    EE Revelationx X 2?

    Anyone using an Enlightened equipment Revelationx (or revelation) as an underquilt?

    With the current sale, I'm likely going to buy 2. I'll use both in winter, and an underquilt each for my wife and I the other 3 seasons.

    Think I'll have any issues? I'm not worried about quality - there are enough testimonials out there, I'm just looking for something full length that will double for top and bottom.

    Cheers!

    If you are going to use as a UQ consider getting a wide. The price difference I think is only like $10 and will provide nearly the same coverage as a dedicated UQ.

    I though the Revelationx was a top quilt?
    How do you plan to suspend this as a UQ?

    It's supposed to double as a full length underquilt. Says so in the fine print on the website

    I'll be getting both long and wide, to match my own self

    Yes, it works very well. No need for regular/wide, the regular is already 54" across at the shoulders, 40" at foot. That's huge. 72" long.

    Enlightened recommends slim for hammock use, and I agree. Regular/slim is still 50" wide at the shoulders.

    Pictured is regular.

    just ordered a pair of long & wide, I'm 6'2" and I like to reach above my head, and I roll around a lot - I like to have the underquilt reach around a little.

    Ready made x2 in black. CAN'T WAIT!!

    Update - the quilts came in and are beautiful!

    I used them out in the wilds of my sister in-law's back woods and they worked pretty well. I need to simplify my suspension a little, but they definitely function as advertised.
    Qualified to do almost anything with almost nothing. Ask me how!
