rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, lightweight, versatile, and durable. Highly recommend. Great quilt/bag! I've slept in it down to 30°F in this bag with a Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm sleeping pad underneath with my long underwear and jacket underneath. I got this bag to cut down on weight and size for backpacking, but have mostly used this bag when car camping.

As a baseline, I slept in long underwear (SmartWool merino wool lightweight top and bottoms)… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars A very warm, very light, and very comfortable alternative to the traditional mummy sleeping bag. Once you try a quilt you'll never go back to a standard mummy style bag. I've been tossing about the idea of a backpacking quilt or some time now and finally took the plunge. It's too bad I didn't do this years ago.  For my first foray into the world of backpacking quilts I chose a (very) small company located in Wheatridge Colorado — Katabatic Gear.  I made this decision because I'm familiar with… Full review
