rated 4 of 5 stars Solid lightweight option for those looking to spend a significant amount of time outdoors in a variety of environments. This quilt is also great for those more mobile sleepers who never seem to wake up in the position they went to sleep in. While I am a big fan of this product, I wouldn't recommend this to less-seasoned individuals who are heading out for shoulder season trips. I have had the pleasure of using this quilt for over 200 nights of outdoor slumber. What follows is my detailed review. Full review

Revelation APEX

rated 4 of 5 stars Revelation APEX 20 and 40 degree Fahrenheit quilts. 40-degree quilt: Good winter top layer so far. 20-degree quilt: F.O.B. (fresh out of box), but looking forward to using it soon. Background The Revelation APEX is Enlightened Equipment's Revelation quilt that uses CLIMASHIELD APEX synthetic insulation, instead of down. The Revelation APEX was previously branded by EE as the Prodigy. Other Trailspace members have written reviews about both the Revelation down quilt and the Prodigy that I suggest… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars Versatile, well made, warm and light. Comfortable in the desert and in the High Sierra. This quilt delivers—great for long distance backpackers/bike touring.

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight, affordable comfort for the UL backpacking dude or dudette! Reaffirming what has been said before. The Revelation is a great lightweight quilt for three-season backpacking. This 20-degree version is warm enough for summer cooler temperature at altitude. I don't mess with the supplied straps and I like how small this packs down. For the price, I believe it's a good value for three-season overnights. Used it for eight nights to section hike the JMT in Yosemite.  Full review


rated 1.5 of 5 stars Bad customer service and policy. I hiked the PCT 2017. I had this 0-degree bag and I was freezing at night and I did strap it correctly. I came to the conclusion that the seller I called sold me a quilt too small for me. So I called them back after three weeks on trail. They told me their policy is only 40 days and I passed it (compared to a year for all other major sleeping bag companies). They didn't want to help me at all and preferred to let me freeze than exchange it for a bigger one or give… Full review
