The Corus HD Quilt is Thermarest's most technical down quilt. It's extremely lightweight, warm, compressible and comfortable. Built for the backcountry travel.
The ultralight Corus HD Quilt offers unprecedented comfort wherever you use it. It's ideal for minimalist backcountry travel from spring through early fall, and versatile enough for hut-to-hut traverses and car camping in any season. Made with high loft, packable Nikwax Hydrophobic Down and ThermaCapture seams for retaining heat and excellent temperature regulation, the Corus offers a surprisingly liberating feeling of unrestricted movement throughout the night. It will leave you wondering how you got along without one.
Nikwax Hydrophobic Down
Used in all Therm-a-Rest 3 and 4-season sleeping bags. Nikwax Hydrophobic Down absorbs 40% less moisture than untreated down. This keeps you warmer over a greater range of conditions, and allows it to dry and restore performance faster. And since all water-resistant down treatments wash out over time, Nikwax Hydrophobic Down is specially formulated to be easily retreated at home using Nikwax DownWash and DownProof, ensuring the long-term water-resistance performance of your bag.
In addition, unlike other treated down, Nikwax® Hydrophobic Down is a water-based formula that’s Flourocarbon-free (a.k.a. PFO’s, PFOA’s or PFC’s) and safe for you and the environment. We found this a particularly compelling reason to go with Nikwax, as questions are increasingly raised about the long-term effects of these chemicals and their persistence in our bodies and the environment.
Applied to the backside of the inner lining material of our sleeping bags, ThermaCapture not only boosts warmth without the added weight or bulk of additional fill material, creating a lighter overall bag, but it also lets you warm-up faster – a real plus on a cold night
The Corus HD is ideal for those seeking ultralight performance and amazing comfort without a weight penalty. It delivers the most warmth per gram of any Therm-a-Rest quilt or blanket and features 650 fill of Nikwax Hydrophobic down which vastly improves its performance in damp conditions.
The elasticized footbox snaps round the bottom end of your sleeping mat keeping your feet warm and the quilt in place. It also includes snap loops so it can easily be connected to a Thermarest mattress, quilt blanket or sheet allowing you to build a your own sleep system. If your after a little bit of luxury on your next adventure then this quilt would be ideal.
The Corus Quilt has replaced Thermarest's Auriga Quilt. They both have very similar features with a small difference in fill power. As they are very similar, we have attached a few product reviews of the Auriga Quilt. See below.
