Description

A superb Ultralight Single Quilt, made from PHD's superb 950 fill power down and one of our lightest fabrics. Featherweight on the bed at home, a wonderful lightweight way to add to your comfort in camp.

Outdoors

The single quilt is a versatile camp companion. Use it in place of a lightweight bag on summer nights or wrap it around you if you're sitting out. In colder weather it works as an extra layer to put over your sleeping bag at night. It's just about wide enough to cover two bags, even better if you turn the 210cm length into the width. However you want to use it, the side loops allow you to fix your own attachments to hold it in place.

The Footbag version does all that the normal quilt will do, but it has a footbag added specifically for outdoor use. This down-filled footbag is designed to slip your feet into on cold nights: it's easy to use and unobtrusive when not wanted (you can turn the quilt over to be sure).

The double quilt offers the same range of possibilities to two people. The Footbag option is not available for the double.

At Home

This quilt is a new way to add extra warmth on your bed virtually without adding any weight. MX is 75% lighter than the cambric used to make ordinary quilts and 950 down is more than 50% loftier than the down in most 'pure down' quilts. So whether you want a quick boost for a chilly night or you just like the airy feeling of minimum weight over you at night, this Ultra Quilt offers a very different alternative to conventional quilts.

Note: This quilt has been designed to be as warm as possible for minimum weight. As it is open, it is not possible to give it a temperature rating, but like our ultralight sleeping bags, when used on its own outdoors it is a summer item. If combined with a sleeping bag outdoors, or with other bedding at home, it can add significant extra warmth. On the bed at home the quilt's MX cover slides more easily than normal bedding fabrics. If you are not using a lightweight top sheet or cover, you may want to make use of the tie loops to ensure that the quilt stays in place.

Technical

Superlight MX fabric (weight: 32 gsm)

A mini-ripstop nylon with excellent tear strength, MX is the pick of the superfine 15 denier downproof materials. We have tested lighter fabrics, but most have had significant drawbacks, while our confidence in MX is based on several years of extensive use in both our ultralight and our high mountain gear.

950 Fillpower Down

A newcomer to our range. European goose of rare quality. A high value alternative at the top levels of performance. More on our down insulation.

Note: these comments relate to the double version of our Ultra quilt

"It's weightless, you just don't feel it's there and the insulation is incredible. The silky fabric doesn't bind to other fabrics either, so although we just had it thrown over the top of our duvet without any ties, the Ultra tended to stay in place, our movement not affecting it much. It is a proper bit of outdoor kit and after 100 nights I would have no hesitation in packing this. It's light, adaptable, made of top class materials and the bottom line is that it's really bloody warm."
Peter Macfarlane (a.k.a. Petesy).

"About 12 years ago, with a stroke of luck that escapes most climbers, I found myself married to a girl whose heart was in the mountains like mine. But the marital bed was not all roses, the marital bed was sleeping bags. Not good. But simply solved. You guys at PHD came to the rescue when we ordered a pair of 2m x 2m duvets made using the very latest technology, the lightest sleeping bag fabric filled with your very best quality goose down. Within two years we had spent close to 90 days in our tent, climbing in Ethiopia, surfing in Cornwall etc We have slept in the open, under one and on the other and despite our warmth, shaken the ice from the top duvet as we awoke. Although we are extremely well-equipped for the outdoors, of all the gear, it is these two duvets that have been coveted the most. Thank you for the quality you have added to our outdoor adventures."
