Hammock Gear Under Quilts

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 Under Quilts

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.

All of our quilts ship with a 24″ x 36″ Storage Sack and Stuff Sack for backpacking.

 

About the Phoenix Econ 20° and 40˚

With premium water resistant, 800 fill duck down, the Phoenix Econ is rated conservatively. The Phoenix Econ is the ‘little brother’ of the Incubator Econ, approximately 3/4 length. It’s ideal for people who are pack size and weight conscious and want to shave those few extra ounces without sacrificing much in warmth or comfort. The Phoenix Econ helps you maximize every ounce by using goose down and with 9 differential baffles that run the length of the quilt, which helps keep the down from shifting, providing more warmth. (The baffles make this much warmer than similar quilts using “sewn-through” construction, allowing more loft).

The Phoenix Econ has a three dimensional, ergonomically shaped cut, which not only reduces weight, but provides a more secure wrap around the hammock, eliminating drafts. This underquilt (or UQ) is 3/4-length. This means it is designed to insulate you from your shoulders down to below your knees. Many hammoock campers will use a small piece of closed-cell-foam pad under their lower legs and feet since they typically require less insulation underneath to stay warm. The Phoenix Econ comes complete with a stuff sack, storage sack and everything needed to suspend the UQ from your favorite hammock.
