Hammock Gear Under Quilts

Down under quilts have proven to be, without question, the preferred choice for insulating the underside of the hammock. Due to the weight, compressibility and versatility, they outshine the alternatives by a landslide. Their thermal efficiency has allowed brave campers to push the boundaries of cold weather hammocking. Virtually every hammock camper has experienced - through his or her learning curve, the dreaded CBS, or "Cold Butt Syndrome". And virtually every owner of an under quilt has effectively learned how to avoid it. Once you have experienced a down under quilt, you will "never go back".

Hammock Gear provides a full-length under quilt - the Incubator Econ, and a 3/4-length under quilt - the Phoenix Econ. They are known by many to be the most effective on the market today. One of the primary reasons is this: the Incubator Econ and Phoenix Econ are the only commercial under quilts designed with a contour which mimics the shape a person makes when they are laying in a hammock. One of the added benefits of this construction technique is that it leaves a "flap" of fabric along the top and bottom of every down filled chamber. This extra fabric acts as a "floating baffle" which stabilizes the down and helps prevent its shifting. Another reason our UQ's are popular is this: they contain the ideal amount of down stability - the down stays put when it should, but the design allows for enough manual shifting of down when necessary.

 

All quilts are made to order.  Please inquire with sales@hammockgear.com for current lead times.

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

 

About the Incubator Econ 0˚

The ULTIMATE underquilt for guaranteed comfort at a low price... The Standard length Incubator Econ 0° is long enough to generously cover most hammock campers up to about 6’ 1”.  With 800 fill power DWR Treated Grey Duck Down, this underquilt will protect you in temperatures down to 0°. If you are looking for an underquilt that is hassle free and will allow you to enjoy your hammock for more months of the year, you have found it.

The Incubator Econ comes with 9 anatomically contoured, differential cut baffles that run the length of the quilt. One of the things this construction technique does is to greatly reduce the shifting of down that is sometimes more noticeable in quilts made with premium down.  This is one of the reasons Hammock Gear quilts are always 15-20% overstuffed. The differential cut, contoured baffles also provide the highest level of fit which is critical to keeping warm.  
The Incubator Econ comes complete with our state of the art shock-cord suspension system, storage sack, and a stuff sack.

Down

We utilize the finest 800 fill power, water-resistant grey duck down on the market in all of 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 under quilts 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.

 

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 an under 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. With under quilts, the more you experiment, the more you will dial this in.

  • Same excellent quality at a better price

    by AlaskaChad – 4th Apr 2017

    When the Econ versions of the Incubator and Burrow were released, I picked up a set without hesitation. I already own an original set purchased almost a year ago, and they perform every bit as well as advertised. An additional set for my wife has been planned for this year, and the cost savings of the Econ line without compromising quality of materials or craftsmanship, made the decision easy!

    Because I live in Alaska and can't afford a whole range of quilts, I chose 0* quilts. So far, I've used them in temperatures ranging from about 15 to 60* and slept very comfortably. It's easy to vent excess heat in warmer temps, or bundle up in them when it gets cold.

    I found that it takes a bit of research and practice to adjust the Incubator properly, but there's good information available. See Shug's video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xrGfSgt1w2E

    Everything I've purchased from Hammock Gear has been top quality and deserving of the high reputation these guys have in the hammock community.
