The Convert is designed for those who want to try the versatility and relaxed feel of a quilt, but aren’t quite ready to give up the familiarity and security of a traditional sleeping bag. The Convert shares the same buckles and straps as our bestselling Revelation quilt, with the addition of new vertical baffles, full length zipper, double draft blocking tubes and reinforced zipper backing more common to a sleeping bag. The zipper can be used down the center, on the left, or right side so it is always accessible. Want to sleep next to your partner? Multiple same length Converts can be zipped together to form a larger sleep system (though for a quilt specifically designed for two users, check out the Accomplice). The Convert does it all, while still being one of the lightest sleep systems on the market!

Have not tried in the field yet but has just the right width (ordered a wide) length (xtra long) and temp rating (-10 for a cold sleeper) to allow for my need to sprawl out like a starfish when I sleep and to tuck most of my head inside as I will miss having a hood. Staff was very helpful in making my decisions and the quilt arrived right on time. Love that I can open it up and use like a very warm quilt on the couch. Yes, I will to be careful with the lite zipper. Thanks for a greater product - I had previously had a Revelation but missed the familiarity of sleeping bag. Void is now filled.

I enjoy 10 to 14 day backpacking trips. But I am no athlete. I am a larger guy, and I have been disappointed in most lightweight backpacking sleeping bags because they are too tight. Your convert is absolutely perfect. The quality is top notch. and it is everything your website promised. I am extremely satisfied. I read other reviews with concerns about the zipper, but I have not had any problems. For serious trekkers who want some comfort at night, this is an excellent value.

Excellent product. Used it on an 11 day backpacking trip and it worked very well. Compresses well, light, comfortable, and versatile. I would definitely buy it again. The comments about the zipper seem accurate. I also had a few (minor?) issues with it.

This was the only bag that I could find that had the versatility, quality and design features that I was looking for in a top of the line sleeping bag and when it arrived I was certainly not disappointed. My Enlightened Equipment Convert is without comparison to what I already own and when in use it feels like I am sleeping in my own bed and not wrapped up taut in a conventional sleeping bag as you're able to assume your chosen sleeping position. I have already used it in alpine conditions, in a bivvy bag, in a quinzhee, out in the open on a mat, tent, and under a tarp. On one occasion it got wet at the feet and it dried out within one hour. So impressed that I am ordering another one for warm weather.

I bought the Downtek -6C X 6' sleeping bag for my back country hunting trips in the Canadian Rockies. I'm amazed at how compact and light weight it is and with the side kick booties and hoodlum hoody while sleeping in a pair of light long underwear I stayed quite comfortable throughout the nights in temperatures dropping as low as -2C. I will only use Enlightened Equipment from now on! Top Quality and Service Thank You!!!

I have completed 5 multiday trips, the longest being 7 days. The 4 star rating is not for the zipper itself, but the way it was engineered into the bag. Like the other reviewers said, it gets stuck/jammed/snagged all the time. I don't think there is enough space between the fill and the zipper teeth, or add some stiffening fabric. The nylon keeps falling into the path of the slider. Hard to get out of a hammock at night when the zipper gets stuck 3 times while opening it. I would be more than glad to take 3oz hit on weight for a reliable and easy zipper usage. Just a matter of time before it jams hard and need to call in for a repair.

I have this bag and I love it. The only bad thing I have to say about it is the zipper really sucks. If not for that, this is a 5 star bag. I'm happy with my purchase but would send it in to be modified if EE ever offers a better one.

My wife recently completed the JMT and was the first to use our new Convert. Talking about the awesome trip after, I asked her what her best/favorite piece of gear was. Without a seconds hesitation she said the Convert.
Can't wait to try it on my upcoming High Sierra Trail trip.

If they would just put the strap connections on all of these, then they would be a perfect setup. I am a side sleeper and I flop around a lot. Without the straps I can not stay well covered. I was lucky enough to get them added and it makes this thing work fantastic.
Anytime it is not really cold I prefer to use as a quilt with the straps. When it does get cold, I have the option of zipping in to stay nice and warm.
I purchased the 10* version and I am quite warm when zipped in at 20* and comfortable at 30* with it used as a quilt and strapped to the pad.

Not much to say besides that this will likely be my do-all bag/quilt for a long time coming. It was up to snuff on a recent desert PCT section, especially impressed with the insulation efficacy around the feet.
