Turtle Top Quilt
Lead time: up to 3 weeks; please take this into account when you provide your shipping address!
We have listed our "standard" small, medium and large sizes. However, we can custom size any quilt. Order the quilt thickness and width that you need (S: 28" M: 34" L: 40") and if your dog's back is a couple inches shorter or longer than the "collar to base of tail" length, please leave your custom measurement in the "order notes" at the very bottom of the order form. If the neck is larger than listed, please let me know. If you have a small dog with a floor to spine height of less than 17", please order a small and email Marie so we can figure out the quilt width.
The lightest and warmest dog sleep solution! Made in USA with responsibly sourced premium down. Attaches to your dog with an integral PJ harness so the quilt stays with your dog when they get up and spin in the middle of the night. *Scroll to the bottom of this page for complete product specs.
***Zero-Waste Campaign: there's a 50% chance that your quilt will be piece constructed from off cuts that we save instead of throwing away. We are mindful of keeping fabric out of the land-fill. If we piece-work your quilt, it will have one to two seams on the surface, where we pieced together off-cuts to create the overall blank. This does not at all effect the durability. (zoom in on product photos to see some examples)

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. The under-harness consists of a Y yoke that goes around the neck, with 2 wings that wrap against the chest. The elastic strap on one wing feeds through the stem of the Y and clips to the buckle on the other wing. The under-harness was designed with comfort and minimal material/hardware weight in mind. (The quilt does NOT attach to the Trekking Harness. The Turtle Topquilt is a stand alone piece. We do not recommend your dog sleep overnight wearing a hiking harness (it's just not that comfortable for them).)
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 tiny 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!
