Designed to fit snugly across the top of your Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO) hammock (sold separately) and offer the warmth of a 3-season sleeping bag for your topside, the ENO Vesta TopQuilt extends your hammock camping season.
Designed to fit snugly across the top of you and across the top of your hammock, the Eagles Nest Outfitters Vesta TopQuilt will help extend your hammock camping into three seasons.
This is basically a blanket that has some sleeping bag types of characteristics. But it is built specifically to put in your hammock. It is very comfortable. It is insulated with synthetic material. And the thing I love about synthetics is that in damp conditions it is going to hold its thermal efficiency longer than down. And it is going to dry out faster. So you have got some material on the outside. It is a nylon rip stop with DWR. So you have got a water repellent finish there on the outside that is going to shed some water, some light rain, that kind of thing. And then the liner on the inside, that material is a little bit softer. It is more of a nylon taffeta material and so you have got some really great lightweight materials here. Since you have that synthetic insulation it is Primaloft, so it is very high quality. It packs down to be pretty small. This is going to work in conditions around 35 to 45 degrees and just going to provide a lot more comfort and a lot more warmth when you are hanging out in your hammock.
This does need to be paired with an UnderQuilt from Eagles Nest Outfitters. It is not included. But in order to get down to that temperature rating and to keep yourself toasty warm, this would go on top of you and then you do need an UnderQuilt to go underneath the hammock. But in warmer temperatures if you just need something a little extra to take the little bit of cold off, this would certainly work for that.
The top of this is straight across just like a blanket and it makes it really comfortable. You can tuck it around you. You can fold it on the outside of the hammock. If you really need to batten everything down and tuck it around you, it fits really well around you here. And there is even a little collar on the inside. So that makes it comfortable if you have got it up around your neck.
Moving down you have got nice baffles here. It is a synthetic fill so you don’t need a whole lot of baffles, but it does taper down into the bottom and there is a very interesting cut on this. So if you want to, you can tuck it around. There is a strip of Velcro on either side and there is actually a snap on the top of the Velcro and on the bottom of the Velcro. So you can Velcro it shut and kind of tuck it around your feet and around your legs like ... almost like a mummy style sleeping bag. You can see here I have got it tucked around my feet. If I wanted to I could pull my feet in and cinch down the bottom. So that makes it like a mummy style sleeping bag. You get a nice foot box there. But I could also open that up. You see, you have got Velcro all along there and then a snap on either side. So the bottom of this if you want to, you can cinch it down around the bottom. And that provides a nice little foot box, but you can extend that out like a blanket. You get a leg out, you can get a foot out. So that provides a lot of different options, a lot of different comfortable ways to use this blanket.
Eagles Nest Outfitters includes a stuff sack and a bigger storage sack. So when you are storing it at home, put it in an uncompressed state, but it does come with a smaller stuff sack and it packs down to be pretty small. The length here is about 74 inches long. So it is definitely going to work with any Eagles Nest Outfitters hammock. And even if you are in a double hammock and each person has the blanket, you can share it, you can tuck it around you and there is so many different comfortable options with this.
I can see this blanket being great just on back yard outings, camping, but it is packable enough and it has got those high quality features that it is a backpacking option. So you can definitely take it into the backcountry to keep you nice and toasty warm while you are hammock camping.
It is the Eagles Nest Outfitters Vesta TopQuilt.
