Ultralight Down Quilts from PHD
In what has to be one of the lightest sleeping options available, PHD have recently launched these down quilts for ultralight backpacking, or just throwing on your bed at home, as you choose. The single weighs in at a barely there 375g and the double at 620g. Designed to be used with a decent sleeping mat there’s attachment loops to keep them sheeps from stealing it while you sleep. Definately high on the want list, but unless I plan on some serious long distance trips such as the PCT or Santa is both suddenly very generous and six months early, then it’s unfortunately not going to find itself into my kit cupboard.
If you’re scared you’ll get cold feet (while sleeping not when clicking submit on the WorldPay page) then for an extra £25 you can even add a Footbag to keep them tootsies warm. Bless..
Available from the PHD website priced at £195 and £285 respectively for the single and double.
Dave also established Walk up Snowdon, Walk up Scafell Pike and Walk up Ben Nevis just to mention a few.
