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.

    Econ Burrow 20 - Awesome

    Posted by Matthew G on 14th Jan 2019

    I purchased two wide Econ Burrow 20 with 1oz over fill for my wife and I to use with our inflatable sleeping pads. The Burrows are very well made and attached easily and securely to our pads. Very easy to adjust your sleeping temperature by opening the footbox and/or pushing the top down. It's very nice to have something that will keep you warm on a cold night and comfortable on a 68 degree night. Excellent customer service.

    30 ECON BURROW

    Posted by Randee on 5th Jan 2019

    I'm happy with it, it looks good, it feels good, it lofts well, and its very light. I went out hanging and the temp was 28 degrees, I feel I could have taken this down a lot more. I was also using the 30 ECON PHOENIX 3/4 under quilt.... I really like the quilts... Also the service was excellent.

    Fantastic Product and Service

    Posted by Ed Hajduk on 2nd Jan 2019

    I cannot write enough good things about these top quilts and the people that make them. It was a great experience ordering the quilts. Harry got back to me quickly and helped me customize the quilts with no effort on my part besides telling him what I wanted. I ordered five (5) quilts for me and my family and we are all ecstatic about their performance on our camping trips. Warm and comfortable. I liked them so much I just ordered under quilts for the family. Highly recommended.

    economy burrow

    Posted by flask ehrlenmeyer on 18th Dec 2018

    i bought two of these things, a 40 degree and a zero degree. i spent five weeks hopping up and down on one foot waiting for them to arrive. they did not come in time for my thanksgiving camping trip.

    but oh, man, when they arrived...

    i bought the zero one for winter camping, obviously. because it gets cold out there.

    i bought the 40 degree quilt for summer/ indoor use, because i sleep in my hammock year round, indoors and out and tossing a sleeping bag over me is just too much. too warm, too big, pours itself right out of the hammock because gravity.

    it took me a few nights to adjust to how light the 40 degree is, but i love it so much. i got the zippered footbox, which vents super nicely and it sleeps like a dream.

    and the zero degree? the day after it arrived i packed my gear and went camping, because that's what one does.

    it was a warm night and temps only got down in the 20s overnight, but the burrow was lofty and toasty and light. the sewn footbox kept my toes warm and comfy.

    i'm not getting younger. i have arthritis and lupus and being cold is a big deal for me. these quilts are GAME CHANGERS. now i can can carry less bulk, less weight and be comfortable.

    some of you kids may still be into roughing it, but i'm too old to be sleeping on the ground and too old to waste nights sleepless and cold.

    worth every penny, and worth every minute waiting.

    A solid quilt

    Posted by Matt on 5th Dec 2018

    I ended up buying the Econ 20 as a way to reduce my backpacking weight. I previously used a synthetic mummy bag. The upgrade was well worth it in the weight department, but I underestimated how warm a 20 degree quilt would be in the summertime. I think the 20 degree quilt would be best for spring and fall backpacking in my region. Oh well, I guess I'll just get a 40 degree one for summertime. Anyways, this quilt is a solid option for people that are on a budget and don't mind a little bit of extra weight compared to the Premium Burrow models.

    Quality construction, but falls short

    Posted by John on 30th Nov 2018

    I was extremely excited to receive my 20 degree Burrow Econ after weeks of waiting. The quilt exuded quality in craftsmanship, and lofted nicely. Eager to test it, I took it on a two night trip to the Superstition Mountains. The temperatures fell to below-freezing at night (evidenced by my solidly frozen water that I left out). The quilt definitely kept me alive, but I encountered a few problems:

    1) The down shifts far too easily while sleeping. I made sure to shake it out before going to sleep, and spread it evenly by hand. Still, at about 3 or 4 am, I awoke cold in the chest area. I felt the quilt in this area, and then shone my headlamp to confirm what I felt: the down had migrated (likely while rolling side to side a few times), so that there was almost none left in the chest region. I attempted to distribute the down while lying under the quilt, but it wasn't very effective. Quite a pain to deal with in below-freezing temperatures while sleeping. Since then, I've determined that the baffles simply aren't filled sufficiently to keep the down effectively distributed (even though the weight is up to spec, so it's properly filled according to HG's standards). I can definitely keep it mostly even by hand patting it before I sleep, but it shifts so easily that I'll have cold spots within hours.

    2) The pad-attachment system is a pain to set up, and really isn't super effective at preventing drafts if you roll around a lot. I roll like a Circle K hot dog while sleeping. Needless to say, I had constant drafts. The pad attachments will also come loose from time to time, making it even worse.

    Ultimately, this is a quality made product that could use some improvements, such as grid-style baffles and perhaps a bit more fill. I'll likely keep the quilt for temps in the 40s, but I'll be using my budget 800-fill mummy bag for anything below that.
