About the Burrow Econ 50°

The Burrow Econ top quilt works well for ground sleepers (make sure you order the wide width) and hammock sleepers alike.  With a comfort rating of 50° you can rest assured that when those temperatures plummet, you will remain toasty warm.  The Burrow Econ 50 features a full taper design, which helps to save a little bit of weight, and should be used only on warm nights.  We have two options for foot boxes, snap and sewn.  The snap footbox is more versatile, allowing you to unsnap and lay the quilt out flat.  The sewn footbox should be utilized if you only camp in cold weather, and don’t need to vent the top quilt.  Each top quilt comes standard with grosgrain loops along the sides of the quilt to allow ease of attaching our Ground Pad Attachment Kit, which comes in handy if you sleep on an insulated pad.

 

Compression / Pack Size

The Stuff Sack we ship with this quilt is approximately 8.5 liters in volume, but due to the nature of duck down, it can be compressed further with an aftermarket compression sack.  We do not recommend keeping the quilt compressed for more than 24 hours, and should be stored in the provided cotton storage bag, when not in use.

*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. Indicated weights are approximates. Weights can change based on the fabric weight and inconsistencies in the fabrics themselves.

 


Down

We utilize the finest 800 fill power, water-resistant duck down on the market in all of our 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 and interior color from our current stock. See fabric table above for additional details.

 

Taper

Our Burrow 50 top quilt is built with a Full Taper design. This means that the width starts to taper at the head end of the quilt and ends with a 40 inch wide footbox when the quilt is unsnapped and open. Custom work is available if you have different requirements.

 

Cord Loops

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

    Very lightweight, very comfortable. I live in Ga., because of Hurricane Irma had to change plans from Cumberland Is. to Huntington Beach, SC and it is so warm that I barely used it to cover myself in the wee morning hours and only for short durations. My feeling is that it can definetly handle temps below 50 degrees.
