Just received my revolt under quilt. I bought it to use with my DutchWare chameleon hammock and it’s perfect. Could not be happier. I’ll be using it as I prepare for my 2019 AT thru hike and throughout my hike.
The Revolt is an underquilt designed to keep your backside warm while you’re in your hammock. The extremely adaptable suspension allows the Revolt to be used with almost any hammock, and you can even fine tune the position of the underquilt easily while laying down. On warmer or colder nights, you can also adjust the shock cords at either end of the underquilt to help control temperature. Build your Revolt to meet your performance needs without carrying any unnecessary weight.
KARO baffles to keep down where you need it.
Differentially cut inner and outer fabrics to allow down to stay fully lofted.
Adaptable suspension for use with almost any hammock.

Just received my revolt under quilt. I bought it to use with my DutchWare chameleon hammock and it’s perfect. Could not be happier. I’ll be using it as I prepare for my 2019 AT thru hike and throughout my hike.
My Revolt 20 under quilt just arrived and I couldn't wait. I hung my hammock from the rafters in the basement to give it a go. The suspension is perfect, even reaching my 12' hammock ends with room to stretch. I got it, got out to make two minor adjustments, and it was perfect. The gathers and main lines give just the right amount of stretch for a perfect snug fit that does not limit the loft in any way. The insulation feels right on the mark for a 20 degree rating. All other issues seem perfect - stitching is excellent, and the overall package is very light and packable. I can't imagine a UQ being better in any way. This is exactly what I would expect after using the Revelation for almost a year. Enlightened Equipment just makes amazing insulation. End of story.
Purchased the revolt 10 degree 950 fill 75". I have 100's of nights on trail in hammocks and no stranger to UQ's. This was my first EE product and I have many friends who own their bags and top quilts who are very happy. The materials were buttery soft. The stitching and elastics were perfect. Attachment to my hammock was super easy and fast. My first and only trip with the revolt was in the end of September in Yellowstone for 7 nights along the Thorofare and South Boundary Trail. Dipped down to mid 30's most nights maybe high 20's on one night. Unfortunately, there were cold spots throughout the bag. Despite continuous fluffing and trying to redistribute the down, there was simply not enough down to fill every pocket. You could hold up and see where there was just not enough down and half of each pocket was empty. Choices had to be made to stay warm at night. I shifted the down up towards my mid-section and head and wrapped jackets around my legs. Not the first time I had to make inferior items work on trail but disappointing considering the toasty nights I was looking forward to with this upgraded purchase.
Psst, hey, wanna be warm when your hanging in your hammock?
Get yourself a Revolt!
EE has made a GREAT underquilt, the Revolt is very well constructed, super adjustable and above all WARM!
The draft collars on both ends allow the quit to be used in various temperatures and are easy to reach while in the hammock.
The suspension system is easy to attach and (they aren't joking) extremely adaptable.
I am very pleased with this UQ, the EE team should be extra proud of this one.
So I also did a review on the Revelation top quilt and I'm having similar issues with the bottom quilt. I have the 20 degree version and while I fluff it well, store it uncompressed, etc. I have a really hard time keeping the down uniform to prevent cold spots. I have several other quilts with no problems but perhaps there is just too much fabric to keep the down in place. Holding either quilt up to a light confirms my suspicions and I have tried on multiple trips to dial it in but I am simply not pleased with either setup. From a quality perspective the quilt is great but having so much empty space for the down to move around creates big empty spaces and I have unfortunately decided to look for something else. The quilt is the 20 degree model.
Virtually perfect craftsmanship; comfortable in most night temperatures.
I have no complaints at all about my under quilt. I was able to get a wonderfully warm quilt, of the perfect length, and in colors that match my hammock and it still weighs less than my old pad. I love sleeping in my hanging cocoon of comfort. I've already ordered a second under quilt and a top quilt. This is a great company that makes a quality product.
Do yourself a favor and purchase this! I know it is a larger purchase and you can find a lower priced underquilt, but it is worth it in the long run. Best purchase I have made for my hammock camping. It packs down very small and is super lightweight.
Lightweight, compressible, easy to set up. Best underquilt out there. I will be purchasing a top quilt to go with it this summer/fall.
Great, durable lightweight gear. Shipped and received within given window. Would recommend and will buy again.
Best purchase I have added to my gear! The quality of craftsmanship is superb and well worth the price and wait time. My 65" 10°F Revolt is ridiculously light, surprisingly thick and extremely warm. I've had it down to the low 20°s in very windy conditions, and I had to vent my top quilt due to being hot. I have no doubts it can get me to the low teens comfortably. Be sure to get some mini carabiners for suspension (the stock plastic hooks look fragile), and be sure to get the quilt dialed in before you take it out. It is critical to get the ends cinched properly to prevent drafts. Thanks EE- you've made my backpacking journeys much more enjoyable!
I have fit it onto two different hammock designs, always able to adjust perfectly. I have a 40* and a 20*, they are both quote comfortable at 36 air temps with light wind testing fully clothed. Next month we will be doing a few nights and will update finding.
This Underquilt is awesome, super lightweight and toasty in the cold weather. Thanks again EE team!
I had a chance to use my Revolt during Boy Scout winter camp recently. I have been using an Exped Down mat in my hammock for years. I did not realize how limiting my Exped is until I tried the Revolt. The Revolt was easy peasy to set up and adjust. It allowed me to move around in my hammock as I pleased. It took me a few minutes to get warm, but once I got, I stayed warm all night. It got down to the mid twenties with wind guts up to 35 miles per hour. I stayed comfortable every night all night long. If you are going to winter camp in a hammock, I recommend investing in a Revolt. I got zero degree under quilt because I have a problem keeping my feet warm. It is not a problem any more!
I am one of the legion who immediately took to hammock camping. In a persistent and determined effort to make my own way, I initially avoided purchasing a UQ. I tried every conceivable method of bottom insulation to avoid the purchase. I slept miserably, even bitterly, for two years within an array of home-made contraptions. Finally, it was with a degree of resignation that I purchased a UQ from EE. I'm now happy to say that I am a convert. I sleep wonderfully, there's nothing like the "nest" that this item creates. The quality and craftsmanship of the item is superb. I have purchased two, one rated for 0* and one rated for 40*. I'll probably purchase another (20*) in the future. My advice to anyone looking to make this purchase: avoid the misery, pull the trigger. I've never questioned the investment.
My wife and I each purchased the 950 down 20 degree revolt and loved every minute of our sleep. We went to Cranberry Wilderness, WV in mid November and the thermometer showed 17 degrees. After a full day of backpacking, the last thing I want to worry about is if I am going to sleep cold. My wife was surprised at how warm this quilt kept her throughout the night. This underquilt packs down and stows nicely when coupled with a sea summit dry stuff sack. We both ordered the 75" and are both under 5' 10", we wanted to ensure we could lay any which way and never worry about being exposed to bare hammock. The shock cords make for quick and snug setup, never felt a draft. This underquilt is worth every penny. We will be saving to purchase the 30 degree enigma.
I purchased a 30 degree and it kept me warm down to 30 or slightly below. Got a 20 on the way! Nice piece of gear.
I am new to hammocks but am totally sold on the benefits to my sleep. However, I was dubious of the underquilt idea. Spent last fall and summer with an sleeping pad to keep my backside warm and that seemed fine. Yes ,there was some futzing to get it to stay in the hammock but really didn't seem like much...that is until I experienced the REVOLT. Right out of the bag and onto the hammock in 60 seconds flat first try. The mini carabiners make quick work of set up. The shockcords do indeed make it simple to adjust while in the hammock. And the best part, I was toasty warm at 30 degrees. I have no doubt the 20* rating is right. It stayed in place all night without any futzing needed. Best night sleep!
Two concerns at first were length and material. It looks very short but it does measure 5'5". I am 5'6". Once in the hammock though I curl up and felt plenty covered. When I order again, I think I will order the long just to keep my brain from worrying about my feet or head hanging over the edge of the the warm zone.
The material is very lightweight. It feels like it could easily snag on any branch. I would rather have the lightweight however and take extra care when handling it than have heavier weight which due to the nature of the product would never be heavy enough to warrant careless handling.
I strongly recommend this product and am extremely pleased with the purchase.
I bought the 10° short with 900 fill and it has kept me toasty warm down to ~20° with a 20° top quilt and minimal base layer. I am confident that I can push all EE gear to its rated temp or even slightly beyond. I am 5' 11", 185#, and sleep pretty warm to begin with but seriously, stop wasting time with sleeping pads or blankets and save up for an underquilt. It is by far one of my favorite pieces of gear now
I took my new Revelation and Revolt out to Shenandoah NP. Both are rated to 40; temps dips slightly below that at night, with a steady breeze through the night, getting stronger as day broke. I stayed warm and comfortable. I had no cold spots. Just before dawn, I put on a fleece pullover; the only other insulation I wore was a balaclava. I clipped the underquilt to the hammock 'biners and left them attached, so I pull the assembled hammock and quilt from the stuff sack and set them up; then take them down and stuff them still assembled into the stuff sack. I keep the overquilt in a separate stuff sack.
I purchased the 10deg Revolt about a year ago and wanted to give myself some time to test and try it out. After a dozen trips where the nights were in the low teens I can honestly say this is one of the best purchases I have ever made. This is 1 of 3 quilts I own now and is in my pack every time I leave. I pair this with Warbonnets Blackbird XLC and a Revelation 10Deg top quilt and have never looked back. Most of the time I just use a base layer and a beanie. The cut of this underquilt is great in that it allows it to fold around you but also stay taught underneath you for maximum loft and warmth. The Karo baffles are great with being able to shift down around where you need it but I have in no way seen the down shifting around on its own. The stitching and material are top quality and feel that they will last a lifetime if cared for. Everyone at EE should be proud of what they do and I look forward to many many years with my investment.
I'm so very happy with my underquilt! It's easy to use, it keeps my backside warm, and it packs down into a 5L dry bag. It's impressively lightweight, and comes with a stuff sack as well as a larger sack to properly store your down quilt. I was very happy with the overall package, however I did replace the stuff sack with something a bit smaller/water proof as this is for my lightweight backpacking kit.
While this is a great piece of gear, and I have already sung its praises to my friends, the colors were not what I expected. In particular, the coyote coloring is more of a bronze/gold and is fairly shiny. I'm sure for most this would not be a problem, however all of my gear is in subdued earth tones and it doesn't quite fit.
All together this would easily be five stars if the colors were what I was expecting, though the quilt itself IS worthy of five stars.
I will be ordering a top quilt from this guys as well.
Used this for a two week backpack trip for 45 mi on the SHT in Minnesota, worked great pack's down small and is light, only complaint is in bad weather rain splashes up from underneath and soaks it and the down pokes holes in the very soft fabric otherwise solid product. Just have to be nice with it being so soft.
I got my Revolt early this season and used it all summer, I'd probably go with a 30-40 for summer use, and would probably switch to a short just to save more space. For what it's intended for it is awesome, I've used it on some cold, windy nights and through a couple pretty bad storms and it kept me plenty warm. One particularly stormy night one of my tent stakes came out and my quilts got pretty wet. That was a cold night but the next day they dried out and functioned perfectly. Excellent customer service as well very easy to just call and talk to someone who is knowledgeable.
When I first found Enlightened Equipment online I thought "awesome, a company that makes the quilts I need in the colors I want, all at a good price" then I saw the wait time. 14 weeks was a little if a shock. I sat back and though about it, a small company that proud themselves on quality and customer satisfaction, it's gonna take some time to fulfill orders; so I placed my order. 10 weeks later there is a little box on my door step. Having received a tracking number I thought maybe EE had only sent one but to my surprise both of my underquilts were inside. They pack down so small yet loft up so thick. They are great, so far they have seen a night at the Grand Canyon 70*, a night at Kolab Resevior (Zion) 45*, a night in Bryce Canyon 40*, Two nights as quilts on Lake Powell, and one very cold and damp 45* night on top Mount Rogers. Needless to say am very happy with the build construction and the suspension setup, I only recommend getting little metal s-biners or Mini-carabiners for the attached points.
It will be a while before I get to use this underquilt (August is not underquilt weather). I did make a careful inspection of it and give it top marks for workmanship, materials and packability. It can obviously be used for a light weight ground quilt, too, for nights (or days) you aren't hanging in the air but need another layer of warm. Delivered a month ahead of schedule!
I replaced my Thermarest for my hammock with the Revolt. Dropped 3 pounds off my pack replacing the thermarest and my sleeping bag with the Revelation. I am a warm sleeper and found the underquilt to be enough in warm weather. I look forward to the colder weather and pushing the quilts to their limits. Excellent packability.
I used this under quilt to replace my sleeping pad in my hammock. My first and only experience with it was in the BWCAW when the temps at night might have gotten into the 40's. The under quilt worked great! It kept me warm with no cold spots no matter what position I would lay in. It packed down much tighter than I expected and set up easily.
I used my underquilt this past weekend and it awesome. I have been using a self inflating pad for about a year now and this was so much better than trying to stay on the pad through the night to stay warm. Had no cold spots and quilt was so much lighter in weight than my pad. Was relatively easy to get set on my Warbonnet Blackbird. The quality of construction is flawless. Great customer service.
I have recently upgraded from a 3/4 underquilt from another vendor and I am sure glad I did. The regular length Revolt kept my legs and toes quite warm. The quilt is well made and the materials used help keep the weight in check even with the full length option.
The only small issue I have is with the suspension style. But that is nothing that can't be switched up. I am very pleased.
Ohhh my! I have never been so comfortable. The quality of this product is unmatched. I use a 20 Deg. Revolution TQ with this 0 Deg Revolt UQ. The UQ is very easy to setup and adjust even while in the hammock and then stays in position. I am a very active sleeper and had no issues with cold spots. I have had this setup in temps of 18 deg with a slight breeze. My setup is a Sierra Madre Research Nube hammock shelter. COMFORT IS HAMMOCKING!!!
Purchase a 40 degree Revolt and arrive in the given time frame requested! Thanks to Tyler the quilt arrive and was excited to try it out! The craftsmanship and quality was top notch. Try it on a high 30's to low 40's night and was toasty. Easy to setup and adjustable on a HH asym hammock. Packs very small and very light. Would recommend this product to anyone!
I bought a 30* to go with my 40* top quilt. I used it the first night I received the quilt. Temp was low 30s and I was toasty warm and had no cold spots. In a warm sleeper so even with a 40* top quilt I stayed warm. Love it!!
Received my under quilt in the time frame given. I chose a 3/4 length 20* version and at 5'7" it fits me perfect. At first glance the craftsmanship of this product seems very good. The stitching pattern is very well done and the down stays in place with enough room for maximum loft. A 10D inner and 20D outter fabric it should last with care. This product is extremely lightweight and seems true to the warmth rating. It attaches to my Hennessy Hammock very easily and fits snug. I would definitely recommend this product. Time to get a top quilt as well.
I use this Revolt UQ (30-deg/75") with a Revelation TQ and a Blackbird XLC hammock setup. I never planned to go to 30-deg, but purchased it because I'm female and because I don't sleep if I'm cold. I've had it down to about 45-deg and have been very toasty. I also went with the 75" because I don't backpack with a foam pad like some and use that for under my legs, so this had to go the full length for warmth. And wow, is it warm!
The sole issue is that this quilt and the suspension provided is just a little too short for the XLC. It'd probably be fine with a regular BB, but with the XLC, if I clip the UQ at the ends of the hammock, it hangs too high, and I'm worried I'll rip it because there's too much tension. I emailed back and forth with EE customer service (who are fabulous, btw), and ended up just buying some shock cord to attach to the ends and thereby allow the Revolt to hang at the correct spot. I occasionally have a problem with the quilt slipping out from under the toe box of the XLC (and then my feet get cold), but that might be due to the modified suspension. I still think this is the best warmth/weight for the money and am extremely happy with this purchase.
Got the 30 degree in long. Works great and was easy to get dialed in. Only problem is that its a bit to short for me. I am 6'3" and its to short for me. Should have done more homework before i bought it. Gonna get a longer one from a different vendor and let my son use this one since he is 5" shorter than me. With that said the quilt is light, warm and the craftmanship is top notch
The attention to detail is amazing, every stitch is perfect. I would rate the temperature ratings as accurate. I have a long 800 fill 30 degree revolt and have taken it to 30 degrees with perfect comfort. I foresee many years of use of this gear and can't wait to add a top quilt to my collection.
Slept in my ENO hammock in 38 deg weather. Best sleep I had in my hammock in years. I stayed warm and cozy.
I have used my under quilt on three different trips with tepatures dropping to low 40s upper 30s and it has worked as advertised. It blocked the blowing wind and kept me warm and snug. I went with the 30 degree 65 inch length. I have not been able to push the lower temperature rating yet, but I am confident it will do great. The hardest part was waiting the 4 weeks while EE was making it, but worth the wait.
Okay, so being new to the hammock world I wanted to do it right before I even ventured out into the woods. After doing some digging around the web and finding an abundance of underquilt companies, I settled on Enlightened Equipment to help me out. First of all the plethora of choices on color, length, warmth/fill weight is awesome. I chose a 75 Inch, 20 degree quilt and it makes the hammock so, so comfortable. I combine this with my homemade DIY top-quilt and I am unbelievably comfortable down to about 20 degrees. My order arrived promptly after being shipped and it took almost 6 weeks to the day for me to receive my quilt. The wait was well worth it, however, because this piece of gear is top-notch, no doubt about it. If you have any reservations about the down being duck and not goose, don't, the duck down is awesome stuff and for the money it saves you I would choose it every single time. The only thing that I am a little worried about are the double ended mitten hooks for suspension. I have broken one already and replaced it so I am thinking a small lightweight carabiner or something will serve me better and be more durable. I can tell you what, this certainly won't be my last purchase from EE and I am hoping to add several of their Top-Quilts and underquilts to my collection.
Worth the price. I have a 0 degree rated revolt and used it a few times on the AT in winter. Used it in combo. with my 23 degree sleeping bag in 30-degree weather and I was plenty warm. It stays warm, even when wet and blocks all the wind. Very light and compact; you can feel the heat radiating back within seconds of laying on your hammock. Setup is a breeze and adjusting is easy even while lying down. I can't think of any way it could be better. Looking to test it out in colder temps, and I am very confident it will perform well.
This year I finally made the switch to a hammock for the winter months (Warbonnet XLC) and needed some warmth to go with it. Having already owned the 0 Deg Revelation X I was very familiar with the great product and customer service I would be getting.
When I received the Revolt 10 Deg. I was nothing short of amazed at the craftsmanship that was put into this under quilt. Ever seam and stitch is in place and no clumping or shifts in the down.
Paired with my hammock and top quilt I can honestly say that I have had the best night sleep camping ever....and stayed completely warm in 20 deg weather with nothing more than shorts and a t-shirt. For the weight and pack size, you cannot beat the choice of going with an EE quilt.
