I recently bought a Sawatch 15F quilt and took it out for my last backpacking trip this season a couple weeks ago. For the first time in years, I was warm to the core all night and never felt chilled. I sleep cold and even though the temps were in the 40's I would have felt the cold with my old sleeping bag. I also got a down hood to go with the quilt - kept me toasty warm. Thanks Katabatic Gear for your amazing products and outstanding customer service. Trey answered so many of my questions pre and post sales. Thank you!
I spent 3 weeks in back country last fall. at 10K feet. Week 1 ranged from 70deg at night to flash snow storm and high wind. Temps in low teens. was in thermals and wool socks on thermarest r6 insulated pad and slept just fine. warm all night. 2nd 2 weeks was November and 3 nights got down to -14. had stove in tent but my watch said temps in tent were about 20deg. comfortable all night. Great to be able to open as quilt or seal up as bag as needed. Temp rating was spot on for me.
Great quilt, I used it on an elk hunt last week . The quilt is super light and very comfortable without feeling packed up as in a sleeping bag. I stayed very warm sleeping at 11,000 feet , won’t be going back to the bag.
I just took my brand new Sawatch 15 quilt on two nights in King's Canyon. It was about 40 degrees at night. I slept on an Xtherm pad with an RV of 6.9, there was no wind, and I was wearing warm base layers, hat, puffy, socks, and booties and I was still a little chilly in the morning. This was manageable, but I imagine that if I was in 30 degrees and, certainly, 15 degrees, I would be freezing. This quilt is supposed to be rated for 15 degree comfort, not limit. I sleep very cold so I imagine this quilt could work for someone else, but it's not enough for me. Disappointing. Side note, the color is very different from that advertised.
I really like my Katabatic Sawatch Quilt. Quilts are just so much more comfortable than sleeping bags. This quilt works reasonably well even in damp conditions i.e. in nights where in the morning the outer shell of the quilt is completely damp and you need to stuff it into the backpack like that (you do have to dry it out of course during the day, but it doesn‘t loose a ton of loft).
The attachment straps work great with an inflatable pad, but not with a foam pad (I use the Z lite sol, which bends when there is pull on the straps, which in turn creates a big gap for drafts).
Also, if you like to spend at least some time of the night in side position with knees tucked in, I would recommend getting the wide version (even if you use an inflatable pad). I have the regular and its a bit too narrow for side sleeping (I like to turn around quite a bit during the night, but end up on the back most of the time).
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 49” 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).
