Designed using CLIMASHIELD™ APEX synthetic insulation, the Prodigy is a high value quilt that combines great all weather performance and versatility in a low-cost package. The partially zippered/drawcord footbox allows the quilt to be used fully or partially open to vent excess heat, or to cinch down tight to conserve every last bit of warmth. The Climashield Apex insulation continues to effectively insulate even when wet, which is great for hikers and paddlers who need high versatility and all weather performance on a budget. This is also the ideal quilt for summer use, as the insulation isn't as negatively affected by sweat and oils from extra warm nights.

Wasn't sure if the quilt I ordered would arrive in time for my AT hike,but it arrived just in time.We had quite a few -20 nights and with a extra layer of clothes,I stayed pretty cozy.Used it for 19 days and I am pretty much satisfied.

I've only recently received the Prodigy thanks to the interminable delay with UK Customs so this is really an initial impressions review.
Customer service: first rate. Received excellent advice about what options to go for given my height, weight , intended usage, etc. Quilt was dispatched within the time frame quoted and arrived in the UK 2.5 days after dispatch. Simply, I don't think EE could do any better.
Quilt: once unpacked it lofted quickly. Extremely well made to my specification with stitching, zip and poopers all exactly as they should be. Stuff sack, storage sack and straps to fasten the quilt to a pad included. A very high quality piece of work.
Performance: I've only had chance to use the quilt once in anger as yet. Temperature was about 6-7 C (or 43-45F) so above the 40F limit. I was perfectly warm so, based on one night's usage, I'd say the quilt is working to spec. I was only wearing a base layer top, shorts and socks while I slept so I expect the temperature limit could be pushed if wearing more clothes. Indie use a beanie hat but ended up taking it off as I was getting a touch hot. Perhaps not a performance issue per se but the quilt just feels really nice too which boosts the comfort level.
In summary, first class customer service and quilt, well worth the money, recommended to all.

I purchased a prodigy 40 degree synthetic quilt for my trek on the Camino del Norte route is northern Coastal Spain from late April 2015 through early June. I began my trek in Lourdes and stayed at hostels nightly. When I got to St. Jean Pied Dr Port, I took The GR 10 to Hendaye and I run for The Coastal trek. The prodigy is light as a feather and the quilt was perfect for sleeping in hostels, where I did not need to use their sheets or blankets. Now I want to buy a Revelation quilt for backpacking in cooler temps. Outstanding company, I will continue to support Enlightened Equipment.

Love the custom choice of colors - my 7 year old especially. Sturdy product (he has been abusing it as only a 7 year old can with no problems). Great price and service as well.

This quilt is great for hammocking. I am a side and back sleeper and am constantly turning at night. Having a quilt instead of a sleeping bag makes my nights so much better. I have used this quilt successfully in less than 20 degree nights in both Glacier National Park and the Grand Canyon.

This quilt is exactly what I was looking for. After using it every night since I got it I am even more pleased with it. I have only used it indoors but it is extremely warm and is light enough that I can hardly tell that it is on top of me. It compresses well but lofts back up very quickly. The material seems very thin but so far has proved durable and has no tears or obvious wear. the pad straps are great although I would recommend measuring your pad before you order and getting the longer pad straps from the start if you need them. The quilt comes with two sacks, one large one for storage which allows the bag to remain lofted and one small one to serve as a stuff sack, which does not have any compression straps so is not very useful but that is typical with included stuff sacks. I got the 20 degree quilt and it seems like a very honest rating, and the regular-wide size fits my 6 foot wide shouldered frame well.

Excellent product that works as advertised. The material feels nice against the skin and the warmth of the insulation is great. Customer service is also top-notch. I had to have a minor repair done and it was handled in the friendliest, quickest and most efficient way possible. Zero complaints. All the positive things that have been said about EE and their staff are 100% true.
Ive used the quilt many times since receiving it and it has performed up to my expectations. Tremendous value for what you are getting.
The only complaint is that if you are a large framed person with large feet the footbox can be a little snug at times when fully zipped up and cinched down.
Otherwise I am have zero regrets and am planning to buy an enigma and some other items in the future.
Sizing for reference. I am 6'4. With a 59in torso measured around the outside of the arms with a 38in waist and size 16 feet. I would say I am right at the max size for this quilt to work comfortably. Maybe an inch or two taller but its pretty maxed out with me inside it. Hopefully some of the larger hikers can draw a fair comparison from that. I will be opting for the Xwide on the Enigma to accommodate layers in winter and the added space in the footboy.
Again EE has been fantastic to work with and I will be back for more products. Buy with confidence and know that they will be there with industry leading customer service.

I recently ordered the 20 degree prodigy quilt for a backpacking trip in the Northeast and it performed flawlessly! I had a 20 degree bag from a mainstream store when I did a similar trip last year and froze my backside off.
Additionally the Prodigy was much lighter and less bulky.
I am not surprised at the stellar performance, since I already own a Prodigy 40 degree and love it too.
I also love the way the quilt easily and quickly packs into its stuff sack, reducing my break down time in the morning, and the fact that I can order just " the amount of quilt that I need" as I am 5' and of slender build.
Also a shout out to Tyler, who responded quickly to my emails and made sure that my quilt was delivered in time for the trip!

No buyers remorse here! I ordered the Prodigy 20 degree quilt and while it didn't not get down to the 20's on my backpacking trip to the trinity alps, It kept me warm in the low 30's/ High 20's and I am confident that with proper base layers I could go 20 degrees no problem. There's nothing like having the freedom and space to sleep on my stomach, side or back! I was sweating it arriving on time but after talking with Tyler, he made sure it arrived in time for my trip and I received it in the nick of time. thanks for the great product and customer service. I look forward to many years of service from my quilt. *Also I love the color I chose: outside Forest Green with Ageon Blue weather strips/ Inside charcoal.
