Pros

  • 50 degree temperature rating keeps you very warm
  • Packs down very small
  • Ultralight weight

Cons

  • A little on the pricey side at close to $100
  • Not as wide as a lot of other quilts and if you don't have the right ENO hammock it may not fit right making it hard to lie diagonally

Our Take:

The ENO Eagles Nest Outfitters – Ember 2 Under Quilt preps your summertime hammock for colder weather.

This 4 season quilt is rated at 50 degrees, but you’ll find you can go much lower.

Pair it with a nice hammock sleeping pad and some warmer clothes you’ll stay warm in temps down into the 40’s and 30’s.. maybe even cooler.

The polyester lining is also water resistant and if it does get wet will dry pretty quickly.

At just under 2 pounds the ENO packs down into a small compression sack to take up very limited space in your pack at 15″ x 8″ making it very convenient to carry.

Unfolded dimensions are 7’11” x 3’9″ which will fit inside most single hammocks.

    Pros Double zipper can combine 2 quilts to make a double sleeping bag, 600 fill synthetic insulation keeps the bag warm, Lightweight under 3 pounds, ,
    Cons Can be too wide to work as an effective underquilt, some quilts have problematic seam stitching, , , ,
    Our Take:

    The Outdoor Vitals OV-Roost 40°F UnderQuilt / Sleeping Bag delivers a robust multifunctional sleep system.

    This versatile bag can be used as a hammock underquilt, a sleeping bag, a sleeping pod system, a technical blanket, or a double sleeping bag.

    Its outer shell is made from 300T rip-stop nylon while its inner is 190T polyester making this a tough enough bag to be taken anywhere.

    The outer shell is also coated with unique VitalDry DWR coating to repel water and keep the bag resistant to light water exposure.

    The zippers are extremely robust and don’t tent to catch the material.. also thanks to the double zipper system the OV-Roost can actually be combined with another quilt to create a double sleeping bag that sleeps two for those nights where you want to share your sleeping space.

    While it only weighs 2.75 pounds, Outdoor Vitals also includes a compression sack that compresses the bag down to 8″ x 8″ x 8″ to fit seamlessly in any lightweight backpack.

    This is all possible thanks to the 600 grams of Hollow Filament Synthetic insulation fill that keeps the bag warm and easily packable.

    If you’re using this for hammock camping the OV-Roost includes custom hanging loops, included suspension kit and drawstrings to fit seamlessly onto your hammock without worrying about excessive shifting.

    The bag’s dimensions are 75 x 35 inches which should fit most 6 footers, although when spread open can work for taller folks as well.

    Best Luxury Option

    Weight 2.3 lbs
    Packed Dimensions 14" x 8"
    Assembled Dimensions 84" x 72"
    Insulation Material 650 fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down
    Quilt Style Quilt
    Sack Included Yes
    Temperature Rating 35°
    Current Price $261.04
    Pros Big tough mummy bag alternative, High-quality Nikwax Hydrophobic Down keeps the quilt lightweight and warm, Only 2.3 pounds for a lot of easily packable quilt, ,
    Cons A little on the pricier side, Temperature rated at a lower limit of 35 degrees but not recommended to use under 50 degrees for maximum warmth, , ,
    Our Take:

    The Therm-a-Rest Vela Quilt Sleeping Bag is perfect for any traveler or camper looking to sleep in luxury.

    Therm-a-Rest offers two sizes for this Large and double, and both are big enough to allow anyone, even on the bigger side, to a nice night’s sleep.

    The dimensions are 84L x 72W and can fit someone up to 6 foot 6 so anyone under the size will find plenty of space in this mummy bag alternative.

    Despite the size, the bag only weighs 2 pounds 3 ounces and packs down to 14 x 8 inches, about the size of a large jug.

    The Vela quilt is temperature rated down to a lower limit of 35 degrees for men and a comfort rating of 45 for women, however, you may find this quite chilly under 50 as the space is too big to really trap body heat.

    The insulation and ultralight weight is due to the 650Fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down.

    The outer shell is also very durable thanks to the 20D RipStop Polyester w/ water resistant DWR coating.

    Feel free to use this anywhere from a tent to a shady motel bed (wink, wink).

    The coolest part about Therm-a-Rest products is there ability to mate with each other thanks to the perimeter snap loops and included loop kit.

    This allows you to get more people under the covers, or just simply use as a bigger under quilt.

    Quilt Style Quilt
    Sack Included Yes
    Temperature Rating 35°
    Current Price from $248.50
    Pros Very big and warm quilt, 650-fill Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down keep you nice and warm, Ulltralight at 1.5 pounds, ,
    Cons Not as warm a the 35-degree temperature rating would lead you to believe., , , ,
    Our Take:

    The Therm-a-Rest Corus HD Camping Quilt is a great alternative for anyone who wants to break from the tight confines of a sleeping bag.

    The bag offers a ton of room alone, but also includes perimeter snap loops with an included loop kit to marry two of these bags together to create even more space for you and one more.

    The bag itself keeps very warm for 3 seasons with High loft 650-fill Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down.

    Not only does this help preserve body heat but also helps to pack the quilt down much smaller than a down-filled mummy bag.

    The Corus HD camping quilt also only weighs 1.5 pounds making it very light in your pack.. combined with the super collapsibility this pack will work for many ultralight backpackers.

    This bag is EN temperature rated at a lower limit of 35 degrees and a comfort rating of 45 degrees which is more preferable for most women, although we’d advise not trying to use it in that cold of a situation.

    For colder temps, you definitely want to pair this quilt with a sleeping pad which actually works seamlessly with the quilt.

    There’s an elastic pocket at the bottom that holds the base of your pad, along with long side baffles that easily drape over the sleeping pad to help keep it in place to keep drafts out.

    Insulation Material Polyester fill
    Quilt Style Top Quilt
    Sack Included Yes
    Temperature Rating 40°
    Current Price $99.95
    Pros Ultralight 27 ounces, packs down small, Low temperature 50 degree rating, , ,
    Cons Velcro foot-box can be irritating and can make annoying noises, , , ,
    Our Take:

    The Eagles Nest Hammock Spark TopQuilt is a great lightweight quilt that will make your summer hammock into a year-round hanging tent.

    It’s temperature rated at 50 degrees making it a good 4 season blanket.

    Paired with warm clothes and a hammock pad you should rest fine in temps into the 30’s and 40’s. Possibly even lower.

    The quilt is super lightweight at only 27 ounces and packs down to 11-12” high and 5-6” wide the size of a small jug to keep the room available in your pack.

    The Spark Topquilt actually has no zipper and instead relies on a drawstring and velcro around the lower part and foot box.

    We weren’t crazy about the velcro as it rubs up against your skin and can be annoying in warmer weather when you’re lounging around in shorts.

    At night as you shuffle the velcro might also make some noise.

    The quilt also works great for lounging around a campfire.

    Quilt Style Underquilt

    Temperature Rating 20°
    Current Price $179.97
    Pros Made from tough 20D ripstop ultralight fabric, 800 fill power down for easily compressible insulation, Ultralightweight at 2 pounds., ,
    Cons Although its rated at a lower limit of 20°F it might not keep you warm at that temp.. may be better suited for 40°F., , , ,
    Our Take:

    The Outdoor Vitals Aerie 20°F Down Underquilt is a very warm quilt that can be used down to around 30 degrees.

    Like other Outdoor Vitals underquilts, this bag also is highly versatile offering 5 different ways to be used including as a hammock underquilt, a hammock pod system, a technical blanket, a sleeping bag, or even in combination with another sack to make a double sleeping bag.

    Simply marry one of the zippers from this bag with the zipper thread of another bag and you have a monster sleeping bag fit for you and one more.

    This bag is insulated with 800 fill power down making it not only ultralight at just over 2 pounds, but also easily compressible.

    The outer shell is built from ultralight 20D ripstop fabric and coated with StormLOFT™ DWR for a tough, durable sleeping bag/underquilt that works suspended in the air or on the rough ground.

    The bag unrolls out to 76 inches to be a great fit for people a little over 6 feet tall. The large baffles add into the comfort of the down and the large foot box give your feet plenty of room to move around.

    The Aerie 20 works great with a hammock as it includes hanging loops, included suspension kit and drawstrings to hang from a hammock.

    Perfect for late fall, early winter camping where you don’t want to use a sleeping bag.

    Pros Big, warm design, 15 degree EN Temperature rating, 20D ripstop nylon for durability, Flexible baffles,
    Cons The top snap on the foot box sometimes doesn't stay snapped leading to cold feet, Some of the drawstrings and snaps can get under you while you lay and creates discomfort, , ,
    Our Take:

    Paria Outdoor Products Thermodown 15 Degree Down Sleeping Quilt is a great lightweight way to stay comfortable on those frigid nights.

    Not everyone prefers the confinement of a sleeping bag at, so the Paria quilt is a nice way to stay warm with space to shuffle around.

    The outer shell is made from 20D ripstop nylon fabrics to give you peace of mind from the rough confines of the backcountry.

    The 22 oz. of high loft 700-fill power down contributes to the 15 degree EN temperature lower limit rating, making it perfect for those colder weather camping trips.

    Not to mention the large baffled construction allows you to shift the down around for more versatility and comfort to your preference.

    The 78 inches long by 56 inches width makes this quilt accessible to even bigger campers.

    If nothing else it can work as a big blanket for a few people to sit under around a campfire.

    The quilt is also close to a pound lighter than your average sleeping bag at 2 lb. 3 oz and can compress down to 10 x 7 inches, around the size of a water jug, thanks to the included compression sack.

    This will help save room and weight in your pack.

    This quilt is very versatile and durable and will probably last you at least a few years.

    Sack Included Yes
    Temperature Rating 45°
    Current Price $169.95
    Pros Ultralight bag, Packs down very tight, Perfect for cool to warmer weather, ,
    Cons Rated lower limit at 45 degrees and it wont keep you warm when its that cold, A little overpriced for what you get, , ,
    Our Take:

    The Big Agnes- Kings Canyon UL Quilt is a great sleeping bag alternative to a puffier mummy sleeping bags for those milder to warmer nights.

    Although the temperature rating is around a lower limit of 45 degrees this bag isn’t really meant for any conditions that chilly.

    However, for the warmer nights, this will work much better than a down or synthetic filled puffy sleeping bag as it breathes much easier and has a back pocket and straps for a sleeping pad to stay secured.

    Keep in mind that because this isn’t a sleeping bag it won’t zip in the back and you absolutely must have some barrier between you and the cold ground so be sure to include a sleeping pad anytime you bring the Big Agnes Kings Canyon quilt out.

    You also want this over a mummy bag as it is lighter and compresses down much smaller.

    Despite being thinner the exterior is built very well and can stand the wear and tear that comes from the trail

    Quilt Style Camping Blanket
    Sack Included Yes
    Temperature Rating 40°
    Current Price from $59.99
    Pros Very warm, Water resistant and odor resistant, Included stuff sack, ,
    Cons Not machine washable., Doesn't compress down enough for lightweight backpacking, , ,
    Our Take:

    The Montem Sneaky Snuggler Camping Blanket is a reliable backpacking quilt that will work great for any backpacker and camper who need to stay warm on even cooler nights outdoors.

    The DWR treated 20D ripstop nylon makes the outer shell tough enough to handle the physical demands of the backcountry including normal wear and tear along with a coating of water resistance.

    It’s insulated with 3D Hollow Fiber Synthetic Insulation which allows it to easily shrink down to 9” by 17” into the included stuff sack.

    The filling also keeps it warm with a temperature rating of 4o degree that will keep you very warm.

    With some warmer clothes on you can probably feel toasty in even cooler weather.

    All spread out the Sneaky Snuggler measures 54″ x 80″ making it a great fit for one person, 2 can be a tighter squeeze but will still work.

    Use it in a tent, lying on your hammock, sitting around the campfire or even at home on the couch watching Netflix.

    Also comes with a great compressible stuff sack that compresses the blanket down to reasonable size and can also be used to hold other items.

    Pros Extra tough and versatile, Packs down tight with the included compression sack, Big enough to fit bigger campers, Clips easily into hammocks,
    Cons Even though its rated at 30°F we can't guarantee this bag will keep you warm in anything below 45°F., , , ,
    Our Take:

    The Outdoor Vitals Aerie 30°F Down Underquilt / Sleeping Bag delivers a lot of versatility for many different uses in a lightweight package.

    It can be used in a variety of ways including as an underquilt, a hammock sleeping pod system, a sleeping bag, a technical blanket, or a double sleeping bag.

    The Aerie is EN temperature rated down to a lower limit of 30°F due to the premium 800+ fill power down making it great as a late fall early winter bag.

    Also because its a quilt it can be opened up and also used in warmer months without feeling overheated due to the constriction of a sleeping bag.

    At 83 x 29 inches, anyone up to 6’6 should be able to comfortably fit in this bag.

    The outer shell is built with 20D Rip-stop Nylon fabric and coated with unique VitalDry DWR making it super durable whether hanging in your hammock or taking the abuse of the ground while being able to repel light water and keeping you dry.

    Outdoor Vitals has includes a compression sack to help fold this bag down to 10 x 7 x 7 inches, while only weighing 2 lb 2 oz + 3 oz for compression bag.

    If you do choose to use it with a hammock the Aerie 30 underquilt includes custom hanging loops, included suspension kit and drawstrings (on both ends) to seamlessly attach any inconsistencies.

    Pros Temperature rated at 45 degrees, Ultralight at a pound for the smaller and 2 pounds for the bigger quilts, more spacious alternative to a mummy bag, Includes a stuff sack, Room to secure a sleeping pad
    Cons Will not work in temps cooler than 50 degrees, , , ,
    Our Take:

    The Therm-A-Rest Apogee Quilt is a spacious sleeping bag alternative that will keep you warm while adding a ton of comfort.

    The Therm-A-Rest quilt comes in 2 different sizes, Regular and Large.

    Both are ultralight at just over 1 pound for the regular and just over 2 for the large.

    This lightweight build can be attributed to the Hollow microfiber polyester eraLoft™ that insulates the interior.

    The microfiber fill not only keeps it warm and lightweight but also extremely packable.

    This fill is paired with the ThermaCapture seams that work with your body’s natural body heat to keep you nice and toasty. There’s also a shaped, elastic foot box and full-length draft tubes to help this quilt rival the toastiness of a mummy bag by also keeping your lower half as warm as the top.

    The temperature rating for this goes down to a lower limit of 35 degrees and a comfort limit of 45 degrees and will keep you very warm, although you may not find so much warmth in these exact temps.

    This quilt is perfect for the cooler summer, fall and early winter nights, but might leave you a bit chilly in anything below 50 degrees.

    There’s also an included loop kit with straps to help keep any air pad or small mattress in place to help increase warmth and comfort while you lie inside the quilt.
