This was our #1 requested product to launch in 2020! The Hammock Gear Underquilt Protector is here!  Whether you hammock camp in extremely humid and / or extremely cold environments, underquilt protectors are an essential piece of equipment to keep on hand.  Underquilt protectors work by providing you with another breathable layer of fabric between your precious underquilt and the outside elements.  Morning dew, splashing rain, and frozen condensation can wreak havoc on your underquilt, even with water resistant materials.  Underquilt Protectors also help to block wind, which can give you a small boost to your underquilt's temperature rating.  If you don't have one already, pick one up today!


  • Adjustable cinch cord on each end to allow for ventilation.  Loosen it up if you're too hot, or cinch it closed if you're chilly.
  • Full length, adjustable suspension to keep your underquilt protector stable and secure
  • Color coded S-Biner on each end to allow you to connect it to your hammock suspension
  • Compatible with Gathered End Hammocks from 9 to 11 ft Long
  • Optional Hammock Gear Small Nylon Stuff Sack available (see picture attached to this product)


  • Available in either 10D Ripstop Nylon, 20D Nylon Taffeta, or 40D Ripstop Nylon (Multicam Only)
  • Weights = 6.64 oz for 20D Nylon Taffeta or 4.62 oz for 10D Ripstop Nylon

    Definitely worth its weight!

    Posted by Matt on 28th Jan 2021

    I am new to hammock camping, and I bought 15 degree and 40 degree under quilts. On a recent trip the temperature and night dropped to 10 degrees, and I was able to try out my new protector. The wind was about 20 mph and it was really blowing my tarp around and pressing it up against me. At times it even rocked my hammock! Even with the low temperature and high winds, I stayed warm and cozy all night. I was really impressed with how it was able to seal out drafts and block the wind.

    This is a game changer!

    Even if it was just a bit humid out, I was finding that my down UQ was getting damp and was not keeping me quite as warm at night. I got this UQ protector and man, what a great purchase! It weighs almost nothing and packs down super small. VERY easy to set up and pairs seamlessly with my HG UQ. My UQ stayed dry throughout a recent damp and cold night in the woods and I swear that I was toastier using this thing than I would have been with just my naked UQ. This is going with me on all campouts from now on!

    UQ Protector

    Wonderfully made but not very water repellent and does not block much additional wind. Overall a good addition to my quilt and I recommend it if you have one of HG under quilts.

    UQ protector

    The main item is great! I take off because the “small stuff sack” is merely the small bags intended for the HG quilts. If you are expecting a stuff sack to fit the UQ protector do not buy —its way too big.

    Underquilt protector

    Posted by Barry Conant on 11th Aug 2020

    Due to the warm temps and high humidity, my underquilt was getting damp. Constantly having to let air out to dry. By using the underquilt protector, problem solved! Easy to put on and very lightweight. Also adds extra 10 degrees to my low temperature rating. It really is a must have when dealing with inclement weather conditions when backpacking. Thanks for another great product.

    The worlds of hammocks just keeps getting better.

    Posted by Stephen Skinner on 1st Aug 2020

    Years ago I began making and selling these covers. We seemed to all be making at least some of our gear. For times when the weather is too warm for an Underquilt, or too cold for JUST an underquilt this is perhaps the answer for us. I know it is for me. This thing is much lighter than the ones I made, cheaper and better quality. I’m really glad I bought this.

    Great quality product, covers my quilt perfectly. My only complaint is it did not have a card to tell me which end was which. i have a Hammock Gear underquilt so it was not a problem for me but could be for someone who did not. Thanks guys for a great product!
