We keep several Rumpl blankets in our van at all times, and here’s why: They’re ultralight, soft, comfy, and they pack down really small. In fact, once in their stuff sacks, they even make a fine pillow.
But the real reason we keep any blanket around is to stay warm, and they work fine for that, too. Rumpl offers both synthetic fill and down fill options, but all are thin and light. Meaning, this isn’t what you’d want for a deep winter outdoor overnighter. But for wrapping up around the campfire, snuggling in the bed, or just taking the chill off at a tailgate, they’re kinda perfect.
They offer Junior, Single and Double sizes, but we’d say just go with the Single at a minimum…the Junior is pretty small. Singles come with a small clip that let you wear it as a cape, keeping hands free for a bevvie or stoking the fire. All are DWR treated and have small corner loops so you can stake them down as ground cover, too, making them a great hiking companion as well.
They come in tons of solids and patterns, but our favorites are the National Parks series and the rainbow fade (above).
Even more colorful are their Artist Division blankets. They’ve done numerous artist collaborations over the years, with folks like Aaron Draplin (above, left) and Amber Share’s @subparparks series (above, right).
They offer four different fills, ranging from standard synthetic fill to a more packable NanoLoft fill, and standard (but sustainable) down features to Featherlite down that’s also more packable…and is the lightest at just 1lb for a 1-person blanket. Prices range from $99 to $399, depending on size and fill. They also make things like mini Rumpl beer blankets (aka puffy coozies), ground mats, dog beds, ponchos, and more.
