GLOW – Under quilt – key points
H shape of the chambers prevents the cold points – the places (sewing lines) left without insulation.
This solution significantly increases the insulation parameters of the under quilt.The part of the quilt dedicated to protecting the chest, arms, and head (on the left side of the photo) is 140cm in width and consists of pillow-like chambers. It protects the down from movement to the lower parts of the quilt. Thanks to that the chest and head are very well protected from cold.
The narrow part of the quilt is dedicated to protecting the legs. We have used a special longitudinal type of chambers. Due to this fact, the down is used in the optimal way and the legs are warmed up perfectly.When the under quilt is used with the hammock, the down moves from the shrunk end to the parts where the legs are placed. When the under quilt is used as a quilt /sleeping bag, the down is spread evenly.Well designed tensioner system makes it very easy to adopt the under quilt to any hammock. Read the manual.Both sides of the under quilt are made of ultra-light rip-stop nylon (22g/m2) with a DWR (Durable Water Repellency) coating.
The fabric is durable and breathable. At the same time, it is dense enough to prevent the down from getting out from the quilt even after long-term use.
DWR protects the quilt from absorbing water which condenses on the surface of the quilt and flows down from the quilt.
Colors and use
The other side, in the same way as pilots’ jackets, is orange to draw attention to our location.The under quilt is equipped with two 1.25m expander cords with tensioners. Tensioners with self-lock are a proven and reliable solution that has already been successfully tested in our ultralight tarps.The use of the expanders with the tensioners makes pitching up of the under quilt nice and easy.
When you already are inside the hammock, you can still easily adjust the insulation level by loosening or tensioning the expanders.If you plan to spend the night on the ground (for example under the tarp), Underquilt GLOW can be used as a sleeping bag/top quilt. Just tide the expanders over the sleeping pad, and attach the quilt to protect it from slipping out during the night. This solution can work quite well when you use the Underquilt as a quilt (when you move the tensioners to the edge of the sleeping pad) or as a sleeping bag (moving them close to the body). How to use it in detail – find it in our manual.Underquilt GLOW -12C – is one of the key points of your travel gear if you go to the colder regions.
It lets you sleep comfortably both in the hammock and on the ground.Before use read the manual in which we explain step by step how to use the under quilt properly.
Read our guide about the comfort/minimum temperature and the influence of different factors on the comfort of the sleep outdoor.
– The comfort temperature of the under quilt is given under the assumption that it is used with the sleeping bag or top quilt with the same comfort temperature.
