DD Underblanket Olive Green underquilt
This DD Hammocks Underblanket is an underblanket specially developed for use with a hammock. The DD Underblanket is lightweight, compact and easy to set up. This underblanket is suitable for use during temperatures down to a minimum of -5 degrees Celsius.
Many hammock users agree that an underblanket is the best way to sleep warm in a hammock during cold nights. The DD Underblanket hangs under the hammock, and when properly attached, it creates a small space of air between itself and the hammock. This causes the hammock to warm up, and one can sleep warmly.
In hammocks, the majority of heat is lost because clothes and the sleeping bag are compressed by lying in the hammock. As a result, cold enters through the underside of the hammock. The DD Underblanket hangs under the hammock, so it is not compressed and therefore does not lose its insulation value. This underblanket should be hung close to the hammock, so it just touches the hammock when lying in it.
The DD Underblanket has a length of 2 metres, providing full-body insulation for the majority of people. DD Hammocks recommends hanging this underblanket so that one has some extra length at the head end. Should the DD Underblanket be slightly too short, it will be at most at the foot end in this case.
The DD Underblanket comes with 8 pieces of elastic rope, 8 Mini Carabiners and a stuff sack. It is possible to hang the DD Underblanket using only 4 Mini Carabiners, however, the DD Frontline, Jungle, Travel and Superlight Hammocks have extra suspension points on the sides. This allows all 8 Mini Carabiners to be used to connect this underblanket even better to the hammock.
For optimal insulation, the elastic cords should be adjusted slightly after hanging to ensure a good fit of the underblanket.
