Camping quilts available in the UK

Fed up with spending sleepless nights tangled up in your sleeping bag? You’re not alone. There seems to be a growing number of campers who have had enough of being trussed up all night. Thankfully, there are quite a few sleeping bag alternatives on the market nowadays: pods, beds, blankets, quilts, etc. Today we are going to look at camping quilts, and compare the specs of the camping quilts available in the UK.

We have only included camping quilts that use either ethically sourced down (RDS certified, or CODEX approved) or synthetic fillings.

We have compared the key features of the following camping quilts:

  • Alpkit Cloud Cover
  • Big Agnes 2020 Kings Canyon UL Synthetic Quilt
  • Exped Versa Quilt
  • Mountain Equipment Helium Quilt
  • Nemo Siren Down Quilt
  • OneTigris FEATHERLITE Ultralight Sleeping Quilt
  • Outwell Snooze Single (Ok, this is actually a sleeping bag but it opens fully as a quilt)
  • Rab Neutrino 200 Down Quilt
  • Sea to Summit Ember EbII Down Quilt (REGULAR and LARGE)
  • Thermarest 2020 Corus 32 Down Quilt (REGULAR and LONG)
  • Thermarest 2020 Corus 20 Down Quilt (REGULAR and LONG)
  • UGQ Bandit – Custom made

A lot of the quilts we have covered are expensive, by any standards. If you’re on a budget check out the latest price of the OneTigris FEATHERLITE Ultralight Sleeping Quilt at Amazon – it’s fantastic value for money. It also may be worth you checking out what other camping quilts are available on Amazon too. IMPORTANT: If you’re going to buy one with down filling please ensure the down is ethically sourced down (RDS certified, or CODEX approved).

NOTES:

  • The quilts are listed alphabetically.
  • Most of the quilts featured are in stock in the UK. The only one that isn’t is the UGQ Bandit, but we just had to include this as it is custom made with a whole bunch of features you can choose from. You can order it from the US to be delivered to the UK – check out their site for details about this.
  • We struggled to obtain the correct specs for some of the quilts due to the usual problems with conflicting information from suppliers/retailers. We think we got there in the end though. We have included what data we could find from the various manufacturers. Some manufacturers give good detailed information, some give nothing and some give something in between.
  • Length: Some manufacturers give the actual length of the quilt, whereas some give the maximum height of the person that the quilt is suitable for. In the table below you may see “Fits up to” which means the duvet is suitable for someone up to that height.
  • Width: Some manufactures give the width of the quilt (just measuring it straight across), whereas some give the girth, so bear that in mind.
  • Temp rating: Some manufacturers give the ‘comfort’ rating, some give ‘limit’ and some give ‘extreme’. Some give all three. Some give none.
  • Approx price: The prices given are just a guide. If you are interested in a particular quilt then your best bet is to Google it to find the latest prices from reputable dealers.

Note, information in the following table is correct as of Jan 2021.
