Best Quilts For Sale

In this review we selected the best backpacking quilts for 3-season adventures. We were especially looking for highly functional products which have a great warmth-to-weight ratio. If you think you might want to go for a sleeping bag instead, check out our review of the Best Lightweight 3-season Sleeping Bags. As quilts leave your back in direct contact with a sleeping pad, many use them together with sleeping bag liners which significantly increase the comfort for very little added weight (a sleeping bag liner can weigh as little as 100 grams). Check out our review of the Best Sleeping Bag Liners here.
If you live in a chilly climate or in an a home with poor insulation, you know what it means to get cold at night! For these homes, you want high loft (meaning lots of material between the outer layers) and a material that will hold in heat, like down, down alternative or wool, to help you get and stay warm for hours on end, so look for a fluffy box-stitched quilt to do the trick. This one is made from 100% polyester and a down alternative to make it both hypoallergenic and more affordable and can be used with or without a duvet cover.
The Therm-a-Rest Corus HD quilt is another great choice for 3-season hiking. The quilt uses 650-fill power down which is treated with Nikwax so that it repels the water (hydrophobic down) rather than absorbing it. Therefore, it offers better warmth when exposed to moisture than regular down. The shell is made of 20-denier DWR treated nylon for good abrasion resistance and weather protection. The quilt has also an elastic footbox so that it keeps your feet warm at low temperatures. As it features snap loops it can easily be attached to a sleeping pad. It comes in two different sizes – regular (193 cm in length) and long (203 cm in length).

Since polyester batting became available sixty years ago it has been the batting material most always used in Amish quilts. Being much easier to quilt than raw cotton batting found in antique quilts and by making a quilt much easier to launder (wet cotton batting weighs 'a ton!') practical Amish women quickly made the switch. Excellent but more expensive woolen batting is also occasionally used in Amish quilts.


Most down comforters only need to be cleaned once every year or so. You can wait longer if you use a duvet cover to protect the comforter. If machine washing, always use mild detergent and a delicate cycle. Dry using no heat, as down comforters are sensitive to higher temperatures yet they take quite a bit time to dry completely. Even one damp area can become moldy.
Down comforters are rated by fill power. The higher the number, the more air the down traps and the warmer it will be. So if you're looking for something extra-toasty, you'll want a fill power of 600 or higher. Make sure to also check the construction: A baffle-box design (that looks like the checkered patterns on quilts) has walls of fabric to help contain the down so it doesn't move from one section to another and cause lump or cold spots.
It has four different warmth options to choose from (super light, light, medium, and extra), as well as an option for a standard or oversized comforter. What remains constant across all varieties is the hypoallergenic-tested Hungarian-goose-down fill, an incredibly fluffy feel, a 430-thread-count combed cotton sateen cover, and 15-inch baffle-box stitching that keeps the loft in place. It's available in all sizes from twin to king, and it does require professional dry cleaning to keep it in its peak condition.
