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 12/5/2018 have a lead time of approximately 10 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

With premium water resistant, 800 fill duck down, the Economy Phoenix is rated conservatively. 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.

    My Go-To UQ for most of the year

    Posted by Gavain McDonald on 22nd Oct 2018

    My Econ Phoenix 40 is my go-to UQ for most of the cooler months. I have two UQs, and both are from Hammock Gear. My other is an Econ Incubator 20 for the truly cold times of year. It doesn't get as much use, but it's just right for when I need it.

    I was initially a little concerned when I first hung the Econ Phoenix 40, because it just didn't look like there would be enough down to fill the baffles, but my concerns were quickly settled once the UQ lofted up. For a 40 degree UQ, you don't need a ton of insulation, but the quilt fills out nicely and the tubes all loft up well. I've taken this quilt down to the mid 30s without losing any comfort. At 6'2" tall, this 3/4 UQ works well for me. I stick a sit pad in my footbox when it gets a little cooler out and everything is copacetic. This is a great option to cut down on some weight while still maintaining a comfortable level of insulation for warmth.

    The price point on these Econ quilts is amazing. There isn't another product on the market with this kind of quality for this price point. If you're new to hammocking or just can't part with the dollars it takes to get goose down products, the Econ line is a great option.

    The design, construction and performance of my Econ Phoenix 40 has never disappointed. I get asked about it all the time by other hikers and campers. As a scout leader, our monthly campouts are almost always a window for more inquiries into my setup ... especially with this 3/4 quilt. I get a kick out of showing my HG gear off to folks who are interested in hammocking or who use other products. It's always fun to gear hound with people and the HG products are always a great topic for discussion.

    I'm a big fan. If I ever need to replace any of my quilts, HG is the first place I'll go.

    Great quality at a great price!

    Posted by Jere Moore on 10th Oct 2018

    My first impression is great quality, as usual. The only question I might have at this point is, for the 40 degree version, are the down tubes a bit too large for the amount of down in this version. I will know more when I have used it for a while.

    Posted by Unknown on 2nd Oct 2018

    Took this quilt to havasue falls this weekend and it is the perfect hiking and packing quilt. It got cool at night and this was just what I needed. Exited to use it in Illinois this fall and part of the winter.

    Amazing underquilt!

    Posted by John E. on 24th Sep 2018

    My family now has 4 Phoenix underquilts and we are extremely happy with them. I can’t tell a difference between the Econ and the regular personally as we have a 2 of each. I am 6 foot tall and had wondered how it well it would work for me keeping my feet and/or head warm in below freezing temps. I’m happy to say that with an inflatable pillow and my sit pad under my feet I have slept comfortably down into the low 30’s. I don’t feel the need for a longer quilt and am happy with the weight savings.
    Also I can’t say enough about Hommock Gear as a company. They have excellent customer service! They really care about their customers.

    great value! keeps you warm!

    Posted by rabbit7278 on 19th Sep 2018

    I used this on a few occasions now and am very happy with how warm it kept me. It’s well made, packable, and easy to use. No problems getting it snug. I like the 3/4 length- my feet usually don’t need to be insulated but on the rare occasion they do get a bit chilled, I just use my sit pad underneath them. This way I have options depending on the temperature.
    The price is great and the quality is awesome!

    excellent quality

    Posted by Blithe Turtle on 3rd Sep 2018

    Just tested on white top mountain VA with a low temperature of 59 degrees and 98% humidity. I was cradled by a barrier of super toasty warmth, plus, no signs of wetness on the bag in the a.m. looking forward to Linville Gorge at the end of September with some cooler temps in the 40s. Thanks HG!

    Once again, you don’t disappoint

    Posted by Lisa Jimenez-Ray on 25th Aug 2018

    Wow. You guys have quality standards that only come from serious integrity. From stitching to final packaging your products are, in my opinion, a cut above. I literally took my underquilt from box to a week on trail. Thank goodness it was ready to hang with just minor adjustments . I have an underquilt that was almost three times the cost, but the finer details don’t compare. You rock HG!
