The quilt does not loft well at all. It claims to be rated to 20F but I'm not sure I would trust it much below 50F.
Really? I've taken it down to 17F blizzard in a solo tent for two long nights. It 20 is definitely its limit tho, with a long sleeve base layer and wool socks. Add a base layer jacket and gain another 20 degrees.
I haven't tried it yet, but mine just doesn't loft. I've spent enough nights outside to know that loft equals warmth, and the down in this quilt doesn't want to fluff. I've seen non-massdrop Revelations, and the massdrop model must have a lower grade of down, or less of it.
Untrue. Lofty as lofty gets. Edit: "I haven't tried it yet," but u leave a 2 star review. Well, that says it all.
Phixt, I've unpacked the quilt and I can see how much it (doesn't) loft. This isn't rocket science -- loft equals warmth. I have over three decades worth of experience with down sleeping bags, so it isn't like I'm guessing. I have also seen how non-Massdrop EE Revelations loft, so it is fairly obvious that the Massdrop version isn't the same grade of down. Given the very slight reduction in price, and the omission of the storage bag, I was expecting to get essentially the same product that I have seen others use on the trail, not an inferior version. Ymmv.
Good to about 40 F without layering up. Note that every sub freezing review here includes wearing extra layers of clothing, socks, hat, etc. Confirmed this with a week out where night temps hovered around 30. You really had to augment, so the rating is pretty far off. But given that it light, affordable and well made, layering is a fair expectation.
