SEA TO SUMMIT
DOUBLE EMBER 1 QUILT
A versatile lightweight double quilt that can change opinions.
By Ryan Hansen
But it’s not all about the warmth. The Double Ember 1 is, after all, designed as an ultralight quilt, and the 850 loft means that, for its warmth, its weight is minimal—our quilt weighs in at 650g. Despite being super light, it’s surprisingly spacious; even with the four-strap system in use, our movement hasn’t been restricted whatsoever. While the quilt is marketed as having a 90% down fill, the provided IDFL report indicates that our quilt actually comprises 97% Responsible Down Standard (RDS) certified goose down. The Double Ember 1 quilt also features the PFC-free, Sea to Summit Ultra-Dry treatment, improving its water resistance. And, if you’re a Sea to Summit aficionado, the Quiltlock system makes it compatible with other S2S gear.
It’s light, compact, and deceptively warm when used cleverly. Two thumbs up from me.
