rated 5 of 5 stars The Katabatic Gear Alsek is the most comfortable and functional quilt that I have used. It is well-designed, durable, and conservative in its temperature rating, such that it really stands out amongst the competition. It has exceeded my expectations for warmth, comfort, and reliability. *I listed the origin of my quilt as a Pro and the expense as a Con, understanding that they are directly related. When I purchased my quilt in May 2016, all production was done in the USA. Katabatic Gear now offers… Full review

Flex 22°F

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Excellent quality and warmer than advertised quilt. A blanket style sleeping bag that will truly keep the cold out. The Katabatic attachment system, down filled collar, and draft blocking foot box closure guard you from the cold. When you need some ventilation, the zippered foot box allows you to completely open to a blanket. The options in between are endless, and create a truly flexible sleep system. After very long research on all kinds of quilts and sleeping bags I decided on the Katabatic Flex… Full review

Bristlecone Bivy

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a 6'6'' ultralight bivy which is not waterproof. I use it underneath a tarp as protection from wind and bugs. This bivy weighs 235g including a ziploc bag.

It protects against wind, water spray, and bugs and adds more protection against cold to your sleeping bag. The mesh panel is large enough and when closed… Full review


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. The bag is built very well especially for a lightweight bag. I generally sleep very cold, and I have tried many other bags and have never been able to sleep in them… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Holy moly, this quilt is incredible! So light, and very well crafted. This is the greatest warm season quilt I've ever used. It is lightweight, high quality, and a great option in warm season use. It has a great system to attach to the sleeping pad, if needed — no drafts or cold spots. The footbox has extra space and down, for increased comfort. Getting in and out, with no zipper, is a cinch. As it is down, you have to be conscious of moisture. Also, as it is a quilt, you have to consider the… Full review
