I have never slept better in the backcountry!
I took my Revelation 20 out for my first 2 nights last week and I have to say that I just love a quilt in general and the Revelation specifically. I had the 2 best nights of sleep I have ever had in any tent as I slept a solid 6 hours straight. My usual is waking up every couple of hours. I know it is directly related to the Revelation allowing me to move around all night unrestricted as I'm an active sleeper. It was only about 40 deg F for a low and I was definitely very warm with a 20 deg F quilt, but it was super easy to "just throw the covers off" and let out heat. The Revelation performed wonderfully and I also love how light and packable it is. Selling the mummy bag for good now!!!
Warning to Canadians - Duties & Taxes are BIG - No Reflection on EE
Duties/Customs on my EE Revelation +10 were $150!!!!!!!!
This is more of a public service announcement to any fellow Canadians considering purchasing a quilt AND not any reflection on EE or their gear - they have been great to work with so far.
I haven't actually received my quilt yet, but just received a message from DHL, the shipping company, that I owed $150 in taxes/duties. This is insane given the quilt cost $400. This is an increase in cost of 37.5%!!
Had I known this in advance, I would have not made my purchase, or made arrangements for it to be sent to a contact in the US and then mailed as a gift, as the quilt will be great I am sure but hard to justify a $550 quilt.
Again, I want to STRESS that this has nothing to do with EE but simply a drawback to the current NAFTA situation and living in Canada.
If you're Canadian and ordering - be prepared to spend about 40% for the product.
I'm just praying this quilt is AMAZING as it is now my most expensive piece of gear.....
