Designed to fit snugly across the top of your Eagles Nest Outfitters hammock (sold separately) and offer the warmth of a 3-season sleeping bag for your topside, the Ignitor TopQuilt extends your hammock camping through cool weather.
Designed to fit across the top of your Eagles Nest Outfitters hammock, the ENO Igniter TopQuilt delivers three season warmth for your hammock camping adventures. Let’s take a look at its features.
The first thing to talk about with any sleeping bag or quilt is the fill power and what is insulating the item. So the ENO Igniter is using a 650 fill down insulation. It is a nice, light weight and compressible option. It gives... got a really good baffle design here that is going to allow for really good heat distribution as well as retention. But that down fill is going to be nice, compressible and lightweight while keeping you very, very warm.
It is a traditional down so it is not treated in any way. So if this were to get wet, it is going to get matted down and lose all of its insulating properties. So keep that in mind. You know, don’t take this out without proper shelter if you are expecting some rain.
Some other little features about the Igniter TopQuilt. It has got a nice draft collar here. So for when you are laying in your hammock, it is going to give you some good protection even around the neck area to help keep that warmth in. It has a convertible foot box. So what that means is there is a kind of snap and Velcro attachment here so you can open that up to make it a more rectangular blanket style or you can clip that down, you know, cinch that Velcro and then there is this draw cord which is going to help to keep this as a... more like a sleeping bag style. So it will actually cinch that whole foot area down and create a nice closed in foot box.
The TopQuilt is designed to be a little bit easier than a traditional sleeping bag. So getting in and out of your hammock with a sleeping bag can be pretty difficult and troublesome. With the TopQuilt it is much easier to just slid in, pull that cover over and then make the necessary adjustments.
Now it is designed to work with the Blaze UnderQuilt for true three season performance. But if you just need some extra warmth or comfort in the backcountry, the TopQuilt can definitely be used alone as well.
This item does come with its own stuff sack as well as a cotton storage bag. So you get a nice lightweight stuff sack to use this pack down and stow away when you are going out camping or backpacking. And the cotton storage sack is for storage, as the name suggests. So any insulated item like down or even synthetics are not meant to be stored in a compressed state. So that cotton storage sack is for when you have the item at home and you just want to keep it aside. You know, it is a nice, loose storage, so the materials don’t get compressed over a period of time. So it adds some life to the item.
Some nice additions to the TopQuilt there.
So there you have it. It is the Eagles Nest Outfitters Igniter TopQuilt. It is a great, lightweight, comfortable and compressible option for three season hammock campers and backpackers.
