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.


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 Karin on 21st Mar 2019

    I went on a backpacking trip this past weekend and the temps dropped to 27 degrees during the night. With proper thermal underwear and booties I was comfortable. The quilt stayed put with the accompanied sleep pad cords. I am a tall slender female at 6', a side sleeper and a tosser. It was perfect for me!

    Economy Burrow 20 deg wide

    Posted by on 6th Mar 2019

    First of all, company is great. I had an upcoming trip that was inside the lead time for delivery, but after I contacted HG they expedited the production/shipment so I was able to try it out it out on a 10 day bike touring trip. The temps never got cold enough to truly test the warmth capabilities of the quilt, but I can say it packs extremely small and at about 1.5 lbs was a joy to use for bike touring. I bought the clips to attach to sleeping pad but they kept falling off the quilt so I don't see myself using them. It's versatile and very warm as a blanket so expect it to be fine when the temps drop.

    Economy Burrow 30°--Great product and value

    Posted by Leo Yermo Adam on 4th Mar 2019

    Me, a ground camper Totally thrilled with Hammock Gear's Economy Burrow Quilt. I was in love with it as soon as I got it out of the box and bag (great storage bag, BTW). Workman ship is superb. Actually even better than I could have ever expected or imagined.
    I am now not only a fan but a customer.
    And I am sure a repeat customer that will recommended Hammock Gear, each and eveyy chance I get.
    Fair great price too.
    Thank you from the heat.

    Economy Burrow 10°F wide.

    Posted by Gary Allman on 3rd Mar 2019

    First off, the fabric feels wonderful and the loft is fantastic.

    I took mine out on a three-night trip with night time temps running from 21°-23°F, and it was wonderful (this is my target minimum temp. range) I'm really glad I opted for the wider quilt as I can wrap it around me nicely when side sleeping. It is so much lighter and compresses more than the 0°F sleeping bag I was previously using as a top quilt.

    The fabric seems to cope well with condensation, and I opted for a black liner aid drying by quickly absorbing the heat from any sunshine.

    Highly recommended, the quality of manufacturing is spot on.

    Great value!

    Posted by Jen on 28th Feb 2019

    I am really happy with the quality of this product, at this price point. Buying a quilt is such a big investment that often I'm tempted to just supplement the 20-degree quilt I already have by bringing an extra down throw or more clothing. Having a warmer quilt is a much more efficient solution, and at this price, I didn't feel too guilty about the purchase!

    Not great pad attachment system

    Posted by Alex on 26th Feb 2019

    For reference I purchased a 30 degree quilt in long and wide with a zipper footbox and 1 oz overfill, and alsothe pad attachment system.

    When I purchased it said it would be a 10 week lead time, but I got it in 6, which was a nice surprise.

    It did come in about .4 oz over spec (spec is 22.38, on my scale I show 22.75). This was close enough for me, and I like to think that was just extra down.

    There is a small ~1 inch section where the stitching gets a bit wonky and close to the edge. I think it will hold, but I’ll be keeping on eye on it. Otherwise the workmanship looks really good, and for the price point I am quite happy with the bag itself. Good loft, no clumping or dead spots, zippers and and cords work well. And seems to be true to temp rating in my limited use.

    My only real issue is with the pad attachment system, specifically the mitten hooks. They are meant to hook directly onto fabric loops, but there is a tiny gap in the hook and they slide off the loops quite easily. Of the six it seems there is always at least one that has come off. This is quite annoying and hard to put back on the loop (especially in the dark/cold). There are options to fix/replace the system, but it would have been nice to not have to do that.

    Overall 4 stars from me, with the attachment system being my only real concern.

    I got the 10 degree wide econ burrow with zipper footbox.

    Posted by Eric Bernhardt on 15th Feb 2019

    The quality of every product from HG is top notch and the customer support team is great! The only complaint I have is the length of time to get the custom products, but it is definately worth the wait. My 1st test was in a shelter on the AT when the temps dropped to the mid single digits. I am glad I went with the wide option for sleeping on the ground. I stayed warm all night! I did make a plug to seal the 1/2" hole in the footbox created by the cinch close design. I am looking forward to using with the Pheonix 0 degree underquilt i got last year!
