Big Meadows 20 Ultralight Three Season Backpacking Quilt Backpacking Quilt Details:

  • Size And Shape: The head end is 56″ (1.42 m)  wide down to the midpoint and tapers to 46″ (1.17m) at the foot end. A foot box can be formed using snaps and a drawcord.
  • 1000FP Down: Fill Power(FP) Fill is a number that indicates the relative performance quality of down. The number is a measurement of how many cubic inches of loft one ounce of that down fill produces. Higher fill power numbers indicate greater loft requiring less down by weight. 1000FP quilts provide the best warmth-to-weight ratio and compress down to a small size for easy packing.
  • Over-stuff: Big Meadows 20° Three Season Ultralight Backpacking Quilts are optimized with a 25% over-stuff.  Besides reducing downshifting it also enables the quilt to maintain its rating if the down loses loft between cleanings. Subsequently, we do not recommend any additional overstuffing.
  • Foot Box: The standard footbox is formed with a drawcord, cord locks, and double-sided Kam Snaps. This allows the quilt to be left as a blanket for easy venting in the summer, a footbox to be formed, or multiple quilts to be stacked in colder temperatures.
  • Shoulder Pockets: Snaps and a drawcord at the head end to form pockets that keep your shoulders warm while you toss and turn.
  • Long-Term Storage: All Big Meadows three-season Backpacking Quilts come in a zippered storage bag. This bag does not compress the quilt and allows airflow. Consequently makes it perfect for long-term quilt storage.
  • Packing: We recommend using a lawn contractor bag while backpacking to keep your Three Season Ultralight backpacking quilt dry while allowing it to expand or compress to fill available space in your backpack evenly.  Alternatively, we offer compression sacks separately for individuals looking to pack their quilt into the smallest space possible.
