Sleep in the clouds.
We went to cloud 8 once, and it was all right, but nowhere near as good as the Cloud 9 Comforter from Western Mountaineering. While cloud 8 is mostly made of moisture and suspended dust particles, the Cloud 9 is made of light and soft nylon, stuffed full of super-warm 800-fill goose down. The quilted box stitch construction keeps the insulation from shifting, and corner ties let you lock it down.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Awsome all around blanket. Very useful whether to be used in the car, in your home, or whatever/wherever you want to. Very warm; easy to pack; weighs nothing.
May give you some sparks in dry weather...when you rub the fabric too much...?
Couch or tent?
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I say both! Why limit it? This comforter does live in my home and couldnt be better for a cozy movie on the couch. I've heard of folks who also use it as a comforter in their tent, which is great as well. Western simply makes the BEST down products!
Note of caution: My French bulldog loves it too, and I just have to watch her nails on the fabric. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of, AND its the tradeoff between luxurios cloud like comfort and a bomber piece of gear. Treat her right. :-)
My wife & I use it car camping as an alternative to sleeping separately in bags. It has a silky feeling fabric. Super lightweight. Really warm. We've used it down to 36 degrees with minimal clothing layers. I looked into a regular down comforter for a bed, but you can't find one with higher rated down and light weight fabric. This is the best.
Cloud 9 for sure
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
This blanket is pretty amazing. Light, soft, and warm. What more could you want from a down blanket?! Even though this thing is huge when you lay it out it packs down really small. I have the queen. Plenty of room for two under there. I plan on using this on my bed in winter to cut down on the heating bill and taking it out in the field when cuddling is necessary.
How many inches of loft does the Cloud 9 have? WM are great about publishing this for their sleeping bags, and it helps determine a temperature rating. But I can find nothing anywhere on this piece. Thanks!
Stuart, I am not by my comforter, but from my memory, it's about 3-4" of loft. It's box stitch construction, so you have seems to think about that have no loft, but for a summer or spring comforter, I think it's perfect.
