Description

Features:

  • Full Length Under Quilt to keep you warm in the cool weather.
  • 850+ GGD Down Fill (New!)
  • 9 baffles lengthwise to keep the down where it should be.
  • Includes a draft collar at the foot end to aid in controlling air movement.
  • includes a stuff sack and a storage bag.
  • Dual Differential cut to prevent compression of the down / Sewn Shut Box Baffle design
    • Gaps are not left at the ends of each chamber like some quilts. The down won’t shift tube to tube. This doesn’t sound important but it is. Some of the competitor’s quilts leave the ends open so down can shift to the wrong baffles. It might be easier and quicker to sew/leave them open but not at this shop!
  • Temperature ratings are for the average sleeper.
    • Also take into account that wind can strip away heat so use a tarp to help preserve your warmth and a UnderQuilt Protector when climate conditions dictate it.  The shells have some resistance to wind and rain splash.
  • approx. dimensions: 44″x77″
  • approx. weight: 20F degree – 25oz , 0F degree – 32oz
  • 30F / 0*C UQ – 12 oz of down (1.5″ baffle / 2.25″ chamber height) ( 10 baffle tubes)
  • 20F / -6*C UQ – 16 oz of down (2″ baffle / 3″ chamber height) (includes draft tube down weight)
  • 0F / -17*C UQ – 20.8oz of down (3″ baffle / 4″ chamber height) (includes draft tube down weight)
    • 25% more down added than what is necessary to fill the given space (included) which helps to maintain loft!
  • You can add more down overstuff as a separate item to the quilts
    • Overstuff helps to maintain loft in the quilt, keeps things poofy and adds a bit more of a temperature buffer. Also handy if your a ‘cold sleeper’

  • Care of your quilt : Treat your quilt with care and you will get many years use out of it. Always air them out after use. If you are on a multi-day hike spread them out on your tent or over the hammock (TQ’s) UQ’s get more air flow hanging under the hammock but still need airing. So if your taking a lunch break and it’s sunny spread them out.
    • Your quilts are made with some of the lightest weight fabrics available so special care is required to prevent any damage to them. If you fail to follow these instructions you can damage your quilts severely.
    • No washing machines
      • Use proper down detergent only (Use less rather than more. It doesn’t take much detergent to do the job)
      • Hand wash in a large basin or tub with warm water. Gently push the air out of the quilt in the water and knead the quilt allowing the water to saturate the down. Then a minimal amount of kneading, pushing the water through the material. Drain the tub and knead out the water. Do no wring or whip the quilt around. This can damage the quilt. Fill the tub with fresh water and repeat to flush the detergent out. Repeat until the water is clear and not cloudy.
      • Do not move the quilt around while saturated with water. It’s too heavy and the internal baffles can be easily damaged this way. You can use towels to aid in the moisture removal.
    • Drying:
      • Never hang a wet/soaked down item on a line. Lay it on a drying rack so it’s supported while heavy. Drying outside in dry air with air movement works great.
      • Once the quilt is fairly dry you can move it to the dryer with tennis balls. Only use Fluff / No Heat setting. Minimal heat can cause hot spots in your dryer and melt the fabric. NO HEAT. The tennis balls will help break up the clumps of down. It may take 3-4 hours to dry a quilt.
    • Once the quilt is dry you will need to shift down around with gentle hand pushes.
    • Do not Dry Clean.
    • Store loose in a large breathable bag. Do not store in the stuff sack.

Prints:

  • Custom OutdoorINK prints are a premium fabric and add a bit more to the cost of the quilt. This applies to the Flecktarn & Fallen Leaves quilt series.

Custom product : approx 2 week turn around time (doesn’t include shipping time)
