I contacted the Katabatic crew to see if they could help get me a quilt in time for my son’s first backpacking trip. Without it I wouldn’t have enough bags and would have to buy something else. They put a rush on it and got it here in time. We went to Big Bend. It got below freezing at night. But not in my Katabatic flex 15! It was toasty warm. And so comfortable! With the pad straps, it stayed put even when I turned from my back to my belly. I love it. (Yes, I used it and made my son use my old bag. But he’s a kid, can sleep anywhere, and wouldn’t appreciate the Katabatic quality)
My wife and I purchased these for our thru hike of the PCT this past year. I am 6'2" 225lbs and got the 6'6" Wide and my wife is 5'8" 125lbs and got the 6'0" Regular. We could not be happier with this purchase. There was not one night on trail that we were cold sleeping, in fact, it was perfectly cozy on those cold nights and mornings. We decided to only buy one quilt for the entire thru hike so we were concerned between having enough warmth on the coldest nights while also not overheating as the late summer temps increased. With the ability to unzip the footbox, I think this bag is a great compromise for that. The quilts are still in great condition and the quality is top notch. Will definitely recommend and never buy a sleeping bag/quilt from anywhere else.
I had to go back to this site to say this is the most amazing quilt ever! I was hesitant about buying a quilt over a sleeping bag. I am 5'5" and 125# and in my "50s". I bought the 5'6" which was perfect. The fluffy collar snaps to keep around your neck and the foot cinch can be loosened or tightened & snapped closed. The half zipper at the foot is perfect because you can still roll on your side & bend your legs without your feet coming uncovered. I tried the quilt out at home in 30 degree weather and than in August when I hiked the PCT through Oregon. It kept me comfortable in all temperatures. I did wear warmer "pajamas" in the 30 degree weather. I used the straps around my Kylmit Pad (R rating of 4) in the cold weather, but never used them on my hike. There were a couple nights of about 40 that I had to tuck the quilt around me, but I never got cold. The best thing about the quilt is it made me feel comfortable in the wilderness. It was so cozy & warm and it even blocked out the sound of a couple of horrendous wind storms!
I will never return to a traditional mummy bag. This quilt is very toasty and nonrestrictive, perfect for cold and restless sleepers.
Only been out on one trip with it so far ' 4 days in Holy Cross ' but so far, it's been fantastic. So compact! (get a good silnylon compression sack). So nice and light to carry. And yet so versatile as well. I'm 5'9_, but I got the 6'6_ wide / 900fp HyperDRY because I love to use my quilts wide open so I can freely move about. And the extra coverage is totally worth it IMO. Will the HyperDRY live up to it's name? Time will tell. But I thought it was worth it. You really can't be too careful with down. Those nights in Holy Cross were warm (been a hot, dry summer in Colorado). At bedtime it was probably still 55 degrees out. I worried I might be too warm in a brand new 15 degree rated fully lofted quilt. But with a loose drape of the quilt, ditching my hat, and hanging my feet out the bottom, I found that the quilt actually regulated the temperature quite well. And unlike other bags I've had, the Pertex fabrics of the Katabatic shell breathed nicely & moisture buildup on the fabric was not a problem, nor did I feel clammy. By morning, the temp had maybe dropped to the high 30s. So I haven't gotten a chance to really push the temp rating yet. But with the quilt still wide open, the addition of a light fleece hat on the head, and my feet tucked back under, in the high 30s, I was so warm and cozy and comfortable I never wanted to get up. My highest quality bedding now lives in my tent. As for longevity, that of course remains to be seen. But the detail of the product is superb in every respect. It's also got some great little features that some of the other guys miss. Being able to close the footbox without leaving a drafty hole, for example. Katabatic fixed this by adding an additional snap. And it works great. And all the snaps have also been reinforces with swatches of much thicker fabric to eliminate the possibility of tears due to fabric fatigue in those high stress areas down the road. I love a company to pays careful attention to it's products (and it's customers). I also love that I was able to keep my money in Colorado, buying from a small specialty shop. Well done, Katabatic. So far, it's fantastic.
