As any bigger people know finding outdoor gear that will work for you is a major pain in the butt… Sleeping bags, especially mummy bags can be tough to find. Most outdoor companies don’t think about us “husky” folks.
Wilderness Logics, a relatively unknown company is different in this department, they make a top quilt (think zipper less sleeping bag). Top quilts are great they save weight and the insulation under you when in your sleeping bag does not do much for warmth when compressed. Top quilts are the go to for hammock camping.
The Wilderness Logics King Top Quilt is built for us bigger folks in mind, tall or wide… It is 55″ x 78″ with a
sewn foot box to tuck your feet into. I’m about 300lbs and this quilt fits me perfect. Big people’s hunt for a great sleeping bad has ended! They even have a smaller quilt for not so husky people… 6″ shorter and 7″ narrower, saving 3oz.
Every time I get a piece of gear from a cabin company I am always so surprised with the quality and Wilderness Logics has some of the best work I have seen. They have a history in sewing for interior design and when a furniture company in their area closed the derided to jump into the outdoor market to put skilled people in their community back to work… HOW AWESOME!
The quilt is made of 1.1 ripstop and stuffed with 14oz of 800+ down baffled to 2″, all the seams are straight and sturdy. The down seems to stay put well not shifting around too much… One of the neatest features is the fleece patch to absorb condensation, I like it because it is comfy against the skin too. The patch attaches with Velcro so it can be removed for washing. I took this quilt into the 40′s in a hammock with nothing but underwear on and was toasty warm. They give the bag a 20 degree rating, but I think it would go lower.
It weighs in a 25oz and stuffs down to 12×7. This may seem large and a bit heavy for down but remember you are getting a bag that is going to fit you comfortably…
Wilderness Logics has other products from hammocks to tarps and under quilts too. I would not hesitate one bit to stand behind them 100% check them out you will not be disappointed!
