A 20 oz couple's quilt for going light and fast during the milder seasons
This product is no longer in stock
The Nano Blanket technology is here expanded to create a super ultralight (SUL) two person sleeping quilt. Unlike the basic one person Nano Blankets, this Dual quilt has a fully formed and enclosed oval footbox, measuring 20" across.
At 40° comfort temperature (wearing long johns and thermal zip neck top) this quilt is limited to summer use in the mountains. Made for so-called fastpacking and FKT attempts, every design decision of the Dual Nano quilt is focused on low weight, low volume and utility. Split between two people, the Dual Nano (in size 73") represents 10 oz per person. This is light for a full sized sleep system!
Offered in 8 length sizes from ultra short (for potential chest high use combined with a down hoodie) to really long. The width is the standard, and very adequate, 78", while the foot section taper down to an oval, fully enclosed box.
Like all Nunatak quilts these numbers are true; i.e. the quilt does not need to be stretched before measuring.
For the Dual Nano there's only the lightest fabrics available.
Additional down (overfill) is also available. Why this? The way athletes respond to cold and fatigue varies from person to person. The 40° 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.
The Dual Nano comes stock with a SUL specific set of minimalist two person quilt straps, fully removable and adding only 12 grams. A full fledged set of standard quilt straps can also be added to the order. With this option the SUL ones can still be installed.
The length of the pad attachment strap allow you to use two fair sized pads, each of maximum width of 28". A special buckle holds the strap in place in the middle between the two pads.
The top edge of the Dual has an additional retainer strap that allow easy exit and control, individually side to side.

The Dual Nano in 73" length weighs 20 ounces, of which 11.5 ounces is down. The various shell fabric options have only little impact on the weight.
Adding the SUL quilt straps is 12 grams. The full fledged standard strap package is another 40 grams.
Changing the overall quilt length is about an ounce for each of the optional 5" increments offered.
