Pine Down Blanket

posted in: Backpacking, Bedding, Hiking, Hunting | 0

Ultralight on a budget. Over at Massdrop they have this interesting 3 season down quilt for just US$99.99 (July 2018). It can be used as a blanket or a quilt due to some interesting innovative features. If you pair it with their Massdrop Klymit Ultralight V Sleeping Pad at only US$59.99 you have a very cheap warm weather sleep system. Reader Muzza has this to say about his: ‘The Klymit Massdrop pad with a 4.4 R rating,light (is) way comfy. I’m playing with it and the Massdrop Pine Down Quilt (US99 Jul 2018). Slept in 3C the other night in Bendigo (Victoria Australia) with only a cheap thermal top and bottom on. Had a puffy jacket and beanie and socks at the ready and didn’t need them.’ These should be a really good option for the warm(er) weather hiker on a budget to consider.
