Szu-Ping Leewrote a review of Brooks-Range Cloak 15 Sleeping Blanket on October 1, 2017
Familiarity: I've used it several times
I have a bit of a fetish when it comes to sleeping bags, and bought this quilt because it was from a quality company and on sale for a deep discount. My thought was to use this quilt to supplant our WM Megalites (32 degree) when doing shoulder season backpacking in 15-20 degree weather. This quilt also doubles as my daily comforter at home. It will serve these 2 purposes I think. However, I have to caution anyone who thinks this is a legit 15 degree sleeper all of its own. First, it is indeed very light, well-made with quality materials. As the other reviewer mentioned, it is incredibly soft. But it is also very short (74 inches) and narrow (40 inches at the shoulder). The loft is more comparable to a 30 degree bag, not 15. Therefore, it is unlikely to provide adequate coverage or warmth in true sub-freezing temperatures unless you are 1) no taller than 5 feet, 2) not a side-sleeper and not moving much when you sleep, and 3) a super warm sleeper with sleeping head gear. I read somewhere that the number "15" in its name actually refers to the amount of fill in ounces, not its temperature rating.
