Western Mountaineering AstraLite Quilt

Cozy Comforter

Brand: Western Mountaineering

Model: AstraLite Quilt

Most quilts, no surprise, have a reputation for leaking heat out the sides. But not this featherweight number. Western Mountaineering has been making high-end down bags for 32 years, and its first foray into quilts follows the brand’s DNA: premium 850-fill down, ultralight fabric, and a conservative rating. “I took this quilt past its temp rating in Dixie National Forest, Utah, down to 20°F, and had no trouble sleeping,” one tester says. At just 1 pound, 4 ounces the AstraLite is thru-hiker light, and it packs down to the size of a cantaloupe. Drawback: The pad connector system is overly futzy.
