Down Sleeping Wrap #2 Long

Montbell Athlete Heather "Anish" Anderson Review and Recommendations

I’ve never been a quilt user. Or a tarp user. Yes, I know that ultralight, thru-hiker types are supposed to eschew the extra ounces of a tent and bag. I don’t (there, I said it!). I’ve never enjoyed sharing my sleeping space with bugs and I’ve always rolled around too much to find sleeping in a quilt feasible. However, the Down Sleeping Wrap from Montbell has changed my mind, at least on the quilt. I found that even an active sleeper like me had plenty of coverage to stay cozy throughout the night. The strap system kept the quilt anchored in place despite my movements. I was pleased to be able to stick feet or arms out easily when I needed to cool off. There were also zero panic moments revolving around waking up suffocating with the hood of the bag over my face, which happens often to me in conventional mummy styles. However, I haven’t yet tested it on very cold nights, so it remains to be seen whether I’d notice drafts when the temperature drops. I do appreciate the smaller compressed size and the lower weight for a quilt designed for 25 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit. This makes it an attractive choice for lightening your base weight without compromising comfort and warmth.
