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. Our Economy Burrow is 15-20% overfilled to help minimize down migration and prolong the loft of the down over time and use.
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. For more information visit: http://responsibledown.org/
