 About the Burrow Econ 0˚

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, foot box and a cinched top. Comes complete with a stuff sack and storage sack.

The 0° Burrow Econ is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock or on the ground. With a conservative rating of 0°F, and filled with premium quality, water resistant, 800 fill-power Grey Duck Down, it will keep you warm during colder seasons.

 

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 zipper issues
  • no claustrophobia effect
  • weight savings
  • volume savings

Burrows with sewn footboxes are approximately the same length as shown. The standard model is designed to fit persons up to 6' tall.

 

Down

We utilize the finest 800 fill power, water-resistant duck down on the market in our Econ Quilts. It is tested and certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory.

 

Fabric

All Hammock Gear Econ quilts are made of Ion fabric. All Ion fabric is specifically designed nylon taffeta which is manufactured for Hammock Gear. This material is a 20 Denier nylon taffeta with a DWR (durable water resistant) coating, which makes it great fabric for lightweight quilts. Weight is 1.1 oz / yd²

Baffles

All of our quilts (except the Burrow 50) 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. The Burrow 50, the lightest of our Top Quilts, uses sewn-through construction.

 

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.

 

Footbox

Two options are available: Sewn footbox or Snap 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 Snap version allows the quilt to be fully opened and to lie flat. 5 snaps are used. It is recommended for temps above 20°. When closed the snap version, which has a drawcord closure, has an opening of approximately one 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 snap version fits the bill.

 

Colors

Select your choice of exterior color from our current stock. The color of the interior fabric is limited to Black Ion.

 

Taper

Our top quilts are built with a standard Half-Taper design.

 

Cord Loops

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

  • Very comfy, warm, and ventilated!

    by Unknown – 28th Jun 2017

    Ive been using my Econ 0 snaps quilt for the past couple weeks while living in my car in the Eastern Sierras... I bought the Long/Wide 0 just to be covered for all different types of conditions. I'm 5'11" and it's perfect. It's only been 30-45* here at night but The Econ 0 stays perfectly warm and never gets too hot or if the sun is on me then I just stick out a leg to cool off. I can't wait to test this thing on in zero degree temps. I love my Hammock Gear quilt!

  • Love it!

    Much of my comments regarding the Incubator apply to the Burrow as well:

    When the Econ versions of the Incubator and Burrow were released, I picked up a set without hesitation. I already own an original set purchased almost a year ago, and they perform every bit as well as advertised. An additional set for my wife has been planned for this year, and the cost savings of the Econ line without compromising quality of materials or craftsmanship, made the decision easy!

    Because I live in Alaska and can't afford a whole range of quilts, I chose 0* quilts. So far, I've used them in temperatures ranging from about 15 to 60* and slept very comfortably. It's easy to vent excess heat in warmer temps, or bundle up in them when it gets cold.

    Being relatively new to hammock camping, I was hesitant to purchase a top quilt when I already owned several high quality expensive sleeping bags. I have no regrets after using these and experiencing how much better they work in a hammock without all the extra material of a sleeping bag. I chose Burrows with sewn foot boxes to maximize warmth. Once you commit to hammock camping, this should be on your short list!

    Everything I've purchased from Hammock Gear has been top quality and deserving of the high reputation these guys have in the hammock community.
