Burrow 10



Hammock Gear Top Quilts

Frequently Asked Questions

Hammock Gear makes some of the highest quality lightweight down top quilts for hammockers and ground dwellers available anywhere. We take pride in our materials, craftsmanship and customer service.  For ground sleepers, we recommend ordering the wide width, as well as pairing your quilt with a ground pad attachment kit:  http://www.hammockgear.com/ground-pad-attachment-kit/


Quilt orders placed on or after 8/16/2018 have a lead time of approximately 4 weeks to ship.  Lead time is subject to change.

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


About the Burrow 10˚

The Burrow works for both hammockers and ground-dwellers alike. It is a lightweight sleeping quilt that takes the insulation of a traditional sleeping bag and puts it all on the top and sides, leaving the back (which insulation is compressed and unusable anyway) open. Many hammockers use top quilts in lieu of a traditional sleeping bag because they are easier to slide into when it's time to sleep.The Burrow is designed with a half taper, vertical torso baffles, foot box and a cinched top.

The 10° Burrow is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock. With a conservative rating of 10°F, and filled with premium quality, water resistant, 850 fill-power goose down, it will keep you warm during colder seasons.


Goose Down

Hammock Gear is committed to providing down products that meet RDS (Responsible Down Standard).  RDS certifies that geese and ducks are treated ethically (no live plucking or force feeding) and the down is traceable back to the source.  Both our Premium and Economy quilts use down that meets the Responsible Down Standard. For more information visit: http://responsibledown.org/


Compression Size

The Stuff Sack we ship with this quilt is approximately 8.5 liters, but due to the nature of goose down, it can be compressed further with an aftermarket compression stuff sack.  We do not recommend keeping the quilt compressed for more than 24 hours.  The quilt should be stored in the cotton storage bag provided, when not in use.


Top Quilt Advantages

Having found the Hammock Gear website, chances are you are aware of some of the advantages of top quilts. Their growing popularity, with both the hammock crowd and ground dwellers alike, is due to their function and versatility, especially as compared to traditional mummy-style sleeping bags. Some of these advantages include: 

  • ease of entry and exit
  • ease of movement once inside
  • ease of adjustment
  • no wasted insulation under the body
  • no undesired hood-on-the-face
  • no claustrophobia effect
  • weight savings
  • volume savings

We utilize the finest 850 fill power, water-resistant goose down on the market in all of our quilts. It is tested and certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory and is RDS Certified.



All Premium Hammock Gear quilts are made of ARGON fabric. All ARGON fabric is specifically designed ripstop nylon (except for 67 taffet) 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. The weights in the table above assume Argon 67 material. Argon 90 adds approximately 0.75 oz to final weight, per shell. 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.

All of our 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 a 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.



Two options are available: Sewn footbox or Zipper Footbox. The sewn option is a permanent footbox approximately 20 inches long, measured from the bottom. A sewn footbox is fully enclosed/fully insulated, and thus allows no cold spots. It is recommended for 0° - 20° temps. The Zipper version allows the quilt to be fully opened and to lie flat. It is recommended for temps above 20°. When closed the zipper version, which has a drawcord closure, has an opening of approximately 1/2 inch. Some users, depending on conditions/temps, will use a clothing item or small piece of foam pad to plug this hole. Many HG customers enjoy using their quilts in the home, and love the versatility of using the quilt “blanket style” or as a “throw”, and the zipper version fits the bill.



Our top quilts are built with a standard Half-Taper design. Custom work is available if you have different requirements.


Cord Loops

Quilts come standard with attachment cord loops (these can be omitted by request).

  • awesome new quilt!

    by Paul J Schonbrun DO – 9th Jul 2018

    I ordered this quilt a while ago and bought a 10 Degree Burrow with 2 oz down overfill. Sensational fit and finish.. comfy closed foot box (my choice). Goes perfectly with my 3/4 HG underquilt. Great gear!

  • So Disappointed

    by Marco C. – 22nd Mar 2018

    I spent a lot of money on the full Burrow 10 version after having purchased and enjoyed the econ Incubator under quilt. I got the Burrow with the snaps so I can use it as a sleeping bag or blanket. However, the idiotic snaps wouldn't stay snapped and i resnapped them about 12 times through my first night on a 30 degree night on the AT in Georgia.The 55" width should have been good enough to keep me wrapped up but it seemed impossible to keep snug within the quilt. I had to wake up and put an emergency blanket lining my hammock since the quilt wasn't fending off the cold well enough with the difficulty of staying tucked within. The second night was slightly improved though the stupid quilt just didn't keep me secure inside. I stayed in a shelter on the third night and a fellow camper had an Enlightened Equipment quilt that had multiple fasteners that kept him inside his quilt. It seemed much better designed. The bottom line is that I way overpaid for this quilt and am sorry I purchased it. I love the Hammock Gear Incubator as well as the Quest Rain Fly and Mesh sleeve but the Quilt was not what I hoped for.

    Response from Hammock Gear:
    We have implemented our new design as of April 1st to avoid snap issues in the future. We're terribly sorry about the issues with your quilt and will rectify that immediately for you.

  • Just in time

    by Preppersteve – 14th Feb 2018

    Picked up another Incubator 10 and Burrow 10 to keep the wife warm on a trip to Yosemite last weekend. The nice weather turned to snow on the last day and she was happy and warm. These quilts are made to perfection and the small details are amazing. Thank you so much for getting them done before we left.

  • As good as I hoped

    by Don – 4th Dec 2017

    I normally carry a Marmot Never Summer 0 degree down bag in the late fall and winter. After learning more about top quilts I decided to make the switch.
    I just wrapped up my first weekend out with the Burrow 10. I ordered mine wide, and with a sewn foot box and I could not be more pleased. The overnight temps were around 30, so I have not pushed this quilt to the limit yet, but I was very warm and comfortable. Of particular note is the foot box. I tend to get cold feet when I sleep and usually wear down booties overnight. I had no need for booties while using this top quilt. The foot box was surprisingly warm. I also changed sleeping position several times in my hammock and never uncovered a cold spot, likely thanks to the extra width. It compresses down to nearly nothing and packs 2 pounds lighter than the sleeping bag it replaced. This quilt was worth every penny.

  • Nicest thing I own
