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.


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.

    Econ Burrow 20 degree wide

    Posted by Vince on 9th Sep 2019

    Econ Burrow 20 wide, long sewn foot box.
    I bought this back in February 2019. It arrived in mid-March. I bought this to replace a 20 degree down bag that was over 3 LBS. The idea was to carry less weight. The Econ Burrow is definitely lighter and I found it very warm in temps down to 19 degrees. I tested this out in my yard on several cold nights in March. All temps were around 19-25 degrees. I tried it w/ several types of clothing and was never cold. One night I was wearing a tea shirt and light cotton pants and a hat. I was never cold. I toss around a lot and I was fine. I was using a decent inflatable mat. I do not get out much in the shoulder seasons so do not expect to see many nights below freezing, but it’s nice to know I’ll be warm if I do.
    I was more concerned about if I would be too hot in the summer and happily report I was not.

    Economy Burrow

    Posted by Loretta on 31st Aug 2019

    Got the Economy Burrow 30 degrees for ground use with zippered foot and pad straps. Very good quality materials that are very comfortable when sleeping. Attached nicely to my sleeping mat. Have used it to temps as low as 40 degrees and was very comfortable. Would highly recommend for the great quality at a great price point.

    Great product, very well made

    Posted by Zach Vaughn on 27th Aug 2019

    This is my first quilt-style sleeping system and I had it out for the first time last weekend on a Scout event. It was very warm, but the flexibility of the burrow allowed me to keep up with the falling temps at night and then still be comfortable in the middle of the afternoon for a nap after kayaking. i cannot wait for the cooler weather to see how I like the added room this burrow provides compared to my restrictive sleeping bag. I also love how compact this unit can be crushed to. It fit well in a dry bag with other items and is super light.

    Economy Burrow

    Posted by Tim Graves on 24th Aug 2019

    What a great quilt. Saved me nearly 2lbs out of my pack compared to my sleeping bag. Space savings also, when packed just a little bigger than a 32oz Nalgene bottle. Super warm easy to vent if to warm. Quality product Very well put together.

    Excellent value

    Posted by Jason Lav on 23rd Aug 2019

    The craftsmanship of the economy burrow is impeccable. The quilt compresses quite small and puffs right back up. The duck down in this quilt appears no different than goose down. No smells and no leakage. I purchased the short and wide 20-degree version for ground sleeping. I’m 5' 6" and the length is perfect. The quilt is reasonably wide, but can let in drafts while turning (typical symptom of a quilt). The temperature rating seems be equivalent with other brands I have used. I used it in the upper 30s and stayed comfortable. I would not use it down to 20-degrees as I sleep rather cold. On warm nights, the footbox can be unzipped to create a rectangular blanket for easy venting. On cooler nights, the footbox can be zipped up to keep the warmth in. This may be a great benefit for those who get claustrophobic in mummy bags.

    The one minor issue I have noticed is the drawstring in the footbox leaves about a half in hole when fully cinched. Easily remedied by stuffing a beanie, buff, or sock into the hole.

    Overall, the economy burrow is an amazing quality quilt for an incredibly low price. I am not regretting my choice to go with the economy quilt over the premium quilt. The only possible change I might make is to purchase overstuffing for greater longevity.

    This is a product that has changed the way I camp. My sleep is the best. I have two of these and my wife now claims one as her own. Quality shows throughout this top quilt. The company makes things easy and are there to answer questions. I cant give HG enough praise. Great team over there. They make the best gear.
