Description:

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, 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. Build your 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.

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, 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.

A perfect top quilt if you know the limitations of quilts

The craftsmanship in EE quilts is excellent. I've been using my Revelation for almost a year and it is probably the most comfortable insulation in my inventory. The fabric is soft, but has not lost a single feather, the stitching is superior, and the baffle structure does not allow for cold spots (read more about the toe box below).
Having read some of the negative reviews here, I want to address some issues people seem to have.
1) No top quilt made, or sleeping bag for that matter, will overcome a sleeping pad with an R value inadequate to your use. If you are sleeping in sub-freezing temperatures with an R3.7 or the like, you are going to get cold even in a -20 bag or quilt. Take something like a Therm-a-Rest XTherm with a 5 or 6 R value, and don't blame the quilt for heat lost to the ground.
2) A quilt is a quilt. Tuck it around you, or heat will escape the sides (even if strapped around your pad. If you can't handle this, then get a mummy bag and carry the extra weight. Top Quilts are for hammocking and lightweight/ultralight backpacking.
3) This model has an open toe box that cinches closed. Some heat will be lost. The upside is that you can open it up completely and use it like a blanket - great for a wrap while cooking breakfast on that cold morning, but bad for sleeping in temps at or near the rated low of the bag. Wear some good socks and this will fix your problem. I like the possum down socks from Zpacks for sleeping socks. Or, you can pick one of EE's other models that has a fully closed toe box.

In general, if shaving weight is not your primary objective, then always get a bag 10-20 degrees colder than what you think you need. Down is great in that it won't overheat you until it's just much much hotter than it's rating. It regulates heat far far better than synthetics.

Quilt and sleeping bag ratings are NOT comfort ratings. They are survival ratings.

So, to sum up, if you know down bags, and understand top quilts and their limitations, EE's quilts are outstanding. The fabric is perfect and the craftwork is top notch.

Revelation 950DT 10F Long Wide (weight 23.45)

Brilliant ! I'm 6.3, 190lbs. Ordered this custom made with a mountain trekking holiday in mind - big changes in elevation and temp. Worked perfectly. I found Enlightened while searching for 'dbl width sleeping bags' (mentally scarred by trips in my youth with sleeping bags that made me feel like a python's lunch). Informed and impressed by the company's videos, I almost went 'Convert' but finally decided on Revelation. Customization options are fantastic. Product arrived promptly (to Asia). Quality 100%. Returning to hiking/camping scene after near 30yr interlude, I had the luxury to re-equip my armoury basically from scratch with high-end gear. I must say that of all the nice things I got to use on this trip, this quilt was my favourite. Superbly flexible: totally snug when temp dipped below freezing, still fabulous half draped in F60s. Very lightweight and compressible in the pack. Awesome product.
