The underquilt works to prevent heat loss from beneath you. Hang it under your hammock, and feel the warmth generated in minutes for a cosy night’s sleep! In our opinion, this is the best hammock insulation for a cold night in the wilds!
In hammock camping, the majority of heat loss is from below due to your body weight compressing your clothing or the loft in your sleeping bag. The Hammock Underquilt combats this by hanging below your hammock so the loft is not compressed, creating a pocket of air warmed by your body heat. It should be hung with a little slack to gently ‘hug’ the hammock when you’re inside, to achieve the warmest insulation.
Our Underquilt is 237cm long, so will provide near full-length insulation for most people. We recommend setting it up with a little bias towards your head.
