Gear Review: Down Sleeping Wrap #2 Long

Reviewed in August, 2020

Joan borrowed my Montbell Sleeping Wrap one time…and used it on the solo backpacking trips since then! And even used it one weekend when I tried out a lightweight synthetic quilt that I futzed with too much. If Joan likes it, finds it (crucially!) warm enough without making her too warm, and has no trouble sleeping in it, I know it is a well-designed product.

As you’d expect from the full name of the product, The Montbell Sleeping Wrap #2 Long is well, on the long side, as it can fit someone up to 6’6″ (198 cm) tall. Though I am only 5’6″, I found this longer length awesome for a quilt despite my initial skepticism due to my height. I can wrap it over me for more warmth and still have a space for my face without putting condensation into the quilt. This quilt compares favorably to other quilts in terms of weight that have a similar down fill, length, and width but with a lot of versatility due to the design. Joan is a few inches taller than me at 5’10” but found the extra length a plus for similar reasons.

Upon receiving the wrap I was surprised with how big it was. It is quite large when uncompressed. My next observation is that the shell material "10-denier Ballistic Airlight nylon" is lightweight but feels surprisingly durable. I have other lightweight down items and one common factor is that the shells are very delicate, but that is not seem to be the case with this quilt.

Without sounding too corny, this quilt is SWEEEET! But more specifically, having owned a couple of MontBell jackets, the construction is impeccable, exactly what I was expecting. The lightweight fabrics and 800 fill power down make the quilt feel feathery, so much so that it seems to defy its ability to keep me warm (subject to verification through testing). After leaving the quilt spread out a few hours I tried to measure the loft and came up with approximately 2.75 in (7 cm). Keep in mind that when most bags state loft they are counting both top and bottom layers. I am really curious to see how the 10-denier Ballistic Airlight nylon is in terms of keeping any down from poking through. It is said to be more abrasion resistant and having greater tear strength than similar weight materials.

The MontBell Down Sleeping Wrap #2 Long appears to be a well-thought out addition to backpacking gear. I am so looking forward to testing it right away!

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.
