Sestrals Poncho

More comfortable than a sleeping bag.
More cool than a quilt.

Overview

A quilt is more versatile than a conventional sleeping bag. A blanket is more versatile than a quilt. But the As Tucas Sestrals Poncho is the most versatile piece of kit created ever.

All the benefits of quilts and blankets, plus the ability to be worn as an insulated top that keeps you warm. A real weight saver!

As smooth & light as silk.

The new schoeller®-ftc fabric sets a new standard in ultralight fabrics. It's not only highly windproof and downproof, but it's also amazingly soft to the skin.

Details

  • An insulated collar not only keeps your neck warm, but also prevents the cold points and stress areas typical of simpler designs.
  • Longer than traditional quilts. Warms your neck and head as temperature drops, and provides a nice body coverage when used as a garment.
  • Wider than traditional quilts. Move and roll without creating cold drafts. Perfect for side sleepers!
  • Can be worn in "warm" or "ventilated" configuration.
  • Openable footbox. 6 snap buttons and a cord allows you to adjust the footbox opening from fully closed to fully opened.
  • Redesigned footbox closure. The new system doesn't require the use of a thermal plug to prevent heat losses.
  • Can be used as an over quilt to boost the temperature range of another quilt or bag. In this case, we recommend the wide option.
  • Minimalist bottom retention system: 2 loops with plastic snap buttons. Designed to attach two quilts together when used as an over quilt.
  • Big 100% cotton storage sack included.
