Sestrals Poncho

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


Sestrals Poncho


A quilt is more versatile than a conventional sleeping bag. A blanket is more versatile than a quilt. But the Astucas 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 schoeller® 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.

Bombproof insulation

Climashield® APEX is the reference in thermal efficiency among synthetic fibers.

  • Highly compressible.
  • Retains its loft after being compressed better than other synthetics.
  • Warmth to weight ratio: 0.024 CLO/(g/m2).
  • Continuous filament construction, 100% polyester.

Clean and dry, naturally

ecorepel® technology provides a very high level of water and dirt repellence, without reducing fabric breathability, in an environmentally sound manner.

  • Water and mud repellent.
  • Ecological: biodegradable and free from fluorocarbons (PFC).
  • Wash permanent and abrasion resistant: finish last more than 30 washing cycles at 40°C.


  • 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.
