Cumulus Quilt 250 (long) – Gear Review

Switching from normal sleeping bags to quilts some time ago, was one of my best gear decisions in the recent years.

In my opinion quilts and comforters (quilts which can be completely opened into a kind of blanket) are more comfortable and adaptable than normal sleeping bags. The major advantage of quilts, compared to sleeping bags, is the weight! Open back (using your sleeping pad as isolation) and the missing hood, cut down the weight drastically!
