Alpkit Cloud Cover

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A lightweight and versatile alternative to a full sleeping bag. 750+ fill power hydrophobic goose down quilt. Can be used as a blanket or, at a pinch, the sides can be joined to form a bag. Like my clothing, I like to use layers when it comes to my sleeping kit. I use this as a throw-on blanket when the temperature drops during the night. I have also used it on its own as a blanket during really warm and muggy nights and it worked well. Alpkit are a company that produce quality kit at affordable… Full review

Enlightened Equipment Revelation

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Not recommended. Ordered the Revelation 10-degree quilt and received it at the beginning of March. I had used it once before this on a 45-degree night and was mostly fine, but I finally had the opportunity to try it out in some actually chilly weather a couple of weekends ago and found it severely lacking. The temperature dropped to about 33 degrees and I figured since I had temperature insurance of over 20 degrees I'd be fine. Wrong. I was freezing all night. I am an experienced backpacker and… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

rated 4 of 5 stars The NeoAir UberLite is a welcomed ultralight addition to the NeoAir line-up, filling a niche as Therm-A-Rest's premier summer sleeping pad. It shares the dimensions and comfort of the XLite series, with a savings of about 3.5 oz for a size regular. It sacrifices some warmth, quite noticeable when it gets into the 30’s. The 15D lightweight material is also a bit slippery and less rigid compared to a NeoAir XLite. I was concerned about the durability of such an ultralight product but it survived… Full review

Klymit Inertia X Frame

rated 2 of 5 stars An ultra lightweight sleeping pad that shaves weight and bulk by padding key areas (head, shoulders, hips and feet). It's the smallest and lightest air-filled sleeping pad I've come across. For those who count the grams and have a back hewn from granite this may be for you, but no matter how much I want to like this ultra lightweight (is there a lighter sleeping pad on the market?), ultra compact sleeping pad I found it hard and uncomfortable. Moreover, on anything but level ground I kept slipping… Full review

Katabatic Gear Palisade

rated 5 of 5 stars Fantastic! I used an unzipped regular Marmot Spire down bag for years, and by necessity, it was a bit overkill on warmth. The hood was often in my face, even though I bought it to match the side I tend to sleep on.  This quilt is a way better concept. No hood in the face, down on top, instead of compressed below (or in my case, wasted in unnecessary width, when spread out). I've been using the quilt for three years, many nights per year. It's super well made. Very cozy at its rated temp, when… Full review

The North Face Men's Superlight 0

rated 5 of 5 stars When I bought my NFSL in 1974 it carried a lifetime warranty from NF. I sent the bag to NF in the late '70s for repair and it was returned cleaned, refilled, and repaired. Amazing! I still have this bag and only "retired" it this year. A 45-year run for a $106 investment. Hard to beat value that has been one of the best pieces of gear I've owned.  I've always stored this bag in a large laundry bag to help keep the loft high. At the end of the season I would wash the bag by hand in a bathtub. Since… Full review

Big Agnes Horse Thief SL 35°

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Love this thing. I've had this for several years with use along the lakeshore of Pictured Rocks and temps in high 30's. I wish they still made this bag so I could buy it for my kids now that they are backpacking also. To answer a couple of questions that may resolve issues posted up years earlier than this one: The pillow sack goes inside with you, not hanging off the edge. I believe some of the cold feeling people may be getting is from not using an insulated air mattress; I made that mistake also… Full review

The North Face Men's Superlight 0

rated 5 of 5 stars By today's standards it is not super light, but when it came out it was. Dacron weighed about 9# vs. about 3.5# for the North Face Superlight (NFSL). In 1968, I had used a Dacron 88 bag for high country experience and never got a good night's sleep. Froze once—learned lesson. In 1969, bought the NFSL from a local sports store that did rental toward purchase and they suggested it had maybe two more seasons left to it. Bought it for the astronomical price of $95 (New it was $299. At that time I… Full review

The North Face Dolomite Double Down 20F/-7C

rated 5 of 5 stars Roominess, warmth, possibility for snuggling. Late May Algonquin Park trip. It was my wife's idea to change it up from individual bags to one, double bag. I was skeptical. May in the park can see overnight temps close to freezing and I always associated double bags with fair-weather, car campers. I was wrong. Quite wrong. Not only did this bag keep us both warm, it offered more flexibility in sleeping position and actually lowered the overall weight/bulk of our pack (canoe camping). Full review
