Cure for the common cold butt

Cure for the common cold butt

 “Cold Butt Syndrome” happens when you lay in a hammock with only a sleeping bag. Even a very warm sleeping bag gets crushed under your back, shoulders, legs and butt, making it impossible to stay warm. Pads are one option, but they slide around, add bulk, and don’t usually keep shoulders warm. And who wants to inflate those after a long day on the trail? Under quilts are another option, but most add setup complexity, tend to slide off and may result in cold drafts. 

So what is the perfect solution for Cold Butt Syndrome?

Innovation

Innovation

Ya ya.. Everyone claims to be innovative. But how many are actually pushing the envelope? At Superior Gear, we simply don’t bother with gear unless it moves toward simpler, lighter, cozier and easier-to-use solutions for hammock camping.

Take our Superior Suspension System for example. Dissatisfied with any of the existing suspension systems, we re-envisioned an adjustable buckle to make both tightening AND loosening super easy. The Superior Suspension System makes it simple and quick to dial in the perfect hang every single time! Or look at our totally originally approach to a more traditional underquilt. It snaps directly onto our hammocks, making it incredibly simple, avoiding any sliding around or cold spots. And that’s just a small taste. Innovation is truly at the core of everything we design.

What Customers Are Saying

"The [Superior] hammock is fantastic! I took it on a 6 day backpacking trip through the high Sierra where it was getting into the mid-20's at night and it was warm and cozy! I was with two friends who shared a tent...needless to say, I slept really well and they did not! They were intrigued by the hammock and were very jealous that I was floating on a bed of down while they had to sleep on the rocks."

" That was the best night of sleep I've had in a hammock! It was pretty sweet compared to my other non-superior rig with a removable under quilt, with that one it seems I'm constantly adjusting it to keep my feet and one of my hips warm as I shift through the night. The Superior built-in insulated under quilt is the way to go!! And your materials are stinking comfy!"

"I really like the products you are offering. In my opinion, they have made hammock camping more accessible and enjoyable. The Universal Comforter is amazing. The fact it can attached to the bottom of the Superior Hammock and make a winter rated hammock, or attached to the top to create a multi-season pod system that allows for an uncompromised diagonal lay, or simply used as a stand alone top quilt is amazing and there is nothing on the market as versatile or as reasonably priced."

"Amazing product and the customer service was amazing. Excellent communication to resolve a few questions that I had about the product. Highly recommend the Daylite hammock, was exactly the item I needed for the end of a long day of hiking. You will not find a lighter, better made hammock anywhere. Buy with confidence, and if need any assistance the best customer service is an email away."
