An ultralight quilt of a mere 8oz?
An ultra runner or adventure racer's dream come true?
This ¾ length chest high Nano Half Quilt is not a stand alone product, but is designed to pair with a hefty down jacket, preferably made with box baffle and over five ounces of down fill. Together they create a uniquely versatile sleep system for the experienced backcountry traveler.
The ease of use designed into this system is paramount while stressed and tired.
Arriving at a recovery stop the jacket goes on immediately while managing chores. The quilt is donned when ready. An optional sitting position allows for refueling and nutrition tasks while still completely covered. A smooth transition to complete rest is easily accomplished.
The stock combo of Arc Half Quilt and capable down jacket is comfortable at 35°F for prolonged rest stops. Still very adaptable into to the mid twenties; however at this point the cold could start to find its way in. At 20°F it’s better to keep the stops brief and bank on calories and left over warmth to recover. In the frigid realm below 20°F you will certainly live on to tell, but consider this setup emergency equipment only.
