I was very excited to about this 2 person sized blanket. I have the similar REI Co-op version in the throw size and love it! The two bands have very similar fabric and warmth. The material of these blankets is unbeatable for many reasons. Pet hair, grass, and sand roll right off. Even water slips just bead off. I get so much use out of the throw size that I thought the larger 2 person size would be worth the investment. However, I was so disappointed to open up the package of mine new Rumple to find a handful of the quilted threads sections had snags and loose threads and areas where the stitching skipped and then re-tracked. For $300 the lack of quality control was shocking to me. I will try an exchange in hopes this was one bad lemon.
The throw is a good size to cover your body. Very light weight. Hardly any down. Not very warm. Waaay over priced.
This blanket is great, versatile, cosy. The only down side (pun intended) for me personally is the price - I hope the blanket will last me a long time to make it worthwhile.
My husband bought this for me for mornings in the ground blind/tree stand. I do some of my best reading while I'm "hunting" :). BUT I hate being cold. Hate it, hate it, hate it. This Rumpl has saved the day on many occasions. It's lightweight, compressible, and WARM. I can sit on it to insulate my bottom from the metal of the tree stand, drape it over my shoulders like a cape, or completely consume myself in it for those really cold mornings. It's also perfect for early spring/late fall afternoons in our hammock. I LOVE napping in the hammock, but again, hate being cold. The Rumpl also doubles as a sleeping bag substitute when we're truck camping with just sleeping pads. An all-around versatile, well-made product!
The blanket felt nice but I couldn't get past the yellow trim. I wish I could see it in the picture before I ordered. I like all but the color. Also, it is kind of loud fabric.
First thought, the blanket is expensive. Tried it one night at home and it was warm enough at about 60 degrees. It is very light and pretty slippery. Hope to use it with a bag liner or thin sleeping bag this spring/summer to cut down on packing bulk.
Warm, fluffy, downy... I had a dream someone tried to steal it, and I woke up shaking till I realized I was still cocooned in its amazing warmth. Buy it... It's worth the price. Compresses great and goes anywhere. Stays clean and keeps you cozy.
Great purchase. Whole family loves it and fights over who gets it.
