Snugpak Insulated Jungle Travel Blanket

user rating: 5 of 5 (5 reviews)

A lightweight quilt for around 50deg F. One side is waterproof-breathable and the other is a nice taffeta fabric that is quite soft and comfortable. It is about the same price as a MilSpec poncho liner (woobie) but pretty much better in every way. Lighter, more compressible, water resistant, just as warm.

Reasons to Buy

  • Waterproof breathable
  • Warm
  • Lightweight
  • Cheap price for the quality
  • Works great with a space blanket

Reasons to Avoid

  • Not as warm and compressible as down
  • Water on the edges can leak in
  • Not as versatile as the Snugpak Poncho Liner

I have used my Jungle Blanket and its close cousin the Snugpak Poncho Liner countless times. I use both far more often than I do actual sleeping bags anymore. Both are really versatile and far superior to the MilSpec poncho liner or in my opinion a warm weather sleeping bag.  The outer shell is a soft but waterproof breathable nylon ripstop which is great. Besides being able to shed a light rain it means you can boost your temp by throwing a space blanket over top. This combo reflects your body heat back and traps air but also collects the water your body respirates during the night.

Aegismax Wind Hard Quilt

user rating: 4.5 of 5 (1 review)

If you're looking for a quilt that won't break the bank and you don't expect cold temperatures (sub 40° F / 5° C ), this Aegismax Wind Hard quilt is an excellent choice.

Reasons to Buy

  • Affordable
  • Lightweight
  • Well constructed
  • Accurate temp rating
  • Simple to use for sleeping
  • Stuff sack/ hang bag included

Reasons to Avoid

  • No instructions provided
  • Complicated to "wear"

TEMPERATURE RATING The Aegismax Wind Hard quilt has been in my sights for awhile. I finally picked one up and was able to get out on a multi-day backpacking trip in some perfect weather to put this quilt to the test. The company rates the quilt at 0° - 5° Celsius (32° - 41° F) and my personal experience matches this assessment fairly close. As luck would have it, I had a hiking partner trying this quilt for the first time on this trip as well —Double review! My first night of testing the temperature dropped from 50°F down to 34°F in the morning when I woke up.

Pendleton Grand Canyon National Park Throw

user rating: 5 of 5 (2 reviews)

The Pendleton Grand Canyon Throw is a terrific item for extreme outdoor athletes, and for those who love to sleep in style. Not only is it warm, but it's also durable and built to be the perfect survival item.

Reasons to Buy

  • High quality
  • Made with 100% Virgin Wool
  • Durable
  • Soft to the touch
  • Can be embroidered for a personal touch
  • Decorative
  • Made in the USA

Reasons to Avoid

  • A little on the pricey side

Most backpackers are known for skimping on luxury items. When you have so little space in your pack, you want to fill it with just the necessities. But Pendleton blends the world of luxury with the world of necessities by providing some of the market's best wool blankets. The Pendleton Grand Canyon Throw is among the most popular of the brand’s National Park blankets—and with good reason. The navy color with golden highlights make this product extremely eye-catching. But it’s also a versatile item, allowing users to prepare for the worst while in the backcountry.  Josh models the Pendleton Grand Canyon Throw MSRP: $199 Material: Wool Blanket Style The Pendleton Grand Canyon Throw measures 54 by 76 inches in size, making it a relatively...

Enlightened Equipment Revelation

user rating: 3.5 of 5 (14 reviews)

The Enlightened Equipment Revelation offers a versatile and highly customizable quilt design at an economical price. My quilt has met my expectations for warmth, adaptability, and durability. Although, it does suffer some significant drawbacks from having under-filled baffles, which is why I give it a lower rating. Recently, EE has acknowledged this issue and has been adding more down to their baffles, so this may be a thing of the past.

Reasons to Buy

  • Lightweight and compact
  • A good summer quilt
  • Made in Minnesota, USA
  • Fully customizable
  • Versatile

Reasons to Avoid

  • Down shifts
  • Baffles are underfilled
  • Pad attachment system ineffective

Conditions: I received my quilt August 2016 and have since used it for multi-day trips on the Florida and Appalachian trails. I carried it for the entire length of New Zealand’s Te Araroa, about 3000 kms and 4 months in duration. I will be taking it on a thru-hike of the PCT but will probably switch to my warmer Katabatic Gear Alsek 22*F quilt when I hit the high elevations of the Sierras. Here are the specs on my particular quilt: Weight: 15.7 oz Colors: black interior/burnt orange exterior Material: 10D nylon Fill: 900FP DownTek Dimensions: Regular length=6', Regular width=54" Accessories: 2 pad straps (0.4 ounces each), stuff sack, storage sack I wanted to mention, a month after I ordered my quilt, Enlightened Equipment lowered their prices...

Prima-Care Medical Supplies Foil Mylar Rescue Blanket

user rating: 4 of 5 (1 review)

This may be one of the best inventions and, in my opinion, one of the most dangerous gear pieces out there for inexperienced users. It is best used as a heat reflector under a tent, as an under-quilt and covering for a hammock, or used to make a heated shelter. Can also be used as a fireplace heat reflector or as shade from the hot sun. I do not recommend using this as your primary blanket as it only reflects up to 90% of your body heat and it does not generate heat only reflect.

Reasons to Buy

  • lightweight
  • flexible
  • compact
  • reflective
  • has multi uses and purposes

Reasons to Avoid

  • Noisy if used as a blanket
  • Can easily tear
  • Do not be use as a primary blanket

  Prima Care Medical Supplies- Foil Mylar Rescue Blanket Designed for NASA, the Mylar Solar Blanket can be seen & sold on every camping and outdoor website. Solar blankets come in an assortment of different thicknesses, lengths, widths, and percentage of heat reflected back to person.  I have seen these Mylar Solar Blankets everywhere online such as EMS, REI, even hardware stores and Walmart. They are in people's EDC bag, bugout bag, car, or truck, sitting there waiting to be opened for the first time in a real life emergency. But that is just it...

Therm-a-Rest Argo Blanket

user rating: 4 of 5 (1 review)

A lightweight synthetic fill blanket big enough to cover two intimate sleepers on summer nights. Could be improved with a foot pocket to keep bare tootsies from escaping.

Reasons to Buy

  • Just right for summer nights
  • Big enough for two
  • Lightweight
  • Easy to wash

Reasons to Avoid

  • Could use a foot pocket

  The Tomato We call it The Tomato, and we bought it to address a specific problem that we anticipated during our 25-day hike of the Kungsleden in northern Sweden: About 2/3 of the trail is above the arctic circle and much of it is also treeless, raising the possibility that late night or wee-hours sun might warm up our tent and render sleeping conditions uncomfortably warm if we used our 5˚C/40˚F Enlightened Equipment Accomplice double quilt. So we needed something lightweight and compact that would keep us not-too-warm on those arctic summer nights.

Eagles Nest Outfitters Ember 2

user rating: 3.5 of 5 (5 reviews)

A high quality, well engineered, lightweight, reasonably priced solution for keeping warm and cozy during cool nights in a hammock. Highly recommended for backpackers, cyclists, and rowers desiring a warm and comfortable multi-season hammock sleep experience.

Reasons to Buy

  • Perfect cut and fit for most typical hammocks
  • Little to no adjustments needed during setup or with extended use
  • Very fast and simple setup and take down
  • Excellent combination of size, weight, performance, and value
  • Comes with a nylon stuff sack and a storage bag

Reasons to Avoid

  • Compression straps would be a nice addition to the stuff sack.

I am new to hammock camping after vowing to no longer crawl around on the ground and suffer the slings and arrows of rocks, twigs, bumps, lumps, uneven terrain, sore backs, and floods intruding on my former ground sleeping experience. Hammock camping offers most people a totally new type of outdoor sleep experience that offers comfort and expanded options in selecting a non-traditional campsite location not requiring a perfectly flat, level, and dry location. OK, that is the good news. There is a potential downside to hammock camping that is however easily remedied.

Big Agnes Kings Canyon UL Quilt

user rating: 4 of 5 (1 review)

Great lightweight quilt for those hot summer nights.

Reasons to Buy

  • Weight
  • Warmth
  • Compact

Reasons to Avoid

  • Price
  • 45-degree rating is a little generous

Having always used sleeping bags, I was looking for an inexpensive summer weight quilt to find out if I would like quilts better than a bag. This one was available from for $128 so I decided it would be the test subject. So far I have gotten 11 nights under it in temps ranging from 43 to 65 degrees. The quilt weighed in at 17 ounces on my scale with stuff sack and shockcord. Compresses small and fluffs back up easily. Warmth: The manufacturer lists the lower comfort limit as 45 degrees.

Under Quilt

Eagles Nest Outfitters Blaze

user rating: 3.5 of 5 (1 review)

The ENO Blaze underquilt will allow you to enjoy using your hammock well into 3 season and some milder 4 season use. Simple to use, lightweight, and well constructed, the ENO Blaze underquilt will keep you warm so that you can get that wonderful night’s sleep you expect from your hammock.

Reasons to Buy

  • Moderately lightweight
  • DWR ripstop nylon construction
  • Easy and fast installation
  • Compresses down for easy packing
  • Accurate temperature rating of 30-40°F
  • Differentially cut baffled construction
  • Available from many vendors both online and in stores

Reasons to Avoid

  • No baffle to ensure a consistent snug and “airtight” fit without adjusting shockcords
  • Excessive length on cords
  • No included s-biners to keep underquilt securely attached while in use
  • High MSRP of $299

What’s Included? In the package you will receive the underquilt, a stuff sack, and a storage bag. Summary: I tested the ENO Blaze Underquilt for a total of 18 nights, six of these nights were in the backcountry, while the others were conducted in my backyard. I tested the underquilt in temperatures ranging from 25-45°F. I found the temperature rating of 30-40°F to be accurate. I was only very slightly chilled at 25°F, and this was easily overcome by placing a fleece pullover under me. Overall I feel this is a very good quality, easily obtainable, although slightly higher priced, underquilt for three-season hammockers, and could be pushed into some milder four-season temperatures.

Therm-a-Rest Vesper 32F/0C Quilt

user rating: 3.5 of 5 (1 review)

The Therm-A-Rest Vesper 32 Quilt is a good ultralight quilt...if judged on its Comfort temperature rating and not its Lower Limit. As such, it should really be titled the Vesper 41F Quilt. It sports high quality materials and is extremely comfortable in temperate conditions. Breaching the lower 40's, I struggled to keep drafts out, mainly because of the design of the quilt opening and inability to close it sufficiently. The quilt could be improved with some simple modifications of the footbox length/width, shape of the opening, and better pad attachments/closure methods. It serves well as an ultralight and compact summer sleep system for fast packing.

Reasons to Buy

  • Quality 900FP hydrophobic down and materials
  • Supremely comfortable (w/in comfort temp range)
  • Ultralight and compact
  • Minimalist features
  • A great summer quilt

Reasons to Avoid

  • Cold spots started in the mid to low-40's
  • Pad attachment system is very lacking
  • Narrow and short-in-length footbox
  • U-Shaped opening at footbox allows drafts
  • Perimeter side baffles under-filled
  • Potential quality control issue with collar snap and drawstring.
  • One color, cannot customize size / colors
