When it comes to thread count, the jury is still out. While thread count once was considered luxurious by the higher numbers, these days it is more important to consider the weave. The weave affects how the comforter feels, looks, and how long it will last. What it boils down to is the fibers, longer fibers are going to be stronger and more resilient against piling.
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.
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).

Bedding connoisseurs will appreciate the attention to detail and exclusive materials that are used to create these luxurious comforters. Extra stitching prevents down from shifting to the edges of the comforter. True baffle boxes give your comforter an extra 2″ of loft. Only the very warmest Northern European white goose down and tightly woven European cotton fabrics will do.
With a 650 fill power, this style from JCPenney is a great option for year-round use. If you're looking for more warmth, this comforter is also available in Level 1 (600 fill power) or Level 3 (700 fill power) options. The 100% cotton cover has a 350 thread count, which is great for preventing down from poking through. It's machine washable (as long as there's enough room for it to move freely) and it has a baffle-box construction to keep the down evenly distributed. Keep an eye out for a sale on this one; it's rarely sold at its listed price.
Amish quilts are entirely hand quilted. The quilt top, batting, and quilt backing fabric are sandwiched together and held taut in a quilting frame. The quilter then uses needle and thread to place each quilting stitch in the quilt. A typical queen size bed quilt will have forty to fifty thousand such stitches. The quilting stitches are small (6 to 12 per inch), straight and uniform. To insure uniformity all the quilting for each quilt is done by one quilter.
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.
The difference between true down comforters and alternative down comforters is the fill. The fill in alternative down comforters is synthetic and designed to mimic those soft down clusters. They are completely proven to be hypoallergenic. Alternative down comforters were created specifically for this reason, so people with strong allergies could benefit from down qualities.

Baffle box stitching is important as it maximizes strength, thickness and is responsible for preventing any shifting or corner-clumping in the comforter. Baffle box stitching creates the flatter, smoother version of down comforters, as opposed to a sewn-through box stitching which shows as more fluffy and loftier. Baffle box stitching measures usually between 6 and 15 inches.
