Pros Reasonably priced, warm, simple, mass availabilityVery inexpensive, versatile, good feature setVery light, packs down small, finely crafted
Cons Buttons, straps, and cinches could use another design revision, some problems with durability and designNot as warm as similar quilts, doesn't seal at the bottom very wellToo short, hood and collar doesn’t seal well, zipper comes undone by itself
Bottom Line This model is a great introduction into the world of ultralight quiltsA functional, versatile quilt well worth the low priceThis is a hooded mummy bag we wanted to love, but compared to the competition, it simply didn’t stack up
