Camping Sleep Quilts

Anyone got any experience of using sleep quilts while camping.

I'm after one that is warm and packs small.

I find sleeping bags more uncomfortable and restrictive to sleep in, other than my winter Big Agnes but that doesn't pack down small.

I’ve got one that I use for bike travel but it’s not a heavyweight super warm one

That's what I've got...I think, it's a large square sleeping bag that unzips, from decathlon .....Great bit of kit and works for me :D

I have a Thermarest down quilt and sheet to which it clips. The sheet fits on my Exped sleeping pad. Not cheap though.

Apparently COSTCO do a budget one that is Down, for $20
I have looked as far as I can see on the UK websites and cannot find it, also have to mention I'm not a member.

You tube do a good review on it and I would love to try one.
Anyone on here that could help??


Cheers BB

They’re called “Double Black Diamond Packable Down Throw” https://www.costco.com/Double-Black-Dia ... 14979.html
TBH I’ve never seen them in my local Costco, but they do come up on eBay occasionally

I've just bought one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Natureh ... 4c4d6QQyPR . Bit of a gamble as I'm taking it away with me camping in the Balkans next week with only thermal underwear as a back-up!

Not cheap but I like the look of the Exped Hyperquilt.
