Backpackers and outdoor enthusiasts know all too well that gear limitations are necessary, ALPS Mountaineering conquers these limitations and does so with its Pinnacle Quilt. Save valuable pack space with a more lightweight and conveniently totable alternative to standard, mummy-style sleeping bags with the Pinnacle Quilt.
ALPS Mountaineering’s Pinnacle Quilt manages to weigh only 1 lb., 8 ozs., and can be compressed to fit within an included 15"x6.5" carry bag, yet is suitable for use in temperatures as low as 35° F. The quilt’s overall length measures 75” and is able to cover a 6’2”-tall person comfortably. Across the top, and wide enough to accommodate various body sizes and sleeping positions, the unit measures 45”.
The quilt’s shell is made from 20-denier 380T nylon, and it employs moisture-repelling down with a fill rating of 600 as interior insulation. The Pinnacle Quilt features an adjustable (and also removable) retention system that allows it to be secured to a sleeping pad, and the otherwise-open design has a 12"x12" footbox to help trap heat around the user’s feet.
ALPS Mountaineering offers its Pinnacle Quilt in a charcoal and red color pattern. Retail price is set for $180. To learn more, please visit alpsmountaineering.com.
