ALPS Mountaineering Pinnacle Quilt

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
