Underquilts have proven to be the go to bottom insulation for hammock campers and the Convector UP Underquilt is no different. The Convector UP UQ comes standard with UP Synthetic insulation that offers a top of the line warmth to weight ratio and high compressability. We also offer a synthetic version in the Convector UP Underquilt. The Convector UP UQ is built with a differential cut to maximize loft and our integrated draft seal blocks out those cold drafts to maximize warmth. Trail Tested and Comfort Rated The Convector UP UQ will keep you warm on coldest of nights
The Convector UP Underquilt is a full feature, highly adjustable underquilt that will fit any gathered end hammock on the market, also bridge hammock just by shortening the suspension a bit.
Length refers to the measurement from end to end with all cords loosened, laid flat and pulled tight.
Width refer to the measurement from side to side with all cords loosened, laid flat and pulled tight.
Target loft is the thickness of the quilt at its thickest point. Baffle height is the height of the internal baffle sew inside the quilt.
About UP Insulation
UP insulation feature a unique synthetic cluster built around the finest water resistant fibers of varying deniers and composition to mimic the natural down cluster better than any existing blowable synthetic on the market. By using deniers ranging in size – some smaller than one denier – the UP cluster is able to bind to each other better to provide more warmth and greater durability. Much like down, UP works by trapping air providing maximum insulation for a given weight.
UP has tested to be warmer than a 600 fill power Goose Down when tested for warmth based on equal volume. While no synthetic can equal the warmth to weight, compressibility and resiliency of down, UP makes up for it with sheer durability and water resistance.
In independent testing, UP has shown to have a loft equal to 625 Fill Power.
A synthetic insulation is only as good as its durability. Having been tested under harsh washing condition, UP is able to withstand 20+ repeated washings showing no discernible cold spots or clumping in baffles up to 3″ x 10″. With the warmth close to a 700 fill power down and able to be used in larger cold weather products, this new blowable insulation is one that finally transcends the small, lightweight jacket baffles common seen in comparable insulation.
