I was looking for a quilt that would pack small enough to fit my bicycle panniers and provide three-season warmth. Most quilts found online were quite expensive and involved a number of months wait for delivery. Taiga Works advertised their Ninja Plus HyperQuilt as being made in Canada and available right away. Better still the price was $100 less than the comparable quilts I had found.
I can't speak to how warm it will be as I have not had the chance to test it under actual camping conditions, however the filling is 850p down and it lofts nicely when removed from the stuff bag. The size is perfect for my 5'-8" body and the footbox has snaps and drawstrings to create a draft-proof, warm home for my toes.
The upper end is nicely notched for my head and has a drawstring for when cocooning is required. There are two sleeping pad straps to hold it in position on my pad throughout the night. These easily detach to allow the quilt to be used as a top blanket and to make getting underneath quite easy.
Snap, stitching, and drawstrings appear to be of good quality and durable. The covering and liner are Dryshell nylon and moisture resistant. The quilt weighs in at 1 pound 5 ounces and compresses down to smaller than a volleyball.
Many, many days and nights backpacking, bikepacking, and sleeping in tents. This is a new purchase and I will amend my review when I have used it a few times.
