Down under quilts have proven to be, without question, the preferred choice for insulating the underside of the hammock. Due to the 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 Econ, and a 3/4-length under quilt - the Phoenix Econ. They are known by many to be the most effective on the market today. One of the primary reasons is this: the Economy Incubator and Economy 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.


For orders placed on or after 2/4/2020, lead time is approximately 1-2 weeks to ship this product.

All of our quilts ship with a 24" x 36" Storage Sack and Stuff Sack for backpacking.


About the Economy Incubator

The ULTIMATE underquilt for guaranteed comfort at a low price... The Standard length Economy Incubator is long enough to generously cover most hammock campers up to about 6’ 1”.  Our Economy Incubator series utilizes downproof 1.1 oz / yd² (20D) Calendared Nylon Taffeta fabric and 800 fill power DWR Treated Grey Duck Down. This underquilt will protect you in temperatures down to its temperature rating. If you are looking for an underquilt that is hassle free and will allow you to enjoy your hammock for more months of the year, you have found it.

The Economy Incubator comes with 9 anatomically contoured, differential cut baffles that run the length of the quilt. One of the things this construction technique does is to greatly reduce the shifting of down that is sometimes more noticeable in quilts made with premium down.  This is one of the reasons Hammock Gear quilts are always 15-20% overstuffed. The differential cut, contoured baffles also provide the highest level of fit which is critical to keeping warm. The Economy Incubator comes complete with our state of the art shock-cord suspension system, featuring color coded s-biners that help you to easily orient the head and foot end of the underquilt for a quick and effortless set-up. All of our quilts are shipped with a complimentary cotton storage sack, and a nylon stuff sack!


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.

    Underquilt performance

    Posted by Be Strong on 12th Dec 2019

    I came into their warehouse not knowing they don’t sale off the shelf but the people at HG were overwhelming at taking care of me any way - I purchased a 20* Burrow and I can’t recommend this enough - thank you for the warmth of your hospitality and the warmth of my burrow

    20 degree Economy Incubator

    Posted by Micah Risher on 7th Nov 2019

    This is a must have if you are hammock backpacking in any kind of cold. Complete game changer. I used the 20 degree Econ Incubator Long with my Hennessy Safari XL Hammock. Seamless integration. I like that the small edge rings on the Incubator are spaced in such a way that the staggered lateral stabilizers of my Hennessy Hammock actually aids in customizing the underquilt’s hang position. Well worth the investment. I may try a Hammock Gear top quilt next.

    Hammock Gear's 30 degree Econo Under-quilt

    Posted by Jim Mohr on 4th Nov 2019

    I just spent two nights out in 30-degree weather and was very impressed with this under-quilt. It is my only experience using an under-quilt but I would recommend it wholeheartedly. I've always avoided temps under 45 degrees because I had to rely on pads inside my hammock. Now I would feel confident in anything above 30. Thanks, HG!

    Warm and toasty sleep

    Posted by Costikyan on 21st Oct 2019

    Everything was great with the underquilt. Slept in White Mountains in October and was nice and warm. Excellent for a 2 - 5 day trip. If I was thru-hiking I would spend the extra for the premium, but this is perfect for a shorter trip.
