Underquilts are needed to prevent the cold butt syndrome. When you don’t have something under you in chilly weather or windy conditions you are going to feel that your back is getting cold. To prevent this you need to use some sort of insulation. This can be a sleeping pad, a reflective sheet or an underquilt.
There are two kinds of underquits;
- The full one which stretches the full length of your hammock
- The 3/4 one which only covers 3/4 of you hammock. Most of the times this is combined with a sit pad at your feet.
Pro’s of underquilts:
- Offers better insulation than any other method
Con’s of underquilts:
- Can be expensive depending on the material
- Only for hammocks
Here is the list of the most popular underquilts on the market. You can sort or search the table depending on your requirements and budget.
The label ‘custom’ is given to items that are configurable, so there is no set price.
