Turtle Top Quilt, Winter
The lightest and warmest dog sleep solution! Made in USA with responsibly sourced premium 800 fill-power down. The Winter TQ is constructed with baffles running the length of the quilt. This is how winter quilts/bags for humans are made- with thickness throughout the quilt (verses the stitch-through construction of the Shoulder Season Quilt). Scroll to the bottom of this page for complete product specs.
Sizing: Length is custom based on your dog's measurements. Quilts are sized to give a nice draped-coverage when your dog is curled in a ball and length matches nose to taillength while standing for a nice full-coverage jacket-wear.
Size small (30" wide) is for dogs under 40lb with a chest measurement 25" and less.
Size medium (36" wide) is for dogs 40-70lbs with chest measurement 26-31"
Large (41" wide) is for dogs with a chest measurement 32" and up.
Color Scheme: "Turtle"- Pea Green on top with Dark Olive underneath. (please note, we are not making the emerald green color that you see the dog in the snow wearing. Updates colors are the same scheme as you see on the Shoulder Season Quilt listing)
Turtle Top Quilt, Winter Season 3" Product Specs:
Size Medium weighs 10oz with stuff sack
800 fill-power RDS water-resistant down quilt attaches to your dog with an integral under-harness made from breathable-stretch fabric. Shell fabric is 20 denier DWR treated downproof ripstop nylon. There are tiny buckles to clip up the quilt into a jacket configuration. Comes with stuff sack. Use of a sleeping pad (like a z-rest) is also required to insulate your dog from the ground in below-freezing temperatures.
This 3 inch thick baffled quilt is great for tent camping with a short-haired dog in below freezing temperatures. The baffles create dimension throughout the width of the quilt so that there are no cold-spots. In other words, the quilt has dimensional loft throughout, making The Turtle TQ the only below-freezing sleep solution on the market made specifically for dogs.
Please note that the intended use of this product is for wearing in the tent at night or as a jacket when above tree-line. Some customers do use the quilt as a jacket while hiking but extra care should be taken to prevent brush-snags. The goal of this product is to make the lightest, warmest dog sleep solution and materials are not intended for harsh off-leash wear.
Despite popular belief, down is a highly washable material! Seasonal washing will restore the loft (warmth) of your down gear. Just wash with a small amount of detergent or down-soap, do a double rinse cycle, and dry on low for as long as it takes to fully dry, then store in a cotton pillowcase. Skip the tennis balls in the dryer- this product is small enough, you don't need them!
