The Revelation top quilt is the most versatile quilt available. It uses a partially-zippered footbox (the zipper extends 20" from the foot to the back of your knees) which allows the footbox to quickly be opened or closed, and weighs only 1 gram more than using snaps. Utilizing a simple yet adaptable attachment system, you can cinch the quilt edges down tight for cold weather, or open up for more ventilation when it’s warm, including opening the whole quilt and footbox flat like a blanket. The Revelation is made-to-order just for you, without a custom price tag. Choose the specific down option, size, temperature rating, and fabrics you need to hit the performance you need with no unnecessary weight. This is the perfect quilt for canoeists, kayakers, hikers, climbers, and cyclists who need minimal weight while being able to adapt to any situation they may find on the trail.

I am 5'5" and weigh 130lbs, I got a short regular width and it is plenty long for me and I can bend my knees and roll around with it fully clipped, zipped and tightened. I got just 800 fill and the loft is incredible. I was worried about the Nylon being very thin and flimsy but it is definitely not: I got 10D inside and full 20D outside because I backpack with my dog and wanted extra protection. I haven't field tested yet but I'm confident that the nylon will hold up just fine against her sleeping on or under it, I don't see that it is translucent like others have said. So far it is exactly what I expected and the materials and quality are top notch. The fit is exactly how they say it will be so follow their instructions for length and width!

I have used the quilt three times. While the temps have been no lower than 50 its very warm. The footbox one may even open to vent in warmer weather.
The ability to roll to one side freely is great. The overall feel is freedom vs being incased in a sleeping bag. Since i am dating and the weather is turning brisk the size and compatibility looks promising for serious snuggling at the beach or out on a hike.
My daughter pulled it out setting up camp and wanted to know where my sleeping bag was & what was this small thing :)
I have roasted if i left more than 1 layer on FYI however its super easy to modulate your temp with slight adjustments.
Was it worth the wait YES.

I have only had a chance to use this a hand full of times so far. That said the times I have I have had absolutely no bad things to say. Super lightweight and stuffable. Very durable. Warm to the point iv'e used it mainly as just a blanket. The only downside to this I would say is the time it takes to get it though it came on time with the expected date. Being a small company that makes a superior product at an affordable price I am willing to wait. I will be buying one for my wife and daughter.

I wasn't about to write a review of my quilt until I had used it multiple times. Now I have used it on more than a thousand miles of hiking in Florida and on the PCT in Socal and Washington. I love this quilt! It was less expensive than my old Chinese-made Montbell Superspiral bag and is also warmer, more versatile, much better constructed and much lighter. The disappointing Montbell bag leaked down and feathers every time I used it - not this quilt. It is perhaps my favorite piece of backpacking gear. Thanks, EE! Keep up the good work. I am so glad high-quality, affordable backpacking gear is being made in America. Suck it, China!

Great service and arrived within the specified delivery time.
The import duty (£42) on top of the purchase price takes the cost to well over £200 but you really do get what you pay for.
I'm 6' 2" and bought the long/wide option and more than adequate (and weighs in at just over 21ounces)
Weight for me is critical as I want it for the Camino Frances early next year.
Overall, a fantastic piece of equipment....

The first time I used my Revelation quilt I was a little dubious, because it is so light that it felt like thistledown. It didn't disappoint however, and I was toasty warm. Unlike a sleeping bag however it is easy to adjust for overheating simply by extending arms or legs from underneath the quilt. The quality is very good, the stitching is even and regular, and the general finish excellent. I have no hesitation in recommending it.

I wanted a lighter option than my old 3# mummy bag. After a lot of research, comparing reviews, costs, temperature ratings, and weight, I decided to take a chance on a quilt. I hike and backpack in the Pacific Northwest, 3-season. At 5'3", I could have gotten a short, slim. I chose a 10F, regular length, regular width so I'd have plenty to wrap up in.
I used my quilt for the first time this past weekend, and loved it. It was still warm out (over 50f) when I went to bed, and downright chilly by morning. With my mummy bag, I'd have struggled to stay comfortable. With the quilt I was comfy all night by adjusting how snuggled up I was in it.
The quilt shaved over 1.5# off my pack weight, saved space, and let me sleep better. I'm a quilt convert. :-)

I received my quilt the day before I left for the CT. I was a bit nervous leaving with something I was unfamiliar with. The weight savings over my traditional bag of the same temp rating made the decision for me. To summarize, I'll not go back to a full mummy for three season use. I'm convinced that quilts are the better product.
My only feedback / thoughts have to do with the breathability of the water treated down. It is possible that the non-treated down would have been better for me. This is all speculation on my part as comparison testing isn't something I could do. I found the bag to be less breathable then I'd have liked. Even when I was cold, I'd get sweaty and clammy. These quilts have excellent venting options vs. a traditional mummy but regardless of the temp, I'd get clammy. I'm skinny and I sweat at night so this is more about what might have been best for me and something others might think about when placing a order.
I'm not stating a negative, just something to think about when deciding options. This bag is top notch. I'm really happy with my decision to do business with this company.

I bought my Revelation for a 12 day thru-hike on the Northville-Placid trail in the Adirondacks. It was an excellent addition to my gear. I used it to hammock camp and while staying in lean-tos. it was versatile enough to handle both situations. It was very warm on the nights that were cold and I loved the flexibility that a quilt provides on hot nights. No need to be cooped up in a mummy bag. Great purchase!

I finally decided to try a quilt out instead of getting a mummy. After a ton of research, I'm insanely happy I decided on the EE Revelation. I'm a designer too, so the plentiful color choices made me even happier..haha. I finished a thruhike of the CT and this quilt kept me toasty warm, even when I woke up with condensation (sometimes frozen condensation) on my bag. I also wasn't the most gentle with my bag, I would be so tired at night I'd pull my bag out of the stuffsack with more gusto than I should have. No rips or tears. Love love love it! Very worth the wait!
