The Enlightened Equipment Revelation 20 is our returning budget champion, winning our Best Buy Award in ultralight bags for the second straight year. It isn't the outright cheapest sleeping bag reviewed, but it is much more customizable and versatile than its price range suggests. The Sierra Designs Backcountry Quilt 700 costs less, but its down isn't as high-quality and it lacks the Revelation's versatility. While we don't think we would be comfortable down to 20F as the rating of our test model suggested, we still found this to be the warmest quilt we tested, and have the simplest pad attachment or buckle-it-closed system. For those who like the design of a quilt and want to stretch their money the furthest, this is a great option.
Enlightened Equipment made some minor updates to the Revelation sleeping bag. We highlight the updates below the table.
