Hammock Gear Under Quilts

Product Specs

Frequently Asked Questions

Goose 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 Premium Phoenix

With premium water resistant, 850 fill power or 950 fill power goose down, the Premium Phoenix is rated conservatively. The Phoenix is the 'little brother' of the 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 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 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 comes complete with a stuff sack and everything needed to suspend the UQ from your favorite hammock.

 

Goose 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.

    Total Game Changer

    Posted by DDVW on 23rd Jul 2018

    I’ve been using a variety of Hammocks over the years- ENO, Hammock Bliss, and of course Hennessy (the best). I was always annoyed by the complication and inefficiency of using a z-lite (or Hennessy) sleeping pad in my hammock, although the ENO with a pocket for the pad worked a little better.

    So, this past week I went to Camp Rock Enon with a cheap Chinese made Hammock, and woke to that familiar chill beneath me around 3am.

    I retrieved my under-quilt from its stuff-sack (lighter and more compact than pad I’ve ever tried), clipped it on, and DING! Like magic (instantly) the chill beneath me was gone. I spent the remainder of the nights totally comfortable with just a Thermorest blanket in the hammock with me.

    These were 50 degree nights, but I have little doubt this under quilt is the final solution to the bottom chill. It’s pricy, but it is SO worth every penny!

    Just right

    Posted by Michael on 11th May 2018

    For reference, I'm 6'2", 280. Fluffy, you might say.

    This underquit is perfectly sized. It wraps around your shoulders just right, and runs down to just under my knees. I'm a warm sleeper, but even at 45 degrees, this is warm but not stifling. Together with my 30 degree HG top quilt, I find my body temp management is perfect, I sleep like a baby.

    Buy this under quilt. You won't regret it.

    Posted by Robert on 17th Dec 2017

    The phoenix 30 is a great size. Im a fairly broad guy and it keeps my shoulders warm. Its super light and well constructed. The suspension is super easy. I couldn't be happier.

    I wish I had known..............

    Posted by DC Bray on 3rd Dec 2017

    I have for years used another popular hammock underquilt made by the same company that makes hammocks. I LOVE those hammocks but I had a problem with their underquilt always slipping to one side in the middle of the night. Freezing, I'd get up several times in the night to adjust the UQ. Then I switched to Hammock Gear. WHAT RELIEF! The extra few inches of width, the adjustable collar, and the awesome suspension system ended the UQ slippage during the night!!! The quality of the fabric and baffles were even more wind-proof for the underside. I stay so roasty-toasty warm that I don't have to carry as much night layers of clothes so I've lightened my pack, too! Also, being able to personalize your gear with color choices makes identifying each other's gear easier when packing for the family. I'm now replacing all my past UQs with Hammock Gear UQs!

    Quality and Value

    Posted by Claudia Wilson/Slack Packhiker/Lucy on the trail on 14th Mar 2017

    HG offers high quality and gear that is value priced. The construction of my 0 degree Phoenix is flawless. It's a combo of beauty and function. Puffy down snugged up against the hammock promises and delivers warmth and comfort.

    Additionally, HG is completely tuned into customer satisfaction on all fronts. They do take care of business, earnestly.

    Love these guys and their quilts

    amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Posted by juju on 14th Mar 2016

    I can't say enough good things about this quilt, Phoenix 40+. It is my first time dealing with hammock gear and it won't be my last. I ordered my quilt with one ounce of overstuff. I tried it out last week on an overnighter in the otter creek wilderness with nighttime temps a little cooler than we were expecting, 29f, it did great. I had a little more clothes on but my only cold spots were on my front side. Now I'll be ordering a top quilt so that won't happen again. The service was amazing.

    UL and peaceful sleep

    Posted by Hiker Mike on 20th Jan 2016

    Paired with the Burrow 20 for my first night out slept in 27 degrees. So much better sleep than trying to old sleeping pad in a hammock. Had them customize for me and add some length in lieu of some width to fit my 6'4" thin frame and my sub7 eno hammock. I got more REM sleep that night than I normally do in two nights at home according to my watch. The HG products with the rest of my sleep system have my base pack weight under 11lb for winter backpacking.
