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

The 30° Burrow Econ is the perfect solution for staying warm in a hammock or on the ground. With a conservative rating of 30°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).

  • Best company

    by Ezra – 22nd Jul 2017

    You reached the best place to buy a quilt: best product, light and lowest price. In addition, you have Garry the most honest, helpful, generous and nice guy.
    This product is made professionally, thought about all details and angels. The partitions are with a wall that will keep you warm. I bought 4 of them and I chose 4 colours so each family member will recognise his.

  • Works well for the ground too

    by Unknown – 28th Jun 2017

    Just got back from a week long camping trip around Iceland. This was my first outing with the Burrow Econ 30 or with any quilt for that matter. I'm 6'1" 230lbs and ordered regular length/ wide width with a sewn footbox. Wide was recommended for tent use and I'm really glad I listened to that advice. I was able to tuck the sides under me on a particularly windy night to combat drafts, and it was long enough to duck my head in if I curled up a bit. The burrow Econ is a really well made product, I'm very happy with my purchase and looking forward to many more adventures with my HG quilts!

  • Excellent Quilt

    by Mark H – 21st Jun 2017

    Let me start off first saying, this is not my first Hammock Gear quilt purchase. In the past year, I have bought 2 Econ Phoenix 20 degree underquilts, a Burrow 40 degree, a Burrow 20 degree, and Econ Burrow 30 degree (I had to outfit myself and my son). All the products I have purchase both on the Econ side and the regular are of great quality. The Burrow 30 is made of great materials, it packs down very compact and is pretty light-weight. I love the snap with the draw string to snug up the top around your chin to keep out any draft. I got the burrow in the Dark Olive color which looks great! All my top quilts have the sewn-in bottom which creates a very comfortable foot box. If you’re on the fence about this quilt, don’t be! It is a steal of a deal and a solid piece of equipment.

  • Great product

    by Dave J – 14th Jun 2017

    Couldn't be happier with Econ Burrow 30. Excellent quality at an affordable price. I will be buying more HG products, highly recommend them.

  • Amazing quality and craftsmanship

    by Oliver W – 7th Jun 2017

    I am blown away that this is an Econ line Quilt. From the beautiful storage bag to the little loop on the stuff sack that makes it easy to pull out the quilt. Everything is the quality craftsmanship that HG is known for and why I came to you to buy what keeps me warm in the woods. I have only had it down to 50 degrees but I can tell I would be warm below 30 degrees. What a great quilt!

  • Beautifully made, and toasty warm

    by RichieMac – 25th May 2017

    First of all, Moroccan Blue is just beautiful. Had to be said.

    Just spent my first night out in the woods with my new Econ Burrow 30 (and Econ Phoenix 30). Was expecting lows in the low 50s, but was colder than expected. When I checked my thermometer at 5:30 AM it showed about 42°. Not sure how cold it got. Was just wearing long underwear tops and bottoms, and wool socks. With the Burrow over me and the Phoenix under me I never felt cold at all. Just toasty warm. I had brought my hooded puffy jacket just in case, but never took it out of my pack.

    HammockGear just gets it right. Nice quality stuffsack AND a big roomy storage bag. Love the snap footbox and snapping the collar and dropping it over my head. Maybe the best part is the nearly 3.5 lbs and a bunch of bulk I'm not carrying vs. the synthetic quilts I had that will now be loaners. Nah, the best part is how toasty warm I was all night.

  • Worked perfectly. Up to snuff! Considering buying another.

    by David B. – 22nd May 2017

    Bought this quilt and a Phoenix 30 for my father. He was previously using a lot heavier and not warm-at-all uq/q combo. We immediately took it out to the State forest behind my residence and camped overnight. He loved them! He can't get over the quality of the build. The turn-time was as-expected and the build quality is prime. I had requested vertical baffles and they did it - no questions asked. The quilt and UQ lofted beautifully and not a shiver was to be had.

  • Econ Burrow 30

    by Andrew – 20th May 2017

    I was interested in a Burrow 30 but when I saw the Econ Burrow 30 I had to jump at the chance, not only for the price but because of HG reputation. I used my Econ Burrow 30 and an Incubator Econ 30 on a low 30 degree night and I was warm from the time I got into the hammock until the morning when I got out. I could not be happier with my purchase. HG was very helpful with their customer service and I was very impressed with them. I would recommend this product to anyone who is into hammock camping. Thank you Hammock Gear!

    Special shout out to Shug for introducing me to hammock gear!

  • Another great Hammock Gear prudict

    by JW – 16th May 2017

    What else can i say. I own about a dozen or so top/under quilts and this is yet another great product. Great price and loft!!!

  • Great piece of equipment

    by Soldo – 15th May 2017

    This quilt performed above and beyond expectations. Went up to the White Mountains in New Hampshire and the temperature dropped quite a bit lower than expected. I woke up to about 12 inches of snow and a temperature reading of 30 degrees F and I was very warm combined with the 30 degree phoenix under quilt. Great job to all at Hammock gear! I will be buying from these guys again!

  • Awesome Fabric, Incredible Price

    by Tyrell Wall – 10th May 2017

    I purchased an Econ Burrow with a 30 degree rating. I'll be honest, if they were the same price as the traditional Burrow I'd still buy the Econ version and take the weight penalty because I love the feel of the fabric. Granted I haven't had the quilt long enough to test multiple weather conditions but so far it's fantastic. My last trip out had temps in the mid 40's and I was venting/sweating. Based on that I think the temperature rating is pretty conservative. I have full confidence I can take this quilt down to freezing temps without any issue. Great product, great price. I don't know how they are keeping up with demand.

  • What a Great TQ!!!

    by Wayne Corey – 2nd May 2017

    This has got to be the best TQ for the money ever. I got the Burrow Econ 30. Camped out in low 40s and rain under a tarp and it did great. i am confident it will handle even colder weather. Great material. Professional workmanship. A fine high quality TQ at a low budget price. Thanks hammock Gear!

  • Great Spring/Fall TQ

    by Clay – 26th Apr 2017

    Wonderful TQ that was very comfortable in it's first use into the low 40's...Would use even lower into the upper 30's if needed. Was paired with Econ 40 Incubator.

  • Price might be low but quality isn't

    by Ross Tapp – 25th Apr 2017

    I couldn't resist, Burrow Econ 30, the price was just too good and will work great in the shoulder seasons when my Burrow 0 is just too much insulation., They certainly didn't lower their standards with the price, it's still the same great Hammock Gear quality found in all their products. I found the Ion 1.1 fabric soft on the skin and supple, after spending a night out in near freezing temps with no tarp and 20 mph gusts, it seemed to do an amazing job of blocking the wind. Extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend this quilt to all but those looking to shave grams, for them I would recommend that they pay the premium and opt for the regular Burrow with the Argon 67 fabric.

  • greatest bang for your buck

    by ground dweller – 22nd Apr 2017

    This thing is awesome for the price. Build quality is phanominal, and backs down nicely with the included sack. I ordered the snap foot box , which makes this extremely versitil. I am 6' and weigh 250#, with broad shoulders. I went with the regular length, wide width and it fits perfectly .
