So I’ve been around the camping/hunting world my whole life. Just this year I was induced to a sleeping quilt. This is a game changer for me. I slept outside yesterday in 20 degree weather without an issue and this setup is ultra light. I will never use a sleeping bag again. For those who don’t know about these little miracles get ready your credit cards warmed up. So the basic idea is a sleeping bag without a bottom or floor. Instead you attach your quilt to your sleeping pad and that provides the base. My hammock gear brand quilt has a zipper foot box that is about 18” long and sniches closed. You can also get sewn foot boxes. So in my eyes the advantages to a quilt are: lighter (20oz), less bulk (packs down to the size of a Nalgene bottle), cheaper (under $200), more versatile blanket or bag, and warmer ( pound for pound). I attached some pictures to help with my crappy explanation but seriously check them out. You hammock campers known about these forever probably but us ground folk this is new.
