Rumpl Puffy Blankets

The puffy blanket is probably a familiar thing for car campers and is now a growing trend with hikers. So what exactly is a puffy blanket and why would you take one hiking?

So here’s the marketing pitch. Rumpl is a synthetic alternative to down and something new in blanket insulation technology. Rumpl’s synthetic fill is 100% post-consumer recycled and the NanoLoft™ insulation is made up of tiny circular clusters of fibre that mimic the properties of down clusters. This traps warmth inside small pockets of air to  preserve heat including in very cold conditions.

The idea of a ‘blanket’ for hiking is growing in support providing more flexibility particularly if you are hiking in variable conditions. Instead of having a range of sleeping bags for particular conditions you can have a lighter weight sleeping bag to which you can add extra warmth with a ‘blanket’ when you need. You can also use a puffy blanket as a standalone. If you are hiking with your partner you can sleep ‘together’ under the one warm cover. And let’s not forget the opportunities you’ll find around the home especially during a movie marathon! The options are numerous ….

The range is extensive and we took a close look at Rumpl’s NanoLoft Puffy Blanket which is super soft and cosy. It is great for keeping you warm during post dinner hiking chats and is also a terrific sleeping bag substitute. It packs into a reasonably compact and equally colourful stuff sack which means you can keep it handy for when you need.

There are lots of uses for Rumpl Puffy Blankets and I will use the NanoLoft on shorter, overnight hikes during the warmer months of the year. In addition our Rumpl Blanket now lives on our couch and has replaced the traditional blankets as a way of keeping us warm on those cold winters nights.

So check them out and see how you can fit them into your hiking kit.
