Therm-a-Rest Apogee Quilt

rated 4 of 5 stars A great introductory quilt available (as of Spring 2019) at a great introductory price. Neither the lightest nor most compact choice on the market, but this synthetic quilt is still a great addition to any budget backpacker's gear closet. In an effort to find an ever lighter base pack weight (yes, I've been spending too much time on the Ultralight subreddit these days) and also find a lighter weight bag for 3-season use that will fit into my MEC Brio 75L's sleeping bag compartment, I spent a fair… Full review

Therm-a-Rest NeoAir UberLite

rated 4 of 5 stars Sooooo light!!! Not very warm, but also not terribly crinkly loud. Holy moly is this thing shockingly light and tiny. That is so great for solo travelers and ultra light folk. It's amazing. And I'm OK with using a lighter R value with a warmer bag and if needed a Z Lite or emergency blanket under me for cooler hikes/travel. It takes more to get it inflated, but the weight savings!!! Wow.  Full review

Enlightened Equipment Accomplice

rated 5 of 5 stars This quilt is warm and light. Excellent for backpacking or kayak camping. Packs to a small space. PS:my orange kitten thinks it neato! We were both warm enough for comfortable sleep during September in northern Minnesota. The fit of the quilt is perfect for two. No problem with moisture issues. Excellent packability; very compressible. Bag was easy to use and held up well.  Full review

Klymit Static V

rated 3 of 5 stars A medium light sleeping pad that fills easily. I bought this to use exclusively on a short cycle tour (30 days). I really like it's light weight and minimal packed space. I felt secure and comfortable on this pad. Its air chamber design does a good job keeping you in place and I'm a pretty active sleeper, switching between sides. My bag was the lighter Sierra Design's Zissou. A good system for moderate low temps. About midway through my tour I noticed that it was not holding air completely through… Full review

Marmot Teton

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Astonishingly good for the weight and pack size. Astonishingly good for the weight and pack size. Kept me warm down to the coldest of British temperatures. Furthermore, weight is very low and sat alongside my other lightweight gear very efficiently. Used in the Lake District for several nights with barely any problems whatsoever. Did get a little wet on day 3 though, some of its efficiency was temporarily lost, but when the sun came out I was able to dry it fairly quickly during a lunch break. Full review

MEC Kelvin 3.8 Sleeping Pad

rated 3.5 of 5 stars When inflated, it's three times thicker and up to twice as warm as a 1/2" closed-cell foam pad. And when rolled up, this pad takes half to a third the space (volume) of that same closed-cell foam pad. Size - rolled: 30 x 16 cm (12" x 6")Size - inflated: 183 x 51 x 3.8 cm (72" x 20" x 1.5")Weight: 775 g (1 lb 11 oz) Thickness - 3.8cm (1.5"):This is pretty average for these "self-inflating" type sleeping pads. They called it a "Medium-Thickness" pad in the literature. For a side-sleeper like me,… Full review

Sierra Designs Cloud 800 / 20 Degree

rated 4.5 of 5 stars One of the best option for a warm and light sleeping bag. I was really skeptical with the zipper-less design of the bag but it proved to be a non-issue. It's quite a warm bag but I'm generally a warm sleeper so I may not the be the best gauge for that, but it seems to do the job well in that regard. The fit is excellent with lots of room to move about. I would classify it as a wider than normal mummy bag. I'm 6' tall and the fit is perfect. The added foot vents are a nice touch when you need to… Full review

Arrowhead New River UnderQuilt

rated 5 of 5 stars Made-to-order synthetic hammock underquilt, full-length. The single most expensive piece of camping equipment I own, and worth it. Warmth: It's a full length quilt, rated (when I bought it) to 20 degrees; the website currently says 25. I have slept in it comfortably at 15-20 degrees, and windy, but with a hot water bottle, and a poncho wrapped around the outside of the quilt. Given that I don't sleep warm, I think the rating is more than fair. Fit & Comfort: The quilt is available in several… Full review

Enlightened Equipment Revelation

rated 5 of 5 stars Light, warm, multipurpose and very packable, what's not to love? I use my 20-degree quilt in temps from 70-20 degrees. I can two of the Revelation quilts, a 20-degree and a 40-degree. Both are long, wide versions. I have been using both for several years. They can also zip together to use as a double quilt, if you bring a friend. Quilts are perfect for people who don't enjoy a tight claustrophobic feel while they sleep. It is far more like your quilt at home. The shell material is lighter in the… Full review
