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.

    Cozy & compact

    Posted by Aiyin on 16th Aug 2019

    I got the 20 deg wide with 2 oz overstuff & sleeping pad attachment system. Used it for a backpacking trip in CO where it dropped into the low 40s with rain and hail. It was really easy to attach to my pad and packed down very nicely for hiking in/out of the mountains. I was cozy at night minus my shoulders, but I'm a side sleeper so I just threw my puffy on to help with that. Overall an awesome quilt that I know will be great for future trips!

    Great product, great customer service

    Posted by Anna on 15th Aug 2019

    After having to shorten two trips due to an excessively heavy pack, I took a close look at my basic gear and discovered my sleeping bag was way heavier than I realized.

    I sleep pretty warm, and didn't have the funds for a new sleeping bag. Luckily, the org I work for had just done an article about backpacking quilts so I thought I'd try one out. I shopped around but most of what I found was still out of my price range. Luckily, a coworker has this same bag suggested I try it.

    A great price, and it's been just what I needed.

    It's been on two trips so far this summer, and I anticipate bringing it on my fall backpacking trip in September. I was a little cold on my last trip, but we were at 7000+ feet, the nights were a brisk 35 degrees, and I'd decided to not bring long underwear. I am confident I would have been cozy if I'd brought long pants to sleep in.

    I see a lot of other people have mentioned this, but I'll add my voice to the chorus: Hammock Gear's customer service is fantastic. I ordered this item at the beginning of July, and in the shipping notes said I hoped to get it by the end of the month for my aforementioned trip. Not only did I get a personal email from an employee confirming I'd have the quilt by the end of July, but I got it early; in time for a backpacking trip I'd planned the *week after* I ordered the item! That efficiency and personal contact was so appreciated.

    Burrow 20-deg

    Posted by Todd on 11th Aug 2019

    Used on a 2-week Scout Adventure in Philmont, NM. Couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Cool nights down in 40s at 10,000 ft I was comfortable with sleeping pad underneath. Loved the breathing hole in foot box as my feet otherwise get hot.

    Economy borrow

    Posted by Unknown on 11th Aug 2019

    A wonderful product. I used it on the 100 mile wilderness of the AT and it performed flawlessly. It packs small and has really good warmth, I didn’t have to fluff it that much out of the compression sack to get it to full expansion. I will probably be a hammock gear product user from now on.

    Blown away by the quality and customer service.

    Posted by Derek Rosenberg on 10th Aug 2019

    In my honest opinion, I don't believe there is a better value for your money on the market. My Long/ Wide compresses amazingly and I can't tell the difference between duck and goose down other than a small difference in smell. I have used this quilt for 3 months and about 10 nights of camping and have been toasty with no cold spots to speak of. I will be permanently relacing my REI Magma 15 for everything other than sleeping in severe cold. The quality in every aspect of this quilt blew me away from stitching to features and so on (it has that indescribable durable feeling in your hands). Finally, the responsiveness and help I received from Harry Carlson in customer care was amazing, Hammock Gear has a customer for life.

    I am 6'3" 225lbs with wide shoulders. My Econ Burrow Black/ Black; Long/ WIde; 30 Degree Quilt; Zipper footbox weighed in at exactly 21.5877 oz, and fit me perfectly up to my chin.

    I could not be happier with my purchase, I will be buying again, and would recommend. If you are on the fence, go for it! You'll see what I mean!

    Great Quilt!

    Posted by Jennifer on 7th Aug 2019

    I bought this to use on the TRT due to the extra snow this season. I hated my cheap bag that wasn't warm enough so I went ahead and spent the money on something I could use for a long time. I was NOT disappointed. Nor was I too cold or too hot.

    Great Blanket

    Posted by Thron on 4th Aug 2019

    I took a risk and switched from a mummy bag to the blanket hoping it was a good choice. It worked better than I expected! Just got back from 7 days in the High Sierras and it worked great. The nights were in the upper 30's to low 40's. with the toe box closed I was hot. Later on I went to Yosemite Valley with temps in the upper 40's and was comfortable with the toe box open. This is so much better than my old mummy bag. Great product that I would highly recommend.
