The 62" version we tested in our updated review weighs in at 13.9 ounces! The longer 68" version we previously tested also weighed in at less than 16 ounces. We recommend the Top Pick Award winner Vireo to alpinists and cold weather adventurers who climb or hike with a very warm winter parka.
For the majority of ultralight backpackers and thru-hikers, we recommend a quilt for warmth and versatility. The closed footbox quilt Katabatic Gear Palisade 30, our Editors' Choice winner for ultralight sleeping bags, is simply the warmest and most comfortable option we tested. If you are more budget conscious, the Enlightened Equipment Revelation 20 fully-opening quilt is one of our top scoring models overall, and has a relatively modest price tag.
The Vireo bag has seen an update this year! Keep reading for more information.
