Designed using CLIMASHIELD™ APEX synthetic insulation, The Revelation APEX, known previously as 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.

As a first time quilt user I am a convert. The ability to regulate temperature and the lighter, less bulky package (not requiring a sleeping bag base) is what makes this a winner for me.
New Zealand summer conditions in the South Island are highly variable - but do not generally stay warm overnight. So this weight quilt will not go far into the shoulder seasons for me. However, synthetic insulation suits the damp conditions here.
I would purchase a heavier weight climashield version if available. However, I may combine the current warmest weight one I have with a lighter one to cover the spring and autumn temperatures. I have used this approach with sleeping bags and it gives flexibility for the prevailing weather conditions / temps - you expect for a given trip, with little weight penalty.
Workmanship is of a very high standard, that exceeded expectations. The ordering process was very professional and communication excellent.
I have used the upper strap beneath my back, but not under the pad and have found this works great. I do not notice it - there are no comfort issues for me using it this way and it does help the quilt stay in place in cooler conditions when stopping drafts is important. An open foot box option is an essential feature for temperature flexibility, in my opinion. A good sleeping pad is essential, I use an exped synthetic winter lite version.
I feel this product represents good value. I intend to purchase a down version for winter use.

Sadly haven't had the opportunity to test this out yet but my initial impressions are that it is lightweight, comfortable material and decently compressible. I think down would still be more compressible. Won't be able to state any cons because lack of use. You can tell its quality though.

While I got the 50F for summer camping, it was in the mid 40's the first time I took it out. This is my first quilt, so I was a little chilly the first night as I toss and turn a lot at night. However, by the second night I had figured it out and stayed nice and warm for the rest of the trip. I love the weight savings compared to what I had been using. I also bought a 20F Revelation and I can't wait for cold weather so I can get it out. This was part of a system I worked on this summer and ended up reducing my carried weight by almost 20lbs.

This is my second piece of equipment I have bought from Enlightened Equipment and they are flawless. I am a lightweight long distance backpacker and chose this over my down because it is easier to care for and wash, and warm when wet. The material used is very silky and I use it on my bed and couch too. Very happy and highly recommend this product.

I ordered a 40 degree long/wide prodigy in Aegean blue and red. I have slept every night in it and couldn't be happier with my purchase. Thank you so much EE!

Received my Prodigy 50° just in time for a week in Shenandoah. It was perfect for the weather, lightweight for hiking and I love the straps to secure it around my sleeping pad. Looking to purchase the 20° for spring hiking.

As I already own a 0F Enigma quilt, and a pair of EE sleeping booties I knew that borrowing my friend's 40f Prodigy for this past weekend's overnight trip would be great. I was very surprised how light and compressible the insulation was compared to down. It's pretty identical to me.
-I'm 6'3" 195lbs and sleep on mostly on my side and stomach. I used his long/wide 40f Prodigy. The fit was great with just enough room at the foot end. I could have gotten away with a regular width as well. I do sleep on the warmer side of the spectrum.
-The overnight temp inside of my floorless pyramid shelter was 32f. I wore lightweight hiking pants, wool hat, a wool T-shirt and 2 long sleeve wool base layers. I also used a Borah Gear M90 lightweight bivy sack that was partially left open. I use a Thernmarest Neo air Xtherm pad.
I was warm until about 4am when I was a little chilled. I switched to my stomach and then warmed up significantly. I could have worn a warmer insulating base layer pant and been fine.

I'm glad i made the transition from sleeping bags to quilt, this for me is so much easier to use and much more comfortable.
The construction is top notch and has performed really well in various conditions.
I ordered the reg/reg which fits my 6' frame spot on.
Delivery to the UK took a while but only slightly longer than the advertised time, so didn't affect my requirements and again this was well worth the wait.
