This was my first introduction to the quilt world, and I’m thoroughly impressed. Took it out this weekend, and it reached -2c, and I was comfortable. Defo need to strap it down to stop draft. Overall, one of my favourite pieces of gear now!
I own an Alsek from 2016. The attachment system works very well on that quilt. The system for the flex does not include the extra hooks to hold the edge of the quilt down. The Flex detaches multiple times a night and does not protect against drafts as well as the Alsek. Had I known this I would have requested the extra mitten hooks to be added as a customization, if possible. They should be standard, in my opinion. I would send it back for modification but I’m on the PCT right now and need it. Otherwise, it is a very nice quilt.
Took a bit of a gamble buying a hiking quilt having never tried one. Glad to say it paid off. I bought a long/wide and I love this quilt, I have never slept well in a sleeping bag and usually end up fully unzipping them anyway. The footbox design is awesome. I like being able to open it up when I don't need it which is a lot of the time as mostly I just fold the bottom back under my feet and that keeps my feet warm and toasty. I also use this as a straight quilt when sleeping in my rooftop tent. I also really like the feel of the inner material, it feels a lot like cotton and doesn't seem to stick to me like a lot of my sleeping bags do.
tested out my new 900fp hyperdry flex 22 6'6" wide this weekend. temps down to mid 20s. plenty warm in a pair of boxers, and the pad attachment system is an ingenious way to keep the heat in, block the drafts, and provide a ton of room. don't think i'll ever use a traditional sleeping bag again during the spring/summer/fall. well done, katabatic.
I purchased the Flex 22°F Quilt - Wide 6' / 900fp HyperDRY Goose Down quilt. I have had it for almost a year, and I think it's time to give this solid piece of equipment my review. Out of the box I could tell it was high quality and going to last. The loft was as expected and as promised. The warmth is perfect for me. Been down to 26 degrees Fahrenheit by itself comfortably as well as down to 19 degrees with silk liner and a fleece liner. A special note, if you get the wide, do understand, the extra space is nice for wide shoulders but will take some extra time to warm up. With that said, it's very roomy and spacious and is overall very comfortable. I love that it opens up flat and can be used in warmer temps, making this my go-to quilt for year around. The down filled collar and the baffles in the foot box really keep out drafts. My only critique is the finicky pad attachment system, I'm not a fan. It doesn't seem to hold very well and with cold hands it's very hard to attach (reason for the 4/5 rating). Other than that, I would not backpack without it. Katabatic Gear has great customer service. They answered all of my questions quickly as well as some extra questions about the right sleeping pad to purchase for this quilts attachment system. My fiancée and I are both lifelong fans! Keep up the great work!
Length: This refers to the maximum height of the user. For example, if you are 6’ tall, you should comfortably fit in our 6’ length, and the collar will loosely come up to your chin. If you are a stomach sleeper, you’ll want to add a few inches to your height since your toes will be pointed away from you, essentially making you “taller.”
Width: If your shoulder circumference measurement (around the widest part of your chest + arms) is 51” or greater, you’ll need to select a wide size. You can opt for a wide even if you don’t meet that measurement. Just keep in mind that if there is too much dead air space inside the quilt, you might sleep a little colder.
Fill Power (FP): Down with a higher FP number provides more loft, so we need less of it to achieve a certain temperature rating. Therefore, the finished weight of a quilt filled with a 900 FP option will be slightly lighter than one filled with the 850 FP down, but they would be equally as warm.
Duck vs Goose: Duck down is more readily available than goose, so it is less expensive. There are no performance differences, and one will not make your quilt warmer than the other. Note that our duck down is only available as an 850 FP, so the quilt would be slightly heavier (see above).
HyperDry: This treatment helps the down maintain its loft better in damp conditions, and helps it dry out faster if it does get wet. The HyperDry treatment is most useful for folks who will encounter a lot of humidity or rain, or will sleep numerous successive nights with lows in the teens (°F).
