Patagonia’s Puffy Jacket has long been one of the finest options in cold weather outerwear garments with its excellent combination of warmth, weight, and style. It’s gotten so much love, in fact, that the outfit has used the same material in other stuff like their sweet-looking winter hat. This time around, you can wrap yourself in the same puffy material during sleep with the Patagonia Macro Puff Quilt.
Made using the same material as the outfit’s Macro Puff Hoody, the blanket allows you to curl up beneath a quilted shell that’s proven its worth in the cold, harsh environment of the outdoors during winter. Whether you want a blanket you can carry while camping, a quilt you can curl with while watching TV on the couch, or a queen-size bedding you can lay over your bed, this thing should do all that and more.
The Patagonia Macro Puff Quilt is made from a 10-denier ripstop nylon shell that’s water-resistant and windproof, making it viable for use in the outdoors, even in the most inclement weather. It’s lightweight, too, leaving the whole blanket weighing just 27.4 ounces (1.7 pounds), allowing you to roll it up for taking to the trails without adding a lot of heft to your pack. A diagonally-patterned quilting construction gives it a unique aesthetic that makes it a whole lot easier on the eyes, all while stabilizing the integrated insulation with minimal stitching.
For insulation, by the way, it uses the same 135-gram Plumafill material as used in the outfit’s jackets, so this deliver the same warmth their outerwear garments are known for. Instead of down, though, Plumafill is a continuous synthetic insulation material that pairs the warmth and pliability of the natural insulation, while reinforcing it with the ability to stay warm even when wet. That’s right, even a wet night under the stars won’t leave you freezing in the tent.
The Patagonia Macro Puff Quilt measures 83 x 69 inches, which puts it just slightly bigger than a queen-size mattress, making it big enough to accommodate a couple of people underneath, without being too large for someone who’s sleeping alone and cried themselves to sleep. Hey, we have those lonely nights, too. They also threw in webbing loops at all four corners, giving you an easy way to hang the quilt or lash it down to your mattress, in case you want to use it as a cover bedding. It comes with a stuff sack, so you can pack it down in its own case during transport or storage.
Is this warmer than your favorite blanket? We don’t know. Given the good word we’ve seen about jacket version of this material, though, we imagine it does a good job on the warming front. It’s lightweight, though, so don’t expect it to bring the same comfort as that weighted blanket you use to drown all your sorrows at night. Thankfully, you can still drink alcohol for that before you hit the bunk.
The Patagonia Macro Puff Quilt is available in three colors, priced at $249.
