Climashield APEX - 5 oz/sq yd
Thanks for your review Garrett! If you have any questions about making with the APEX insulation let us know, we're here to help!
I made a very basic top quilt out of Climashield 5oz with 0.66 membrane 10 taffeta on one side and 1.0oz HyperD on the other. It's 72" x 43" no zippers, snaps, etc, I made a mini quilt (trapezoid) 32" x 17" and sewed it in for a foot box. Total weight is 17.9oz! I used it last night for the first time, the low was 45°, I slept in a pair of cotton blend thermals and was perfectly toasty on top. Next project will be a similar underquilt because my back was cold in the one I have. The climashield performed very well and I will definitely use it again.
That sounds like an awesome project Russell! We're glad you slept cozy in your new custom made top quilt! We'd love to see photos, here is a link if you'd like to share with us! https://forms.gle/Mc6hnqtMhkFeg4uE9
Thanks for your store. Great product, super quality! I liked the work of the support specialists. There were some problems with delivery, the support specialist helped to solve everything in the best possible way!
I will recommend it to my friends.

Great product, easy to work with. Did not pack as small as I wanted, but it worked for my purposes. Tested it at 36 degrees and slept fairly comfortably.
Thanks for the review Rebecca! We're glad you found it easy to work with. Unfortunately synthetic insulation such as Climashield doesn't pack down as much as natural down. But is more cost effective and environmentally friendly! We'd love to see photos of your project, be sure to tag us on social media!
I used 5oz Climashield for a sleeping quilt and have used it in 25°F and 30°F weather comfortably(I am a warm sleeper). It doesn’t pack down as small as I wanted but I made a fairly large quilt to accommodate my height.
It is easy to sew with. Using tissue paper prevented the insulation from getting caught in the feed. Will buy again if I need extra warmth for spring/fall. I will be making another MYOG quilt geared toward with lighter insulation to save weight and size in the summer.
Thanks for your review and the helpful sewing tip Joseph! We're glad this 5 oz kept you cozy! We would love to see photos of your quilt. Here is a link if you'd like to share https://forms.gle/BU8qTWDWJfCtE8By8
