Phoenix Econ 30



Hammock Gear Under Quilts

Frequently Asked Questions

Down under quilts have proven to be, without question, the preferred choice for insulating the underside of the hammock. Due to super light 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, and a 3/4-length under quilt - the Phoenix. They are known by many to be the most effective on the market today. One of the primary reasons is this: the Incubator and Phoenix 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.


Quilt orders placed on or after 8/16/2018 have a lead time of approximately 4 weeks to ship.  Lead time is subject to change.

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


About the Phoenix Econ 30˚

With premium water resistant, 800 fill duck down, the 30°F Phoenix Econ is rated conservatively. The Phoenix Econ is the 'little brother' of the Incubator Econ, approximately 3/4 length. It's ideal for people who are pack size and weight conscious and want to shave those few extra ounces without sacrificing much in warmth or comfort. The Phoenix Econ helps you maximize every ounce by using goose down and with 9 differential baffles that run the length of the quilt, which helps keep the down from shifting, providing more warmth. (The baffles make this much warmer than similar quilts using "sewn-through" construction, allowing more loft).

The Phoenix Econ has a three dimensional, ergonomically shaped cut, which not only reduces weight, but provides a more secure wrap around the hammock, eliminating drafts. This underquilt (or UQ) is 3/4-length. This means it is designed to insulate you from your shoulders down to below your knees. Many hammoock campers will use a small piece of closed-cell-foam pad under their lower legs and feet since they typically require less insulation underneath to stay warm. The Phoenix Econ comes complete with a stuff sack, storage sack and everything needed to suspend the UQ from your favorite hammock.

Duck Down

Hammock Gear is committed to providing down products that meet RDS (Responsible Down Standard).  RDS certifies that geese and ducks are treated ethically (no live plucking or force feeding) and the down is traceable back to the source.  Both our Premium and Economy quilts use down that meets the Responsible Down Standard. For more information visit: http://responsibledown.org/

Compression Size

 The Stuff Sack we ship with this quilt is approximately 4.5 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.


Under Quilt Advantages

Chances are you are already aware of the advantages of down under quilts. To summarize: 

  • thermal efficiency
  • weight savings
  • volume savings
  • ease of use & adjustment (especially compared to a pad)
Phoenix Econ 30˚Standard
Fill Weight6.6 oz
Total Weight16.95 oz


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.


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 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.

  • amazing quality-to-price ratio

    by Unknown – 2nd Apr 2018

    The quality of this quilt struck me right away. Not sure how they are producing high quality quilts like this while keeping price low bit not complaining. The 30 degree is plenty warm down into the mid-to-high 20s. Im 6' and i only have my shins and feet uncovered by the 3/4 length.

  • Great beginner underquilt!

    by Pinestraw – 30th Jan 2018

    This is my first partial-length underquilt. Went with the Econ Phoenix 30 for the price point, and couldn't be happier with the price and quality build. Easy to hang and adjust. Watch Shug's videos if you need advice on adjusting underquilts! Will make your initial hang a lot easier. Once you get it dialed-in, it is great and you'll be a happy camper. Very warm...

  • Great underquilt, very warm

    by Unknown – 25th Nov 2017

    This underquilt is great quality for the price and weight. We ordered two for an AT trip. Hammock Gear got our quilts to us in time for the trip. Great customer service! We used the Phoenix Econ 30 on 25 and 30 degree nights with 30 degree top quilts. Very warm! The suspension was also very simple and worked well. Overall, this underquilt is a great value, and the weight is minimal. Thanks HG!

  • So Lite and So warm

    by Randee, Greenman – 14th Nov 2017

    When my Phoenix Econ 30 arrived I could not wait to test it out and I set it up on my Half-wit. It was about 42 out and I stay very warm. I can not wait and see how far I can take this down to. I am very pleased.

  • Secondary Suspension Really Works

    by DF – 8th Nov 2017

    Phoenix Econ 30:

    Shipping was as stated on the web site, in fact, it arrived a few days earlier than the stated minimum expected wait time. Quality of construction is excellent and the loft is what I expected for the temperature rating. I purchased this quilt because of the price and am more than pleased.

    Took a while to be able to evaluate - the weather warmed up the day it arrived... Finally cooled back down and have been able to use it on two, multi-day trips when the low temps were in the low 40's and mid 30's.

    On the first outing with my new quilt, I took my PLUQ as a secondary/backup layer - just in case. I set up my hammock with only the Phoenix as my under quilt and adjusted the suspension and end channels to what I thought was appropriate and was fast asleep. As the night grew colder, I woke up with cold spots on my back and shoulders. I gave the secondary suspension shock cording a tug on all four corners and drew the quilt up a little more snugly. Could feel the warmth return in just seconds. No more cold spots and I slept the rest of the night through (and the second night) in total comfort. Upon checking the temperature in the morning, it showed a low of 43 degrees.

    On my second outing of 3 nights, I adjusted the suspension, giving an extra tug to the secondary suspension, just to be sure. Slept through all three nights in great comfort, with no cold spots whatsoever. Lowest temps were in the mid 30's.

    This was my first down quilt and my first purchase from HG. After my experience with my new under quilt being so pleasant, I bought the Burrow Econ 20 top quilt. Temperatures have stayed mild this Fall and I have not had the chance to evaluate it, yet.

    Highly recommend.

  • Wonderful product at a wonderful price

    by Dominique – 25th Oct 2017

    I can’t express how happy I was when I discovered the Econ line. Top notch quality at an affordable price. I’ve had the privilege of testing this product on one trip & it made a world of difference. It packs down so small & provides ample warmth in the low 40’s & I don’t doubt that it would work well below its temperature rating.

  • Easy to Use

    by Adam – 17th Jul 2017

    This couldn't have been easier to set up. Once i figured out that keeping the ends sinched tight i was sleeping comfortably without it moving on me (I'm a rolling sleeper"

    I'm going to be ordering a top quilt here now too. Loved how small it got in the stuff sack.

  • Phoenix econ 30

    by Unknown – 10th Jul 2017

    Wonderful service and amazing product. Can't recommend enough!

  • Perfect and what a great deal

    by Oliver W – 7th Jun 2017

    Beyond pleased with this purchase, anyone not sure of buying an Econ line can rest at ease. There is nothing cheap about this line. Quality and craftsmanship are there, from the great storage bag to the well-designed stuff sack, to the amazing fabric and the warmth and ease of set up! For a single full-time dad that isn't made of money, this line has everything I could ask for. And the customer service is AMAZING too.

  • No brainer installation, warm all night

    by RichieMac – 25th May 2017

    Parts of this review copied from my review of the Econ Burrow 30.

    Just spent my first night out in the woods with my new Econ Phoenix 30 (and Econ Burrow 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.

    I waffled a bit over the Phoenix vs the Incubator, and if the 3/4 length would be long enough. In the end, for both financial and packability reasons, I went with the Phoenix. Glad I did. I had a Dutchware sit pad under my feet, but even when it came out from under I didn't really get cold feet.

    HammockGear just gets it right. Nice quality stuffsack AND a big roomy storage bag. Installing on my hammock was as easy as clipping the suspension on either end of my hammock with the included carabiners and cinching up the draft collars a little. I did just receive some ridgeline quilt hooks from Dutch, not sure I need them. 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.

  • Top Notch!

    by Brad – 14th May 2017

    I bought this underquilt for my son and we could not be happier. This is my second underquilt purchase from this gang of hammock warmth and comfort professionals, and can't say enough good about the customer service. If you have a special need, they will do all they can for you. Outstanding products to boot!

  • It's a wrap!

    by Mountainhanger – 14th Apr 2017

    With this econ line I'm all in with hammock gear . I prefer wider underquilt because of my larger then the average bear girth, but the Phoenix works just fine! Had the 30 degree down to mid 30's and stayed comfy warm. Now I have to save up for a 10 degree set, think I'll go with the incubator on that one..good job to all at hammock gear

  • Initial Review (unboxing and nap)

    by Dave – 13th Apr 2017

    A person comes to expect the quality present from a cottage vendor like Hammock Gear. My Phoenix Econ 30 arrived today and I set up the 12 footer in the garage to take a swift snooze. The ion fabric has a different feel than the ultra light low denier fabrics. It feels nice and the weave is tight. All of the seams are perfect. No loose threads or thread over run. Suspension system is highly adjustable and easy to use. I like the bigger s biners and additional tabs along the sides for attaching to the ridgeline. This UQ beats the socks off everything. Money well spent!
