Um, this bag is sooooooo warm and cozy! Love it. Stitching is on point and fill is deluxe. The cord system to keep the bag in place seems to work really well for me'I go the extra distance and do the hook and the plastic tab connection on cold nights and it really works. American made, right here in Salida, of the highest quality in every aspect of the product. You're getting what you pay for!
I have so far been blown away by this quilt. Its the third quilt Ive owned, and compared to my previous quilts (EE and UGQ) it blows it out of the water. The shape of the quilt forms to the body with ease coupled with the feel of the perfect fabric makes it the most comfortable quilt Ive used by a significant margin. I was hesitant about the pad strap system at first, but quickly found That I actually prefer it to systems Ive used previously. Its simple, easy to adjust, and excellent at keeping drafts out. Im a relatively cold sleeper and have used the Sawatch so far for just winter camping in Colorado. My last trip temps got down around 8 degrees and with some strategic layering, I was able to stay warm through the entire night. Another aspect of my purchase I unexpectedly appreciated, was not having an incredible list of options to choose from. My last quilt was exceedingly customizable, which in the end left me feeling regret and mulling over choices waaay too much after the fact, hoping I made the right decision for me. It was actually refreshing to just pick the size and down type and be done, knowing that I could return it if I needed- which immediately became clear would not be happening. I know this may sound somewhat trivial, but was in the end tremendously relieving. The reinforced snap and draft collar are top notch, the draft collar is the most comfortable I have used, and the snap system is incredibly important to me. It drives me crazy to try and reattach a snap system in the dark when its cold. All in all, I couldnt be more pleased. This quilt from top to bottom is so well designed, so incredibly comfortable and warm. I couldnt recommend it enough.
Tested this out over the past weekend during winter, in preparation for a longer trip in Colorado. Im located in Southeastern US. As an extremely cold sleeper, I bought this quilt to replace one from another company that was too cold for me. I love it, the overstuffed draft collar is an especially amazing feature. Practice with the attachment straps ahead of time before using, Im very short (4 11) and it took my until the third night to really get it where I wanted/most efficient location. I will say after this learning curve they work well with the shape of the quilt to block out any draft points. Im glad I didnt get the wide version it wasnt necessary for me given its shape. For reference temperatures dipped to around 23 degrees, I used an xtherm pad, wore base layers w/ fleece hoodie as an cold sleeper (female) Comfort is priceless and Im happy with my choice. Thanks katabatic.
Initial review is definitely a strong 5 stars! Im 61180 lbs and debated between sizes. After calling customer service I opted for the large/wide and being a restless side/stomach sleeper, Im glad I got the extra room for wiggling around at night. Zero cold spots and it handled condensation/dripping from my single wall tent pretty well quickly dried and down stayed dry. Customer service was great from the beginning. I was about 3 weeks away from my trip to the Colorado Highlands, emailed Katabatic to see if theyd be able to deliver in time, and most importantly they carried through with their initial delivery date. This quilt is amazing the wrap around style kept me warm down to 25 degrees (didnt test it lower than that yet) and Im confident of its 15 degree rating. I own an Enlightened Equipment quilt (great quilt, but its 20 degree rating is about 5-10 degrees optimistic) and a Hammockgear quilt (awesome narrow cut for a hammock but not best for ground sleeping). I havent had to use the attachment system yet so cant comment on that aspect yet. But overall this quilt definitely does stand out compared to others out there. Its expensive but you get what you pay for.
This is absolutely my favorite piece of gear. Ive taken my Sawatch on thruhikes of the JMT and the CT and it performed amazingly well on each. I use it in combination with the Bristlecone Bivy under my tarp and the two work perfectly together. I was often comfortable with a thin merino wool sleeping layer on cold nights with an xlite and a thin synthetic puffy, even though I sleep quite cold. If Im ever too hot, I just pop the attachment system off of the cords and/or stick a leg out of the foot box and Im fine. My quilt-to-pad attachment hooks dont always hold when I toss and turn at night, but the mitten hook sliders help keep those cold drafts out on especially cold nights. The down (900fp regular goose) in mine is top notch. Its always so quick to re-loft in the evenings and it also bounced back like a champ after I washed it in the off-season. After many miles, you start to get a bit attached to gear that treats you well, and thats certainly the case with my Sawatch. I cant wait to bring it with me on the PCT next year and many more long trails in the future!
