Custom item. Multi week lead time.
A backcountry quilt for all seasons, the 20° Arc is roomy enough for high mountain layering, yet the unique adjustability of the quilt will easily adapt to the heat of summer.
The loft is 2.5" of baffled construction, generously filled with the highest quality 900FP down.
All 20° Arc Quilts are sewn with a 2" transverse differential cut. This creates a liner slightly smaller than the shell, aiding in maintaining loft.
The hoodless and zipper less Arc concept saves substantial weight and packed bulk. However the roomy cut enables you to curl up inside should need arise.
To achieve this versatility our Arc bags are constructed without zipper closures, but features the now widely accepted open underside fitted with two lengths of ultralight webbing to seal out the drafts. Tiny 3/4" center release buckles adjust the girth for the right fit.

3 different widths are offered: 52" - 55" - 58". Like a shoe, the quilt got to fit right! Big chested guys opt for wide, smaller frames may save some weight and bulk by going narrow. Hammock sleepers prefer narrow quilts. Others, regardless of body type, want the luxury of a big, sprawling cover.
We offer a variety of shell and liner fabrics enabling you to customize the quilt. This is an overview of the choices.
A popular custom option is to substitute the lower third of the shell with Epic, a durable weatherproof membrane. Please contact us for more info.
The choice between regular pure 900 fp down, or the moisture resistant Dry-Down is depending on the user's needs, the climate the quilt is intended for, and other concerns. More on Dry-Down here
Additional down (overfill) is also available in the drop down menu field above right. Why this? The way campers respond to cold varies from person to person. Our 20° rating will feel adequate to most, too warm to some and not warm enough for a few. If you know you sleep cold, or are concerned about environmental influx specific to your use, consider adding down.
