Not all TopQuilts are the same…Yes most are going to save you weight and space on the trail, which is why they are rising in popularity among all backpackers, but there is a better question to ask yourself. Will it keep you warm and comfortable?
When we designed the new Outdoor Vitals StormLoft™ TopQuilt, we wanted to fix or eliminate common questions and concerns we were seeing our followers bring up. Questions like, “how do I avoid drafts”, “is there a learning curve to quilts”, “I’m a side sleeper, will this work for me?”, and many more!
That’s exactly what we did with a complete redesign! We added a draft collar, widened the quilt, curved the shoulders to your neck, optimized the cut around your body to naturally fall around you effortlessly, include two pad straps for confidence as you toss and turn and even redesigned the footbox for added warmth without affecting space!
What's more, a Roll-top Dry Bag & Storage Bag are included - giving you a better experience before, during, & after your trips!
If you are looking to lighten your backpack, save some space or add an extremely versatile piece to your kit, make sure you look close at the details of the new StormLoft™ Down TopQuilts!

Your StormLoft Down Topquilt is a high performance piece of gear. It needs some extra attention to keep it performing at the highest level.
Please read through the care instructions below to ensure that you care for it properly:
- Always wash your down product completely alone to prevent down migration.
- Never wash your down product in a washing machine that has an agitator.
- If you cannot follow either of these prior instructions you should hand wash your sleeping bag using the detergent and drying process described below.
The Wash & Dry Process
- Use a mild detergent like Dreft (for babies) or Nikwax (for technical gear).
- Choose Low Spin or Delicate wash.
- Choose Cold Wash & Cold Rinse.
- Hang dry until the sleeping bag is completely dry.
- Then loft and redistribute your down insulation in the dryer by running it for 10 minutes on low or no heat with 3 dryer balls.
Long Term Storage
- Do not store down product compressed long term. Long term compression weakens the insulation's ability to loft and therefore insulate.
- We recommend hanging it in your closet or putting it in a pillow case for storage between uses.

Topquilt In Use
Designing the StormLoft Down Topquilt
Just got the new bag and tried it for 3 nights. I found the foot / lower leg area too small and constricting.. Nice material though but find it overpriced
StormLoft™ Down TopQuilt
Worth every cent! And the R value is no joke!
This is a long term review after using the 15 degree quilt for most of the Appalachian Trail this year. Overall, great product and kept me warm as a cold sleeper as a woman. First time quilt user.
The quilt was durable and compressed well within my pack. It tolerated condensation pretty well from brushing against tent walls. Took me a bit to get the hang of the pad straps as a side sleeper who moves a lot while sleeping. Tip: mark up your pad at the right height and which buckle.
I used the 15 deg quilt until temps were reliably above 50F overnight. It was easy to vent and I'm not too bothered by sleeping hot.
I did get to 15 deg air temp once and while I survived, it was not comfortable, despite having good base layers, insulated mat, liner, hat, and extra space blanket. In the mid 20s I would still wake up cold. Even with the draft collar snug, I used a jacket as a "scarf" around my shoulders to block out cold air. I was new to cold weather camping at the time but am excited to have this quilt so I can extend my camping season.
Spent 3 days in the North East on the Appalachian Trail. We were at 4300 feet in 45* weather with a full downpour happening. All of my gear got wet due to how heavy the rain was.. and this quilt and under quilt combo kept me warm and safe. Highly recommend.
