Version reviewed: Long

This quilt is lightweight, very compact, and ultra warm. If you are looking to cut weight and save space without compromise this is the quilt for you.


  • Warm
  • Lightweight
  • Packs small


  • A little pricey

I bought this quilt because I got claustrophobic being confined in a mummy bag. I began using my mummy bag as a quilt and realized how much wasted space and weight I was carrying this way.

I purchased the midrange level quilt 800 fill/long and when I received it was skeptical if it was going to be warm enough when I saw the size of it. I took it to the test and went into the high Sierras and was sweating in 30 degree weather. The temperature dropped down to 19 degrees. I was sleeping on an insulated air mattress wearing a pair of shorts and t-shirt. I stayed warm enough that I was sweating.

This quilt allows you open up and ventilate very easily so you can regulate your comfort zone. After taking this quilt out on three separate week-long hikes there is no way I will ever go back to a sleeping bag. I love this quilt enough I would trust it on a winter trip. It is a 3-plus-season quilt even being rated at 30 degrees.

This is a must have for any hiker wanting to cut weight and space without fear of being cold.

Decent features. But there was a miscommunication from the owner that caused a sleepless and cold night for me.


  • Design features were good - I liked the cutout in the middle to wear in the morning to stay warm/dry any condensation


  • Didn't perform as expected nor as assured by company
