VaprLoft Quilt - VB hooded quilt on 06/16/2012 07:00:05 MDT Print View

I originally made this quilt few months back. The grey Vapor Barrier inner is SevenDS and black outer is SevenD. I used 4oz Apex. I completely modified it last month with a hood which uses a 20d black fabric and changed the insulation to 5oz Apex. So far I have use it outdoors for 5 nights upto 12500 ft. We had some snowfall during one night but quilt worked great. I used a 100 microfleece baselayer. I plan to do further testing on a 2 week expedition starting soon (upto 15000ft.)

The quilts features a velcro drawcord footbox, VB inner and a curved hood on the top.

Looks good Huzefa!

Can you share a bit of info on how the hood fits? Pics of you w/the hood on? And also, does it cinch down?

Thanks,
Todd

The hood is big enough to cover the head. No draw cord to cinch - I dont think its needed provided its big enough. I will try to post better pics soon.

Looks good!

When you post pictures, put a carriage return/line feed between them and it's easier to read : )

Perhaps I figured it out - is it simply an extra length of fabric/insulation to extend over your head, rather than a traditional hood?

If that's it, no additional pics necessary. If I'm off base here, then bring 'em on!

Thanks.

Does the quilt close up on the top instead of bottom?

It is closed at the bottom.
