    Question Standard or long Incubator? I'm 6'3"

    The Standard length Incubator 0 is long enough to generously cover most hammock campers up to about 6 2".
    "Generously cover" sounds to me like it would "sufficiently cover" me at 6'3". Anyone else at 6'3" have experience with a standard length Incubator? Will it be sufficient or will the longer length be necessary?

    I am 6'3" and used to own the Long Incubator. If I were going to buy a full length UQ again, I would get the regular length. You really don't need every last single inch of your toes covered. And even then, the standard length probably will.

    I'm 6'1"+, like the long but wish I had gotten the regular width.

    I have the regular length, but I'm just under (by about half an inch) 6 ft.
    If I were 6'3" then I'd have bought the long, maybe the standard version would be OK but I'd rather have some extra margin.
    I suppose if the price or weight or bulk is a big issue you could make do on the standard length, but if it were me I'd go long.
