Been browsing Aliexpress, as you do, and bumped into a duck down quilt branded Ice Flame.
Actually looks well made from the pictures. difficult to tell but does look sewn through?
They say baffled apart from the side one.
Looks sewn thru to me. Temp rating seems limited by 700fp(US?) down. Not a bad price though!
Cheap BUT duck down does lose its loft far quicker than goose down, possibly a good buy for someone wanting to try out quilt sleeping before shelling out £££'s on a higher spec quilt.
There are new quilts from Ice Flame available, especially very nice 3 season, baffle construction in the middle & sewn thru on side/underside. It looks competitive for standard/open footbox Cumulus quilt. In general Ice Flame seams very quality & not overbuilt stuff ex. nice down balaclava 42g, down pants. I'll wait for 250 quilt option..
Down Filling Weight:360g
Total Weight:approx 554g
Filling Down:90% white goose down
Shell Material:7D nylon
Lining Material:10D nylon
Comfotable Temperature:0 ℃ to 5 ℃/41 ℉to 59 ℉
Class Standard:QB/T 1195-2012
Interesting though at £160 I think I'll give it a miss.
Saving for new backpack fluffkitten ?
Apropos boxed main baffles, there is alot of info about quality in Feedback section (fluffkitten quilt post #1)
I'm a cheapskate.
Just ordered the orange one, worth a punt at the price. I don't own a top quilt, only a bottom one for my never used hammocks.
Turned up this morning, only took 10 days. Seems decent enough, will find out how warm it is next week as out for 3 nights and report back with pics.
Bit of a look at the duck down version, in Spanish but with English sub-titles.
That's what I got. Waiting for the straps though, think it needs them to work properly. Used it over a green aegismax for 4 nights and was fine.
I currently use an Aegismax M2 and if this is just as warm I might have to consider it as it is lighter. Pity the goose down quilt is about twice the price.
Think the temperature rating is correct as he says in the video, but I sleep cold nowadays as now 23kgs lighter since I stopped drinking alcohol. My body is turning into a road map of veins lol. Was chilly at 7 degrees.
Ta, I hadn't seen this one. I reckon for what he does he is one of the best reviewers. Senor Melon el rey 3FUL- spiffy walking sandals too. If it wasnt 20D fabric it would be far lighter and great for summer down to about 7 I reckon. That pad attachment looks really effective also in deflecting draughts. Better than the usual system seen. Just a wee bit too bulky and heavy at the moment and yes the goose one is just that bit too expensive.
It doesn't come with the attachment straps, wish I had ordered them first time round. Waiting on them now. I agree 7c summer, it will compress smaller than the bag in the video no problem.
I followed it when it came out and it looks like a super attachment system. Rotten draughts forced me to sell my first EE quilt. Btw the massdrop quilt could be chopped down to about 480 grams I reckon but it doesnt have the great ICE FLAME strap set up. Can't win!
Another video on it. This one American. Interesting to see that in its stuff sack the quilt weighed 23.2oz/660g.
Will weigh mine when I get back to civilisation, seems it is only a matter of time until you own one @fluffkitten
That is quite possible.
Though given some of the reviews on Ali and since I'm tall these quilts may be a little short for me.
I'm 5 10 and it's fine, I'll do a selfie AND weigh it tomorrow.
@fluffkitten - Okay bag weighs 15g. 2x straps (optional extra) 13g and quilt 667 in supplied bag.
My head is under my hand in pic and as I said I'm 5'10 ish. 177cm last time doctor checked
Neat, looks like my longish 181cm body would fit in the quilt.
I sent a link to his thread to the guy who makes the quilts as I am on a forum with him, here in China.
