I decided to write a review after coming back from hiking when I realized that I slept all night untangled and draft free. When you wake up in the morning and realize you slept like you do at home, it says a lot about the quality of this quilt. The pad attachment seems like a pain at first but it breaks in and is in fact easier to use than the one I have on my EE quilt. The comfort rating is spot on. I won't say conservative. I will just say that all other company are REALLY optimistic with their rating. I am 5'9'' and the 6 foot/regular fits fine even when I am lying on my stomach. I have more room in this quilt than I do in my 59 inches shoulder girth mummy bag. Get one, leave you some time to familiarise with the pad strap attachment system and you will not regret.
This is my 3rd quilt from Katabatic. My last Palisades was blown off a 500 ft cliff by a helicopter during a rescue operation in a major snowstorm in AZ. I recently recovered that one along with other gear after 2 months in snow and rain in a canyon, and with some down wash it seems to be recovering nicely.
It’s so light, I take it everywhere. F, 60* with my feet out OR 18* with a few layers a hood, mummy liner and a few hand warmers got me threw a MT snow moon. I’m impressed this quilt can handle anything I want to throw at it. Excited to see what the heavier versions can do.
If Michelangelo was a quilt maker this would be his “ Pièce du Résistance “ ! On first impression I’m absolutely impressed, the workmanship, quality and design. Haven’t had the chance on using it but I’m glad I got one. The differential cut really makes this more true of a wide width, especially since I tend to toss around at night. The way it compresses and fills out is also a plus! What I’m also gonna really appreciate is how the snap button is reinforced so it feels hefty and secure especially when one has to unsnap it. Truly impressed all around and highly recommended this quilt..!!
I’ve had the Palisade 30 for about 5 years and used it in a variety of set-ups and conditions. Mostly with a NeoAir X-lite, under a tarp, in a bivy and a tent. A few times pushing 25 (I layered up). I’ve never once been cold or uncomfortable, and I still marvel at the versatility and ingenuity of the design. My bag still looks and feels as new, a testament to the materials and the make. I even forgot the pad attachment cords on my last trip, an overnight with a low of 35 or so... and discovered that simply snapping the neck closed effectively kept the sides tucked in. I was so impressed with the Palisade I added 2 Flexes of different temp ratings to complete my sleep system options in recent years, and couldn’t be happier!
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).
