  • Comparatively affordably priced
  • Additional clips can be used to block even the most determined drafts

The biggest challenge for any sleep system is that the ambient air temperature is going to be different every time you head into the backcountry. Sometimes you might even get a 20 to 30 degree temperature swing on a single trip; if you’re thru-hiking it might be as high as 50 degrees. The better your ultralight quilt can adapt to a variety of conditions, the better you’re going to sleep.

This is where the Katabatic Gear Flex excelled. It had the longest footbox of any ultralight quilt we looked at to the point that it was almost a quilt–sleeping bag hybrid. But it’s a zipped footbox, so if that feels excessive to you, you can unzip it partially or even all the way so that it’s blanket-shaped. It also has a double-attachment point for the straps that can go under your sleeping pad. These straps attach and lock into place at the edge, like most backpacking quilts, but can be attached at a second point a few inches past that (similar to the single attachment point of the Therm-a-Rest Vesper). This gives you a surprisingly amount of control in cinching up your quilt for maximum warmth, and letting it breathe when temperatures are higher so that you don’t overheat.

This is a bit more complicated to use than the other strap attachments we ran into in our test—it was the only quilt that had (or needed) double-sided instructions to use. It ended up being too complicated for one of our testers (and quilt skeptics), as it turns out. She also felt that this ultralight quilt had more of a “barely there” feel to it than others in our test. If you sleep best with the weight of a blanket on top of your body, this may be an issue for you as well, although we think most ultralight backpackers will read our testers’ feedback as high praise.
