The underquilt GLOW -12C is filled with the Polish goose down, widely recognized as the best in terms of the fill power. This parameter is crucial for keeping warm. Thanks to its unique features, the goose down is still superior and the lightest thermo-insulating filling material. Underquilt GLOW -12 – is filled with 550g of pure down!
There is something that makes our product unique:
The down that we use is recycled!
Down filling is obtained from products whose operating standards points out the need to replace it. Before we use is it again, the recovered raw material is subjected to a deep cleaning process with dedicated biodegradable washing agents. Then, after the down is setrylized and refreshed, it is subjected to careful selection and filled up to get the standard of 750 Cuin. Thanks to this process, we can offer the perfectly clean down with an exceptionally high quality. The recycled down prevents unnecessary animal suffering as well as reduces the amount of waste that humanity generates. Maybe banal but true.
Underquilt glow – key points
The particular design of the quilt capitalizes on the down’s features at the maximum level.
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 underquilt.
The part of the quilt dedicated to protect the chest, arms and head (on the left side of the photo) is 140cm 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 protect the legs. We have used a special longitudinal type of the chambers. Due to this fact, the down is used in the optimal way and the legs are warmed up perfectly.
When the underquilt is used with the hammock, the down moves from the shrinked end to the parts where the legs are placed. When the underquilt is used as a quilt /sleeping bag, the down is spread evenly.
Well designed tensioner system makes it very easy to adopt the underquilt to any hammock. Read the manual.
Both sides of the underquilt 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 getting out from the quilt even after the 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
One side of the quilt is dark green to blend into natural surroundings.
The other side, in the same way as pilots’ jackets, is orange to draw attention to our location.
The underquilt is equipped with two 1.25m expander cords with tensioners. Tensioners with self-lock are a proven and reliable solution which has already been successfully tested in our ultralight tarps.
The use of the expanders with the tensioners makes pitching up of the underquilt 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/topquilt. 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 details – 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 underquilt properly.
Read our guide about the comfort/minimum temperature and the influence of different factors on the comfort of the sleep in the outdoor.
– The comfort temperature of the underquilt is given under the assumption that it is used with the sleeping bag or topquilt with the same comfort temperature.
– In case when the underquilt is used as a quilt/sleeping bag, the comfort temperature is -5OC, minimum temperature -12OC.
