So you're bicycle touring around Tasmania in late autumn? Maybe you're hiking The Overland Track? And you want to lighten up your gear. A lightweight down quilt is the way to go, and at just 560g (regular size) and packing down to 3 litres, the Sea to Summit Ember EB2 won't take up much space in your pannier or backpack.
It's versitile. If the temperature drops and you need to trap more warmth, the Ember has a draw-cord foot box and press studs to cinch the bottom half closer to your body. Four adjustament straps allow you to afix the quilt to your sleeping mat, so you don't lose it in the middle of the night. On performance. The EB2 down quilt has an ultra-lightweight 15D shell which contains 750+ loft premium duck down. It's cleverly baffled around the chest section to keep your vitals nice and warm. This baby'll keep you comfortable in termperatures down to -4°C when used with a nice, warm sleeping mat like the Sea to Summit Comfort Light Insulated.
In recent times the down quilt vs sleeping bag debate has become lively. The conclusion? Many ultralight hikers and trekkers, bicycle tourers, and adventure racers are turning to the lightweight and uber-packable qualities of quilts like the Sea to Summit Ember. Unzip!
