Enigma

rated 5 of 5 stars The Enigma top quilt from Enlightened Equipment is an ultralight sleep quilt that keeps you warm at a decent value. The “shiftless” baffles help keep down in place. The pad attachment system works really well to give you the most comfort and options under your quilt. The Enigma has a sewn footbox to maximize weight savings.

Accomplice

rated 5 of 5 stars This is one of the lightest double quilt and IMHO the most versatile one. If you are looking for a double sleeping bag or quilt, this must be one of the top contenders. Backpacking with two small children, finding a lightweight double bag system has been one of critical issue for us. We've used individual bags, and Big Agnes and Nemo double bag systems, but none were light or warm enough. We finally found the answer with Enlightened Equipment's Accomplice. It's highly customizable and the quality… Full review

Revelation

rated 4 of 5 stars Excellent—my primary "bag" for about a year and about 30 nights out, from 60°F to -10°F. The Revelation is now an essential part of my primary sleep system. With typical season, all clothing worn and 3/4 NeoAir pad, I sleep well to 40°F (in a 40°F rated quilt).  When colder, this becomes my inner bag atop several full length pads. My quilt's specs: Revelation, Ready to ship (non-custom) 800 GDD Hydrophobic Down (HyperDry) Temperature: 40°F (5°C) Size: Regular / Wide $240.00 USD.   My… Full review

Revelation

rated 5 of 5 stars This quilt is great for those who feel too confined in a mummy bag and are searching for an ultralight alternative to a sleeping bag that won't sacrifice warmth. As far back as I can remember, I was taught that mummy bags were the best (and effectively the only) way to keep warm in the woods. After all, it makes perfect sense—mummy bags decrease the amount of air around the body and capture all the body heat you can in an enclosed space. Unfortunately, they also restrict movement while you're… Full review

Epiphany Cuben Fiber Quilt

rated 2.5 of 5 stars Light, small, warm, but should breathe better. I have only used this one time on a 50+ mile backpack trip. I therefore want to do some more experimenting so consider these first impressions. I really liked it on first sight as it was small and very light (and mine is a little over stuffed). The first few days were warm and I used it like a blanket (lots of side venting) and had no issues. I was glad to be carrying such a small and light quilt. When we got to higher elevations (Volgesang: I think… Full review
