Rumpl Puffy Blanket review: our favorite cold-weather camping accessory Camping Gear

Rumpl Puffy Blanket review

Lightweight, weather resistant, and incredibly cozy, the Rumpl Puffy Blanket is one of our favorite pieces of gear for chilly nights around the campfire and cool-weather camping adventures.

There’s nothing better than wrapping up under a soft, warm, cozy blanket on a cold morning at camp or around a chilly backyard bonfire. We’ve loved using our Rumpl Puffy Blanket on a bunch of chilly camping trips, including Linville Gorge in North Carolina and Cloudland Canyon State Park, where daytime temps peaked in the low 60’s and brisk nights dipped into the 30’s. Our Rumpl made for comfy relaxing around the campfire after the sun went down and the chill rolled in. And it made the perfect spot to stretch out in the midday sunshine and take in the wide open mountain vistas.

Our Rumpl Puffy Blanket review: the perfect way to cozy up at the campsite on chilly mornings

Our campsite-tested Rumpl review

The Puffy Blanket combines the technical performance of a high-quality sleeping with the comfort and warmth of a down blanket. It’s perfect for indoor or outdoor use: the weather-resistant 20D nylon shell resists light drizzle, stains, and debris like dog hair, dirt, and campfire smoke.

It’s available in three sizes: a throw, 1-person, and 2-person, with options for everyone from kids and singles to a couple who wants to cuddle on the couch. Our generously-sized 1-person Rumpl provides plenty of warmth for a six-foot-tall person, with plenty left over for wrapping. We’ve used our blanket on top of a sleeping bag while camping for extra insulation on chilly nights. And we’ve used it at home as a throw for comfy movie nights and rainy-weekend Netflix binges. Where ever we’ve used it, we’ve been ultra-impressed with its lofty, snuggly comfort.

The silky nylon exterior creates a durable shell that can stand up to campsite wear-and-tear and scuffs. Inside, Rumpl offers two insulation options: 3D Hollow Fiber Synthetic, or 600-fill DWR-treated down. Both options are machine washable for easy care and provide plenty of warmth.

The Puffy Blanket is lightweight and packs easily into its stuff sack. Our 1-person synthetic-fill blanket weighs 3.1 lbs and packs down to a size of 7.5″ x 16”. (The down-filled 1-person weighs 1.4 lbs and compresses down to an even more impressive 7″ x 7”,) It’s super easy to throw into our camp duffle or a backpack, and take it just about anywhere, from a remote campsite to a local park.

Wide wave-pattern baffles keep the blanket’s insulation in place and give it a stylish topo-like look. And with a ton of great color options, be warned: it’s tough to choose a favorite.

Rumpl Puffy Blanket review wrap-up

Our Rumpl has become our go-to for chilly camping adventures and cozy nights on the couch. The lightweight, ultra-soft, ultra-comfy blanket keeps us toasty warm when the temperatures plummet. And the blanket’s weather-resistant DWR coating keeps us dry when we’re lounging on damp grass or weathering a light drizzle at the campsite. It’s perfect for just about anywhere!
