The fourth Rumpl design on the list of Rumpl’s Down Puffy Blanket that slots into the category of a more accessible alternative to their premium Featherlite above. Its Down Puffy Blanket utilizes a lower-quality 600-fill-power insulation, which isn’t as high or compact as Featherlite’s 800-fill model however it will save the user a substantial $150 by just adding 3.2 pounds of weight. It’s also tiny (5 10 in. as opposed to 5 x 8 in. for Featherlite) and features an extra-thick shell with a 30-denier thickness that’s more confident for use in backcountry. Another benefit is the emphasis on sustainability, which includes a 100 percent recycled shell as well as an easily traceable down insulation.
Overall overall, the Rumpl Down Puffy Blanket is fairly balanced for its lightweight and high-end construction, however it’s still expensive at $249. It’s about $120 cheaper it’s worth Kelty Galactic Down is a better choice. Kelty Galactic Down uses the same 550-fill down, but with a slightly lower quality (although this isn’t hydrophobic) and features a thicker 50-denier outer shell that can last longer in outdoor usage. However, you’ll notice some compromises in terms of weight (the Kelty comes in 8.3 ounces. more) and packing size The Galactic Down’s shell and lining fabric are distinctly less luxurious. The trade-offs might make sense for budget-conscious campers seeking to cut costs however, if you are willing to accept the deal more, the Rumpl’s premium finish and remarkable warmth-to-weight ratio are attractive.
