The cozy two-person quilt is designed to give you and your camp companion the ultimate warmth and comfort with high loft 650-fill Nikwax Hydrophobic Down™, full-perimeter side baffles to protect from drafts, an elasticized, insulated footbox to add warmth and keep your quilt in place, and perimeter snap loops designed to mate with another Therm-a-Rest quilt, blanket or sheet. Switch to the Vela for your comfy two-person backpacking adventures and enjoy the freedom to move and easily regulate your temperature as you like, all night long. Stuff sack and storage sack included.

Our Verdict

Therm-a-Rest's 2020 Vela 20 Double Down Quilt offers some serious luxury and warmth for a doule quilt and features 650 fill of Nikwax Hydrophobic down which vastly improves it's performance in damp conditions while allowing a an impressive -6°C Comfort Limit. The main feature of this quilt is the redesigned box baffle construction which is usually reserved for the impressive box wall construction for the baffles is something you only get on top quality down products as this technical aspect allows down to loft much more effectively while also reducing heat loss through cold spots along stitch lines.

The Vela includes snap loops so it can easily be connected to a Thermarest mattress or sheet allowing you to build a your own sleep system. The footbox also encompasses the ends of your sleeping mats giving you a more secure blanket. If you're after a little bit of luxury on your next adventure then this quilt would be ideal.
