The ultra light Ember quilts are an incredibly versatile sleep system that have so many possible uses. Its balance of size and weight make it an excellent choice to travel with if you hostel and couch surf. It could be used cycle touring and has a place in the ultra light weight walkers pack. It could also be used over your sleeping bag to add an extra layer of warmth.
The Ember quilts can be used in a few different configurations. You can simply sleep under it like a traditional blanket if you don’t like the feeling of being restricted in a sleeping bag, this allows you to stick your arms and legs out to control your temperature.
If the weather is colder and you wish to trap more warmth you can tighten the foot draw-cord to create a mummy shape foot box, and also use the press studs down the side of the quilt to close the bottom half of the quilt.
Tightening the foot draw cord will cleverly create a pocket which can secure the end of the quilt over a sleeping mat. The upper section of the mat can be secured to the quilt by the supplied adjustable strap system that connects with press studs and will ensure that you not only stay securely atop your mat, but that you trap as much warmth around you as possible.
The Ember quilt uses our ultralight 15D shell and lining fabrics, and are filled with 750+ Loft Ultra Dry Down. The EbI uses a sew through box baffle construction, removing internal baffles for a lighter and more compact construction, suitably adequate for its intended temperature range. The EbII uses a combined horizontal/vertical baffled construction. The vertical baffles covering the chest section holds the down in place, preventing down from thinning over the torso.
