    Draft Collars

    Do the bottom quilts that "Hammock Gear" makes have draft collars?

    My zero incubator and twenty Phoenix both have draft collars my 40 Phoenix does not have draft collars per my request. I believe that now all HG UQ have draft collars unless requested otherwise
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    Thanks Lazy River, I also found my answer on HammockGear's FAQ page. All their hammocks have draft collars

    The same idea as a draft collar around your neck in a sleeping bag:

    It's a baffle built into the end of the UQ, across the width. It goes on the inside, up against your hammock. It helps to keep the air from moving out of the ends of the UQ.
