    VB vs Breathable quilts

    My story - testing both vapor barrier and highly breathable quilts:

    In 2012, I made my first vapor barrier quilt and used it on several Himalayan expeditions. I chose a vapor barrier inner because I wanted the quilt to stay free of condensation during snowing conditions. I was so impressed by the quilt’s ability to keep me warm and dry that I decided to offer them for sale on backpacpackinglight.com forums.

    (Due to several reasons, I discontinued the project.)

    In 2017, I made a 2 person quilt using a very breathable mesh inner and uncalendered hyperD top and used it on my 2 year backpacking journey. My reason for choosing a highly breathable  fabrics was that it would help prevent condensation. Later when I did more study on condensation, I found that in high humid conditions, highly breathable fabric will not prevent condensation if the due point is inside the insulation layer. I shared this quilt with my girlfriend and was happy with the weight and space savings on the backpacking trip. My girl friend was not so happy with width, draft issues, no footbox and warmth.Yes, the quilt was very breathable but the trade off is warmth.

    In March '19, I made a new 2-person quilt based on what I have learned from using both vapor barrier and highly breathable quilt with several improvements. I made the quilt wider, added a 3D footbox, draft stopper, anatomical cut, vapor barrier inner and highly windproof outer. I and my girlfriend tested it for 2 weeks at 8400 ft  and we are both very happy with this version. There is no clammy feeling!

    After sharing it among my mountaineering friends, I got 2 orders. Motivated by the positive feedback I got in India, I put the project out again on BPL and Reddit forums and got overwhelming response.

    I contacted Peter van Geit through a friend and he agreed to test the bag out out on his 4 months trans Himalayan solo hike. After getting more feedback from him and other early users, I launched blueboltgear.com in September '19.

    Thank you.

    FAQs

    1) Can you explain the vapor barrier thing?

    Vapor barrier is non breathable inner layer that keeps moisture off your insulation, keeping you dry, warm and comfortable in bad weather. I am using a custom made 10D silnylon which is silky soft and non tacky.

    2) Does vapor barrier refer to the quilt not breathing? What are the advantages of having a vapor barrier quilt?

    Vapor barrier fabric doesnt breath but in my test I found the quilt still breathes through the draft stopper fabric and for that reason doesnt have clammy feeling. Without the VB, the quilt will be good 35-40f for most people. VB adds 10-15f warmth at no additional weight. Also you do not need a bivy with a VB quilt since shell has a very good DWR and there is no actual transport of sweat taking place from the body to the outside. I make my quilts 54″ wide (1-person) and 72″ wide (2-person)  with draft stoppers, which is works well to avoid drafts.

    3) A waterproof inner sounds awfully clammy to me too. How does this actually feel in the field?

    After using the quilt, I and my girlfriend never found any clammy feeling. The moisture breathes out through the draft stopper. 

    4) I live in Sydney and plan on doing some snow camping and the Larapinta trail in the middle of Australia. It gets down to about -2C or roughly 28F. I want to know your thoughts on your quilt and its suitability, I will layer up if required, polartec 100 pants and a top maybe polartec 300. Whats your thoughts?

    This quilt would be keep you warm in those conditions.You can layer inside the quilt.

    5) I have only just started looking into the sleeping in a plastic bag then in your sleeping bag to add a few degrees etc, I am really not sure on this concept?? Is this what you mean by the vapor barrier type quilt??

    The plastic bag is a vapor barrier. Since the quilt has a built in VB, plastic bag is not required.

    6) I am also 54′ around the shoulders and sleep on a UL7 Downmat (2.5inchs) I am 173cm(68inchs) in height and are worried that the quilt in your standard configuration would be wide enough for me??

    I can make 1-person upto 58″ width. The thing to note is that unlike a bag which goes around you, the quilt stays only on the top. You may leave the draft stopper fabric on the side hanging down your pad, this is enough to keep the drafts out.

    7)  I have read all about the VB, my concern after I thought about it more is how can I layer up if I m cold?

    Before I thought that layers inside the vapor barrier quilt would get damp with perspiration but further testing showed that this is not the case. You can layer inside this quilt. The moisture moves out through the breathable draft stopper.
