    Enlightened Revx review

    RevelationX TQ came in Friday. So I took it out this weekend, and I thought I would share my experience with it.
    Specs. 20 degree, 6' wide, 30% over fill
    Baffle 2"
    Length 72"
    Taper straight
    850 fill 15.65 oz
    Max loft 2.75"
    weight 25.5 oz


    First thing I looked at was all stitching. Great quality. Could not find one out of place. Back stitched all over. Good quality YKK zipper, nice snaps that hold well. I like how the webbing goes all the down the quilt. They make it easy to use it as a uq. The foot box opens up to make venting fast and easy. My scale put it at 26oz.
    I got to use it two nights. The low temps 43 first night 41 second. I had to open the foot box up to vent the heat. Was hot the whole night. Which is great I'm the worlds coldest sleeper. The loft in the quilt is crazy a lot more then 2.75". The karo design make it so easy to move the down around . I was worried about how that would work. No down leaked out. Everything was perfect. Just wish it was a little cooler out so I could give a real test

    I ordered myself a revX a few hours before you posted. Good to hear that you are happy. I plan to use it as a UQ at 40-50F and as a TQ at 20-30F.

    I ordered one during the December sale and couldn't be happier. Great TQ, pad straps are a nice feature and foot box is very warm.

    It is a very alert, active sheep, with a stylish, lively carriage.

    I don't think they come with a stuff sack. They must not as I've had a handful of requests for stuff sacks for customers who had Rev X quilts. We had to guess the stuff size based on the shipping box.
