A lightweight alternative to a sleeping bag, the Sierra Designs Backcountry Quilt 700 / 30 Degree is open on one side in order to fully utilize your sleeping pad for under-body insulation and padding. While not for everyone, the innovative design saves weight and provides versatility.
With a suggested temperature rating of 30 degrees Fahrenheit, the quilt contains 12.1 ounces of 700 fill Duck DriDown water-resistant insulation. Renowned for their efficiency in retaining heat and compressible properties, the feathers and fibers of down have an incredibly soft, comfortable feel, and despite advances in synthetic materials, continue to provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio of any insulation available. The one inherent weakness of down insulation is that it loses much of its ability to maintain warmth when it gets wet, but DriDown performs differently. Employing a unique, innovative polymer application, DriDown actually creates a hydrophobic finish on each individual plume of down. This treatment results in insulation that stays dry up to 10 times longer and dries 33% faster, should it become wet, than untreated down.
Key features include durable nylon ripstop shell fabrics and a hide-away integrated hood that insulates your head on colder nights, but naturally stays sealed and draft-free when not in use. Full-length, insulated arm and hand pockets supply insulation under your arms and helps you easily create a tight, tucked-in seal around your body, as needed, or open up the quilt on warmer nights.
With a trail weight of just 1 pound, 9 ounces, the unique Sierra Designs Backcountry Quilt 700 / 30 Degree fits individuals up to 6’ 4". A stuff sack and storage sack are included.
