The Revelation - 10 degree quilt
After getting a chance to try out my new quilt this past spring (and I experienced cold enough nights to utilize the quilt properly), I really like the quilt. It's much lighter than my old 15 degree Western Mountaineering down bag, which was, and still is, awesome in its own right. Back to the Revelation - my only gripe is that the down feathers seem to flock (punt intended) towards the bottom, leaving the top and middle sparsely filled by the down.

Really Tried- Not warm enough
I really, really wanted to like this quilt. Bought it before a thru-hike of the Ouachita Trail in April '17 where the nights were 35-55F and there was not one night I was warm. I even stayed in town one night instead of my plan to keep hiking because night temps were going to be near freezing and I knew this wouldn't hold up. I watched countless YouTube videos on how to properly use this and gave it a trial run (in VA) before taking it out on the trail. It was sized right and I didn't change my sleep system from what I used in VT and the JMT other than this vs a 20F REI Down mummy bag. Didn't matter if I was in a tent or in a shelter- the torso section would be cold (normally my feet run cold so this was odd). I don't think the baffles can hold the down in place over the night even when I would painstakingly shift it all around for even coverage.
Pros: super light, feels nice and warm out of the bag, good craftsmanship
Cons: cost, not warm after down gets compressed in sack
