Hammock Gear Under Quilts

Product Specs

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 4/22/19 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 Economy Phoenix

Our Economy Phoenix series utilizes downproof 1.1 oz / yd² (20D) Calendared Nylon Taffeta fabric and 800 fill power DWR Treated Grey Duck Down. The Economy Phoenix is the 'little brother' of the Economy Incubator, 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 Economy Phoenix 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 Economy Phoenix 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.

    EXCELLENT Upgrade for my Hammock Kit

    Posted by Josh on 17th Apr 2019

    I took the plunge on a down underquilt after almost 2 years hammocking with an air pad (REI Flash) and doublenest hammock (ENO). I had resisted because it seems like all UQs rated for colder weather cost $300+. Once a friend introduced me to HammockGear, the Economy Phoenix at 30 degF has proven to be an incredible value at <$100.

    I've used the UQ with overnight temps down to ~25F with an REI Radiant 20F sleeping bag and silk liner (plus clothes/hat). I'm shorter at about 5'6" which helps the 3/4-length Phoenix cover up over my shoulders and down to my calves, staying in place well throughout the night. With a down jacket zipped around the footbox and/or foam sit pad under my feet, I was toasty. Very comfy on a night with a ~45F low as well with similar setup. Looking forward to summer use with a cheap light top quilt instead of sleeping bag.

    I love no longer having to think about the air pad slipping around and exposing part of my underside to the cold. I can toss around or sleep on my side as desired. The UQ has also allowed me to pack my much lighter and more compact single nest hammock (ENO Sub7), which wasn't really large enough to work with the pad. The UQ impressively packs down to about the size of a football (perfect fit in Sea to Summit Ultra Sil 3.3L compression sack). All of this compactness has been critical to improving my bikepacking setup. This UQ is super warm, super light, packs well, a breeze to set up, makes my whole kit better, and is an incredible value. Go for it!

    Excellent product

    Posted by Rosa Ponce de Leon on 15th Apr 2019

    I tested out my new phenix on a windy night in the 40s, at 7k+ elevation and it held up great. I'm 5'06 and I had plenty of coverage. I placed a sit pad in the foot box of my top quilt, under my feet and my zipped up puffy jacket with the sleeves pulled in and covering the neck hole and my feet were never cold. I think I can get away without the foot pad in the future. There were only a few times when I felt cold pockets but the adjustments are so well designed and easy to maneuver, that I was able to fix the gaps with ease without getting out of the hammock. I live in So Cal and the 30 degree with no extra fill is perfect. We have mostly dry weather and I don't do winter camping. I love this product for the price and quality. I used this with the economy burrow top quilt and Yukon hammock.

    Received and used my new Phoenix UQ. Very well thought out and put together. It was recommended to me by an expert as one of the best values. Liked it so well I bought one for my wife!

    I have purchased a number of incubators. Wanted a lighter, smaller uq for summer. The Economy Phoenix fits the bill perfectly! Great quality. Great value. Great company!
