Burrow Econ 20



Hammock Gear Top Quilts

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/


At the moment our lead time is approximately 4-5 weeks to ship out new made to order quilts.

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


 About the Burrow Econ 20˚

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 20° Burrow Econ is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock or on the ground. With a conservative rating of 20°F, and filled with premium quality, water resistant, 800 fill-power Grey Duck Down, it will keep you warm during colder seasons.



Compression Size


The Stuff Sack we ship with this quilt is approximately 5.5 liters, but due to the nature of duck 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 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).

  • Keeps me warm

    by The Big Red Hiker – 12th Sep 2017

    The quality of this product is outstanding ! They put the same love into the econ quilts as they do the regular quilts. I can't say enough about this quilt if you are wanting an awesome quality but affordable quilt then look no further. I have only used it with my 20 degree underquilt and it got down to 43 degrees and I was to hot had to sleep in shorts. Recommend getting one.

  • very warm

    by Unknown – 9th Sep 2017

    My first down filled quilt since I'm just getting into back country hiking I have don't have the experience to make comparisons. But so far it seems very warm but the temperatures have only gotten down in the mid 40s.

  • excelllent product! great value for cost, size, and weight!

    by MC – 7th Sep 2017

    Purchased this after a recent AT section hike using my 5 yr old 40 degree Marmot bag. With temps in the 50's I was still cold but sweaty, making for chilly nights! I researched several quilt brands and shopped for the best value in terms of features and cost. This quilt wins!

    Recently tested it on an overnight with 37 degree temps and stayed warm, using it on the ground with a 1.5" inflatable pad and quilt straps. I was not sweaty as I could vent the bag easily on the sides or move my leg out; just like a comforter at home.

    Best, this quilt will now replace my down "over it all" jacket for winter hikes as it provides more coverage for use during rest breaks, covering legs and torso both when sitting and packs down as small. Best purchase in a while.

  • never thought I'd buy a quilt?

    by Drew W. – 31st Aug 2017

    A Backpacker friend convinced me to try a quilt. Ordered the hammock gear econ 20 and was a bit apprehensive at first. Slept in it a couple of nights ago and it works like a dream. Kept me toasty warm in 40 degree weather. Packs down light and small. Easy to get in and out of. I'm sold on quilts now. I think Hammock gear has the best value in quilts anywhere. Now my wife wants one too.

  • Excellent customer service!

    by David B – 28th Aug 2017

    I ordered this quilt for a backpacking trip I'm going on in about a week. I saw in the email after my order that the top quilt wasn't going to be here until after I left so I emailed HammockGear support and they were very understanding. I ended up getting my quilt yesterday (still more than a week before my trip).

    From first impressions, the quilt is comfortable and small. Just what I was looking for. I'll leave a more complete review after I use it on my trip.

  • product great company even better

    by CS – 28th Aug 2017

    I really like this quilt and more importantly this company. I would buy anything they sell. They have been a pleasure to deal with and have gone out of their way to make sure both the quilt and the experience were top of the line.

  • love it

    by Bryan – 23rd Aug 2017

    I just returned from a short four day backpacking trek through Glacier NP. This quilt was everything I could have hoped for, and less than half the weight of my old north face bag. Comfortable, warm, packs down well, easily adjustable. Costumer service can't be beat - excellent communication, easy ordering experience. Quality product and company.

  • Quilt Newbie

    by Ken – 21st Aug 2017

    Wow. What amazing service! I have my quilt in plenty of time for my upcoming High Sierras hike. It looks great and I can't wait to try it out. I'll write another review after the hike.

    Thank you!

  • love love love my quilt

    by Unknown – 17th Aug 2017

    I received my quilt a few weeks ago and got to use it for the first time on a trip this week where the temps were in the high 30s and in the past with my 20 degree bag I would be freezing, but with my quilt I was toasty warm and sooooo comfortable! The price and quality can't be beat. I am beyond pleased with my purchase and 100% recommend this to anyone who's looking for a quilt on a budget. Top of the line quality for about half the price.

  • Great Top Quilt

    by Dave – 16th Aug 2017

    I used this on a backpacking trip along with the Econ Incubator 20 Degree Under Quilt and they performed flawlessly. Great Product!

  • awesome!

    by D Cook – 16th Aug 2017

    Outstanding all around! This was well worth the wait. Great craftsmanship and delivered just ahead of the promised date. I will be ordering one for my wife soon!

  • Amazing Quality

    by Unknown – 16th Aug 2017

    Haven't used the product just yet, but the fabric is strong and very comfortable to lay in. Compacts down extremely small! First quilt for me, can't wait to use it!

  • I was a little worried as a side sleeper

    by Forrest – 14th Aug 2017

    I heard great reviews about the Hammock Gear Econ quilts, but I was kind of worrried as a side sleeper whether or not they would work out for me. I went with the wide version, and couldn't be happier. The quilt is super nice, lightweight, keeps me very warm, and packs down well. The first night I used it I didn't quite have the hang of it, and kept having the sides untuck and I would wake up cold. By the second night I had it all figured out. For side sleepers snap the neck closure on the side of your neck instead of the back, keep your legs straight and start tucking from your legs up to your shoulders. I had no problems after this, and even with moving a bit in my sleep didn't have any problem with it untucking.

  • Unbelievable

    by Michael P – 14th Aug 2017

    I was astonished at the quality of this quilt. I ordered the 20-degree version long and I am 6'2'' and it fits me perfectly. I went over the stitching and all is flawless. I will definitely be ordering one for my wife real soon. Thanks for an awesome product.

  • High Quality Quilt

    by Matt – 10th Aug 2017

    We purchased two quilts and love them. If you are thinking about buying sleeping bag you should consider buying this instead.

  • Great product and great customer support

    by SKS – 8th Aug 2017

    First of all, I am so thankful for the HG team to have helped me get the quilt before a backpacking trip to the Eastern Sierras! Thank you very much for being so considerate and accommodating my trip deadline!

    Regarding the quilt, I got to use it during my last trip. Overall I am very impressed so far. It feels very soft and warm, it is very lightweight, is nice to sleep in, compresses to a very small size and fits nicely in the small sack that came with the product! One potential con that I cannot confirm yet (or is that expected due to the down material? This is my first down quilt, so I don't know) is the distinct poultry type smell (especially at some spots around the seams..and that smell becomes even stronger when there is moisture / humidity inside the tent as that's when I felt it first?). I am aerating the quilt since I came back, hoping that the smell goes away, and will update if it does. Please let me know if I should do something else for this. Other than that, really good quilt. I will comment on the durability as time passes and I get to use it more.

    Response from Hammock Gear:
    That smell should go away after airing it out for a bit. The water resistant coating on the down is reacting to the moisture in the air. Let us know if the odor doesn't subside, and we will take care of you.

  • Good stuff

    by David Allen – 1st Aug 2017

    Purchased two Econ 20s to replace a few name brand sleeping bags. Despite the long lead time they were worth the wait. My daughter and I received them on Saturday and were giving them a test run on Monday. They proved a little slippery for a 9 year old and I spent most nights retrieving hers off the ground, but she never complained about being cold or it being too heavy. Added bonus she got to pretend to be a carrot (blaze orange). Definitely recommend the bag and kudos to the guys fielding "where's my bag?" calls.

  • Great but not perfect

    by Artem – 31st Jul 2017

    This is one of the best deals I have come across in my quest for an affordable quilt with very few compromises. So far, it has been very warm, comfortable, and versatile. The only gripe I have is that the snaps for the footbox are a joke - they might as well not be there because they come undone at the slightest tug. The funny thing is that the bottom and top snaps hold reasonably well - why couldn't hammock gear have used the same snaps for the footbox? Confused. Overall, though, I'm very happy with my quilt and would definitely buy again.

  • Great Quilt at a Great Value

    by Unknown – 19th Jul 2017

    I've been slowly accumulating a new set of lighter gear, and decided on a quilt to help shed some ounces. After hearing so many good things about hammock gear and their products, I decided on the HG Burrow Econ 20. It's loft has been great since the start, it's toasty warm, and is made very well in my books. I don't have any complaints as of yet.

  • So far I absolutely love this quilt

    by James – 19th Jul 2017

    Extremely light, warm, packable, and comfortable. Everything I have been looking for.

  • awesome!

    by Tracy – 13th Jul 2017

    The burrow econ 20 is a awesome piece of gear. Lightweight, warm, and compact. Everything you need for 3 season backpacking. So glad I heard about this product!

  • Philmont Trip

    by Mark H. – 5th Jul 2017

    I purchased this quilt for use at Philmont Scout Reservation in New Mexico. After researching numerous products, I chose the Burrow Econ 20. What sold me on this product was the cost compared to other quilts on the market. It is a true value not only in cost, but in how light and packable this quilt is. Our trip is not until mid-July, but I have slept several times using the quilt and my ground pad and was very comfortable thoughout the night (mid 60's) When ever I started to feel to warm, it was easy to lift the side of the quilt and regulate the temperature. It is does not have theat constricting feel like a mummy bag has.

    I am truly looking forward to hiking the trails at Philmont and will write a follow-up review after the trip to let you know how it performed.

  • Best Value out there

    by Sam – 30th Jun 2017

    For the price you cannot beat this. I wouldnt hesitate to recommend this to anyone who is looking for their first quilt, or is looking for another quilt to add to their collection. I havent used it in colder temps yet so this is more of a first look, but everything came just as described and I am really happy this this purchase. You wouldnt know just looking at this thing that it is any form of "lower quality", it looks top of the line. The listed weight was accurate to about .5 and oz. Thanks HammockGear!

  • Fantastic warmth, functionality, and value

    by jswright2005 – 8th Jun 2017

    I will start by saying that I am a cold sleeper. I had a HG Incubator 0 underquilt already, and I still used it on a 40 degree campout this past first weekend in June and didn't even have to vent it. I figured that since I had a 0 degree UQ, pairing it with a 20 degree TQ would be a wise decision. I went with the sewn footbox, as I have read that really for quilts at this temp rating, you really don't generally want to sacrifice the heat you will lose by using snaps.

    I just have to say after my first two trips with this that I am blown away by it. The snap and shock cord at the head end that allow you to cinch it up around you and tuck it around your shoulders just like a sleeping bag are perfect. The shock cord snugs it up perfectly and tightly around your neck, trapping all the heat that you want.

    The quilt is stuffed with a generous amount of down. I frequently find myself just staring down at it in disbelief, because I can't believe the amount of loft and down that I received for this price. Hammock Gear really changed the game with this Econ line, and I hope they can keep it around at these prices for as long as possible, as this really is the best value out there. The quality is nothing short of my standard goose down Incubator. The Ion fabric feels wonderful against skin or cloths, and the sewn footbox is super comfortable and warm.

    All in all, this is my new favorite piece of gear. I will baby this thing until I ultimately wear it completely out - and I will promptly buy another quilt from Hammock Gear, as they have earned my business as a loyal customer for life!

  • Great top quilt

    by Will – 6th Jun 2017

    Three windy nights in BWCA temp in high 30s. Nice and warm for this cold sleeper, Highly recommend and matches well with my Incubator 20.

  • Great value couldnt be happier

    by Adam K. – 2nd Jun 2017

    Not very often do you buy something and think "this should have cost more"! I sure did with my econ Burrow as it's a fantastic over quilt and very reasonably priced. Heck ya i'm happy and highly recommend to anyone.

  • Lives up to all expectations you expect in a top quilt

    by Schooner – 1st Jun 2017

    I purchased this quilt specifically for use with my hammock, for a 17-day AT section hike. This quilt provided all the warmth and comfort as advertised. Not once was I cold, and even after tucking the quilt around my side, I still had plenty of room and not feel confined. A great buy!

  • first actual tooquilt

    by Unknown – 30th May 2017

    After I saw the Econ line I knew it was time to finally pick up an actual topquilt. Im 5'11 and ordered the 20 degree long/wide version with snap footbox. I don't plan on pushing the temps too far on it so I figured snaps offer better versatility. The quilt is made very well and is very warm. i did feel like the first time I unsnapped the footbox I was going to rip it, so I will just keep it snapped for the most part and not worry about it.

  • Everything I Wanted

    by Austin W. – 29th May 2017

    And for the right price! I'm in college so money is a little tight. The Econ 20 was exactly what I wanted in a quilt. Warm, lightweight, versatile, and it cost a fraction of competitors at no loss in quality. It's incredibly warm, and the Morroccan Blue ion is beautiful. I'm 5'10 and about 215lbs, and the standard length wide width is great for me.

  • My favorite quilt

    by Kory Hendershot – 26th May 2017

    I didn't know what to expect when ordering the Econ 20. So when I received this quilt, I was shocked by it's lightness and softness. After testing it out, I can say that it is impressively warm and comfortable.

  • What you have come to expect.

    by Chad Hamby – 22nd May 2017

    This top quilt is just what you have come to expect from Hammock Gear. It is beautiful, wonderfully made, and very warm. I have ordered several items from these guys and will order more in the future. Outstanding top quilt.

  • So very warm

    by Matt – 16th May 2017

    I have a 2year old Burrow 40 which I love. But there's a new Burrow in town, the Burrow Econ 20, damn this bugger is so warm.
    The whole package - printed stuff sack, printed storage sack and quilt scream high quality and value for money.

    The Ion fabric I'd say is my fav, so soft to the touch making comfortable. I actually prefer the Ion fabric here to the ripstop on my Burrow 40. It is heading into winter here in OZ and I have taken to using it on the couch on our cold night, dead useful.

    I think for me the ECON range is the best value here and the place I will go 1st in the future.

    Hammock Gear, you continue to up the quality each time I come back.

  • Best deal in quilts or sleeping bags

    by Mike – 16th May 2017

    You will pay this much for a down sleeping bag that weighs a pound more and doesn't keep you warm to the rating. Mine was 22oz without the stuff sack and kept my wife warm on the ground in the low 30s. My wife is such a cold sleeper and she said she was too warm at times. If you need a quilt and don't want to spend well over $200 this is the one.

  • Amazing

    by Brian – 12th May 2017

    I just spent two night in the boundary waters, I had temps around 30, and I stayed toasty warm both nights. The build quality is great, and I love how small it packs down. Customer service was top notch as well. Keep up the good work!

  • Great Price, Great Performance, Excellent Service!

    by Gerry – 8th May 2017

    Purchased two 20Deg Econ with snap footbox. I used mine in early April down to 30Deg in the snow and was perfectly warm. HG then rushed out one for my wife so we could make a trip two weeks later in 35Deg temps. She was nice and warm and she is typically a very cold sleeper. I used a 20deg underquilt and she used a 0deg underquilt both from HG. I cannot say enough good things, in fact we have four more quilts on order for my daughters!!

  • excellent service and quilt

    by Ryan – 29th Apr 2017

    I am a ground sleeper who was recently looking to upgrade my sleeping bag to something lighter and warmer. After doing some research, I decided that the burrow econ line of quilts was the best value I could find anywhere, so I ordered an econ 20. I was then amazed by the customer service---HG gave me helpful feedback over the phone, followed by extremely fast delivery so that I would receive my quilt in time for my spring backpacking trip. I never pushed its limits on my trip (lowest temps were in the upper 30s), but my econ 20 was plenty warm at those temps, and I generally sleep cold, so I am pleased with the quilt so far. In hindsight I wish I hadn't gotten the attachment cords (which I think were only $5 or so), as I doubt I'll ever use them.

  • Qualité, excellent prix et service.

    by C. St-Pierre – 28th Apr 2017

    Je savais que Hammock Gear fabriquait du matériel de qualité, mais là sa dépasse toutes mes attentes, quel beau travail. I will do buisness with Hammock Gear again.

  • Pefect "entry-level" TQ!

    by Dave G – 28th Apr 2017

    With the Econ line, HG has made it easy to enter the "specialized" gear sector of hammock camping. The wide TQ I ordered is so warm, comfortable and high quality that my girlfriend wants to use it as her everyday sofa throw blanket!

  • Simply stated - you need a set of quilts!

    by Sister barb – 25th Apr 2017

    This is my second quilt purchased from Hammock Gear... the first was the Incubator 20 under quilt,which I absolutely love and have used a number of times already. Most recently I purchased the Burrow Econ 20 to complete my quilt set. i am thrilled to bits with both pieces. I recently went hammock camping with my nephew, and had to borrow a quilt set from a friend who had them made by another competitor. As we pulled those quilts out of their stuff sacks tiny feathers came floating out too. This was not an issue with my Hammock Gear. Not a single feather fluttered free. Because of the drastic difference in price I did worry the top quilt might not meet the same standard of quality that I experienced with the under quilt. Let's address that right now... it is super soft, durable, craftsmanship is impeccable AND its super affordable! What are you waiting for? Order yours today and enjoy time away - communing with nature! It's an investment in self.

  • Great performance at a great price

    by Mark – 24th Apr 2017

    I own several other more expensive quilts and this one performs equally well in terms of size and feel

  • Highest Quality

    by JB – 20th Apr 2017

    This is a high quality product. It is very soft. It just feels agile. Very warm.

  • Great TQ at an Awesome Price!

    by Bryan – 19th Apr 2017

    This is a GREAT Top Quit at an awesome price! We purchased
    2 of these just prior to a spring trip and are VERY pleased with the quality and warmth. My wife is a cold sleeper and was very comfortable with this TQ and the Econ 20 UQ in low 20's with a fair amount of wind as well. Customer service was GREAT. Thank you Hammock Gear for a fantastic product! We will be purchasing additional quilts for our kids.
