Exceptional loft. Excellent build quality. Extremely light.
I've had my 20-degree Enigma Apex synthetic for about 6 months and have used it on numerous trips. Most recently I slept with it in very damp conditions in Mount Rainier National Park with an overnight low of 29 degrees. The quilt performed similarly to the 20-degree synthetic sleeping bag which it replaced in my backpack. The quilt, however, is far, far lighter and easier to stuff into a compression sack. The loft of the synthetic insulation used by Enlightened Equipment is truly amazing. It's similar to an eiderdown bag which I used to own. However, in the damp conditions of the Pacific Northwest, no down can compare to synthetic insulation for warmth on multi-day trips. The straps provided with the quilt worked exactly as described in the instructions. I am 5 feet, 9 inches tall, and I wish I had ordered the longer version of the quilt because I like to sleep with a blanket over my face. The regular quilt comes up to my chin. The materials and build quality are superb. I was very happy to be able to support a manufacturer which makes its products in the United States.
