Description:

The Enigma is the ideal minimalist quilt when weight and simplicity are critical. This quilt specifically features a sewn-closed 3D footbox that provides ample room for your feet while limiting dead air space that needs to be heated. When it’s warm, use it like a blanket and kick your foot out. When it’s cold, cinch down the sides with our pad attachment system. Build your Enigma to meet your performance needs, without carrying any unnecessary weight. The Enigma is the simplest quilt available and is perfect for hikers, canoeists, kayakers, climbers, and cyclists who need minimal weight and maximum warmth.

Details:

  • A sewn-closed 3D footbox minimizing weight and maximizing warmth.
  • Pad attachment system using elastic straps, and clips on each side of the quilt, to keep you securely on your pad, and give you the ability to cinch down the sides on those cold nights.
  • Snap and drawstring neck closer, fits securely around your shoulders to fine-tune draft control.
  • U shaped baffles keep the down where you need it, all night long.
  • Half taper design to minimize weight while reflecting the natural shape of the human body.
  • Ethically sourced down from an RDS certified supplier that verifies that none of the down in the supply chain is acquired through live plucking or forced-feeding.
  • Zero PFC DownTek treated down which helps the down resist moisture longer, and dry out quicker if it does get wet.
  • 10D fabric made of a customized, lightweight and durable nylon that offers breathability and comfort.
  • Optional 20D ripstop nylon that has been customized to increase comfort and offers higher durability and water resistance.
  • Optional 7D micro ripstop nylon for lowest weight options.
  • Handmade in Winona, Minnesota.

Perfect quilt for a great price!!!

I bought this quilt somewhat impulsively as I am currently prepping for the PCT this summer. When it came in the mail, I was already impressed with the weight, comfort, and shape of it; I actually ended up sleeping in it just because for the first week!!! I then took this quilt to the desert in Moab where it dropped down to about 30 degrees one night with wind (I have the 10 degree bag) and it worked great, even cowboy camping!! I am so sure of this quilt for the PCT this summer and already love the customer support at enlightened equipment as well.

Bottom line: less weight, more warmth.

I have the Enigma 20F quilt filled with the 950 down and so far I have tested the quilt once, in an almost freezing night (0 C/32 F) and very moist atmosphere. These are my experiences.

I was lucky enough that I could afford highest quality down (950). Compared to the sleeping bag that I used previously in warmer conditions, this quilt was much warmer while it weighs less. So I believe the extra costs for more expensive goose down pays off.

For the outside fabric I chose the lighter 10D with the 20D "stripes" on the footbox and the neck. This is to protect the bag against condensation on these spots. In the morning my quilt was very wet on the outside from condensation, but the inside of the quilt seemed to be dry. It did not affect the insulation.
I had to pack the quilt in this wet condition, because the sun was not yet out when I left camp. Later that day the quilt dried very fast in the sun (maybe 30 minutes).
The 10D fabric is very light, but very thin. You can actually see the goose down through the fabric. This is good because you can see how the down is distributed. After compressing the quilt, not all spaces are filled with down, so it takes some shaking and moving to get an evenly distributed loft.
The very thin 10D material does mean however that you treat it with special care. My rule is to always keep the quilt inside a drysack and only take it out inside my tent, so I expect no problems with that.

As for the straps: this works o.k. It took me some time to figure out the right position and tightness of the straps. For me it worked best to pull them quite tight, to avoid drafts.
The draft is the only problem I had, I move a lot while sleeping, so I did feel some drafts now and then on my sides or back. Pulling the straps tighter helped.
The footbox of the Enigma is closed, which is a good idea, because you will have no drafts there.

The possibilty of choosing your own colors is a nice-to-have option. I choose orange + yellow because I like bright colors to stay found whenever I might get lost. I know the experts say you should always choose black, because black will dry faster.

All in all I am quite happy with the Enigma because of the bottom line: less weight, more warmth.
