With an amazing balance of low weight and high functionality, the Revelation is the choice when you need one piece of gear that will go anywhere you do. When it’s cold simply cinch down the sides with our pad attachment system. When it’s warm, open the zippered footbox completely and use this quilt like a blanket. Choose this Revelation to meet your performance needs, without carrying any unnecessary weight. The Revelation is the most versatile quilt available and is perfect for hikers, canoeists, kayakers, climbers, and cyclists who need minimal weight while being able to adapt to any situation.

If you need a size, temperature, down fill, or color that isn't available here, consider ordering a custom Revelation quilt.

Details:

  • 20” zipper and drawstring to open or close the footbox as needed.

  • Pad attachment system using elastic straps and clips on each side of the quilt to keep you securely on your pad. This also gives you the ability to cinch down the sides on those cold nights for added warmth.

  • 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.

  • Shell made in China. Filled and finished in Winona, Minnesota.

Down with sleeping bags!

I bought this quilt in the spring of 2017 but delayed writing a review until I had used it in varying conditions. This was my first quilt. I HATE sleeping in a sleeping bag, so I was super excited to finally make the switch.

Note: I'm female, 5'6" and mainly backpack in the Sierras but also took the quilt to Wyoming for a week near the Tetons. I always sleep in wool baselayers for warmth and to protect the quilt from my filth.

It's pretty freaky how light this thing is compared to my equivalent 20 degree mummy bag! It seems impossibly light. And while it definitely does NOT keep me as warm as my mummy bag, it's pretty close. It took me a bit to figure out how best to use it for my needs. I always use the straps (make sure you watch a video and are using them properly) and then just adjust them as needed depending on the temps.

In colder temps, I found that snapping the top snap to secure it under my neck and then using the cinch to close it up around my neck worked WONDERS as compared to just pulling it under myself and tucking it and hoping it would stay put. That top snap plus cinching made this far more comfortable for me in colder weather.

Like at least one other person noted, I can't understand WHY they put the cinch mechanism right smack in the middle of the quilt. It's constantly in your face or ear or mouth. It should be relocated to the side or something. When it's cinched tight, it's long enough to generally stay out of your face. But when not cinched, it can be quite annoying. I'm hoping they fix that. But it's still WAY better than my mummy bag and so much more versatile.

I gave it four instead of five stars because of the fact that I don't think it's really quite a 20 degree quilt, considering my 20 degree mummy bag is warmer and shouldn't be. And also because of the annoying cinch. But it's still my favorite piece of equipment and is so much lighter.

Awesome!

I purchased the long/wide version of this before going on a two-week camping trip in Iceland during early June. Used it in temps between ~3 and 16 C (or ~37-60 F), very windy and rainy some nights, with an insulated sleeping pad (sea to summit comfort plus). Have never slept better than with this pad/ bag setup, even with the 24 hours of sunlight and loud bird chirping in Iceland; seriously, my bed at home feels like a downgrade now. I wore a fleece buff (some nights) and light base layer to keep my skin from touching the material and getting it too oily/ sweaty but could have easily gone naked and been comfortable. Most of the time I used it in quilt mode, let the edges hang off the pad onto the floor of the tent, this is super luxurious with the long/wide version and I felt I could roll around and stretch as much as I wanted to without losing coverage (I'm 6' 2", thin) and that I could cover my head with the quilt if I really needed to. On warm nights, I left a limb or two off the pad or left part of me uncovered. I did use it in fully/ partially zipped mode on a few colder nights, no straps, mostly just to try it out, but found this to be too warm for me at the temps I used it at. Very adaptable piece of equipment, super light (sometimes it felt like nothing was on top of me, just warmth!), and packs down really nicely into the bottom of a backpack. Only downsides were the slightly offensive down smell (which went away or I got used to after a couple of nights), and the sticky feeling of the nylon if you get sweaty, which happened when I buttoned/ zipped it up fully. Overall, I'm so, so happy with the purchase; it's a big upgrade from the cheap, bulky rectangular synthetic bag I used previously. It looks very nice too! Can't wait to use it again, I want to try it in freezing temps.
