** NEW - The DD Underblanket is now available in Coyote Brown to match your favourite hammock and tarp! **
Suitable for use in temperatures down to -5C, the DD Underblanket works to prevent heat loss from beneath you. Hang it under your hammock, and feel the warmth generated in minutes for a cosy night's sleep! In our opinion, this is the best hammock insulation for a cold night in the wilds!
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 DD Hammock 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, to achieve the warmest insulation.
Our 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.
The DD Underblanket is compatible with all our hammocks produced since 2012. Ordinarily its cords can be clipped onto the small tabs along the sides of your hammock.
If using with the SuperLight Jungle, Scout and XL Frontline or any other hammocks without side tabs - 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.
