    Econ TQ- Wilderness Logics vs Hammock Gear

    Does anyone have any experience with both top quilts? With the current sale the WL would be about $45 less for my needs- any compelling reasons to go with the Hammock Gear?

    I’ve had both. Get what speaks to you, both are great pieces of gear. The folks at WL and HG are both great to work with!

    I have both as well. They both work fine and keep me warm. Wilderness Logics will arrive faster, and you can customize the colors more than the HG quilt.

    I have/had both, and my opinion is actually a bit more skewed than those above me. The fabric WL uses for their Econ models (at least, mine) was rather crinkly, and felt like a softer version of what a walmart yard tarp feels like. I ended up selling mine, and buying a HG Econ Burrow, and I absolutely love it. Very warm, and the fabric is silky soft when compared to the WL Budget Winter King I had before. Absolutely nothing again WL or Marty, his service was excellent and the product was top notch. I just felt the quality/comfort of the fabric used was/is better with HG.

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Rumor (through my 10 year old!) has it my wife bought me one for Christmas. I had a list sitting out so I assumed she picked a good one but I won't know for a bit....
