Hammock Gear Phoenix 20

photo: Hammock Gear Phoenix 20 under quilt

A very lightweight under quilt. Temperature rating is accurate, and fits gathered end hammocks very well.

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Quality construction
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • Price

This under quilt is perfect for gathered end hammocks. The temperature rating (20°F) seems spot on, as long as you use an appropriate top quilt.

The Phoenix fits gathered end hammocks very well. It can even be used on a bridge style hammock with minimal cold spots. Hammock Gear uses very high quality 850fp goose down that allows a very small pack size (see video)

I've used this quilt for two years and it's holding up great.

Excellent underquilt that I found right at its temperature rating. Perfect balance for warmth and weight/pack size.

Pros

  • Packable size
  • Temperature rating is accurate
  • Lightweight

Cons

  • Down has only one drawback, moisture

This is an excellent underquilt that I found right at its temperature rating. Its the perfect balance of warmth and weight/pack size. I use a small foam sit pad stuffed inside the foot box of the top quilt (or sleeping bag) to keep my feet warm since this is a partial underquilt.

It covers from the shoulders down to mid thigh. A small down pack pillow and the sit pad keep the rest of me warm underneath. As with all down, keeping it dry is important and is the only drawback when using it. Although full length underquilts provide more coverage, they can be bulky in the pack and of course weigh a bit more than a 3/4 underquilt like the Phoenix. The coldest I have used this underquilt is 18°F, and my nose and face were the only thing that got cold that morning.

Hammockgear will make these to your specs. Need it a bit longer or wider? Want more down than spec? They can do these thing. You can pick from a wide variety of colors for each side and the type of fabric on each side. Depending on the time of year, expect between 2-8 weeks on delivery from the time you order it. The price is worth the quality and satisfaction you get from their products.
