Ultralight, super-packable down quilt; 26° F
The Western Mountaineering AstraLite is a super-lightweight down quilt rated to 26° F. Perfect for shoulder-season backpacking or traveling, this quilt packs down ultra-small and has elastic cords to couple the pad to most sleeping pads (pad sold separately). Now updated with more breathable 12D fabric.
The AstraLite is designed with a set of adjustable and removable pad straps that are compatible with any backpacking sleeping pad. When no gram can go unaccounted for, the straps can also be removed. Other features include a sewn-through footbox and an insulated draft yoke with elastic closure for maximum heat retention.
Because the AstraLite is hoodless, it is important to pack adequate head insulation. AstraLite users should consider bringing a hooded puffy along if temperatures are likely to dip below freezing.
This quilt is designed to be used with an insulated sleeping pad. If your sleeping pad is uninsulated or poorly insulated, this quilt will sleep much colder than intended. Make sure to check the R-value of your pad to ensure it is adequate for 3-season use.
The AstraLite come in two lengths; the 5’8″ version is design for people at or below 6’0″ tall and the 6’4″ version is design for people between 6’0″ and 6’6″.
Like all of Western Mountaineering's quilts and sleeping bags, the AstraLite is made by hand in San Jose, California. Their down is sourced from free-range mother geese who are never live-plucked or force-fed.
