Premium Quilts

We utilize the finest 850 and 950 fill power, water-resistant goose down on the market in all of our Premium Quilts. It is tested and certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory and is RDS Certified.

Premium Quilt Fabric

All Premium Hammock Gear quilts are made of premium nylon fabric. All of our premium fabrics are specifically designed ripstop nylon (except for 10D taffeta) which is manufactured for Hammock Gear. We offer both 10 and 15 denier weights with certain colors only available in one or the other. 10 Denier (10D) weighs 0.67oz/square yard while 15 Denier (15D) weighs 0.90 oz/square yard.  15 Denier (15D) adds approximately 0.75 oz to final weight, per shell. It has a Durable Water Resistant (DWR) finish. The DWR not only improves the water resistance of our premium fabric, it also enhances the fabric by improving overall strength, tightening the weave and thus increasing its down-proofness. Calendaring of the fabric further enhances the down-proofness of the quilt.

Baffles

All of our quilts make use of baffle (also known as "box baffle") construction. This means that the seams between the down-filled chambers are not sewn through, but instead consist of a fabric wall about 1.5 to 3.5 inches tall, depending on the model.

Temperature Ratings

At Hammock Gear, we use temperature ratings which are very conservative. Compare them in the marketplace and you will agree. Here is a point we wish to emphasize: the first and most important step you must take when choosing a quilt by temperature is to Know Thyself. Are you a Cold sleeper, a Warm sleeper, or maybe a Really Warm sleeper? Factor this into your selection process and you will be much better off.

Footbox

Two options are available: Sewn footbox or Zipper Footbox. The sewn option is a permanent footbox approximately 20 inches long, measured from the bottom. A sewn footbox is fully enclosed/fully insulated, and thus allows no cold spots. It is recommended for 0° - 20° temps. The Zipper version allows the quilt to be fully opened and to lie flat. It is recommended for temps above 20°. When closed the zipper version, which has a drawcord closure, has an opening of approximately 1/2 inch. Some users, depending on conditions/temps, will use a clothing item or small piece of foam pad to plug this hole. Many HG customers enjoy using their quilts in the home, and love the versatility of using the quilt “blanket style” or as a “throw”, and the zipper version fits the bill.

Taper

Our top quilts are built with a standard Half-Taper design. Custom work is available if you have different requirements.

Cord Loops

Quilts come standard with attachment cord loops (these can be omitted by request).

 

 

Economy Quilts 

We utilize the finest 800 fill power, water-resistant duck down on the market in our Economy Quilts. It is tested and certified by the International Down and Feather Testing Laboratory and is RDS Certified.

Economy Fabric

All Economy Quilts are made of 20 Denier fabric. All Economy Fabric is specifically designed nylon taffeta which is manufactured for Hammock Gear. This material is a 20 Denier nylon taffeta with a DWR (durable water resistant) coating, which makes it great fabric for lightweight quilts. Weight is 1.1 oz / yd²

Baffles

All of our quilts make use of baffle (also known as "box baffle") construction. This means that the seams between the down-filled chambers are not sewn through, but instead consist of a fabric wall about .75 to 3 inches tall, depending on the model.
