    Finally 40 degree Incubator was flawless

    My 40 degree with the replaced main suspension was perfect this weekend. No slipping issues with the larger cordage added in place of the stock thickness. With the lighter cord I would move around and cause it to slip out from under me.

    That looks quite good, both primary and secondary adjustments, and it looks like you have it skewed nicely for a head-left lay.

    Great looking quilt... HG makes some really superb gear!

    That's a great looking set up!
    Love the blue outer with the orange inner!

    Glad to hear it kept you comfy!

    I have a color system for my temps. My low low temp setups have black insides, summer temps have orange insides, around freezing to 40 temps have brown and grey insides. Those last 2 aren't the same.

    That's super clever!
    Do you mark the temps on your storage sack as well?

    We have been thinking about adding check mark boxes to our storage sacks for easy indication. Thoughts?

    The storage sacks have it marked from manufacture all but 1. But glancing at the colors tell me if it's UQ 0,20 or 40 and TQ 20,30 or 40.

    IMO, the check boxes on the storage sacks would be a great idea!! I have the model and temp written on the outside of all 6 of my HG UQs and 1 TQ storage bags and stuff sacks. I got into hammocking, and my 4 children all wanted to get into hammocking too. So, I had to buy a bunch of UQs, so bought all HGs...why not choose the best!!??
