There are not many double quilts on the market and the unique features of this one certainly makes it stand out from the crowd. However there are many benefits here which need to be considered.
At less than the weight of a sleeping bag we have a fully featured 800+ fill quilt, with in built down hood to ensure you trap as much heat as possible.
Firstly, there are 7 connection toggles down each side and although they are designed with work with the Exped Slit Line system, there’s no reason you can’t replace this with shock cord or normal cord and any of the many plastic clips already on the market
This would enable you to release the toggle to give you more movement, or reach for something.
Side sleepers who move around a lot will need to ensure the quilt is kept in place somehow, so some kind of cord system is recommended.
Naturally you also need to consider your sleeping mats and the distance they are apart within your shelter. Which ever cord system you use, will keep the mats close and increase the body heat which will be trapped.
The foot box is well insulated and is about 30 cm deep. There's a draught baffle running along both sides.
The down filled hood has 3 adjusters to vary the tension around the neck and face to ensure you keep the maximum amount of heat in. The two hoods can be independently closed if you use the quild solo.
Due to the location of the hood on the quilt, the excess material naturally falls over your shoulders, thus eliminating the cold spots. The combination of this means you don’t have to consider taking additional shoulder/head gear to keep warm.
However should you wish not to use the hood and just throw the quilt over you, the adjusters allow you to pack it out of place and the bulk is reduced. Naturally pulling the adjusters tight (on the inside and on the outside) will also close the hole completely, reducing colds spots and draughts on your chest.
While taking these photos we found the ‘quilt loft’ was very impressive and the insulation properties were first class as you might expect.
At just over 990gm, with 800+ fill, this is a top quality quilt for a pair of lightweight adventurers.
PS: Beans not included!
The lightweight quilt with integrated down filled hood keeps you warm and cozy on your trek or micro adventure. Perfect when coupled to your Exped Mat Sheet or in a hammock combined with our underquilt for a warm nights sleep. The Hyperquilt can also be attached to a sleeping mat with the Exped Slit Line.
The Hyperquilt comes with a Fold-Drybag stuffsack and a storage bag.
