    Default Hammock gear TQ & UQ vs Underground quilts?

    Trying to decide which company to go with. Looking at burrow 20 vs bandit and an UQ to match. Price seems close but HG offering 10% off if buying both.....any feedback as Iíve had 2 EE quilts but neither of these and heard good stuff about both. HG has a lil less wait time....

    I am very happy with my 3/4 length 20 degree UGQ underquilt. Well made product and a good customer experience.

    Both are good quality and you really can't go wrong with either. UGQ has a rental policy so you could check theirs out beforehand if you wanted to. On the other hand I've never heard of a customer who disliked either company, for both their products and their customer service.

    Despite the wait time I went with Loco Libre Gear for my TQ and UQ as I liked their designs better.

    This is like asking which is better, Honda or Toyota. You canít go wrong with either one, but most people have a preference. Mine is Hammock Gear.

    Good point...ended up ordering a HG 20* burrow and 20* incubator....only reason was they had a shorter lead time and they offered a 10% discount buying both....

    I throw another plug in for Hammock Gear...

    I have a 20* set and 40* set..

    The 40 consists of both a standard length incubator as well as a custom Phincubator which has a length between the Phoenix and Incubator.

    My 40* Burrow is the newer design with the long baffles at the body of the quilt and the horizontal baffles at the foot... prefer this over the older design on my 20. I can't tell whether there is a difference in the insulating value between designs. I imagine the migration of down is less on the newer design.
