  • How did the Blue Bolt Solo Quilt perform in a Lapland winter expedition? A product review of a vapor barrier (vbl) quilt

    The Solo Quilt by Blue Bolt Gear is an innovative product from different points of view and this certainly represents its greatest value. It combines the thermal comfort of a warm sleeping bag with the lightness and comfort of a quilt and the necessary (in intense cold situations) blocking of the transpiration function of a VBL. The materials used are really good and the manufacturing skills are evident. The price is competitive and honest. 

    In my opinion, some improvements are necessary, however: those that I have described and illustrated in this review can be adopted quickly and with a minimum cost. With these minimal modifications, the Blue Bolt Gear Solo Quilt served me very well in my last winter expedition in the mountains of Swedish and Norwegian Lapland. It will surely become my sleeping bag for all future winter expeditions.
