*Listed weights may vary up to 10% due to material properties and production process.

Our rates are something between lower limit and comfort. Comfort temperature is the temperature at which a standard female can sleep in a relaxed position. Lower limit is the temperature at which a standard male can sleep for eight hours in a fetal position. These rates should be OK for most people, if you wear thermal underwear. If you tend to be cold sleeper, Apex 267 or 233 should  be fine around 0°C.

Generally speaking, our regular size fits most users. Slim is for users who are not restless sleepers, and want the lightest option possible. Wide has the same upper width as regular, but comes with a more comfortable and roomy footbox.

Generally, the shorter 50cm zipper is suited for more active – restless sleepers. 70cm zipper is good for those who prefer longer footbox. Full length zipper quilt can be also made as a custom item.

Those attachments are there for various reasons. You can connect them together and form enclosed »sleeping bag« or you can make yourself an improvised “camp jacket”. Furthermore, they can be used to stack two quilts to extend the temperature limit.

Yes, no need to roll it. Climashield Apex synthetic insulation is known for its durability and keeps its loft for a long time.

Quilts don't provide head insulation. Most users use either a beanie or an insulated jacket with a hood. An insulated balaclava is also a popular option, and we plan to introduce those in the future.
