Why I make quilts and not mummy bags?
A Blue Bolt quilt is like a sleeping bag. It has a footbox and a simple hood that keeps the head insulated but it doesn't have the back section.
I will share a few reasons why I make quilts.
1. Better sleep
Do you find mummy bags too restrictive? I do. I prefer the comforter at home where I can toss and turn how ever I want. Why can't we have the same comfort while camping? I want everyone to experience full freedom of movement without restrictions and cold drafts while camping outdoors, so I designed a quilt with a foot box, wide girth and draft stopper but without a hood.
2. Lighter and more compact
No loft = No insulation. Do you know that the sleeping bag compressed under you gives zero insulation, and, thus, zero warmth? After I understood this simple idea, I cut off the useless back side of the bag to make the sleeping bag lighter and take less space in my pack.
3. Cuddle with my partner
Why can't I cuddle with my girlfriend while camping?
Now I can with Blue Bolt custom duo (2-person) quilt.
4. Vapor barrier without clamminess
Blue Bolt quilts have integrated vapor barrier inner that keeps the internal moisture out of the insulation without that uncomfortable clammy feeling. This is possible due to the quilt design.
