***Zero-Waste Campaign: Most of our inventory quilts this season are piece-worked from off cuts that we've saved over the years. We are mindful of keeping fabric out of the land-fill. If the listing says "**Piece work," then your quilt will have a few seams on the surface, where we pieced together off-cuts to create the overall blank. (zoom in on product photos)
Color Scheme: "Turtle"- Pea Green on top with Dark Olive underneath.
Shoulder season PJ harness is Moss Green (unless otherwise noted)
Winter season PJ harness is Turtle Skin

800 fillpower 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. (The quilt's primary design function is as a sleeping quilt: the clips help reduce the size of a quilt, but the quilt is not a form-fitting jacket.) Comes with stuff sack. Use of a sleeping pad (like a z-rest) is recommended to insulate your dog from the ground in cold weather. A z-rest is required in below-freezing temps.
1.5" thick is good for down to 30 degree tent camping for a short-hair. The Shoulder Season quilt is sewn with a stitch-thru grid pattern.
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. Use a front-loader (make sure the washer DOES'NT have a center agitator). 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!
