7 Best Sleeping Bags & Quilts of 2018

Enlightened Equipment Revelation Quilt 10°

EN Comfort Rating: N/A

Weight: 1lb 6oz

Chosen For: Ultralight Versatility, Value, & Warm Weather Comfort

The Enlightened Equipment Revelationquilt has a combination of weight, versatility, and affordability that make it an exceptional choice for ultralight backpacking. The Revelation can be left open like a blanket on warm nights or cinched up tight when the temperature drops. If you dislike feeling constricted in tight-fitting mummy bags, you’ll love the freedom of the Revelation. All quilts tend to be a bit draftier than mummy bags (read “quilts vs mummy bags” section above), so we usually don’t pack them if temps are going to be around freezing or below. Enlightened Equipment quilts are made to order (some lead time required) and come in a variety of temps, lengths, widths, and colors. For 3-season use, we prefer the 10°F and 20°F models. We find the 10°F model keeps us warm to right around freezing (32°F) or just below, so make sure to factor that in when choosing a temp rating. We also bump up one size in length and width for full coverage on chilly nights.
