Do you recognize that, that you love a piece of “gear” so much that you wish everyone else could feel it too? We have that with the quilts from Enlightened Equipment (EE). Years ago, during a search for the best sleeping bag/quilt, we came across this American company and took the gamble to order an Enlightened Equipment Revelation Quilt and have never looked at another quilt since. The EE Revelation has everything you need to sleep comfortably in a wide variety of conditions. The EE Revelation is a quilt, not a sleeping bag, which means it is designed to be used with a sleeping mat as insulation underneath you, between you and the ground. Where, therefore, you are not lying on a piece of insulation that you squeeze in and thus is not useful and only costs weight. So the Revelation also doesn’t have a full-length zipper or a built-in hood, saving weight and space. Just a piece of zipper to make a foot box.

The Enlightened Equipment Revelation 20F / -6C quilt is the all round quilt that you can use well over the 3 seasons. The 20F version is a comfortably warm to about -1C. The temperature rating of the EE quilts are limit temperatures, so for the comfort temperature you have to add about 5 to 6 degrees. We also really don’t know why they still maintain this standard, but it is common with many manufacturers. So a 20F (-6C) is basically a quilt that is well warm up to around freezing and can be used in exceptional cases down to -5C (but with an extra down jacket and warm layers, otherwise you get really cold.

Why are the Enlightened Equipment Revelation Quilts one of the best sleeping bags / quilts for backpackers?

  1. First of all they are ULTRALIGHT, they have an incredibly weight to warmth ratio. The Revelation 20F is comfortable to around freezing temperatures and weighs only ~640 grams in a regular version.
  2. Pack size: these down quilts compress into ridiculously small packages that will easily find a place in your bikepacking bag or backpack. Especially in a good compression bag. (Just beware, hard compression doesn’t always benefit the down.)
  3. Versatile in use: from cold nights to warm summer nights. With the zippable foot box, turn the blanket form into a warm place for your feet. Snap the quilt closed around you and you can stay nice and warm, especially with the top cord snug (this keeps the warmth in). Is it warm then you put the quilt over you like a blanket. If it’s nice at night and you want to enjoy the stars a little longer, wrap it around you like a cape and stay up a little longer to swap cool stories with friends (*gives superman vibes too ;-).
  4. Comfort: The ultralight nylon (mostly 10D) fabric feels feather light, but is also comfortable on the skin. The quilts “puff” immeasurably and feel like a cloud blanket around you (really, come by to feel)
  5. Made with love: designed and finished in the USA. Whether the country makes a difference, I will not say, but what we do know is that these quilts are produced and designed with a lot of attention. By enthusiasts with knowledge and heart for beautiful outdoor gear and you can feel, see and feel that.

We have a good number of Enlightened Equipment Revelation Quilts in stock. If you are looking for another model, please contact us. We will order it for you with the next delivery (average delivery time 6 weeks). Note: If a product is on “Available on back order”, it can take up to 6 weeks before the quilt arrives.

Stuff sack: EE quilts come with a regular stuff sack, which the quilt fits snugly into. But this is not a compression sack that can compress the quilt as small as possible. We ourselves put a small strap around the stuff sack and thus compress the quilt slightly (and roll our sleeping mat around it), watch this sample video. If you are looking for a compression bag for the EE quilt, we find the SeaToSummit UltraSil compression bags very good for that, lightweight and good to get small.

    • Thanks to the neck closure with snaps and drawstring, you can also properly prevent drafts at the top of the quilt.
