Burrow 30



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 30˚

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. Comes complete with a stuff sack and storage bag.

With premium quality, water resistant, 850 fill-power goose down, the 30° Burrow is just the thing to keep you warm on the chilly summer nights.


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 5.5 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).

  • Best out there !

    by Unknown – 19th Jun 2018

    Best warmth to weight ratio I’ve found in years. Not a skimpy quilt that will leave you cold. Lofts well and no areas left without fill. Definitely made to be better than suggested warmth rating.
    You won’t be disappointed!

  • So comfortable...

    by Jeri – 26th May 2018

    My husband and I tried our new Burrow 30s (he got the tall, I got the regular) on a simple car camping weekend. We didn't test the temperature range and I'm not worried abut that-the other reviews make me sure they'll be plenty warm. The best thing so far is the total comfort of being able to side sleep with one knee bent.... My hips often hurt after a weekend in a mummy bag but I felt refreshed and limber both mornings. And cozy - l used the zip toe box ( but not the draw string) and the quilt stayed in place easily even though I toss and turn.... Can't speak highly enough. And the light weight is going to be a big plus on our long walk next year... Thanks guys!!!

  • Premium Burrow 30

    by Mary – 30th Apr 2018

    I absolutely love, love my premium Burrow 30! It has been toasty well below its rating and everyone I show it too can't believe how light it is. A big shout-out to everyone at Hammock Gear, especially for making mine with the new horizontal baffles. Mary from Canada

  • Exactly what I needed

    by UAV7259 – 29th Mar 2018

    I was looking for something light for my backpacking trip and when this was suggested, I was skeptical. No reason to be! It kept me warm and was easily packable. I loved the versatility of my sleeping positions with this quilt. I used it with my hammock and on a sleeping pad. Thank you for making a durable high quality product!

    by Your Name – 16th Mar 2018

    Have used this on multiple occasions and it has performed outstandingly. While using this in my hammock for the first time it took some time to get my adjustments right with this and my 20 degree econ phoenix, but after that i was warm and cozy all night in mid twenty temps. Also tested this out on my roof deck of my apartment. It was 30 degrees with a decent wind. Had my old school hand me down thermarest with this quilt and was warm and toasty for the time i was out there except for me naked head haha. Definitely worth the buy. Oh and customer service is on point! Was able to deliver in time for my planned trip when I asked if that would be possible!

  • First Experience

    by Rich L – 19th Feb 2018

    Used this for the first time on a 3 day backpacking trip along the AT. Night 1 included temperatures in the low 20s. Had this coupled with my 20 degree econ phoenix. Unfortunately my set up acted as a wind tunnel so I had a hard time staying warm until i decided to pull the quilt over top of my face and my upper body was able to warm up a bit. Night 2 was in the 30s and had no problem with the same set up. Was warm and toasty throughout the night! Love the versatility of quilts in hammocks. So much easier then bags!

  • THE Best Gear

    by Jack / Australia – 17th Dec 2017

    Absolutely LOVE the quality & care this company operate with. Their gear is NOT the best in the world ? "it is" the BEST you will ever need. Awesome to own and rely on this equipment in any part of the world all weather & conditions. My very best thanks to H.G. Highly recommend.

  • Toasty Warm

    by Marc – 3rd Dec 2017

    Bought myself this top quilt to go with my matching 30 deg bottom quilt. The lightens my load by over half a pound ditching my 30 deg sleeping bag. And I am toasty warm. I'm going to test it out this winter on a below 30 day because I'm pretty sure I can take this combo down into the mid 20s. Fabric is great and the workmanship is top notch.
