Description

The Toaster series of quilts are a premium, quality piece of outdoor gear.

From the ground up their are designed to hold down in place and keep you warm in the outdoors. Warmth ratings are actual ratings, not ‘EN or survival’ ratings. The top quilts are designed to replace traditional style sleeping bags in your hammock and also for use on the ground on pads.

Underquilts are designed to provide great warmth attached to the underside of your hammock. This allows you to ditch your pad and sleep in your hammock with ease. The UQ simply clips onto your ends of the hammock (loops) with S biners (included). Line Loc 3’s allow you to adjust the quilt to your hammock simply by cinching up the shock cord in the corners. End channel shock cord allows you to close up the ends keeping the air movement out. Also included is a draft tube on the foot end of the UQ to help you keep the cold out. See the video for setup instructions.

These premium quilts implement a closed baffle design. There are no gaps on the ends that let down move chamber to chamber. Other vendors choose to leave openings between the chambers since it takes more time to do. Not here. Each is closed up with no loss of down.

All of the quilts are overstuffed by 20% more down. This helps in maintaining loft over time.

Sizing of the UQ’s is post sewn dimensions. This means that the measurements are taken with the item filled with down. When comparing to other quilt vendors please note that their measurements are taken before filling so there is shrinkage. Get what is advertised and what you paid for!

4 Temperature ratings to choose from  (Please note that wind can play a factor in the warmth of your gear. Tarps and UnderQuilt Protectors work wonders to maintain the ratings)

Down : GGD 850+FP (Grey Goose Down)

  • I am now using exclusively Goose down. It packs down tighter, nicer down plumes and less smell when damp.

Care of your quilt : Treat your quilt with care and you will get many years use out of it. Always air them out after use. If you are on a multi-day hike spread them out on your tent or over the hammock (TQ’s) UQ’s get more air flow hanging under the hammock but still need airing. So if your taking a lunch break and it’s sunny spread them out. You do not have to wash your quilt every time you use it. If there is some dirt/mud on it simply spot wash it with a damp cloth. Often all it needs is some airing out.

  • Your quilts are made with some of the lightest weight fabrics available so special care is required to prevent any damage to them. If you fail to follow these instructions you can damage your quilts severely.
  • No washing machines
    • Use proper down detergent only (Use less rather than more. It doesn’t take much detergent to do the job)
    • Hand wash in a large basin or tub with warm water. Gently push the air out of the quilt in the water and knead the quilt allowing the water to saturate the down. Then a minimal amount of kneading, pushing the water through the material. Drain the tub and knead out the water. Do no wring or whip the quilt around. This can damage the quilt. Fill the tub with fresh water and repeat to flush the detergent out. Repeat until the water is clear and not cloudy.
    • Do not move the quilt around while saturated with water. It’s too heavy and the internal baffles can be easily damaged this way. You can use towels to aid in the moisture removal.
  • Drying:
    • Never hang a wet/soaked down item on a line. Lay it on a drying rack so it’s supported while heavy. Drying outside in dry air with air movement works great.
    • Once the quilt is fairly dry you can move it to the dryer with tennis balls. Only use Fluff / No Heat setting. Minimal heat can cause hot spots in your dryer and melt the fabric. NO HEAT. The tennis balls will help break up the clumps of down. It may take 3-4 hours to dry a quilt.
  • Once the quilt is dry you will need to shift down around with gentle hand pushes.
  • Do not Dry Clean.
  • Store loose in a large breathable bag. Do not store in the stuff sack.

Fabric weights: End weights will vary depending on fabric chosen. Weights given above are using .90oz/yd fabric.

  • Argon 90 – .90oz/yd
  • Outdoor Ink Printed Fabric 1.0oz/yd
  • Woodland Digital Camo (AOR2) 1.55oz / yd

    I wanted to give you an update on this underquilt after trying it out.
    The fit on my blackbird xlc was almost perfect.
    The elastic loops you had on each end worked perfectly, and I simply placed them on the gathered end of my hammock.
    The baffle on the inside was great for stopping any air gaps. I would almost recommend one on each end though.
    On one end, the through elastic adjustment end came through in the night. I saw the plastic adjustment piece was small enough to fit inside just barely. My tossing in the night must have helped it. I put an extra couple of stitches in and it won’t happen again.
    The loops on the sides of the quilt were AWESOME with the extra elastic you supplied me with. I attached a clip to one end, and used a taut line hitch on the other. The effect was that the sides didn’t move during the night, and I was never cold.
    Now, warmth factor was WAY more than I was expecting. The quality of the stitching was superb, and the ease of use was off the chart. It’s easier to use than my yeti underquilt built by Warbonnet. I only wish I had found you earlier, I would have bought ALL my hammock stuff from you.
    You’ve got a customer for life.
    Oh, and you were right about the underquilt protector. You’ve probably already noticed that I placed an order for it. One of the nights I was sleeping, there was a small ice storm. The only place my setup got wet was my underquilt, as the rain would splash on the ground, and come back up. I should have listened to you in the first place.

    I ordered a Toaster 0 F under quilt, it was made and shipped within two weeks. I was kept well informed throughout the whole build process, James even took the time to send me a few photos of it in production, as well as double checking my fabric colours before he started. I must say that customer care and satisfaction are a priority for him. Now to the quilt itself, the workmanship and attention to detail are top of the line, the man can sew, he probably could have used his talents to make high end fashion, I’m glad he choose to use it to make quilts instead. All the little extras, draft collar and the extra cinch on the foot end ensure cold air wont be sneaking in, secondary suspension it all adds up to a high end product for a competitive price.

    I just received my 0 deg toaster down underquilt, underquilt protector and a “Warrior Edge” hammock from James over at Little Shop of Hammocks, and I am blown away, The craftsmanship is absolutely 1st class the attention to detail, the sewing, everything is outstanding. I don’t want to put pics up yet as this gear needs to be outside where pictures will do it justice. This was more just to say thanks to James. Great guy to deal with and always responded to any question I had ( very quickly ). I would certainly recommend you check out his web site http://www.littleshopofhammocks.com

    I just received my UnderQuilt and protector in the mail from Little Shop of Hammocks yesterday! They’re so gorgeous.

    I purchased a -10C quilt in March, and have been able to use it many times since. I’ve used the quilt down to 2°C, and found it kept me perfectly comfortable (used in conjunction with a 0C top quilt). This product fits my Hennessy very well, is easy to set up, and is extremely well made. I originally thought I wanted peripheral shock cord, but the four corner suspension on the quilt works perfectly on its own. The top and bottom quilt combo is the best setup I’ve found.

    Customer service is top notch. I only wish I had come here for my top quilt as well.

    I’ve been using my 0°C under quilt for over a year now with nothing but warm nights. As suggested, set up the hammock in your yard and have someone help you make the adjustments to its set to your preferences. Once you hit the field, its just a matter of clipping on the S biners and you’re all set.

    Does it keep you warm? In summer months I slept in underwear with no top quilt (brought one, didnt need it) and in the cooler spring and fall my Top quilt from James completed the set up. Have no doubts about the quality of the material or workmanship, and if you’re like me and skeptical that something so light can be so warm, rest assured it is THAT warm.
