 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

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).

  • Wonderful Top Quilt

    by Tim Holtzclaw – 24th Jul 2017

    Just what I needed. Will be using this on a Linville Gorge/Appalachian Trail trip this fall and winter. I love to winter camp and I know the Econ 10 top quilt will do me justice. Very light weight and packs small, great price. Have used their under quilts before and no complaints here. The products made by HG are top quality, and are made extremely well. Will be purchasing more products in the future.

  • Great Product and Superior Service

    by Some Fat Old Guy – 28th Jun 2017

    I used this quilt on Mt. Whitney last weekend and I was extremely pleased. It was comfortable and warm. And best of all it was compact and light. Buying this was a leap of faith and it paid off. I am looking forward to getting good use out of this quilt on my upcoming trips.

    But as good as the quilt is the service was outstanding. I delayed too long in ordering and realized it would probably arrive after this last hike. I emailed the company and the production supervisor responded and let me know when it was due to arrive, I responded that I was hoping to use it last weekend and by God he got it to me in time. I was very pleased and impressed that he did that and very grateful. Based on that one experience I cannot recommend Hammock Gear highly enough and will look here first for gear in the future.

  • LOVE IT!

    by Jordan – 13th Jun 2017

    My girlfriend and I each recently got the Burrow Econ 10 (wide) quilts (hers with a sewn bottom; mine with snaps) to use on the ground in place of a traditional sleeping bag. Right when we received out quilts, we could tell that they are super high quality, with amazingly soft, luxurious feeling materials and lot of loft.

    As these were our first quilts, we were both a bit nervous that they would be drafty. However, they were super warm (and that's from someone from SoCal who typically thinks 50 degrees F is cold)! It only got down to about 38F or so degrees when we used them on the first night and when we were completely "burritoed" (scientific term, I believe) and wearing long johns, base layer shirt and beanie, we were sweating. However, I'd rather be too warm than too cold. On the second night, after I had much more faith in the warmth of my quilt, I loosened the the draw string bottom of my snapped quilt to let a bit of air in and vented the quilt a bit on each side, and I was very comfortable all night :)

    Also, the quilts can be compacted down to a super small size, which made packing a lot easier.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

  • exactly what wanted

    by chason – 31st May 2017

    This item arrived on time. I used it on a hike on the first day, and it kept me very warm. It is very light and compactable. It came with a stuff sack and a storage sac. The quality seems very good. Thank you hammock gear!

  • 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!

  • Unicorn Feathers

    by John & Liz – 25th Apr 2017

    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.
