Why We Like The Vela Double Quilt

Therm-a-Rest's Vela Double Quilt packs smaller than most sleeping bags and has enough warmth for two backpackers or campers. Its down insulation keeps things as light as can be while still providing a 20F temperature rating, and Therm-a-Rest treated the insulation with Nikwax to retain its lofty warmth in wetter climates.

Not as warm as it says

The down spreads out weird and it isn't comfortable below 40 degrees.

Light and fluffy

I haven't had it long enough to use it to it's fullest but it's an astounding piece of gear. I would definitely buy it again.

Lightweight and warm

I'm a fan of the Vela Double 20F quilt. We used it for a weekend backpacking trip in the high Sierra at the end of September (mid 30s, low 40s F) and were perfectly warm and not too hot. It's wider than I would like (because the extra width makes it more bulky to pack), but the extra space allows for movement and side sleeping. It's awesome how it attaches to the Therm-a-rest Synergy Coupler sheet (although that material is not the most pleasant to sleep on), and the elasticized foot box helps it stay in place on the sleeping pad. I'm looking forward to testing it in colder weather and glad I opted for the 20F over the 32F.

I love the quilt, but it's not rated properly.

I love this, but it's not rated properly. The bag is well designed with features such as the foot bag and pocket, well built, is light, packs small, and feels nice next to skin. It also allows you to snuggle up with your partner as the obvious selling feature. That being said, it's not accurately rated. I'll admit that I'm a cold sleeper, but the warmth provided from this compares to other zero or +2 bags. For me and my partner the comfort rating feels closer to +5 to +10, and a survival rating could be closer to 0 degrees. Overall this is a great summer and light shoulder season bag, but not much more.

Wie Zuhause im Bett.....

Wir nutzen diesen Duo Quilt zusammen mit einer EXPED Synmat Duo. Bisher bis ca. -2°C absolut kuschelig! Vorraussetzung ist natürlich eine entsprechende Isolation nach unten (ausreichende Isomatte!!) Dann das Schlafgefühl wie im Doppeltbett! Und das ganze mit guten 600g Schlafsack pro Person!! Wer gerne beieinander schläft... zugreifen!

Love it (more of a 35 degree bag)

Love the quilt have maybe 15-20 nights in it. Great for camping with a partner and saving weight. I would not take the bag below freezing without adding a thin sleeping bag with it. It's too drafty for cold temperatures. Could be improved with more fill, as is the fill goes to the sides during sleeping and it needs to be fluffed before use. Totally manageable cons and overall would recommend this as a more comfortable and lightweight option for couples in temperatures down to about 35 degrees.

Warm, spacious, comfy

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Height:
6' 5"

Man, this thing pairs super well with my mattress (megamat duo 10) for myself and my partner to sleep on. It is very warm when we sleep in my truck bed covered with a topper, and ultra comfy. The foot baffles are great for me as they keep my toes toasty all night. I haven't tried stuffing the stuff sack with it and packing it for a trip yet. I bet it will pack pretty large and not be feasible for backpacking. For myself I see it as perfect for car/truck/camper camping, and possibly international travel with a partner as a backup blanket for any cold place you might stay. Overall recommend this highly for those purposes as two bodies of warmth is better than one any day!
