shock-cord suspension system and a stuff sack.

Fabric

All Hammock Gear quilts are made of ARGON fabric. All ARGON fabric is specifically designed ripstop nylon which is manufactured for Hammock Gear. We offer both 10 and 15 denier weights with certain colors only available in one or the other. ARGON 67 (10d) weighs 0.67oz/square yard while ARGON 90 (15d) weighs 0.90 oz/square yard. It has a Durable Water Resistant (DWR) finish. The DWR not only improves the water resistance of ARGON , it also enhances the fabric by improving overall strength, tightening the weave and thus increasing its down-proofness. Calendaring of the fabric further enhances the down-proofness of the quilt.

  • Black - Argon 90 (15 denier +0.9 oz)
  • Charcoal Gray - Argon 90 (15 denier +0.9 oz)

  • Coyote Brown - - Argon 90 (15 denier +0.9 oz)
  • Woodland Camo - Argon 90 (15 denier +0.9 oz)



Baffles

All of our under quilts make use of baffle (also known as "box baffle") construction. This means that the seams between the down-filled chambers are not sewn through, but instead consist of a fabric wall about .75 to 3 inches tall, depending on the model.

 

Temperature Ratings

At Hammock Gear, we use temperature ratings which are very conservative. Compare them in the marketplace and you will agree. Here is a point we wish to emphasize: the first and most important step you must take when choosing an under quilt by temperature is to Know Thyself. Are you a Cold sleeper, a Warm sleeper, or maybe a Really Warm sleeper? Factor this into your selection process and you will be much better off. With under quilts, the more you experiment, the more you will dial this in.

  • High Quality

    by Sarah – 21st Jul 2015

    So happy with the Incubator 20! The quality is amazing! Every stitch is perfect. It's very light and easily packs up and sets up. I got my order quickly and was super happy with the purple color! Love it! I'm glad I emailed before ordering to get help deciding what size to get... I'm 5'4" so I got the Short and it's perfect.

  • No pads needed

    by Scott Payne – 13th Jul 2015

    I Have been using pads since I started hammocking. It is a large investment for the under quilt. I have been working on a budget and learning how to make my own equipment but the under quilt was something I was not comfortable doing. I made one attempt to make a synthetic under quilt but wasn't happy with results. I am very happy with my purchase. What a difference. Thank you for the excellent product.

  • awesome

    by Eric Mathieu – 9th Jul 2015

    What else to say?
    The service and communication are at the top. The quality of the product is perfect.
    In the 2 weeks I had mine, I did a 2 and a 3 day trip. Ordered a second one for my wife who took mine. I will not go back to a pad for anything. The comfort, the adjustability of the quilt is marvelous. I cannot thank HG enough. And the shipping time was less than 3 days after ordering. We are talking custom order now. I will order my 3rd one for my kid as soon as I can. Looking at jumping for the top quilt hopefully next year. I am converted to HG.
    Did I say I love it?

  • Non-stop satisfaction!

    by Eric Owens – 29th Jun 2015

    I bought this 20* UQ in order to extend my opportunities for using my hammock throughout the year. Previously, I was limited to use that could be called 2-season. I have not been at all disappointed.

    This purchase was made at the same time that I ordered an 40* TQ, both with an over stuff of down. This past December of 2014, I went on a weekend trip that took the temps down to 15* and both quilts did not leave me at all wanting more warmth (I did sleep in my full clothing using wool baselayer, etc.). I would not have much concern for going to 10* under the same circumstances. Even during warmer outings into the low 70's or high 60's, I have not been disappointed.

    My satisfaction with Adam's and Jenny's craftsmanship has only increased the likelihood that I will be asking for some expressly custom work in the very near future.

  • Very cool design updates!

    by Fibby – 19th Jun 2015

    I ordered this for my boyfriend based on how happy I am with mine. I am very impressed with the draft collars and double elastic suspension. Mine is an older model and I am very happy with its performance but I am a little jealous of the new mods. Can' wait to give it a real test!

  • Double Down on HG!

    by Benjamin/T-minus@hammockforums.net – 18th Jun 2015

    I ordered a 20Incubator (Dark Olive Drab/Black short) For my WBBB XLC, Top marks, exceeds all expectations and would say hands down the best piece of gear I owned until I received my 20Burrow (Multi-camo/ Burnt Orange Wide/Standard Sewn), now they both are the best gear I own. I received my orders fast, (9/6 Days Inc/Burrow) and beyond the quality I visualized from the pictures I've seen in making my selection, and I'm Super Pleased, They even matched the stuff-sack per my request. I love it. Thanks HG, you Have added warm fuzzies to my hart and to my Hang. I'm glad I double downed.

  • HG

    by Jason Hribik – 16th Jun 2015

    You can never go wrong with any HG product, fast, perfect sevice everytime. The incubator is exactly as expected, warm, light and compact.

  • Great quality

    by Unknown – 15th Jun 2015

    Looks great, packs down easily and looks warm. Can't wait to get out and try it.

  • Feeling hot, hot, hot...

    by Johan / born2roam – 15th Jun 2015

    I bought my incubator in 2013, after more then 2 years of great service, I finally took the time to write this review. First of all because I promised to leave a review, but most important of all, because the people at HG deserve big BIG complements for creating such a fine product.

    With custom (signal) orange on the inside {just in case] and black on the outside this has been the centre of attention on many a hang! It packs small, is super warm and of great quality.

    The several options of hanging and adjusting the underquilt got me confused for a bit but I quickly got the hang of it (sic) :-)

    Highly recommended! I use it all the time, unless the season calls for my Baby Orca used on its own. Which, by the way I add to the incubator if temperatures drop sufficiently.

  • Home Improvements, worth doing

    by Neil's in... – 5th Jun 2015

    Hi all, I purchased this to replace my inadequate Hennessey 4 season kit. Many cold nights suffered before biting the bullet.

    So this is my first down filled under quilt, still haven't had a chance to test it in the cold cold, my hammock is currently my home for the next 6 months and this home improvement pays for itself. Last night I was sweating in the mountains of Washington (Chinook pass).

    My word of warning to those who have not used one of these quilts before, be sure to tighten the elastics crazy tight, previous night was experiencing a midnight chilly patch due to insufficient tightness.

  • Great, so warm

    by Tom – 5th Jun 2015

    So warm and light

  • very happy with gear and service

    by todd j – 2nd Jun 2015

    very well constructed quilt shipped to me with quickness for just a little extra

    very good experience dealing with Harry and Adam
    many thanks

  • Top Notch!

    by Dan – 29th May 2015

    Excellent quality and service, what more can I say. Thank You HG!

  • nothing here to dislike

    by SP from Utah – 17th May 2015

    I was on the fence for a long time about getting an under quilt. I don't get out as often as I'd like so was avoiding dropping the coin and just using a pad. It was adequate and better than being on the ground, but fussy even with a pad in a double layer hammock. So bit the bullet and went with the Incubator, figuring that these have an excellent reputation such that potential resale wouldn't be a problem. Have had it out for several nights in the Rockies, including a night with mixed cold rain, hail and snow. Slept comfortably and warm in the 20 degree Incubator. First time setup was actually very easy with minimal tweaking. Nothing to complain about here...

  • finally no cold

    by Bill Y – 14th May 2015

    Tried all the cheap ways to keep the cold (even cool) out. Finally bit the bullet and bought this UQ. Should have years ago. Finely made, great service, great quality.
    Go ahead and buy one.

  • great

    by L.h. – 12th May 2015

    So far so good! It's definitely warm! I've only tested it out a few times but I'm about to take it on a trip to Colorado. I only wish it came with slightly clearer instructions or a video demo online since I'm still not sure if I have it set up right with the cords on the end, but I figured out something that seems to work. I also wish the blue color was a brighter blue but the color doesn't matter that much. Seems like a great quality product, I'm very happy I got it!

  • no frozen butt hang with this one.

  • review for my second Incubator Underquilt

    by Scott Turskey – 2nd May 2015

    Simply said...top notch and well done....great service....if I was going to buy another. ..it would be a product from Hammock Gear. ...just might do that soon...for my third hammock. Cannot go wrong with this company! !! Just Exceptionally done.

  • Second Incubator even better...if its possible

    by Henry Hibbs – 30th Apr 2015

    About 2 years ago, and after a lot of research, I pulled out the money I been saving up and bought a 20 degree Incubator Underquilt to use with my Warbonnett Blackbird hammock. My decision to get the full length Incubator vs. The Phoeunix was based on the weight spread and simplicity. To me the weight spread wasn't worth the hassle of taking foam padding and worrying about my lower legs. In backpacking many times in late fall, winter and early Spring in the Southern Appalachians with this UQ, I found the 20 degree rating to be very accurate. At 15 degrees I was still warm. Adam guaranteed me the rating was conservative and he was exactly right. I am a cold sleeper in the winter and a hot sleeper in the summer...but this 20 degree quilt is great for a long packing season through 3 seasons at least. I sewed Dutch quilt hooks onto my Blackbird to keep the Incubator exactly where I want it particularly on my left shoulder and feet in the foot box. It saved me a lot of tinkering on the coldest nights.
    A few weeks ago I ordered another Incubator...this time with black Argon 90 on the outside and Cinnamon brown Argon 67 on the inside. I also added 2 oz. of down overfill but Adam also altered the baffles to a 10 degree "cut. The quality on both these quilts is just extraordinary. When we arent backpacking or camping, my wife and I use these Incubators as a personal full length personal quilts. Ive had the 10 degree I cubator on a 4 day pack trip on my Blackbird XLC and I have not doubt it will take me down to the 5-10 degree range . Thank you Adam for the integrity you bring to the hammocking community. When tent campers ask me if they can give my hammock rig a try my only concern is that when they snuggle in between my HG Incubator and my Zero degree HG Burrow they may never want to get back out. Mornings in the on the trail , I hate to get out of my hammock because I feel like I'm floating in a envelope of warm down.

    Never hesitate to select Hammock Gear products ...they have always retained the best reputation because they never will do you wrong . Their gear will last a lifetime.

  • The best

    by Tim – 28th Apr 2015

    First I would like to say I'm not good at writing reviews and don't write many but after using this quilt I had to.

    Hands down the best customer service in the business spent time talking with Adam and Harry to get exactly what I needed.

    The quality of workmanship is great not a stich out of place no down leakage it's perfect.
    The best thing of all it worked as advertised kept me very warm on a cold wet (very wet ) night in the Cranberry Wilderness , the best piece of gear ive taken to the woods in a long time

    Adam, Harry I woul like to personally thank you, HG is my one stop shop for my outdoor gear. It people like you two that make my 30 years of service in the military worth it.

    Thank you Tim.

    P.S. I'll be sending more people your way.

  • Great product

    by Matthew Hermann – 28th Apr 2015

    Worked great on the AT for a week. Would recommend to a friend.

  • high quality

    by Unknown – 24th Apr 2015

    As been said before this a height quality piece of gear can't wait to try it out.

  • tremendous service, high quality

    by Unknown – 17th Apr 2015

    I originally made an order for a 30 degree quilt, but the next day I had second thoughts and asked if they could make it a 20. Not only did they change the order for me but I still got my quilt six days after I ordered. And not only that, the quilt is tremendous quality. Top of the line service, top of the line craftsmanship, and a super low price considering the quality and materials.

  • One and Done

    by Johnny B – 16th Apr 2015

    This is my first under quilt and more than likely my last. Being new to hammock camping I did an extensive search through didffernt forums, websites, YouTube channels and found nothing but praise for the Incubator. After camping two nights in the outer banks of NC, I now know why, this thing is awesome.
    Taking it out of the box I was leary because it's so lightweight and can pack so small. After allowing it to loft for a few minutes I attached to my Nylon Hammock and immediately noticed how warm this UQ was. I've only used it twice so far but can't imagine it getting worse. The nights got to a low of 52 and all I needed was a sheet over the top of me. This UQ alone was all I really needed to keep and maintain warmth.
    I like how easy it is to adjust and move/slide while laying down. No need to get out. I only attached it to my cinch buckles and have o need to secure it to my ridgeline.
    The company went above and beyond to make sure I would have this in time for an upcoming trip. I will definitely keep coming back for any other hammock camping needs I may have.
    If you are skeptical about the price... why buy something you'll regret later and end up spending more money? If hammock camping is something your into, this is a necessity.

  • loving the incubator 20

    by Unknown – 10th Apr 2015

    It have only used my incubator 20a few times as yet, but so far it is absolutely wonderful. The first time I set it up it took a while to figure out the new suspension system. After some trial and error I got the set up I needed for the way I sleep. Adjusting it while in your hammock is as easy as racking around and giving a tug here or a pull there. That first not it was 41 degrees and I was almost too hot. The next night it was low 40s again and I was very comfortable. The last two nights I spent we had some severe thunderstorms. I was a little uneasy hanging between 2 trees with all that lightning flashing around me. I was swinging in the wind but never lost the insulating comfort of the incubator. I eminence it highly. I liked it so much that I bought the burrow 20 top quilt to go with it. It arrived today in the mall. I plan on spending the night in my hammock using them both. Thunderstorms on the radar again. Wish me luck.

  • Awesome Product

    by Chris M – 6th Apr 2015

    I read a lot of reviews and did a lot of shopping. I wasn't really sure about dropping the cash on an underquilt. I took the plunge and between the Incubator 20 and my Sierra Designs down sleeping bag, I slept very comfortably all night down to 25 degrees F. I probably could have taken it down another 15 degrees and would have been just fine.

    The product is well made. The suspension works great at pulling the underquilt up underneath you with no air pockets.

    My only complaint is that it took 3 weeks to get to me. In this day of 2-day-Amazon-shipping, I have high expectations. But I understand the nature of this product and this company. I highly recommend HAMMOCK GEAR!

  • Anyone who owns a hammock should get one.

    by Greg – 5th Apr 2015

    I just finished a two week job at a remote lakeside cabin. I had to leave before the underquilt arrived. Using a closed cell foam mattress underneath me that was only 20" wide left me having quite a bit of cold spots throughout the night. I came home for a night and my new quilt showed up. I was excited to use it and let me tell you.. This thing was perfect. So easy to set up and the fit was great with my single person hammock. The last two nights I used it the temperatures dropped down into the low to mid 30's. My face was cold but it kept me warm and toasty. I was using my 15 degree sleeping bag as a top quilt but I will be purchasing a hammock gear top quilt here soon.

    If you are having trouble deciding whether or not to get one? I did and I wish I would have purchased one sooner. Great quality and easy to use. I will never sleep on the ground again if I can help it.

  • Nice and toasty!

    by Laura D. – 4th Apr 2015

    I went camping last weekend and the temperatures were between 20° and 30° and windy. Half of me was really warm - the half lying against the hammock. Unfortunately, the rest of me was cold, even with a good sleeping bag.
    The underquilt's material is very thin, it makes me think of plastic grocery bags. It appears to be able to withstand abuse, but I don't intend to test that out. What is really impressive is how easily it packs down to such a small size. I associate stuff sacks with struggling to get the last bit in, but not with the underquilt!
    I highly recommend this product.

  • Like sleeping on a warm cloud

    by Earle J – 1st Apr 2015

    I bought the incubator 20 short for my partner. Haven't given it to her yet.. Still "testing" it. She's a cold sleeper even in the warmest of nights. I think she will be very pleased with this product. Your craftsmanship is second to none. Loved the draft tubes top and bottom . Better order myself one so I can surprise my partner with this awesome fluffy warm cloud. Cheers

  • Amazingly Warm

    by Tommy (Eagle) – 30th Mar 2015

    Have used the Incubator 20 for years now, been down to 10 before and still was very comfortable. Just purchased a new one for my son to use, it was 17 this past weekend and he was so amazed at how warm he stayed. The quality is second to none!!!

  • Simply the Best of the Best!

    by Sardog1 – 14th Mar 2015

    First impressions of the Incubator 20° Long (Woodland Camo) are nothing but positive. Close inspection reveals stitch perfection, attention to detail and a well thought out design. The suspension system allows for nearly infinite adjustment with no unwanted sag. Since I just received the UQ, I can't honestly comment on performance in various temps but at first glance, I know it's going to perform well.

    Thanks to the crew at Hammock Gear for producing top notch gear and their stellar customer support for the hammock community.

  • Very Warm

    by Mattgyver – 7th Mar 2015

    This quilt is amazing, kept me way warmer than my friend in his 300 dollar ENO quilt. Temps got down to the mid 20's, with snow and freezing rain, kept warm all 3 nights! Quick delivery, and very good customer service. They were able to get it to me way before my planned trip, and at short notice. Thank you guys! I will be recommending you guys!

  • Legendary! Quality!

    by Justin Fischer – 6th Mar 2015

    This product does great in temperatures even lower than 20 degrees. Simply add a sleeping bag as a top quilt and your night with be filled with comfort. The staff is exceptional! I spoke directly with management from Georgia, very informative and kind! Ask any question and expect an answer that goes above and beyond. Thank HG for your exceptional services, allowing me to continue on adventuring!

  • Great quality, amazing service

  • First Impression

    by Tim Wicks – 16th Feb 2015

    http://youtu.be/3OvHZxuhmh8 here's a quick video i did on my first impression of the quilt.

  • What to improve on...

    by Unknown – 13th Feb 2015

    The good: stitching, baffles, fill power, customer service, speed.

    Needs improvement: Pictures, Pictures, Pictures. Underquilt Could be a little wider.

    The bad: nothing.

    This one or the competition.? For an underquilt I sligly liked this one better. I liked the profile of the quilt including the differential cut, the baffles, the lighter fabric.

  • Awesome Product

    by Michael – 7th Feb 2015

    The quality is awesome and the shipping was much quicker then I planned. Warmth of this item is exceptional. Thank you. It's nice to see American made products at a fair price with that much quality.

  • Awesome Product

    by Piratekiller – 6th Feb 2015

    Love it!!! I got my incubator a couple of weeks ago and finally got to take it out. My buddies and I went up to Newport State park in Door County, WI for the weekend. It was dark the first night when I set it up so of course being my first time with it I did it wrong and froze :( The next morning when it was light out. I noticed my problem and was able to set it up correctly. It dropped from 40 deg down to 12 that night. I was toasty warm in my hammock that night! Long story short I love this under quilt and recommend it to anyone looking at getting one. I cant wait to get back out to use it.

  • Simply the best!

    by Bryan – 5th Feb 2015

    My brother and I each got a 20 deg. incubator. They are amazing! We both researched independently and came up with this UQ. Look around and compare. These are the best, period! We've used them down to 19. Been in the 20s multiple times, and I always sleep well. I've also used as warm as the upper 50s and am still comfortable. Super well made! Is $250 a lot of money? Sure, but look at comparable sleeping bags and UQs. The Incubator is a BARGAIN given the quality. And top-notch customer service to boot. Stop reading this and order one now!!

  • Top Quality

    by Robert C. – 2nd Feb 2015

    I have not had a chance to take this into the field and have only used it once in the back yard. The temp was in the low 30’s and when I laid in the hammock I could immediately feel the warmth coming through. I was wearing a t-shirt and sweat pants and new immediately that I would be warm all night. This is a high quality piece of gear and great customer service. Jenny and her crew took the time to answer my questions and help me out with the proper selection and size. My only suggestion would be the addition of larger storage bag for the time between hikes. This piece of kit is highly recommended!

  • Incubator 20 +2oz overstuff

    by Richard – 30th Jan 2015

    After reviewing different styles and types of underquilts, I finally chose hammock gear. I am glad that I did. The worksmanship is exeptional, and easy to adjust.

    I took this on a hammock hang with some friends. This year was not as cold (32 degrees) with light wind. I purchased the Incubator 20 with +2 oz Overstuff. It performed well and I was warm.
    Be sure to hang your hammock at the recomended 25-30 degree angle or manufacturers specs. Not doing so may allow some of the bundle to be tighter than the rest, resulting in lifting. Or causing some of the hammock to bear the weight while the rest sags some. The side of the quilt that goes against the hammock is flat. You want to be sure your hammock is flat against it.
    I am planning on using my hammock inside my apartment and it can be a year around thing.

  • Incubator 20

    by Craig Lambert – 28th Jan 2015

    Every now and then you run into a product that the class leader.....the Incubator is one such product. It is unquestionably designed and constructed at the highest quality possible. It is evident that Adam and crew have incorporated extensive research and testing into the design and build. I highly recommend the incubator for any hammock camper. The unit comes with a packable bag that in minimal in size and of high quality construction. One suggestion would be to add a larger storage bag when quilt is not being packed for the trail. I have not used the quilt in the field yet but do not anticipate any problems based on extensive previous reviews. I did have trouble receiving the exact quilt that I ordered and had to return the first shipment. For some reason I received different colors than ordered and the gross grain was coming off the corner of the quilt. However, exchange was quick and painless; return shipping was covered by Hammock Gear. Again, this is class leader and is highly recommended.

  • I Love It!!

    by Rifleman – 15th Jan 2015

    I tried the pad method, but did not like it. Finally took the plunge and bought the Incubator 20. So far I have slept through a 26 deg night and was toasty warm. (That is the coldest temps I have seen in my part of Texas since I got it.) Took me a bit to save for this purchase, but it is well worth it. Thanks!!

  • Hammock Bliss!

    by AndyU – 8th Jan 2015

    Ordered the 20 with 2oz overstuff for my nx-250. Customer service was awesome but overshadowed by the greatness of the under quilt. I finally tested it last night in 3 degree temps and howling wind. I used my 15 degree bag as a top quilt. I had on long underwear and a down sweater. I was cozy all night. It fits perfect on the clark and was easy to adjust. The little plastic d rings on the quilt makes it easy to adjust if needed. I see a 0 degree in my future.

  • No More Cold Butt Syndrom

    by Patty Gaunce` – 3rd Jan 2015

    I purchased the Incubator 20 Short with 4 extra ounces of fill. I am normally a cold sleeper even in the summer. Not any more. My plan to use my hammock every month is now possible. No matter how cold it is outside. Inside the hammock with the Incubator underquilt. there will be no CBS. Used it for the first time just after Christmas 2014. at 22 degrees F. Slept straight through the night no problems. Thank you Jenny for the great customer service and prompt replies to emails. Hammock Gear Rocks!

  • Great Customer Service

    by Kaytieann – 2nd Jan 2015

    I ordered the Incubator 20 for my nephew only 2 weeks before Christmas and didn't really expect it to arrive in time for Christmas. When I ordered the item I was told that these quilts are made to order and it normally takes three weeks to assemble and ship them. The gentleman I spoke with said he would try his best to get it shipped in time for Christmas but it probably wasn't very likely to happen. The item was shipped in less than a week and arrived in plenty of time for Christmas. Thank you so much Hammock Gear!
    The quilt is compact and light weight and seems to be of good quality. I can't comment on how well it works in the cold, as my nephew has not yet used it.

  • Quality Assembly

    by Runs with Sissors – 24th Dec 2014

    I ordered the Incubator 20 with +1oz of fill to satisfy my curiosity. I am traditionally a MYOG kind of guy, always tweaking everything and never satisfied. There is a lot of talk about the Incubator 20 being the "GO-TO" UQ. I had to try it out for myself.

    I have to say this quilt was put together well. The stitching is not only functional, but purdy too.

    I tried it out the same night I received it in the Linville Gorge. It did not get cold enough to really put it through the paces. I was hoping for some low 20's or teens, but no luck. I initially had some cold spots and had to play around with the suspension, but that's the case with any UQ.

    By my nature, I already have some mods in mind. I hate all the cordage on UQs, so I have some thoughts to incorporate some of Dutch's hardware into my UQ set up to eliminate the cordage. It's in my head right now, but I'll post an update on the forum when I figure it out. Again, nothing wrong with the quilt, just my constant urge to tweak everything.

    The quilt is quite compact and light. Much lighter than my DIY UQ.

    It didn't loft as much as I expected, but I don't care as long as I hit my expected temps.

    I tried my Incubator 20 on my Hennessy Explorer Dlx and my DIY gathered end hammock. It work fine with both with some adjustments.

    Praying for some downright fridgid temps for my hike in January at Uwharrie with my TLUSA troop.

    Thanks again Adam for the quality work! I will be back for my next top quilt.

    Walk Worthy!

  • hg incubator 20 +1oz

    by runswithsissors – 24th Dec 2014

    I received my HG Incubator 20 w +1oz and strung it up for a camping trip to Linville Gorge that very weekend. Adam worked with me because of a shortage in my 1st choise of fabric because of supply issues. I'm not picky, so I chose another subdued color an he got it right out to me.

    I already see some improvements I want to make to fit my own liking. Nothing wrong with the quilt, I'm just particular. I don't like any corded suspension system an am thinking of incorporating some of Dutch's hardware to my UQ to attach directly to my hammock. It's all in my head right now, so I'll work it out and post on Hammock Forum. I'm a DIY kind of guy, but wanted to try the incubator since it has such a large following on the forum.

    I have used it with my DIY hammock and my Hennessey Explorer Deluxe. Both work fine.

    Stitching is to notch! It's no only functional, but purdy, too.

    This was what I expected. I was hoping for colder temps to put it through its paces. But I can't control the weather.

    Great job Adam! I'll be back for my next TQ.

  • REALLY IMPRESSED

    by Josh Camp – 19th Dec 2014

    I have bought a lot of products from "cottage manufacturers" and although I have had nothing but awesome experiences, this purchase exceeded all my expectations. I'm truly appreciative with regard to the high level of attention to detail and overall customer service. I ordered a 20 degree Incubator in black (which I would guess is their most popular model) on a Sunday with a note included that I was hoping to use it on a trip just 8 days later. Honestly, Considering that it was a specialty product shipping from Ohio to Georgia, I did not expect to have it in time for my trip. I was extremely impressed when it showed up on day #5. I was able to use it on my trip to Seattle where I spent the night at Ranier and the Olympic National Forest in temps down to the 30's. It was super easy to set up and I was toasty every night with nothing more than an open sleeping bag. Thank you so much for the attention to detail and logistical efficiency. You have a customer for life.

  • Easily covers all the area's

    by Paul Haws – 3rd Dec 2014

    I used this under a Warbonnet Black Bird fit easily and as snug as a bug.
    I was using the 20 Incubator around the 50'S so of coarse I was perfectly warm. I can not wait to give it a try close to the true temperature rating.. I set this up so easily

  • Accurate temp ratings

    by Tucker – 27th Nov 2014

    After one night out using my Burrow 20 TQ and a foam pad in the high 30s and ending up with a cold back, I decided to pull the trigger on an Incubator 20. I took this out backpacking in WV last weekend and slept VERY comfortably in the 20s. I was toasty warm all night. I thought it had only gotten down into the 30s at night, but when I woke up to my water bottle frozen solid I realized it had gotten pretty cold. Sleeping with an underquilt is so much more comfortable and hassle free than sleeping with a pad. If you are thinking about buying a top quilt and holding off on an underquilt, don't. You don't know what you will be missing out on. The build quality on this quilt is 100% perfect. I even lost the stuff sack after testing it out one afternoon and they shipped me a new one free of charge after I ASKED to buy it from them. That is what I call customer service!

  • First time out - 24 degrees

    by Bill in Georgia – 18th Nov 2014

    I just bought two 20 degree incubators - one for me and one for my 14 year old son. I bought it based on the recommendations of a friend who has been hanging with an incubator for a year or so. The underquilts can in the mail about 2 weeks ago. When we unpacked them, I was impressed with the build quality. I set up my hammock and new Incubator in the back yard and lauded in it for about 15 minutes before I had to deal with a work issue. Dang job!

    The first real time we got to use the Incubators, was on a Boy Scout camp out this past weekend. As luck would have it, a cold front moved in and the temperatures dipped into the mid 20s. It got down to 24 degrees . Previously, my son was using pads and I had a 3/4 length underquilt. Both of us slept nice and warm all night long (including using a hot Nalgene water bottle for a little extra warmth). Even with a breeze coming in off the Lake, I was comfortable all night long. For me, Hammock Gear's product temperature ratings are conservative.

    I would highly recommend Hammock Gear's products. I look forward to many season's of use out of my Incubator.

  • Does what it says

    by Blaze (Hammock Forum) – 15th Nov 2014

    After speaking with Adam I decided to order the Incubator 20 degree underquilt for a quick November over night. Adam was able to get the order to me quickly and once getting it in the mail I headed out after work the next day. I ended up having to hike in the dark with a misting rain and temps in the high 30s. Once at the camp site and with cold hands I found the setup extremely easy and intuitive even for me who hadn't ever used an underquilt before...out of the bag, attach two S clips, pull the ends tight and you're set...that easy.

    So you'll ask, "did it keep me warm?" Yes. It got down to 32 degrees and I never got "cold butt". I'm 6'2" and the standard length and fill was just fine. The sides come up and around you nicely so I felt surrounded by warmth all night long. Oh, by the way, the wind blew 17mh all night long and I still didn't feel it in the Incubator.

    Adam, great job! The product is great and the quality of your work is perfect.

  • Awesome UQ Very warm1

    by John Gray – 31st Oct 2014

    After playing around and getting this under quilt dialed in I stayed very warm on my last section hike on the AT. Very easy to get dialed in on your hammock. Great product and customer service!

  • Better than advertised

    by Hang em' High on Hammockforums.net – 29th Oct 2014

    Ordered to Incubator 20s for an upcoming trip. I reached out to HG for some advice on use with a specific hammock. I received immediate communication and was asked to take a few measurements of my hammock and email them in. HG then made some adjustments at no cost to me to ensure that the quilt would fit properly. Amazing service. In addition to no cost adjustments, HG also shipped my quilt to me in time for a shorter trip so that I would be able to check the fit and send it back for any necessary adjustments, also at no charge. Well I didn't need to send it back because it fit perfectly the first time around. The performance of the quilt is well documented and I will say that it is warm just as promised. Purchased an Incubator 20 with 2oz of overstuff and I was so warm in 30deg temps I had to pull my topquilt down. Customer for life. I wish I could give them 10 stars.

  • My first UQ

    by Henrik J. alias Snowball on Hammockforums.net – 23rd Oct 2014

    I am a new ”hanger” but only two trips with pads convinced me it wasn’t the solution for me. I was considering a DIY under quilt but after a few YouTube videos with down all over the place I was convinced otherwise. Some YouTube videos and reviews later HG products was on top of my list mostly due to craftsmanship. When it arrived I wasn’t disappointed! I know quality when I see it. It is truly craftsmanship. I am impressed by the stitching in this ultra thin material and the details.
    I selected the Incubator 20˚ (-6.6°C) with 2 Oz overstuffing because realistically I don’t think I will be hanging much during the winter time and if I do 20°F (-6°C) should be sufficient for most of the time. Winter nights rarely gets colder around here.
    For me it was expensive due to import tax but HG is not to be blamed for that. BTW I am from Denmark.
    It has been used several times for napping in my “hammock lab” but sadly I haven’t had a chance in the woods yet and won’t get a chance in the next months or so but I cannot imagine I will be disappointed.
    I did not really know what to expect regarding the temperature in a UQ because I did not have anything to compare it to. Did not think I could compare it to a sleeping pad and I was right. The first time I tried it was a big surprise like a fire below the hammock for a moment and then the temperature stabilizes. No regrets here.

    A few words in Danish:
    Super kvalitet og varm. Der er tale om rigtig håndværk her. Kan på ingen måde sammenlignes med liggeunderlag der er et helvede at bokse rundt med i en hængekøje. Hvis man skal se hullerne i osten er der dog to minusser, den kan ikke bruges på jorden hvis der ikke er træer til rådighed men det er forventet, og det andet er der kommer moms og told på når den sendes til Danmark, så husk lige det med prisen hvis du er på budget. På trods af moms og told mener jeg stadig det er prisen værd for du skal være virkelig ferm ved symaskinen for at hamle op med hvad der leveres fra HG for ikke at tale om det roderi med dun man kan få ud af det. Som der står i HG’s vejledning skal man lave en vurdering af hvor varmt man sover men hvis man er medium i temp. tror jeg 20° F svarende til -6°C vil passe til de fleste danske vinterdage og jeg tror den kan bruges hele året. Min har standard længde og jeg er 183 cm og der er til mindst 5cm mere i højden efter min vurdering.
    Kan klart anbefales!

    Keep up the good work.
    Greetings from Denmark

  • Pretty dang awesome

    by Trent Arrington – 20th Oct 2014

    I just got my 20 degree incubator in today, and it is pretty dang awesome. Super good quality and light weight. I love it so far. Went and put it on my hammock and immediately felt warmth coming from it. Granted it was in the upper 50's but still really awesome. I can't wait to try it out below freezing. Also the customer service was incredible. I had to make a change and they were extremely helpful. If i can afford it in the future I will be coming back for a top quilt.

  • Look no Further

    by waylesswayfarer – 17th Oct 2014

    New to Hammock Camping and the Incubator 20 is my first UQ.. I couldnt be happier, fantastic service, quality thru and thru and the UQ does its job. I just spent 3 days 2 nights in the Dolly Sods Wilderness, WV and sure glad I had the Incubator 20 in my pack. first night pouring rain all night 45 deg,, warm and not a cold spot, I used a 20deg down sleeping bag for a TQ, 2nd night 33deg, never flinched,,snug as a bug in a pod, warm baby warm! Look no further, this is the real deal!

  • Instant comfort and warmth

    by GoatHanger – 17th Oct 2014

    If you are here reading reviews because you are contemplating an underquilt, don't waste any more of your time. BUY THIS QUILT. You feel the warmth building IMMEDIATELY upon laying in your hammock. I'm not kidding, it's instant. If you've used a pad or are currently using a pad, there is NO comparison. The suspension is great, the thing is incredibly warm, it's light, and it packs down small. Stop reading now, and place your order. You're welcome ;-)

  • Perfect

    by Andrew – 11th Oct 2014

    Shipping was fast. I was expecting top notch work based on reviews all over the web, but when it arrived, I was taken back at just how nice of an under quilt this is. Tons of loft and feels durable enough to take a severe beating for many years in the woods. Used it recently in the Dolly Sods with temps dipping into the mid to low 30's at night and I felt like I was sleeping in my bed at home. I'll never use a pad in my hang again. Thanks for the great product.

  • THE BEST Products & Customer Service

    by Brian K. – 11th Oct 2014

    I have nothing but good things to say about HG. From the time I emailed Jenny to the time my order arrived was a pure pleasure. I had multiple questions and changed my order a few times, yet I was always treated with respect and patience.

    The products I ordered (20* incubator /burrow, CF hex-tarp, and a couple pillows) are exactly what I expected. This isn't just hype folks - this company puts some serious TLC into their products. It's very evident that their staff have great training and have a passion to make the best gear. I had such a great experience I ordered more gear for my wife within 1 week of receiving my order.

    I'm positive you will find my experience is not unique. So, go ahead a place your order, I assure you it will be money well spent.

    Regards,
    -Brian K.

  • Great U/Q!

    by Oscar – 9th Oct 2014

    I needed my quilt in just over a week. With a few emails back and forth, it was determined that HG could fulfill my request. It arrived earlier than expected and the customer service was top notch. First use of the quilt was very simple. I had never used an U/Q before and I'm a hammock rookie. I had the U/Q set up perfectly in a few minutes. Very easy to use.

    Wow, did I stay toasty warm! Temps hit mid 20s that night and I couldn't believe how toasty warm I was. I'm thinking I can easily take this down to the single digits. I'll soon find out with the November deer season approaching!

  • Must own for hammock campers

    by jcblough – 8th Oct 2014

    I got one of these made for my ENO doublenest hammock. I tried it out for the first time this weekend on an overnight camp. The over ngiht low hit 45 and for most of the night, I was too warm if anything(I had it snugged up against me). I have also slept with it in my game room with it hung loose and it was comfortable there too. The build quality is outstanding, cannot recommend enough.

  • Works like a charm

    by George L. Paul – 10th Sep 2014

    I used the Incubator 20 underquilt for the first time on a 4 day backpacking trip along the Black Canyon of the Yellowstone. It interfaced very well with the Warbonnet Traveller 1.7, and kept me so comfortably warm. It appears to be the state-of-the-art in underquilts.

  • Superb quality and warmth

    by Jordan – 8th Sep 2014

    I had the 20 degree Incubator under my hammock in the BWCA in September. Overnight lows were in the 40s and this quilt performed excellently -- no complaints on warmth whatsoever.

    The quality of this quilt is immediately noticeable. This is a quilt that is built to last. The fabric, stitching, consistency of the down, etc. are all top-notch.

  • Better than expected!

    by Ryan M. – 26th Aug 2014

    This full length underquilt with 850GD was my ticket to hammock camping bliss. First night using it was upper 30's and I used it in combination with my 20 degree bag. I woke up sweating at 3AM and had to unzip my bag and use it in the same fashion as a top quilt. I was totally thrilled as I've tried using sleeping pads to keep warm and still wake up several times throughout the night cold. I have very low body fat and need lots of insulation to stay warm in general and especially when I'm sleeping. The full length quilt even kept my feet warm. Previously I would always wake up with cold feet in my hammock. This product has far exceeded my expectations. Thanks!

  • Works well down under

    by Daniel – 7th Aug 2014

    I ordered this with all the extras - extra loft, extra length - Hammockgear is upfront about the lack of contact which caused concern - the product took 4 weeks to arrive in Otago new zealand (about as remote as it gets from the USA). Apart from this - the product is great - fits my Hennesy Hammock well and is lightwieght and toasty warm (use in -5'c temp) - would definitley reccomend to anyone - good work!

  • Great quilt!

    by Unknown – 2nd Aug 2014

    I purchased this incubator 20* underquilt and a borrow 20* top quilt for my first hammock hang last week. This underquilt fit my BB hammock perfectly. The temp outside was in the high thirties to low forties and i was very comfortable in a tshirt and scrubs. I didn't wake up once during the night with any cold spots. Very happy with my quilts! Top quality.

  • Awesome Service

    by Keith Foster – 30th Jul 2014


    I have wanted an incubator for a while and finally received it as a birthday present from my bride. My under quilt was damaged and was totally my fault. Adam and Jenny were quick to respond to my wife and they worked out a solution. I have my incubator 20° and it is truly a piece of work. I can't wait til colder weather. Truly oustanding company. They aren't just selling gear, they take pride in helping and truly caring for their customers. I am a hammock gear customer for life.

  • Works well beyond what i expected

    by william hutch – 30th Jun 2014

    I took the under quilt for nine days on pct in sierras under my hennessey hammock zipper model. It rained and was windy gusting into well into the 40mph range and still kept me toasty warm. The only complaint is the brown isn't as good looking as the pictures on the website. It's more off a lighter brown than dark brown which doesn't take away from functionality of product. I would buy another and highly recomend them well worth the money.

  • super nice with hennessy hammock

    by Unknown – 21st Jun 2014

    Very nicely made. Attachment and adjustment is simple and secure. Much, much more comfortable than a mat. It's easy to use with the Hennessy "birth canal" opening and doesn't leave a cold spot as it covers the slit. HG provided an excellent purchasing experience. If you really enjoy sleeping in a hammock this is money well spent.

  • Amazeballs

    by NorCalGal – 20th Jun 2014

    I'n not sure I will be able to properly convey exactly how amazing my UQ is. First off, thank you Adam for such a spectacular piece of equipment. You were so accommodating with my order. Anyway, I ordered a 10 degree UQ because I'm a girl and I'm a cold sleeper. I tried it out on overnights around Mammoth in Muir Wilderness. The weather wasn't very cold but it dipped into the 30's and I was so toasty warm. I know, I know, a 10 degree in the 30's I should be warm, but I have no doubt that I can actually sleep down into the low 20's upper teens and stay warm. I will be trying that out this coming January in Yosemite. I HIGHLY recommend buying from Hammock Gear. I will be coming back to buy a burrow around Christmas. Thanks again!!

  • I would recommend this to someone else

    by Malkus – 27th May 2014

    Really warm and comfortable. I am a little concerned about how some of the elastic cords will hold up long term.

    But the incubator and burrow make a great combination and provide an amazing nights sleep.

  • excellent workmanship - awesome performance

    by HoosierDaddy – 12th May 2014

    After some discussion with Adam on the phone I decided to go with a standard length 20 degree incubator with 2 oz overfill and a standard length, wide width 20 degree burrow with 1 oz overfill. He mentioned he had some burnt orange fabric so I went with it and black for contrast. They turned out awesome! Finally got to use them a few weekends ago and I could not have been happier or more comfortable with the results. The first night was windy and in the mid thirties - I was toasty!! I actually vented the underquilt a bit. The second night was in the 50's - my wife was cold the first night so I traded my TQ for her sleeping bag and I was still toasty using just the UQ primarily. I would recommend HG. Adam's reassurance that he would make it right if what I ordered didn't work for me was the clincher for me. I will be ordering more products soon for my wife as she also is in love with the downy warmth the Burrow provided. :-) Thanks Adam!!!

  • Add me to the Satisfied Customer List

    by Jason – 9th May 2014

    Could not be happier with the quality of the UQ. I will be ordering my top quilt from Hammock Gear very soon (have to save my money). It is very much worth the money. Wife and son are wanting on now as well; If you've only used a sleeping pad in your hammock, try an UQ, you'll never go back to the pad. I appreciate the quality and detail given to Hammock Gear's products; if you're thinking about purchasing a product from Hammock Gear, stop thinking and buy, you won't regret it!

  • Excellent

    by Mike – 6th May 2014

    Excellent product. Asked Adam to make one and then I would order another after testing it out. I bought another one. Haven't taken it camping to canada yet but I will test it out this weekend. It has been very warm in the yard. Adam was very accomodating in getting me the second incubator before my trip. I appreciated the inconvenience on my tight deadline. I would order again

  • No complaints of coldness!

    by Amanda – 6th May 2014

    I was the only hammock camper with an under quilt AND I was the only hammock camper without complaints of not sleeping well throughout the night due to coldness! I slept so well and had no area that was felling left out in the cold :) My only regret is not investing in one sooner! It's so easy to setup and adjust. And I couldn't get over how easy it is now to get situated inside my hammock... no more wiggling and squirming to get situated inside a sleeping bag or yanking and scooting to center the theramrest just right for insulation! The under quilt is so soft, comfy & warm! I am so happy to have made this purchase! All the other hammock campers with me on that trip was green with envy!!

  • Great Underquilt

    by Matt – 30th Apr 2014

    I ordered the 20* Incubator in long, with the standard fill and it works great! I have used it on several outings with the temp ranging from the 30s to 50s. It is extremely warm and I am very confident that it would keep me warm well below its rating. It really feels as if there is a heated blanket underneath the hammock. I was able to loosen the ends in the warmer weather and it did a good job of not overheating me but still keeping me very comfortable. The product was delivered within two weeks of ordering which is satisfactory in my mind being these are made to order. The craftmanship and quality of the Incubator was excellent! I was hesitant to purchase this to begin with but I am very glad I did - it is well worth the money and a great piece of gear that I expect to last a very long time.

  • Excellent for Hennessy

    by Ghostbuster – 29th Apr 2014

    Thru-Hiking the AT this year and this is one of the best things I bought. Packs small. Set-up is more than easy after first use and adjustments. Occasional minor issues with cold spots are easily remedied by increasing tension and positioning hammock broadside to wind, as should always be the case.

    Works for Hennessy, in case you are wondering. Just have to wiggle and pull a little to get it square under you.

  • nice piece of gear

    by Eric – 28th Apr 2014

    Under quilt is very nicely made. I ordered the 20 degree model with no extra down added and the quilt was warm into the mid twenties easy enough.
    Thanks for a good piece of gear.

  • Must-have Hammock Gear

    by Mike Mara – 21st Apr 2014

    Let me start by saying this is an excellent underqulit … I love it. I tried sleeping on a pad in my hammock and could never keep it in place and could never get comfortable. The underquilt completely eliminates both issues. My only suggestion to new buyers is to take the time to adjust it before you hit the trail. I have a Warbonnet Blackbird and sleep in the diagonal position. I found that my feet would push the foot end of the underquilt into the centerline leaving my feet uncovered. I made a line with a couple of s-biners and some elastic cord. I attached one end to one of the tie points on the underquilt go over the hammock’s ridgeline and attach the other end to the matching tie point on the other side of the underquilt. This kept the foot end of the hammock in place even with the offset foot box. I noticed that the web site now has Ridgeline Quilt Hooks … probably a more elegant alternative to my poor man’s solution.

  • The best in the business...

    by Pizza – 16th Apr 2014

    The Incubator20 degree to me is the best under quilt made hands down. The design is pure genius with the baffle construction and versatile suspension system. The Argon fabric options are the icing on the cake. This is the best under quilt I have used and I've used many other quilts from other vendors over the years but Hammock Gear to me is at the top of line.

  • Finally Warm in a Hammock!

    by Justin Huffaker – 15th Apr 2014

    This product has done the impossible... I was able to stay warm overnight in a hammock. Great product, great customer service, great people. Hurray for Hammock Gear!!

  • A work of art

    by Yukon – 10th Apr 2014

    Each and every time I get a new quilt from Hammock Gear, the quality of workmanship is simply amazing. I have never had a thread out of place, or problems anywhere else. It's always great to deal with them, and the prices great. Thanks again!

  • great fit and warm

    by Unknown – 10th Mar 2014

    What a great product! Top of the line materials makes this the best hammock under quilt. The elastic drawstring helps to create a perfect fit around your hammock to keep wind from blowing under you. i have the 20* incubator and have been down to 25* with no problems. you have to buy one!

  • You get your monies worth plus very knowledgeable owner

    I ordered this 20 degree incubator with 1 oz over stuff from HammockGear on the day after Christmas and it came in just in time for a trip I had scheduled. I have been able to try it out on three separate occasions now. Once in the 30s, once in the 20s and lastly once in the teens with a lot of wind so I am sure it felt more like single digits. I was perfectly comfortable in the two within its range and survived better than I anticipated on the lower end of the scale. I would definitely recommend this quilt as it is high quality and worth far more than what they are priced at. Call Adam and speak with him as he will guide you in the right path to find something to meet your needs.

    Wow!The workmanship, quality and FUNCTION of this underquilt is absolutely amazing! I could not be happier with my purchase or the great customer service. Do not have any reservations about ordering an Incubator!

  • Don't hesitate... Push the button... Order one!

    I am a gear freak, probably just like you... I can honestly say that this is the single BEST piece of camping/backpacking equipment that I own. The quality is unsurpassed by anything on the market. I ordered my 20 degree Incubator with 2 extra oz of down fill so that I can push the temp rating down closer to 15 degrees. I've used it in temps as low as 23 degrees and I was toasty warm all night.

    The key to making the Incubator work properly is to spend the time to get it setup properly. The first time I used it, I just hooked it up and went with it. While I was very warm at first, as it got colder, I began to feel a cold spot in the middle of my back. However, on my second night, after engaging the secondary suspension and pulling the UQ a little more tout, the cold spot was then eliminated. Take the time to dial it in and you will be extremely satisfied!

    As for the materials... Beautiful. Soft. Sexy. Love it! Stitching was perfect. You won't find a higher quality product at REI or any other camp store.

    That said, if you are on the fence or if you are hesitating for any reason what-so-ever. STOP HESITATING! Place your order and reap the rewards! Like me, you'll probably also want to compliment your 20 degree Incubator by picking up a Phoenix 40 (just got mine) for warm summer nights.

    You won't regret it.....

    Cheers!

    This puppy sleeps like a champ. And it arrived two days before our trip. This is a great product bottom line. Thank you hammockgear for the customer service as well. These are good people.

  • Get Incubated!

    by Kevin S. (Slammer) – 15th Feb 2014

    Got my incubator 20 w/ 2 oz Overfill this week and it's Nice!
    Fits my Hennessy Backpacker very well. I set it up first night for a test run. It performed flawlessly,
    Heating up like an electric blanket.
    The low was 29 and I used a 10* ZPacks on top and whew, nice and toasty. Had to vent several times.
    In short - get this UQ! Ditch the pads and foam.
    Quality and delivery is 5 stars! Customer Service 10+

  • Just buy one

  • Easy to setup, very warm

    by MattTaylor – 27th Jan 2014

    I got a 20 UQ/TQ and used it in 18 and 21 degree nights this week. Excellent product. I stayed warm and slept great. Setup was much easier than I expected, they appear to be built with great attention to detail. I expect to get many years of use from them.

  • My first Underquilt

    by Lyle Sinor – 23rd Jan 2014

    The Incubator 20 was my first underquilt. I shouldn't have waited so long! Craftsmanship is excellent - attention to detail outstanding. Have tried it with a Hennessey hammock on two occasions at temperatures around 20 with a good breeze - kept me nice and warm with a 20 degree rated topquilt and thermal underwear. Suspension was easy to set up and kept the ends of the underquilt close to the hammock. The camo also looks really nice!

  • Just the best your money can buy

    by George Carr – 2nd Jan 2014

    Got to use my Incubator 20 last weekend on an overnight hike. Temps were in the mid 20's and I was never less than toasty warm. What do I think about HG's Incubators? They're the best underquilts your money can buy - I should know, I've owned 5 of them!
