as a data point, i slept in the 20º version of this in low of 38º fairly moist air this weekend (california coastal redwoods area), capilene 1 top and bottom + EE hoodlum, and was not warm enough at all once it dropped below 40º.
Any timeline on when this will return?

I believe 21w without a response = never
I used this for the first time during an overnight backpacking trip in the Smoky Mountains this past weekend. I paired it with just a Thermarest Z Lite Sol sleeping pad, with the campsite situated in a valley next to a creek (Campsite 50, for those that are wondering).
This quilt is awesome. Coming from a traditional/mummy setup, this thing blew them out of the water. I was worried about the closed foot design, especially compared to the EE quilt it's based around, but I think it is actually a good thing. With the provided straps I was able to keep it in place on the pad; the quilt, lay-flat, design I was able to roll around as needed without feeling constricted. Personally, I left the foot vent open and would move my feet in or out depending on need without worry of being too cold, and felt that the open top design (I didn't use the top strap) let me easily pop an arm or two out as needed, too.
Possibly the best piece of camping equipment I've purchased (my WindBurner from MSR is up there). I would buy this again, maybe next time it will be at a slightly lower price since the quilt it is based on came out to be just $1 more...
Does anyone know when this product will be available again? This is made by Enlightened Equipment correct?

This one is made by Massdrop and is similar the the enlightened equipment quilt. The EE Quilt is currently available. When this one is available is anyone`s guess.
I would love to see a 0 F version of this.
Thought I would write a quick review after the first few cold nights I spent with this quilt. Took this on a hunt in interior Alaska, where the weather was mixed with rain, wind, sun, and more rain. Nights ranged from mid 30s to the low 20s. I used this with the Massdrop Klymit Ultralight V on my Helinox cot. The first night, I wrapped the straps around the cot, rather than around the pad hoping to keep myself from sliding on the cot. That did not work so well, wrapping the quilt around the cot made for some dead air spaces that quickly become cold spots. Once I readjusted and wrapped the quilt around the pad and adjusted the neck to be snug, I eliminated the cold spots and was toasty. I slept in my down puffy, with the hood over my head. No issues whatsoever. The whole system, quilt and pad, are small enough that I can stuff both of them in a 10 L dry bag. All in all I am very impressed and quite satisfied with this setup for fall hunts in AK. And for what it's worth, this was the first trip with the cot and I will never leave it behind again.
what was the price on these? need to pick up a 10-20 degree quilt for this fall and debating on options
To insure the quilt stays dry in the pack, during rain, has anyone found a suitable lightweight dry bag that works well? The description mentions a 7 liter stuff sack is included, so I imagine something in the same size would work. I see Outdoor Research offers 5, and 10 liter dry bags. Just wondering what my options may be. Possibly even cuben fiber. Thanks!

Many ultralighters use a trash compactor bag as a waterproof liner for their whole pack. Cheap, light weight, and durable due to being used for trash compacting machines. I actually just use regular plastic garbage bags as liners. I live in the Pacific Northwest with crazy rain and I've never had a drop of water get through. Just twist the top tight and tuck it.

thanks. That's what i've been doing, and will continue for now :)
Finally got to put my 35 degree quilt to a real test last weekend, and couldn't be happier with the results. Used in conjunction with a Borah Gear UL Bivy + tarp and Exped Synmat 7 in temps into the mid-30's (some spotty frost on the ground) at some of the high passes in the Olympic mtns. First, the weight savings (over the REI Sub-Kilo I typically use here) were much appreciated on a pretty brutal trek. I think I used every feature on the quilt - no drafts with foot-box drawcord, mid straps kept quilt on the pad (and me), and the upper snap and drawcord kept me comfortable when the temps dropped. Stayed warm throughout, even when the quilt got slightly damp from one severe rainstorm, and some heavy dew. The quilt dried out relatively quickly when the sun came up. For the record, I sleep with light merino long underwear, a nano puff jacket and merino cap. I'm extremely pleased with the function and value from this quilt!
I received my 35 degree quilt about 10 days ago, and just used it this week on a 2-nighter in Sequoia at 9,000 feet with a low temp around 45 i'm guessing. I sleep warm anyway but was using a Thermarest XTherm pad, with thin base layers, wool socks, and nothing on my head. Worked GREAT. and i didn't bother to use the additional straps to secure to the pad. I was on the fence about quilts, now i wonder if i should have gone with an EE Revelation rated to 20 degrees. Hmmm. chuckling... two quilts in my future? Packs surprisingly small and light, but then I'm used to an older Marmot down Sawtooth mummy bag. I just wish it came with a cotton storage sack.
Just got mine today and pleased with everything except the £45 customs charge. I guess it's still a good deal though.
Mine arrived yesterday (7 June) in Australia. Great service!
Looks great and felt very warm on my test.
Very happy.
I slept under this quilt, in a bivy sack, on top of a cheap closed cell foam pad, over the weekend. I was warm as toast without the cramped feeling of a mummy bag. This was a great purchase.

what was the overnight temp?
jr87mustang
Don't know. It was not at the bag rating of 35, so I can't make a cold temperature promise to you. But, I will be trying it in colder weather. I was warm when I usually get cold feet or cold shoulders and at the same time I was able to stretch out where my mummy bags feel claustrophobic. I worried about cold drafts or rolling out from under the cover while sleeping. Neither of those happened. I woke up more refreshed than usual in camp.
Mine has been stuck in Des Moines for 3 days en route to SF, CA and ETA increased by 6 days from an original estimated delivery of July 1. Did this happen to anyone else?

Glad it got there, I just looked and my post office picked it up today so mine will be here tomorrow for sure! Props to Mass Drop for getting them out on time.
Quilt arrived today, was posted on the 28th June, really fast shipping to Ireland, although the tax were a bit higher then i expected(120 euros) the product is incredible, order the 20F Long, checked every inch of it, the seaming is fantastic so as the fabric.Bigger then I tough it would be, covers me with room to spare( im 6`4) Cant wait to put it to test.

The craftsmanship on mine is very good, but I have a few baffles that seem like they don't have near enough down. Anyone else having this problem?
When is the next drop planned? Thanks @Dannymilks
Got my shipping notice already. Cant wait to get it and try it out.
It says there are 250 spots on the drop, with only 249 having been filled so far. I'm hoping to be the 250th but when I try to join the drop it says everything is sold out. Are you able to assist so I can order one please? Thanks! @DannyMilks
Is this a RE quilt?

Made by EE in Minnesota.
Anyone getting theirs yet?!

This drop started last month, with an expected ship date at the end of June. We have continued the drop to allow more members to join. In the meantime, our special 15d fabric and 800 fill power down has already been shipped to the manufacturer. The quilts are being made as we speak, and will ship out to you by June 30 or earlier. Thanks for asking!
DannyMilks
Any spots available? what was the price? 20 degree reg
So, this Drop seems to be going on forever. Every time I think it is about to end I look and there are bunches more days added to it. When will this end so that you can start mailing them out? Says 8 days left now...

I ended up paying full price at EE to have the correct size, but I wonder if I should have gone through here and not wait 5-7 weeks LOL :)
My fingers are super crossed hoping to get in on this! Would be the perfect addition to my ultra light setup! I feel good things happening!!

Just used 20 degree in the Lye Brook Wilderness, Green Mountains VT. Temps in low 40's kept me toasty warm.

Nice quilt and pad! ~2lbs of comfort and warmth.
Photos are HILARIOUS. Question: are the clips made so that the quilt can be strapped to a pad *correctly*?

Yes, photos show the quilt not set up quite right. The two straps do work as intended, and are the same as any other EE quilt. You can check Hubert's video for the visual aid on how (and why) they clips are there.
Full size pads should go outside the quilt, but for something like the O Zone, it is probably better that it goes inside, like you did. Keeps it in place better. Smart thinking.
Would you say 20° quilt is warm as 20° sleeping bag? I would be very happy to hear some experienced users(I checked on older comments and over the web, and couldn't find a conclusive answer)

I have a quilt and bags. No is the answer your question. That is the lower limit rating of the quilt. Add 10 degrees to the rating and that's the comfort level. Below that comfort level, you can add a baselayer, puffy jacket, gloves, down booties, down hood, etc., to extend the rating down to the lower limit. But then there are other factors. Do you sleep warmer than most or colder than most? What do you eat before going to sleep can make a difference. Are you properly hydrated before going to sleep? That will make a difference in how you sleep. Some people like to have hot water in a nalgene and place it at the foot of the quilt or bag to extend the lower limit rating. Are you sleeping in a 3 season tent or a 4 season tent? My hooded 20 degree bag lower limit is actually 21 degrees and I have slept in it down to it's rating but with a midweight baselayer and a hat even though I had the hood cinched.

There was an EN testing facility at my university. I wasn't familiar with the testing process, but I know that it is very controlled. They took the ratings very seriously. Therefore, if both are rated the same, they should deliver similar results. BUT, if you are not used to using a quilt, you might have to tinker with the straps, cinches, and pad in order to stay comfortable. I personally stay much warmer in my quilt than my old bag. IMO, the EN test is the definitive answer you seek.
I own the 2C/35F version and this is my experience with using this quilt for 5 days in Killarney, Ontario a few weeks ago. I'm really not sure why everyone keeps asking about the footbox. I found that when you tighten the bottom all the way, it keeps the heat in pretty well. In addition, the one night that I slept in windy and cold conditions (5C/40F), I just put my zipped up Helium II jacket over the bottom of the quilt (adding an additional layer around my feet) and my feet did not get cold that night. This way you keep the weight down and you have the flexibility to have your feet stick out the bottom when it's warm out. I think the current design provides the best of both worlds. I'll post a photo of the setup I used later today.

I would love to see a photo!

Quilts do not meet the design standards that traditional bags do, therefore they can NOT be EN tested. How did you (massdrop) manage to bypass what every other manufacturer cannot?
My concern is this is made by EE, which is known to exaggerate their temp ratings. When I've compared the down and baffles to other quilt manufacturers, they are sadly lacking. Obviously then, lacking in warmth. I would take a 20° for summer temps and nothing more. If it could be made wider, then maybe as an over-bag to extend temperature usage. Hope this helps people who are comparing for purchase. I wouldn't skimp on either the expense or quality of your insulating sleep system.
I ordered one, but will this receive warranty support(not I changed my mind return, but manufacturing defect, etc.) like an EE quilt? I love the deal and supporting small business, but don't want to be left hanging if something goes wrong...

The only MD warranty of which I am aware is a 30 day return policy on items which do not carry a manufacturer's warranty, as explained here in the Help section: https://helpdesk.massdrop.com/hc/en-us/articles/115003723748-Do-products-purchased-on-Massdrop-have-a-warranty- According to that info, the 1 year MD warranty that existed prior to January 2017 is no longer available. There is no other warranty info that I can see listed anywhere in this product's info. Although we now know these are made for MD by EE, these are labelled "MASSDROP MADE." EE-labeled products carry a lifetime limited warranty.
Klymit-label products also carry a lifetime warranty and it appears this gray area in warranty language may also apply to the "MASSDROP MADE" Klymit products.
So I'm not seeing that the answer given by @DannyMilks really clears anything up. If the MD warranty is greater than the 30 day return, maybe efforts to spell that out on the product page are needed. It seems Massdrop is on a path to launch a lot more private-label products now.
Can we have a clarification on the warranty coverage of "MASSDROP MADE" items please?
Please pass on to management that I am growing more and more frustrated with the MD attitude to customers. Drops are posted carelessly with inaccurate info, slow to answer questions about important issues, and attempts at appeasement seem to most often be a response to outcry rather than pre-emptive.
A sewn footbox and a lower temp rating would be nice as well.

No, it's just personal taste. The warmer rating is because most of the opportunity for camping where I live is at higher elevations, having a bag that is going to perform fully to 15F is helpful.
Alternatively, a zippered footbox that can be opened to lay flat would also work and might make more people happy.
I think not the only one wishing you'd offer this quilt without the sewn footbox, for better versatilit. It's the only reason I didn't ordered this drop.
Got one, went to review and site was down indeed. I was Just in time but a bummer for others.
Come on guys, the site was down when this expired. Would you extend the drop?

Drop is back up, with the same ship time, and quantity is limited. Thanks for posting and our apologies for the technical glitch.
The Massdrop Quilt is available again in case you couldn't join the first time around. Thank you for posting about the issue.
