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/
This quilt is in stock and will ship approximately 2-3 business days after an order is placed.
All of our quilts ship with a 24" x 36" Storage Sack and Stuff Sack for backpacking.
About the Burrow 40˚
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, vertical torso baffles, foot box and a cinched top. Comes complete with a stuff sack and storage bag.
With premium quality, water resistant, 850 fill-power goose down, the 40° Burrow is just the thing to keep you warm on the chilly summer nights.
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/
The Stuff Sack we ship with this quilt is approximately 4.5 liters, but due to the nature of goose 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.
