Description:

Twice the loft of our Ultra Quilt, our Minim Quilt is wonderfully comfortable yet so simple in design. A fabulous alternative to a mummy shaped sleeping bag.

Ideal for spring and autumn nights, its warmth and protection means you can enjoy the benefits of a quilt over a longer season outdoors.

The outer (top) Ultrashell fabric provides a barrier to condensation. The MX fabric on the underside of each quilt is very soft and comfy against the skin and so light it allows maximum lofting of the rare 950 down. The quilt feels virtually weightless at night. The side loops allow you to fix your own attachments to hold it in place.

The optional down-filled footbag is designed to slip your feet into on cold nights: it's easy to use and unobtrusive when not wanted.

Also available in double size and as a shelled version with a waterproof top layer. 

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. 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 10X 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.

Ultrashell (weight: 40 gsm)

One of the lightest of PHD's coated materials. This ripstop nylon provides complete wind block and good water resistance at minimal weight. Ultrashell gives an excellent upgrade to performance with very little weight penalty.

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.

Testimonial refers to our double Ultra Quilt

"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."
