Topquilt is not other than an ultralight version of a sleeping bag. Practically it is a blanket with a closed footbag. Each part is missing that the product can still be safely used without. It means a great advantage during backpacking for example, where the weight and size of the equipment really matters. When using a topquilt in hammocks, there is no solution that is more comfortable or more practical. The main difference from a sleeping bag is the cut-back part and the lack of a hood. Sleeping on the ground, we press the fill of the sleeping bag on the areas where our bodies are contacted with the sleeping pad. Topquilts lack this part, as it would mean useless extra weight due to the underutilisation of the fill.
Instead of a hood, a draft collar and a rubber cord helps isolating the blanket around the neck, thus preventing heat loss. We can protect ourselves from the cold using beanies, a scarf and balaclava.
Altogether this product is up to 30% lighter than a sleeping bag with the same specifications.
When using it along with a sleeping pad, we can fix the product with the help of rubber cords and buckles, while we can still comfortably turn around under it.
KHIBU MAGMA TOPQUILT is a down filled blanket with a closed end that ensures proper insulation in every season.
Uniquely tailored baffle box chambers allow maximum expansion of the down filling.
The height of this part filled with down (LOFT) determines the comfort level of the quilt.
15 pcs baffle box chambers, differential cut and a footbag without thermal bridge ensure proper insulation. The part around the neck can be insulated with a huge draft collar, which can be closed with a rubber cord.
Flat clasps can be found on the side of the quilt, with their pair found on the attached rubber strap, we can fix the product comfortably and safely to a sleeping pad. This way, it can be used on the ground and in also in a hammock.
Baffles: Outer and inner material is not sewn on the sides of the cells, instead, they are connected by a baffle line with a set width. This technique prevents the formation of thermal bridges, where insulation might cease.
Differential cut: Apart from baffles, we can help the dawn fill space by providing more space. We can achieve this by tailoring the outer material larger than the inner, this way the filled area (LOFT) won’t be pressed even under the impact of stretch.
Edge Tension System (ETS): A channel system can be found on each edges of the quilt. Inside the channels, there’s an elastic band which can be adjusted precisely. With this solution, we can pull tight the edges of the quilt resulting better insulation and higher comfort level. This system blocks the cold drafts caused by moving around in the quilt and keeps the warm air inside.
The sizes of the BASIC Magma Topquilt (190×140/100) are given. This size can be used up to 180-185 cm body height. Custom size orders are possible, since we have different physical characteristics, and by customizing the size we can make quilts much lighter and effective.
Materials used for the frame are ultra lightweight, anti-tear 10D RIPSTOP nylon.
Calandered on the inside, the material is down- and windproof, while maintaining proper air flow. Water repellent material, thanks to the DWR (durable water repellent) finish.
Magma Topquilts are filled with premium quality goose down. Quilts are made using down with 750CUIN and 850CUIN fill power. CUIN (cubic inch/oz) shows how many cubic inches of space one oz of down occupies. The larger the number, the less down we need to reach the same values.

DEFINITION OF COMFORT RATING:
The warmth of a quilt depends on several factors (design and form of cells, fill power, etc.), but can easily be defined by ‘LOFT’, the height of the fill inside the cell. Still, these are approximate values, since everyone has different metabolism. So, it is not carved in stone that the EN13537 standard is also a guideline.
Comfort limits of quilts made by us:
|COMFORT RATE / LOFT||0℃/ 50mm||-3℃/ 70mm||-8℃/ 80mm||-15℃/ 110mm|
|FILL POWER (CUIN)||750||850||750||850||750||850||750||850|
|FILL WEIGHT (g)||350||200||450||350||650||450||800||550|
|TOTAL WEIGHT (g)||600||450||700||600||900||700||1050||800|
The expected total weight can vary because of the different materials used.
In case of a custom order, the difference can be +- 5-8%.
