Price :
Yes the price is high but compared to other handmade ultralight quilts, this is one of the least expensive options out there.

Review Pros :
Excellent handmade quality

Price is very fair considering this is a handmade, high quality price of kit. When compared to other cottage companies and their offerings, the prices are lower than many.

Excellent warmth to weight ratio! – My bag is rated for 40F but I have pushed it to around 30F and I was very comfortable. I run hot though…everyone is different.

Very compressible

Ability to use it is as sleeping bag, blanket and quilt is awesome.
Versatile – because it can be used in so many ways means you can use this product in a wider range of temp ranges.

Customization means that you can have a product made for you that you specifically need to your specs.

Full length zipper – Easy to get into and out of.

Foot box can be opened or closed

Can be cinched to your sleeping pad when using it as a quilt
Draft collars work very well and do a great job of hold heat in at the top and bottom

Lifetime warranty

Review Cons :
Because this is a hybrid bag, it isn’t the best sleeping bag due to the fact that there isn’t a hood and also, it is a bit roomer than a sleeping bag which can allow for more air inside of the bag that your body needs to warm. A mummy bag would fit closer and be a slight bit warmer.

At 40F for me, this isn’t that big of a deal but if you were to go with a lower rated bag it might be.

Warmer than a quilt, not as warm as a sleeping bag. With that being said, this hybrid is warmer than some other hybrid bags that I have as the baffles run vertically and the insulation allows for very little gaps between your body and the materials.

No draft collar for the zipper – you do have a wind block but not a draft collar; again, it really depends on what temp rating that you go with as to how big of a deal this is.

Pricey : No matter how you swing it, this is pricey. For some people this piece of gear is going to make sense. For others, it won’t. That’s how it goes.

Summary :

Throughout the spring, summer and going into the fall, this bag has proven itself to be an excellent sleeping bag. I love the versatility, the low weight and the overall warmth. I have used this inside of tents, under tarps, inside of Bivy in a wide range of conditions and it has excelled everywhere. I have ever used this in a hammock and it simply rocks.

The quality is top notch, it’s American made, can be used in many different ways including in a hammock and I easily can recommend it for those who want a hybrid bag that they can use in a variety of conditions and seasons and for those who have the money.
