 About the Burrow Econ 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, foot box and a cinched top. Comes complete with a stuff sack and storage sack.

The 10° Burrow Econ is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock or on the ground. With a conservative rating of 10°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

*Indicated lengths are for Snap closure Burrows when they are snapped and cinched closed. Burrows that are unsnapped and open are approximately 4" longer than above. Burrows with sewn footboxes are approximately the same length as shown. The standard model is designed to fit persons up to 6' tall.



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.



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


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.



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.



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



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).

  • Great Quility and perfect for backpaging.

    by GMune – 16th May 2017

    I purchased the under quilt last fall and decided to get the matching set after a couple of hangs with the under quilt. I was a bit shy spending the money at first but I have no regrets as I know this product will
    Last me years to come. I hike and hang in northern Wi,MN and the UP so this is much needed for me and since then my friends have ditched their homemade or cheap Amazon under quilts for one of these. I have not given the full single didget test I do every year but I did sleep in just underwear and a T shirt a couple weekends ago and it got down to 30 degrees at night and I was plenty comfey. I recommend to anyone thinking of
    Buying a top quilt and or a under quilt. You will not regret it!

    Ok, this was down right magical. We had a hike planned where we had to carry in crampons, snow shoes and other gear. The trusty 0F synthetic mummy bags were just going to be to heavy. Invested in these new Econ Top Quilts. First off these are new for HG. When I saw them it was going to be tight schedule wise. But they made it - FedEx truck pulling up just as we were leaving. Saved the day. Secondly, I am not sure what is 'econ' about these. Top notch workmanship, great insulation, amazing warmth. We especially appreciated the snap enclosure behind the neck which allowed us to mimic our mummies. And now my full shelter kit - tarp, hammock, TQ and UQ fit in the sleeping bag area of my pack. And teh combined weight of all of them is less than any one of the items they are replacing (tent, sleeping bag, mat, etc). The fabric is extremely soft, no allergic reaction to the down and the colors (one orange and one blue) are stunning. Thanks for quality gear.

  • So surprised by the loft and the fine fit and finish.

    by Happy Hammocker – 23rd Apr 2017

    We were really surprised by the fluff and loft of this 10 degree. It has the 3 inch baffles and they are stuffed to the max. What a wonderful quilt! The Ion fabric is so nice. There is no compromise, other than weight, by using the Ion. The feel of the Ion is superb.. I really think this 10 degree rating is a modest estimate of how warm this thing will keep you. Our customer service experience couldn't have been better. Overall just Very satisfied. Thank you, HG. You've added a loyal customer.
