Material Information

Down under quilts have proven to be, without question, the preferred choice for insulating the underside of the hammock. Due to super light 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, and a 3/4-length under quilt - the Phoenix. They are known by many to be the most effective on the market today. One of the primary reasons is this: the Incubator and 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 12/2/19, lead time is approximately 3 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 Phoenix

Our Economy Phoenix series utilizes downproof 1.1 oz / yd² (20D) Calendared Nylon Taffeta fabric and 800 fill power DWR Treated Grey Duck Down. The Economy Phoenix is the 'little brother' of the Economy Incubator, approximately 3/4 length. It's ideal for people who are pack size and weight conscious and want to shave those few extra ounces without sacrificing much in warmth or comfort. The Economy Phoenix helps you maximize every ounce by using goose down and with 9 differential baffles that run the length of the quilt, which helps keep the down from shifting, providing more warmth. (The baffles make this much warmer than similar quilts using "sewn-through" construction, allowing more loft).

The Economy Phoenix has a three dimensional, ergonomically shaped cut, which not only reduces weight, but provides a more secure wrap around the hammock, eliminating drafts. This underquilt (or UQ) is 3/4-length. This means it is designed to insulate you from your shoulders down to below your knees. Many hammoock campers will use a small piece of closed-cell-foam pad under their lower legs and feet since they typically require less insulation underneath to stay warm. The Economy Phoenix 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.

    A must have for hammock sleeping!

    Posted by Sam on 26th Sep 2019

    I was skeptical about getting an under quilt for my hammock because I always thought they were similar to a sleeping bag or to be used with a sleeping bag for very cold weather camping. Boy was I wrong!

    I only slept in a hammock a couple of times before first trying Hammock Gear's under quilt and I am so glad I tried it out! I'm 6 ft and the 3/4 length Economy Phoenix plus a down jacket at my feet kept me warm and cozy all trough the night.

    I used this and the HG Economy Burrow top quilt during a 6 day backpacking trip in Glacier National Park, and I almost never needed to use the top quilt since the under quilt was doing such a good job at keeping me warm!

    If you are on the fence on getting one, don't hesitate, your butt will thank you!

    Underquilt

    Posted by Gabriel on 6th Sep 2019

    I’m 5’6” and this underquilt almost covers my entire body! I’m a cold sleeper and this 20degree quilt was perfect for me in the high Sierra mountains with weather getting down to 40degrees. Great quality, great loft, and loved the way you can adjust this quilt.

    Toasty Warm

    Posted by SummerRoseAnn on 13th Jul 2019

    I slept absolutely toast warm with this under my hammock camping up in Mt. Baker National Forest this summer. As someone who's perpetually freezing I was pleasantly surprised with how comfortable I was at night down around 45F. I had to actually go without a top-quilt a few times. Fantastic product, I'll never sleep in a tent on the cold hard ground again.

    Economy Phoenix - Quality down product for an insane price

    Posted by Jim Plyler on 1st Jul 2019

    I recently got back from using this on a few trips, one of them being 6 days on the AT. This quilt was everything that I have been looking for in an underquilt. It is warm (mine is 30 degree version), extremely adjustable, light, compacts nicely in my pack, and a price that can barely be matched anywhere else for a down underquilt. Dealing with Hammock Gears customer service is a great pleasure, fine group of people that are working here. The craftsmanship on this quilt is incredible, I am slightly OCD and probably looked at every stitch, which were all perfect I might add. The contour of the underquilt allows it to be tightened up against you easily, and I had no cold spots whatsoever. The price is perfect, I spent a comparable amount for synthetic quilts when I was first getting into Hammock Camping, and down quilts just seemed like a pipedream due to the cost of some of them at that time. The economy quilt line from Hammock Gear is the answer to getting quality gear into the hands of hammockers like me! Will be purchasing from them for certain in the future!

    Nice Price to Weight Ratio

    Posted by Mitch Luman on 24th Jun 2019

    The expertly constructed 40 degree Econ Phoenix 3/4 length will keep your entire back side warm even if you are a cold sleeper down to the lower 60's. After that, you will need an additional pad for your legs or a pillow for your head as insulation. Nice price to weight ratio compared the similarly excellent incubator model if you don't mind a few extra ounces. Customer service superior.
