Picture it...

You're at a family get together and Great-Aunt Marcia asks what you've been up to and where you're working? Without hesitation, you say, "Enlightened Equipment" - there are sounds of ooo's and ahhh's from everyone around. They all begin to ask you about this Enlightened Equipment and what you do for them (except your cousin who sits in the corner jealously listening) and you go on and on about this small business and all the amazing things you've learned and done in a short time! Pretty neat if we say so ourselves.

Ready to make this a reality?

We seek people who are energetic, self-motivated and have strong attention to detail (but doesn't everyone?)

How do you use a sleeping quilt?1

Sleeping quilts are used as a part of a sleep system that usually includes your tent, your sleeping pad, your sleeping quilt or bag, and base layer cloths. Without each of these pieces accounted for in the conditions you expect to be sleeping in, your system may fail, and your other parts of your sleep system cannot make up for it. For example, your 0° sleeping quilt will not be able to keep you warm if your heat is lost beneath you by having an inadequate sleeping pad..

How do you attach a quilt to a sleeping pad?1

Quilts use strap systems to attach the quilt to your sleeping pad. This usually includes some combination of either flat straps, or loop straps, which loop around the pad, then attach the quilt via clips..

Is a quilt or sleeping bag warmer? 1

Both Sleeping Quilts and Bags use temperature rating to measure their level of warmth, meaning that a 20° sleeping quilt should be equally warm (when used properly) against a 20° sleeping bag. In extreme cold conditions, having your body fully encapsulated by a sleeping bag may create extra layers of failsafe for keeping out moisture and drafts.

Are quilts good for side sleepers? 1

Because of their ability to be opened and moved within more freely, quilts are generally better for side sleepers. Quilts allow you to sleep more naturally while in blanket-mode, and allow you to choose how secure/tight to your body the quilt sits on colder nights.

What’s the difference between a sleeping bag and sleeping quilt?1

Sleeping bags fully encompass the user head-to-toe, while sleeping quilts only cover the most necessary parts of the body. Sleeping quilts lack the hood of a sleeping bag, as well as the insulation underneath your body in exchange for a more highly versatile sleeping experience. Sleeping quilts can be formed as blankets, or closer to full bags, depending on the temperatures and variables the night calls for, while sleeping bags will only wrap around the user fully in the 'mummy bag' fashion.
