The ULTIMATE underquilt for guaranteed comfort... At 78 inches (198cm), the Incubator 40° is long enough to generously cover most hammock campers up to about 6’2”. With 7oz of premium quality, 900 fill power Hungarian goose down, this underquilt will protect you in temperatures down to 40° and only 19.5oz packed! If you are looking for an underquilt that is light weight, hassle free and will allow you to enjoy your hammock on the chilly late spring/early fall nights, 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, Nite-ize #2 plastic "S" biners, and a stuff sack.

Getting older I am always looking to reduce my backpack weight so I can go further and do more. I had always used 3/4 underquilts including those from HG, but I could never get the orientation just right. I thought I would have to just continue to compromise, but I ordered a 40 degree incubator from HG out of M50 and now I have the best of both worlds. Lightweight and full coverage. Top if off with great customer service and it makes for an unbeatable combination.

The 40* incubator is in my opinion a nearly perfect all season quilt. It has been my experience that the actual comfort rating is more like 25* or 30*. But I also use this quilt in warmer weather as well . All spring and into summer, then early fall/winter. 80* is the cutoff point for me unless its very windy. This quilt is a must for anyone who hangs year round and likes to do so in comfort. It's build very well and requires little adjusting. Doesn't sag late into the night, like some other brands, and will probably last my lifetime. You won't regret it...

The incubator weighs virtually nothing. It packs up nicely and doesn't take long at all to decompress after unpacking. The 78"length ensures that your entire body is covered and warm. It attaches easily to my suspension. I love all of the extra d rings that were added to the sides, so that you can modify it to work in any situation. I would definitely recommend the incubator to all of my hanging buddies! An overall outstanding product!

Heard nothing but good comments and reviews about Hammockgear, it made my decision to buy my first underquilt easy. The hard part was which to get! I decided on the 40° incubator since most of my camping is around the summer months. I did get 1 oz. overstuff just for a little added warmth, I had already placed my order when I decided on the overstuff so I emailed them and they changed my order no problem! The great customer service and the quality craftsmanship should make Hammockgear an easy choice for anyone!

After a year of cold-butt in my Blackbird, and multiple failures of pads and home-made underquilts, I bit the bullet and purchased this Incubator 40. It fits great, is easy to adjust, and the anatomical shape is perfect - it really fits like a glove. I'm glad I got the full length (no more messing around with a separate pad for my feet that can shift) instead of the 3/4. I've slept a couple of nights that got down into the low 60's, and felt no cold spots. If you have a hammock, do not hesitate to purchase the HG Incubator. It oozes craftsmanship, performs as claimed, and is a great value.
