An Outdoor Gear Lab “Best Buy Award” winner for three years running, the Revelation top quilt from Minnesota’s Enlightened Equipment offers more versatility and comfort than the standard sleeping bag. It cuts down on weight for hammock and canoe camping—coming in at 20 ounces for the regular size—and offers ample warmth and freedom of movement for sleepers who need it. The 13.8 oz (size regular) of 800-fill hydrophobic down provides 2.5 inches of loft for a temperature rating of 20º F. On this drop, we’re excited to offer a Massdrop-exclusive charcoal-colored 0.7-ounce 7D micro-ripstop shell combined with the orange 10D nylon liner.
Note: At checkout, you’ll have your choice of sizes between Short/Regular, Regular/Regular, Regular/Wide, and Long/Wide. Sizes are expressed in length and width, respectively, and are available in limited quantities. There are a total of 200 quilts available this drop.
The Revelation’s partial zipper extends from the foot to the back of the knees, allowing the footbox to be quickly opened or closed. Opened, your quilt becomes a flat blanket for two (great for ventilation on warmer nights), or a nice body wrap to wear while performing tasks around camp. On colder nights, zip and cinch the footbox closed, and clip it to your sleeping pad using the included elastic straps. While many down blankets bunch and form inconsistencies in cushioning, the Revelation’s integrated shiftless baffle system keeps the down in place for even warmth distribution. Though the 7D fabric is the shell material,this quilt is effectively reversible. The only difference is the zipper and snaps will appear upside down, but otherwise they are completely functional.
