Description

For ultralight travel (and pure snuggability) a down camping blanket is a versatile piece of kit. 

But that’s not to say you should take your 50 kg duvet from home! Cloud Cover down quilt is made with a lightweight construction and a 200 g fill to keep you cosy in summer months and warmer climates or coupled with a beefier bag for ultimate-winter warmth.

The fill is 750 IDFB hydrophobic goosedown which means that it retains its loft better in damp conditions than untreated down. The corner attachments allow Cloud Cover to be mated with another quilt* or attached to itself to create a more traditional sleeping bag shape. A drawcord on either end can be tightened to keep the warmth in when the temperature drops... Read more

With no zip, hood or foot section to speak of it is no surprise this is one of the lightest options you can find. Perfect for use in vans and as an emergency blanket to keep in the boot of your car.

Care & Environmental Advice

Environmental considerations

DOWNTEK WATER REPELLENT DOWN DownTek-treated down absorbs less water than untreated down. This means it retains its loft better in damp or humid conditions, dries quicker, and recovers better too, keeping you warmer in damp environments than untreated down. DownTek is environmentally safe - Bluesign approved, PFC, PFOA, and PFOS free – and uses only RDS certified down sources. Remember, it’s better not to get your down wet – even water repellent down is no substitute for a waterproof shell! RESPONSIBLE DOWN STANDARD The down we use in Cloud Cover is certified RDS (Responsible Down Standard). This mark indicates that the down in this product does not come from birds that have been live-plucked or force-fed,and that their welfare has been protected from the time they were hatchlings to when they are slaughtered. That’s good to know.

Cloud Cover quilt first look

Sixty five quid! £65 is an almost ridiculously small amount of money to pay when you consider what you're actually getting.

Outdoors Magic Review the Cloud Cover

my favourite feature is the way the Cloud Cover can be packed into an internal, zipped pocket, negating the need for an additional stuff sack – clever stuff.
