Going to ground?  Use our attachment system to get a good night's sleep.  

The included 3 mini-cordlocks, 6 mitton hooks, and 3 - 65" shockcord will work with your pad by attaching it to our standard loops on the Burrow (topquilt).  Slide your pad inside the cords, and the quilt will be secured for a good seal against the chill.

    Easy to Use and Inexpensive

    Worked like a charm. Bought an extra one for later.

    wishing I had it earlier

    Posted by Jim aka bad biscuit on 7th Apr 2020

    Although I primarily sleep in a hammock, on a recent trip through the Smokey Mountains, I was required to sleep in the sheter one night out of three (I was on the AT). I borrowed a sleeping pad and used my top quilt. I fought keeping my top quilt (Burrow) all night. I purchased one of these kits (which is cheaper than buying the materials and making it myself) and tested at home. It works like a dream! If you ever have to "go to ground," these are worth the tiny weight and price penalty!

    Ground pad attachment kit

    Posted by Unknown on 12th Mar 2020

    Used my Burrow quilt without using these straps and was VERY cold in 40F temps. Used them when camping in 25F weather and was roasty toasty warm. Essential item. This purchase is just a spare kit in case I lose one or all of them.

    Pad attachment

    Posted by Theresa Unruh on 11th Mar 2020

    You wouldn’t think such a simple thing would help keep you warm. I just finished a week camping trip in the Grand Canyon and the attachment kept my quilt tucked all around me and I was toasty warm.

    So far, so good. Used for a 2 night hike. I found it convenient and easy to use although I really have to wait until used many, many times to see if the elastic stretches out or stays as is. I recommend setting it up at home first and marking your pad where you want the 3 cords to be positioned, not doing it on the trail for the first time.

    Cheap and works... kind of.

    Basically, the mitten hooks provided have a permanent gap. That means the fabric loop on the quilt can work itself free. Which is exactly what happened. 3 of 6 loops had worked its way free when I got up in the middle of the night. After reattaching all of them, in the morning, 2 of 6 had once again come undone. There must be a better way. I like that it's low profile but this is ridiculous.

    Response from Hammock Gear:
    Thanks so much for your review with us! We'd like to fix that issue for you. The Burrows that we ship out nowadays have D-Rings attached to those loops, so the ground pad kit will work much better than just having the loops there. Please let me know when you have some time to ship it back to us, and we'll add those D-Rings for you.

    There's a better way to attach these things!

    Posted by Ellie on 30th Jun 2019

    So the first night I used this I had a really hard time. It was tricky to get the loop on the quilt into the hook, and they kept coming unhooked at night. But then the second night I had a revelation! Just stick the entire double-ended hook through the loop, and then attach the empty end of the hook back to the shock cord. Once I set it up this way it stayed on all night and kept drafts out perfectly, and it was way easier to set up.
    Sorry it's hard to describe without a picture, but basically when you're done the plastic hook itself should be through the loop on the quilt, with the shock cord going through both clips. Hope this helps somebody!

    Ground Pad Attachment Kit

    Posted by Theo Hartman on 17th Jun 2019

    This kit worked well for keeping my top quilt wrapped snugly around my ground pad! No problems with being exposed to cool temperatures while sleeping on a ground pad with a top quilt!

    Works to attach to pad, but not to keep out drafts

    Posted by TJ Gerrity on 29th Jan 2019

    The straps do work to attach the quilt to the pad, but don't allow the adjustments that would help keep drafts out. I love my quilt itself but am considering buying an Enlightened Equipment quilt simply for the pad attachments which offer much better adjustability needed on those colder shoulder-season nights.

    Attachment kit needs work

    Posted by Rebecca on 8th Jan 2019

    I used these on a 24F night last weekend. The elastic is fine but the clips don’t work. They’re difficult to attach, but, every time I moved, slipped off the loops on the bag, the elastic or each other when I tried to clip them to themselves. Super ineffective. Blargh.

    Response from Hammock Gear:
    Thanks for the honest review Rebecca! We will take your experience into consideration.

    Attachment kit

    Posted by Jon on 11th Oct 2018

    I love my quilt but I am disappointed with the attachment kit. The clips are a pain to attach to the quilt itself and come off easily and accidentally. I have only tested the kit at home but I can't imagine trying to reattach the clips in a dark tent. I'm looking for other options...

    Works well

    Posted by Nick Holes on 24th Apr 2018

    I bought these to use with my Econ Burrow 30 long wide in case I ever go to ground. They work well at holding the quilt sides down, but can slip off the loops that are on the quilt. Would def recommend to anyone using a sleeping pad with their quilt.
