For that Italy hike I mentioned yesterday, I was thinking a true ultralighter probably would use a real summer quilt. So after browsing the Quilt Comparison Chart on the Jacks ‘R’ Better website I came to the conclusion that I should ask you for a Sierra Stealth quilt. It uses 800 cuin Fillpower Active-dri Down, which has a hydrophobic down treatment that keeps the down drier - great for those evenings and nights where the temperatures drop fast in the mountains and condensation happens. It also has a re-sealable head hole which allows me to use the quilt as a serape - allowing me to leave the down jacket at home and making the quilt really a multi-purpose item. I’m certain that with this fine quilt I’d be the lightest hiker on the trail, Santa, so please bring it to me!
