Available Again! - Eclipse Top Quilts for a total warmth solution:

Eclipse Top Quilt

The Trail Winder UQ used the standalone UQP as a starting point and then adds a layer of asymmetrical Apex Climashield synthetic insulation to make it an effective Underquilt.  I am currently trying to keep all weights in stock, but from time to time based on demand, the 2.5, 6.0, 7.5 and 10.0 may need to be ordered.

It is available in either Asym orientation or a symmetrical orientation.

Asym orientation is based on which way you lay in the hammock and the insulation is cut on the angle to save weight and pack space.  The Broad Width option adds 6" to the shoulder width for those with wider shoulders.

The Trail Winder is also available in a symmetrical cut.  For those who do not have a dedicated lay, such as those who toss or turn during the night, changing their orientation, a full width cut provides more uniform coverage.   This will increase the weight and bulk obviously, especially as you get into the heavier weight insulations such as 7.5 or 10 oz.  


  • Made from either Calendered Ion or Argon 90 (custom fabrics are possible as well)
  • Layer of Apex Climashield insulation sewn in at your preferred lay orientation (currently stocked weights are 3.6 oz or 6.0 oz, others can be ordered)
  • Length - Standard is 106", but if you prefer more coverage for your hammock, longer lengths are available (although it should be shorter than your hammock length to account for the UQ suspension)
  • Width - 55-57" (depends on starting width of fabric)
  • Suspension included - Adjustable shock cord loops at each end with Mini Biners.  
  • Enough shock cord is included for use on a variety of length hammocks are quilt stacking situations.
  • 5' section on each side is shock corded.  Easily adjust how snug it is to your UQ or hammock
  • Includes stuff sack (an optional compression sack is available)
  • Weights will vary depending on options chosen (see charts below) **
  • For reference, the shiny side would be facing up (next to the hammock), while the duller side with the DWR treatment would be towards the ground
  • The last picture in the gallery shows the approximate dimensions of the insulation.

Using either Argon 90 or calendered Ion Fabric, it provides resistance to wind and rain as well.
