I absolutely love my revelation quilt from massdrop. My initial decision to go with a quilt is the freedom of movement and also wanting to lower pack weight. This quilt does that and more. You cant touch and enlightned equiptment quilt for the price on here. I still feel this quilt is made to the standard that of a custom made enlightened equitment quilt off of their own site. This my only fear i had is how would the quilt keep the air from coming up through the bottom cause a sleeping bag has you fully covered. I knew the quilt had straps but wasnt completely confident they would do the job. Wow I was wrong. The moment i cinched the straps up it was a great seal throught the whole quilt. Now as i moved around there were flashes of cold spots but nothing too much to handle. I did however need a much cushier insulated sleeping pad cause it was not so comfy on a thinner klymit pad. All in all im very happy with my purchase and would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

So far, I have only been able to test this item on a few cold camping trips. I used it in Joshua tree for two nights. It got down to 36F (2C) the first night and 43F (6C) the second night. I run a bit warm, but I wore a long sleeve base layer, a long pant base layer, and fleece pants. The pants base layer was more for insulation in the morning when I have to get up rather than when i'm sleeping, and I even took off my socks because i was a little too warm. Because it is a quilt and my head would otherwise be unprotected from the cold, I also had a Goosefeet Gear Down Balaclava (double fill). The first night, I was a little cold but it was from inexperience sleeping with a quilt. I was using the included straps which, because i was sleeping on a two person sleep pad, created some gaps for cold drafts. After removing the straps and clipping the bag up, I slept very well. The quilt does a great job. I also used it on another camping trip to Boulder Basin Campground in Idyllwild, CA. I believe it got down to the mid 30'sF (~2C). I used this in tandem with the aforementioned balaclava and a Klymit Insulated Hammock V and slept very well. The quilt did a fantastic job keeping me warm and, this trip, the pad strap and the other elastic strap preformed as designed. When I received my quilt, I had some concerns; the fill doesn't seem that great and the distribution of feathers was a bit worrisome. After unpacking, shaking it out, and letting it loft, the quilt filled out nicely. I checked the weight and it is slightly heavier than the specs say, but that means I have a little extra down which I don't mind. The quilt comes with sleeping pad straps and a small stuff sack. I had to find another bag for storage, but I already had an extra so that's not a big deal to me. In the winter I store the quilt open and on my bed. (I use it as a regular blanket sometimes because I don't want to buy another blanket). edit: I am 5'6" about 165lbs, and i have the 20F version, regular size, regular width.

I received the enlightened equipment quilt and was disappointed to see that it did not include the (essential) storage sack, only the stuff sack. If I had of bought it from the manufacturer i would have received both. I acknowledge that Massdrop did not state that it was included however I highlight it here for those who are thinking about buying it. If massdrop are are going to leave out essential components for their massdrop made items, which i only assume is to save costs, It's a little cheeky of them to not draw that to potential purchaser's attention (in my opinion). It is a bummer as it will cost me $40 Australian to buy and ship it to me here in Australia.

Love. Love. Love. Down to the teens in a bivy, of course my shoulder/winter bivy bag is an awesome eVent beast. Donned a down beanie and I was toasty; Dead bird puffy for my pillow; no need to wear, was only slightly chilled by daybreak... therms lost to the ground the likely culprit... not this bag. End.

I'm a hot sleeper. So far i was able to test this quilt over a period of 2 weeks in near freezing conditions. On several nights it went down to about -2C. The quilt performed as expected. I was very comfortable while wearing a merino base layer and based on that feeling i would still be fine at lower temps. Quality is great, i haven't noticed any of the issues described by other users here, but then i could've been lucky. i've had issues with massdrop products in the past...

So far I've used this down to about 35 degrees and been comfortable here in the PNW in the last month. This was in a 2 person occupied tent and with a thermal set, puffy jacket, and thick wool socks on top of an REI flash inflatable pad (I actually got hot having the second person in the tent after about an hour). Solo, same clothing and I bring a second lighter down throw with just my pomeranian fur hat named Jango to stay warm. At that point I'd say this does what it advertises and will keep you ALIVE at 20 degrees. I keep it out when not camping and it never quite lofts as high as expected, but not a deal breaker by any means. Overall, I've loved this quilt thus far and think it matches the price point. Would recommend to friends as a starter backpacking quilt for 3 seasons.

The quilt does not loft well at all. It claims to be rated to 20F but I'm not sure I would trust it much below 50F.

Untrue. Lofty as lofty gets. Edit: "I haven't tried it yet," but u leave a 2 star review. Well, that says it all.

Phixt, I've unpacked the quilt and I can see how much it (doesn't) loft. This isn't rocket science -- loft equals warmth. I have over three decades worth of experience with down sleeping bags, so it isn't like I'm guessing. I have also seen how non-Massdrop EE Revelations loft, so it is fairly obvious that the Massdrop version isn't the same grade of down. Given the very slight reduction in price, and the omission of the storage bag, I was expecting to get essentially the same product that I have seen others use on the trail, not an inferior version. Ymmv.

I took this sleeping bag on my very first backpacking trip, the Eagle rock loop in Arkansas. It rained first night, I stayed warm and comfortable. Very lightweight , trying to keep my pack light. It worked very well for me. It was recommended by a friend and I highly recommended as well. love it!

I really love this Quilt. My first quilt, and part of my new effort to go UltraLight. What I really wanted was the Enigma with the footbox, but alas I needed this a month before the Enigma went on sale. I think this will work in more warm situations, and it is fine once I read the article about how to properly close up the end. (https://support.enlightenedequipment.com/hc/en-us/articles/360015974732-Eliminating-drafts-in-your-footbox) Added the Goosefeet Gear Down Balaclava – Massdrop Exclusive (https://www.massdrop.com/buy/68886) with recommendation from multiple Thru-Hikers, and can't wait to put them together once the balaclava arrives. Looking forward to using this on the Bikepacking adventures we have planned.

So I brought this on a car camping trip in Southern Utah recently. The nights ended up getting pretty cold - mid 40s - and I was a bit worried. Honestly, this thing hit it out of the park when I snapped it up into a sleeping bag. I was perfectly warm except when the wind whipped straight down the head of the bag - but I just had to gather it around my shoulders and it was fine. It was much warmer than I thought. I have also used it as a blanket and love that I can make a foot box with the zipper and pull strings but then allow the rest of it to act as a blanket - perfect for warmer weather.

I bought this to fill a gap in my sleeping bag choices for outings. I bought the long wide and I am 5’9” and it fit. I have used it for car camping and it was sufficiently warm. I don’t know if I would use it for winter tent camping though. At least not by itself. I sleep cold And would need more than what this supplies but I didn’t buy it for winter camping.

I am 5'3" but I sleep on my side with an inflatable pool float I use as a body pillow when I camp. I bought the regular wide. I was afraid it would be too long but it is perfect! I love the extra space so I can pull the quilt above my head. The wide is perfect for this sprawling side sleeper. I thought the extra weight if the 800 fill would be an issue but this quilt is so light I definitely still qualify as an ultralight backpacker! I was told that I had to change the way I sleep to be a backpacker. Well, I just can't change that. It's ingrained. So using a neoair, sea to summit pillow on top of a folded thermorest z seat for my pillow, my inflatable smiling pickle pool float as a body pillow (weird I know) and this quilt have completed my bizarre yet functional sleep system!

The sleeping bag does not meet its advertised 20 deg rating. Despite comments validating this observation, I gave the sleeping bag the benefit of the doubt, allowing it plenty of time to loft without any compression. As you can see in the images, the down filling is still woefully inadequate, with large spaces unfilled and visibly flat baffles (these should be rounded if properly filled). It is a dangerous to falsely advertise a key piece of survival gear like this as people can be injured/endangered by hypothermia if used at the suggested 20 deg setting. I've asked to return this.

Hello from the Enlightened Equipment team! Unfortunately, this particular view of the quilt only gives us a small amount of information. In most cases when areas of the quilt contain less down it's an indicator that the down has either migrated or is distributed improperly. In both cases the down will appear to have uneven loft. Luckily there are a few simple steps you can take to troubleshoot the issue without the hassle of an immediate return.
1. Weigh the quilt on an ounce scale. Confirm the weight matches the listed weight on the drop. This will tell you if the quilt has the proper down volume. If the weight is correct to within .5 ounce, the standard variance, then the down has likely migrated. This can be repaired by following the down distribution instructions here: https://support.enlightenedequipment.com/hc/en-us/articles/115000806887-Distributing-Down The entire process only takes a few minutes.
2. If you find the weight to be outside the .5oz variance on the low side, please follow up with us.
We hope you find that the down can be distributed back to a normal loft and you have the opportunity to perform a thorough test in the elements with this quilt.

I had a few quilts before and after loosing Hammock Gear quilt last summer decided to give this one a try. This is not a 20ºF quilt. Maybe 40 (30 at best). I have a trip coming up and it will do for now but considering the price, it's a rip off. Stay away.

20 degrees C? Yes. 20 degrees F? No.
I have been looking at this quilt from EE for about a year and a half and have seen many youtube reviews on it but I had a decent bag already in this temp range. Recently I wanted something that packed smaller but was going back and forth on the 10D vs 20D decision and when the 15D version came up on Massdrop I bought one. It seems well made and is light and does pack small. It is not however, a 20 degree bag. I used it the first time in early September and the temperature at night was 59 degrees. Luckily I brought some extra clothing and had to put on lightweight long underwear, Smartwool hiking socks, a long sleeve t-shirt and a Northface Thermoball fake down jackets to be comfortable. I used it on another trip where it got down to 37 at night and I needed to wear very thick Smartwool expedition socks over a thin pair of Swiftwick socks, Patagonia fleece long underwear, a Patagonia long sleeve base layer shirt, a Patagonia R1 hoody, the Northface Thermoball jacket, some Smartwool thin gloves, a lightweight fleece hat with the Patagonia R1 hood over that and another Carhart wool hat over that and I would not say I was warm. I was putting on every piece of dry clothing i had in my bag. I have an 18 year old Marmot Wasatch 25 degree bag that I have used at 25 degrees with the same clothing and I was able to sleep comfortably.
There are other reviewers below that say the same thing. I would say this is a 50 degree quilt for comfort level if you add on some layers of sleep clothes which I always do. This is my first time with a quilt and I understand the concept of not laying on and compressing insulation but I don't see a way around the drafts. It does not matter how many pounds of down you pile on top, if you have air leaking in around the edges, you let the cold air in from the bottom. The straps hold it to your pad in two discrete places. All other points along the pad/quilt interface are open for drafts and the second you roll to the side you feel it. If you can sleep on your back all night and not move at all, then you can tuck the edges under you and you might be ok. If you move at all and the quilt gets loose, in comes the breeze.
I am 5'6 and about 150 lbs, so not what you would call a large person and the standard length/width size is a little small for me. If I was 5'9, I would want a larger size. With the foot box zipped and cinched and my feet all the way in the bottom, the top of the quilt comes just to my chin so my shoulders barely get covered.
I see others have asked to return this item. I will attempt to as well and see what happens. I don't have a use for it as it stands now.

Disappointed.
I recently purchased a custom EE 20°Accomplice and was thrilled with everything about it, so I started down the path of a 20° Revelation and thought this was a good deal. I understood the 15d fabric and 800 vs 850 fill difference and was ok with that for roughly a $70 savings over going custom.
What I received is more like a 30-35° quilt. Regardless of fill power, the loft of this quilt is about 3/4 inch short of my "real" EE 20° quilt, and a little short of the top half of my 30° Western Mountaineering mummy. The fill was compressed and clumpy, so i gave it 48 hours to loft and tried shifting the down, but I can still see lots of light through it. The down also appears very dark (duck and not goose?). Besides the fill and fabric, construction is great and no different than the EE.
Based on the 20° rating, I immediately opened a customer service request to return it (2days ago). I haven't gotten a response and after further research suspect I never will.
Nutshell, it is not junk but it is not what I thought I was buying, and I'm not risking shoulder season in the mountains with it. If I'm stuck with it I'll use it for summer mountain and fair weather cycling trips. I definitely wish I would have just ordered the custom for $65 more, and will end up doing that now anyway.

Not enough loft or fill, some areas barely have any down, spend the extra money and get the original from EE, very dissatisfied with it, over priced sub par product.

Should have 2 to 2.5 inches of loft but doesn't in areas (down distribution problems). Was cold at temperatures above 30 degrees. Massdrop accomodated my return and had excellent service. It may take them a day or two to respond.

A beautiful, light weight bag that compresses very well. However, a significant design flaw forces me to reluctantly pan this sleeping bag.
One can note by the picture that the feather baffles are singular and long. Nothing prevents the down from spreading too thin, thereby not providing the insulation required to keep one warm at 20 nor even 30 degrees.
I was backpacking in Colorado last week at elevations as high as 9,000 feet. Temperatures reached down to the 20s and 30s and the bag did not do its job well. An inspection of the bag the first morning after it did not perform properly yielded my observation of the fluid downward flow of the insulating down.
Prior to sleeping the second night I redistributed the feathers equally along the baffles. I thought I licked the problem. It didn't work for I woke up several times from the freezing cold, needing to redistribute the down again and again.
I am sorry to report this. This simple problem could have been easily avoided if truncated baffles had been provided.

I agree with your points regarding the migrating down; it can be annoying; mine migrated off my chest down towards the toes... just the center, the down in the sides stayed in place. I haven’t noticed the same problem once weather cooled and I added the bivy into the equation. The bivy and this quilt are my trusted-goto.

I've used the quilt a couple nights to date, both in the upper 40's F. Sleeping without base layers or socks, it was very comfortable at that temperature. Speaking for myself, I think the bag's temperature rating is accurate for a decent sleep if wearing the usual base layer sleeping attire. I was somewhat concerned when ordering because of comments on uneven down fill. If you hold the bag up to the light, it does appear to be unevenly distributed/partially filled, however, IT IS NOT. As with any down bag, shake it a bit when laying it out to loosen those little feathers for maximum loft and give it a few days after it arrives to decompress. I experienced NO cold spots and am glad I trusted the experts at EE and Massdrop and placed my order! Highly recommended!

I bought two Massdrop made quilts for my younger kids and since I already own a Revelation from Enlightened Equipment I had something to measure by. It took about a day for the quilts to loft, and although the fill-power of the downs are different, the amounts filled in the quilts from Massdrop are comparable. The zippers, ties, and drawstrings seem to be the same as well.. the only difference I found to be noticeable was the shell. It does not have the softness or shine my original Revelation has from EE. The quilts are lightweight, warm, and packs down as they should. Would give this 5 stars except I was a little disappointed that the materials used in making the shell is obviously different than the original I received from EE. I don't care that it was made in China, but they should be using the same materials and fill-power if they are going to call it a Revelation.

I ordered my massdrop 20degree revelation quilt rather quickly, and then started to notice comments about the quilt not having enough down. I tried to cancel my order, but couldn't do so. I emailed support and got a response shortly after the item shipped. Obviously I received the quilt and inspected it to decide if it was up to spec. I was really worried when I first checked the bag for loft. It was very flat due to being stored and it looked just like some of the pictures I had seen when held up to a window and you could see through the material (lots of gaps). I made sure the down was evenly distributed and gave the bag a day to loft up. It lofted great and is very warm. I compared it to 2 other 20 degree bags and it is definitely a great quilt. The weight and fill was exactly as it should be according to Enlightened Equipment. I would not hesitate to purchase another one of these from massdrop. Its a decent savings and the quilt is up to standards even though I was a little worried at first.
