Rumpl NanoLoft Puffy Blanket ($179)




1 lb. 12.8 oz.



What we like:

NanoLoft insulation does a nice impression of down’s warmth and compressibility.

What we don’t:

Hard to justify the price jump over Rumpl’s Original Puffy above.

Synthetic insulation isn’t as good as the weight-to-heat ratio or warmth ability to pack down, however some brands come pretty close. NanoLoft is one of the best and Rumpl uses a significant amount of the stuff in their name-brand NanoLoft Puffy Blanket. When stacked against the less-than-high-quality synthetic material used in the Original Puffy above, the higher-end NanoLoft variant is significantly more loftier and thicker, which produces the same warmth, but at less weight (by approximately 4 8 oz.) and a significantly smaller size of the packed (6 14 inches. and compared to. seven x sixteen in. for and the Original Puffy). For those who are concerned about weight and space campers who do not need to shell out the money on a high-end down-sized model Rumpl NanoLoft is a good choice. Rumpl NanoLoft is an affordable alternative that has the top spot in weather-proofing.

But, the NanoLoft’s small advantages in terms of weight and portability aren’t worth the cost to most campers. The Original Puffy above offers similar overall performance but with small differences in weight and bulk. The NanoLoft does not come with any extra options. As with its Original model, it comes with the useful Cape Clip for securing the blanket to your shoulders and corner loops to attach them to your ground and a decently durable 30 denier shell. However, the NanoLoft insulation provides a excellent impression of down for significantly cheaper than their down-insulated Featherlite above, which should suffice for the majority of buyers (although the Featherlite has the advantage in weight, at 1 2 lbs. even).
