I decided to make the switch from a traditional sleeping bag to a quilt to save weight and space in my backpacking bag. I've read great things about this company that makes all of their equipment in the U.S. so I was excited to support a great company making great products. The main issue people have with quilts is that it's colder than a sleeping bag, but after using it on countless trips I have not had that issue. It's saved me over a pound in weight, and it's far more versatile than a sleeping bag as it can be opened like a blanket. I even gave away my beloved sleeping bag.
