During a normal year, it’d be right about now that we’d begin planning our first weekend camping trip of the season. It’s warm enough to inspire the meteorological optimism needed to bust open the gear bin and swap ski jackets for sleeping bags. Of course, this time is also great for staying in and getting warm by the fire. Leave it to Patagonia to get us excited about both with a piece of gear that’s 100 percent both adventure- and stay-at-home-friendly: the Macro Puff Quilt. And, right now, it's 40 percent off.
Through our extensive testing of synthetic puffy jackets, we determined that Patagonia’s Macro Puff is the best in overall warmth, weight and fit. That same jacket (and all its subsequent styling and tech) were used to craft a big, plush blanket. The Macro Puff Quilt is identical to its namesake jacket in all but shape — it has the same water-resistant, windproof nylon ripstop shell and the same super-warm, down-mimicking PlumaFill insulation. It also adds webbing loops at the corners for hanging it or lashing it to a sleeping pad.
All of these features coalesce to make a quilt that’s light enough at 27.4 ounces (exactly double the weight of the Macro Puff Jacket) to bring camping. But at 83 x 69 inches, it’s also extensive enough to sling over a queen-sized bed or engulf us as we slouch on the couch, and that’s perfect for the days when we long for the feeling of camping but know it’ll have to wait. Usually, the Macro Puff Quilt clocks in at $249 — but during Patagonia's winter sale, it's down to $149. But hurry, as the sale ends after March 8.
