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
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. Overall I loved this bag-alternative. I was very concerned with 1) lowering the base weight of my pack and 2) staying warm at night. These bags are custom made, so here are my specs: Down Fill: 950, Down Treatment: DownTek Water-Repellent Down Temperature: 10°F (-12°C) Length: Regular - 6', Width: Regular - 54" Warmth - It's warm!

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
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
This simple, kilt style, silnylon wrap is great for those who hate wearing rain pants because they need more ventilation. Light to carry and easy to put on, especially compared to rain pants, the wrap works best on open trails and paired with a jacket or short poncho. So often I find that getting raingear out and on before I'm soaked is a pipedream. Combined with the steamy interior I often opted to just get wet from the rain rather than bother unless it was really cold. I'd just hike faster to… Full review
