About the Economy Burrow

The Economy Burrow top quilt works well for ground sleepers (make sure you order the wide width) and hammock sleepers alike.  With a Economy Burrow you can rest assured that when those temperatures plummet, you will remain toasty warm.  Our top quilts feature a half taper design and vertical torso baffles, which helps to make sure you have proper side coverage to your hips, while also saving a little bit of weight due to the tapered footbox.  We have two options for foot boxes, zipper and sewn.  The zipper footbox is more versatile, allowing you to unzip 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.  Our Economy Burrow is 15-20% overfilled to help minimize down migration and prolong the loft of the down over time and use.


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.

    Economy Burrow

    Posted by Pippi on 18th Jul 2019

    I love it! I love everything about it! I bought the 30° economy top quilt. I already own a high-quality 10° sleeping bag, but I wanted something lighter for summer months. I am surprised at the quality of this bag for the price. This is my first quilt and I’m glad I chose the zipper foot box with the drawstring. I am pleased with the quality of the fill in the fabric. The color blue turned out much better than I expected, almost a teal color. The weight turned to be spot on at 19 ounces. Overall, very impressive, with a very impressive price.

    Econ. Burrow Quilt

    Posted by Lance Smith on 18th Jul 2019

    I have used the quilt 2 nights. The quilt was great. It performed well. Temps were well above the rating I purchased. The only issue I had is with the pad attachments. They kept coming off the gros grain loops and the elastic cordage. I am going to use some duct tape to hopefully keep them attached next trip. Overall, very satisfied with the purchase and the price.

    Econ Burrow 20°F Wide, Sewn Footbox

    Posted by Nathan on 17th Jul 2019

    I spent about six months researching and pondering over top quilts and finally decided on what I believe to be the perfect quilt to suit my needs. I decided on a sewn footbox because I wanted guaranteed warm toes with no fuss and the wide version to minimize drafts whether I'm in my hammock or on the ground. I just spent a week in west Texas in the Davis Mountains in July with temps between 60° and 90°F. My new 20°F quilt was perfect in the early morning hours to knock the chill off of me in combination with a 0°F Wooki under quilt (overkill I know - but I can only afford one set of quilts). My main concern with deciding on quilts was to have a wide temperature range from below freezing to the point that it becomes too hot for any quilts (I did spend one night in central Texas and used no insulation). The Burrow was easy to have in my hammock for the inevitable morning chill in the mountains. It was easy to pull on and off to regulate my temperature as needed. I was never too hot or annoying that the quilt was in the hammock with me. Below about 75°F the 20° Burrow was wonderful. I am also very confident after reading all the reviews that I will be comfortable all the way down to 20° with regular cold weather sleeping clothes, but I won't know for sure for several more months. The customer service has been excellent. Harry has answered many questions for me and always responds quickly. The construction and materials of my quilt are excellent. There are even triangle D-rings on the grosgrain loops along the edges of the quilt that I wasn't expecting. I've heard some people say that duck down can have an odor, but my quilt had no odor. My 850 fill goose down Warbonnet Wooki actually had a slight odor that quickly dissipated. The HG duck down was totally odor free from day one. I am very happy with my purchase
    and look forward to many years of reliable use from it. I can't wait for winter to test the lower limits of my quilt! If your budget is limited and you want a quilt that will last many years (the Econ quilt has more durable fabric than 'premium' quilts) then the Econ Burrow 20°F is an excellent choice. And I don't regret the sewn footbox one bit even in warm temperatures. Thanks Hammock Gear!!

    No reason not to try a quilt!

    Posted by Albert on 15th Jul 2019

    This is my first quilt and it is under $200! I got the 30F, standard length, wide, zippered footbox, in orange color. I have not used it in temperature approaching the rating but hope to do so in the fall. Right now it's a cool summer in the Pacific Northwest. The quilt worked great (although the attachment system did not) in 50F nightitme temperatures. I was plenty warm, so much so that I did not need to cinch up the collar. At this price, it will allow me to try out a quilt and see what I like and dislike about quilts. It's a deal you shouldn't pass up if you are thinking of switching to a quilt from a traditional sleeping bag.

    Great quilt, minimal problems

    Posted by Brandon on 10th Jul 2019

    I recently purchased two of these quilts (20* rating) for my wife and I. I'm not a super experienced backpacker, and have only taken them on one two-night trip so far. Weather was windy and dropped to around 40* at night and the bags did well in combination with our insulated pads (Big Agnes Insulated Air Core ultra and Q-Core SLX). We wore base layers and socks, and did not attach the quilts to the pads.
    The only issues I've had thus far are in the stitching. There was a broken thread in my wife's bag at the top seam - made about a 1.5 cm hole. I plan to stitch this up. There are also some loops at the bottom of the stuff sacks, one of which ripped off when pulled. That was a quick easy fix.
    I'd recommend these quilts if you're on a budget and don't mind inspecting things to make sure you don't have to stitch anything up.

    40F Economy Burrow

    Posted by Frank on 8th Jul 2019

    I bought this quilt in anticipation of mild temperatures on the PCT starting at Donner Summit in early July 2019. Overall the temperatures were lower than average and there was still quite a bit of snow on the ground. Our first night was in the low 30s but I slept in light thermals and my insulated jacket and was never cold. The next few nights were in the low 40s, and wearing just the thermals the quilt kept me nice and warm. I was able to use my jacket as a pillow. The pad strap mitten hooks unhooked from the loops on the quilt a few times -- not sure if I was doing something wrong. It was a non-factor nevertheless. Overall very pleased with my purchase, and especially happy to shave about 7 oz. off my base weight by leaving my 20F quilt at home. I'm 6'2" and glad I bought the long/wide.

    Economy Burrow overquilt w/zipper and cinched foot closure.

    Posted by Michael on 4th Jul 2019

    Quality workmanship. Kept me warm and comfortable on my recent BWCA trip in late June. (temps: upper 50's) and would trust performance into the 40's easily.

    Highly recommended! Really great top quilts!

    Posted by Andrzej on 3rd Jul 2019

    HG top quilts are warm and comfortable. For now I got 40F version only . I tested it together with 40 under quilt. Never slept better. Warm down, soft and nice to touch fabric. I had to pay +25% because of import VAT and custom duties (I'm in Europe) but it was a great choice compare to local overpriced brands of doubtful quality.

    And I'm very happy with HG service. I had a small technical problem with my order and also I asked them to change my order after the payment and the response was fast and very helpful.

    Great Customer Service

    Posted by David King on 1st Jul 2019

    I had a trip coming up in 2 weeks. Internet said allow 3 weeks for delivery. I called and spoke to someone and they said order it, call them with the order number and they would make sure it got to me on time. They followed up and I got it in time. Very pleased with the personal touch. On my trip, it worked great. I am claustrophobic so a mummy bag wont work. This gave me the freedom I needed to feel great.
