Why I made these quilts?
Waking up in a damp sleeping bag is a terrible feeling I am personally familiar with. It has a terrible impact on your entire camping experience, and in some cases might get you cold or sick.
I designed these quilts with dual internal and external moisture barrier combined with breathable draft stoppers to solve the wet sleeping bag problem without feeling clammy. The design is inspired from the quilts used in South Pole, Aconcagua & Greenland by Ray Jardine and improved with new features like built in VB, Apex insulation, 3D footbox and 10D fabrics.
This ultralight, no-fuss sleeping solution keeps me and my partner dry, warm and comfortable in the Himalayas.

Peter Van Geit, ultrahiker | Completed 4 months solo hike in Himalayas
I completed a 4 month exploration / alpine style / minimalist / ultra hike across 120 passes in Uttarakhand, Himachal, Ladakh (Indian Himalayas) and had a very positive experience in using the Blue Bolt solo quilt.
It's is super light and comfortable even while sleeping at near zero temperatures. I did not carry a tent and was mostly sleeping in the open with just the quilt and basic Decathlon Quecha sleeping mat. I only used a lightweight bivy in case of rains and cold winds in which the quilt again was providing comfort and warmth from 1000 to 5000 meters altitude.
The quilt never had any condensation and easily dries when wet. When sleeping in the open it nicely cuts the cold wind. One of the best items in my minimalist gear set this year!

★★★★★ An ultralight alternative that rocks!
The quilt is a perfect companion for my solo treks. I used it for 10 days during my trek in Laddakh and camped at altitudes ranging from 4000 meters to 4750 meters. The quilt is ultralight (weighs 650 grams), extremely comfortable as compared to sleeping bags and can withstand temperatures of -5 degrees easily. It kept me comfortable even while camping at 4750 meters with a basic mat below my back.
