enLIGHTened equipment IN STOCK on 06/28/2013 08:30:31 MDT Print View

We've been building a bunch of Quilts this last month to build an inventory. I think a built to your needs quilt is still the best but not everyone plans far enough ahead and now you can get quilts right away. We store them un-stuffed so we need a day or two to stuff them then we can get them right out.

Also we made another small batch of our summer blanket and are running it at a hard discount, only 4 left.

Haven't posted here in awhile so thought i'd keep the community updated to what we have in hand

What temperature range are you thinking of? Comfortable to 30-ish wit the usual summer clothes (long johns and a shak top)?

I'm guessing its more like 50 degrees. I have the 40 degree prodigy and it has 4 oz Apex. The summer quilt has 3.3 oz high loft. I doubt it's as warm as Apex.

It's a 45*. Did I forget to add that again?

Tim, does the seconds nylon have any sort of DWR on it? Wondering about using this for a cover quilt over my down bag for winter camping.

Yes but it's not great, a real mid level performer.

DWR- on 07/03/2013 06:12:26 MDT Print View

I actually have on of the first production runs. It is a nice summer quilt and Tim's description is 100% accurate. He does not over sell it-
It is a basic quilt but what else do you really need for 45+ temps?
I have used mine to about 53* and it was great.

The DWR IS BASIC water will bead but you definitely want a plan for handling any real moisture.

It packs a bit big but I use it to give shape to my summer pack. Good $100 investment.

Nice product just don't have expectations beyond a flat quilt with one end gathered to a foot box !

Kevin,

How do you like the footbox? I'm considering a full lineup like this aimed at hammock users. Should I add the top drawcord and snap back in if I'd do?

I think it's great like it is. It's fast n light which is nice.
I like for a lite quilt to just lay over me in summer.
It's way easier to control your temp and airflow.

Thanks for a great product!

I'm thinking all my temps in both down and synthetic and all fabric options. But no drawcord is easier :)

Tim, I don't have one of your quilts (Yet!), but I made my own without any snaps or draw cord for the neck area. I prefer to have the quilt a little wider and tuck where needed. I find it more comfortable and closer to wrapping yourself with the covers at home.

Question, Do you make custom length RevotX underquilts?

which one is the "summer quilt" on 07/03/2013 11:00:50 MDT Print View

Re: Re: Re: DWR- on 07/03/2013 11:20:55 MDT Print View

Eric,

I think youre right, making it a little longer allows a nice tuck and also keeps costs lower and separates the product lines

I'm not setup to do custom lengths on the UQ but it shouldn't be too tough. Shoot me an email and we can figure it out

The "simple summer blanket" is a short run I made this summer to use up some old 3.3oz insulation. Its as basic as it gets, but is cheap:). There is a link to it on my homepage, until the last one sells
