The Prometheus Design Werx A.G. Wilderness Quilt for Rooftop Tents

Want to snuggle with your significant other, your dog, or maybe just get under something cozy after a long day? Prometheus Design Werx has just introduced their A.G. Wilderness Quilt, a premium goose-down comforter you can use in your two-person tent, rooftop rig, or for couch-potatoing.

The quilt is like your down comforter at home but compresses into the size of a one-person sleeping bag. The classic style and shape are designed from mountaineering-grade materials, which means it’s compact and lightweight. The quilt is made from RDS-certified, 800-fill-power goose down and a 20D mini-ripstop nylon shell. The DWR finish means the quilt will stay dry as well. Nothing’s worse (or more smelly) than wet down.

The quilt is available in olive green with charcoal gray trim and the super cool part is the flip side is flame orange—a stand-out color for photos and a smart addition to any wilderness survival and rescue gear.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“One of the perks of car camping or ‘overlanding’ is the ability to bring more creature comforts when spending time outdoors. Many of today’s overlanders use RTT or ‘rooftop tents’ which have foam mattresses and room to stretch out when sleeping. Yes, while sleeping bags will work fine in an RTT, you don’t get to take full advantage of the extra room. Homestyle quilts are typically made with a cotton shell which adds bulk and weight to any camp load out and will wet out in damp outdoor conditions. We took the ‘best of several worlds’ and used premium, RDS-certified, 800-fill-power goose down and a 20D mini-ripstop nylon shell with DWR to construct our quilt, just like high-grade sleeping bags used for backpacking and mountaineering; but made it in a traditional rectangular quilt shape, perfectly suited for RTT ‘beds.’ You’ll appreciate the reduced travel weight and easy packability either stowed in your overlanding rig or backpack. Our modified ‘XL Full’ size is cut to work perfectly with 2-person RTTs and cut longer so you can tuck the foot end under your mattress/pad to keep the drafts out, and when the chill sets in at 0100, you can pull it over your head.”

Prometheus Design Werx is no stranger to designing materials to keep us warm. Only one question remains: what does the A.G. stand for? All Goose? All Good?

In my opinion, it’s Absolutely Gorgeous.
