This very cleverly designed DD underblanket will make sure you stay snug all night long. It's suitable for use in temperatures down to -5C, preventing heat loss from beneath. Hang it under your hammock, and feel the warmth generated in minutes for a cosy night's sleep!
How does it work?
In hammock camping, the majority of heat loss is from below, due to your body weight compressing your clothing or the loft in your sleeping bag. The underblanket combats this by hanging below your hammock so the loft is not compressed, creating a pocket of air warmed by your body heat. It should be hung with a little slack to gently 'hug' the hammock when you're inside.
The DD Underblanket is 2m long, so will provide near full-length insulation for most people. We recommend setting it up with a little bias towards your head.
Ripstop nylon blanket with water-resistant coating, filled with 200gsm synthetic silk
8 lengths of elastic pre-fitted, with DD Mini Karabiners attached to clip to your hammock
Drawcord to cinch the ends.
If using with the SuperLight Jungle and XL Frontline hammocks, hang your underblanket from these models using just the four elastics at the ends, then draw in the sides. Or alternatively, fix the remaining cords to the four large side tabs meant for the curved poles.
