Wilderness Logic and EnLIGHTend Equip. Comparison
Iím 6í1Ē, 160 lbs and Iím looking at a couple of TQs. In particular, Iím looking at the Wilderness Logic King TQ: 78 in x 55 inches, 25 oz, 14 oz 800 fill of down good down to 20*. Sewn footbox.
Iím also looking at the enLIGHTend Equipment Revelation TQ. The long version is 84 in. x 38 (foot) x 48 (shoulder). Has about 14 oz of 850 fill down and weighs about 25 oz. Also good to about 20* (maybe a little better). Zipper and drawstring footbox.
I will sometimes need to go to ground and itís my understanding that a wider quilt is better suited for ground sleeping, especially for a side sleeper/someone who tosses and turns at night.
Anyone have any experience with these manufacturers and/or dimensions? Or similar dimensions with other quilts? Is the 78 inch King long enough for someone my height? Iím asking b/c manufacturers are all over the place with lengths and how tall you can be and still fit comfortably. EnLIGHTend also sells a 78 in version which I think could fit in but I might err on the side of caution and get a longer version, if need be. (Tim at EnLIGHTend recommends the longer quilt but thinks I would be OK in the 78 in. model since I'm on the slim side). Is a 48 inch TQ wide enough for someone who also needs to go to ground on occasion?
Any input is greatly appreciated!
I grabbed and enLIGHTend quilt
Thanks to everyone who chimed in. I purchased a Revelation X quilt from enLIGHTend Equipment today. This was a very tough decision, but Tim offered to make his narrow model a bit wider for me and the price made it an offer I couldn't refuse. The WL King looks fantastic and everyone's support of that product and that company means I will keep it in mind for the future if this one doesn't work out. I also hope to provide a review of the EE quilt. Tim is well known at backpackinglight.com and has a stellar reputation. He's a hammock man, too, but his presence here isn't as strong as over at BPL. I have a feeling that his reputation will rise considerably since he has some awesome deals right now and more hammock guys will take advantage of the opportunity. He really showed excellent customer service toward me and I'm grateful for that. I'll let you all know how it works out.
