*At the time of publishing, the price was $160.
Packing water-repellent and sustainably sourced down in a soft yet durable nylon shell, the Rumpl Down Puffy wards off the cold better for its price than the competition, so you can stay warm outside for longer. It’s primed to last through adventures better than many other puffy blankets, too: It survived four rounds in the washing machine without a snag (and dried within an hour), and was notably stain resistant to dirt, dew, and even coffee.
Rumpl Original Puffy Throw
A less comfortable—but still great—option
A slightly heavier and stiffer blanket, but for less money and with more style options.
The Rumpl Original Puffy is enhanced with many of the same smart details that give the Down Puffy its resilience to the elements, like a nylon shell that’s densely knit yet breathable and quick-drying. Its durable water-resistant coating prevents the residue of camping trips from coming home with you. Inside, the Original Puffy depends on synthetic polyester fill for insulation, which adds weight and bulk and makes the blanket stiffer and slightly less warm-feeling. (But it’s also less expensive than its down-stuffed sibling.)
Kelty Bestie Blanket
A thinner, cheaper blanket
This blanket offers fewer durability features and less insulation than our top pick but still wears great.
*At the time of publishing, the price was $30.
The Kelty Bestie Blanket doesn’t pack as much insulation or as many outdoor-oriented features as our top pick. But it still sports a tough-enough shell and has one of the best stitch patterns of any blanket I tested, at a fraction of the cost of the top pick.
