You're probably like me and own a mummy sleeping bag, it's one of the go-to products big-box camping stores push on campers. However, you may have heard that there's a new option sweeping the camping nation. Trail Quilts, and they have some incredible advantages.
What's a Trail Quilt? Basically it is a cross between a Sleeping Bag and a Blanket, specifically designed to be lightweight, roomy, and warm!
Here are the top 5 reasons campers have been ditching the Mummy Sleeping Bag for Trail Quilts.
1. Lighter Weight.
Trail Quilts don't waste insulation and materials on your backside, thus creating a lighter more efficient insulator.
2. Less Restrictive.
Thanks to an open design - the trail quilt gives you a more comfortable night's sleep and freedom to wiggle as you please.
3. More Packable.
Since you aren't hauling around the extra materials (back side), the overall design is more efficient, this gives you a lot more space in your pack.
We've all faced that dreaded zipper snag, Trail Quilts don't have any of the toothed monsters waiting to eat your skin and whitey tighties.
Trail Quilts can be used on the ground or in the air, where as normal mummy bags are too restrictive in a hammock.
