Sizing and other info
You can check the production times on this page. Lead times are updated regularly.
If you have problems selecting the correct size please do not hesitate to contact us, we will be glad to help!
All sizes in centimeters. User height is the maximum height for the given quilt size. For example, if you are 176 cm tall we already recommend size L.
There are a few important factors when selecting the quilt length. You need to get a slightly longer quilt if:
- You are often sleeping on your back or stomach
- To add aditional warmth your existing sleeping bag/quilt as an overquilt
- You want to pull the quilt over your head.
Measurements are from edge to edge, pulled tight, those are basically the fabric length from seam to seam but because of the insulation loft the actual quilt when in relaxed position is shorter/narrower for about 2-8cm (depends on the insulation thickness - the thicker it is, the bigger the deviation).
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this or sizing in general.
All values in grams. Displayed values are for 50cm zipper length.
Add 2g for 70cm zipper length.
*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.
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, drop us an email if you wish to order one.
Custom length, width, added straps (you can order them here), buttons, differential filling (eg. apex 133 top half, apex 200 bottom half) etc. Full length zipper is also an option.
We are quite flexible and more than happy to work with you in order to find something that works for you. However, we do not use down filling.
