Savvy campers know that sleeping bags aren’t the only way to bed down in a tent at night. Blankets and quilts, built like technical sleep systems with the same baffled construction and down or synthetic filling, are gaining popularity at campsites. Not just those featured on popular Instagram feeds, either – hardcore hikers are among the most fervent supporters of ditching bags for blankets (though they call them quilts).
If you’ve been thinking about joining those ranks, now’s your opportune chance. REI is offering a bunch of camping blankets from Rumpl at 25 percent off as part of its ongoing holiday sale. Its stash of technical bedding comes in solid colors and funky prints and sizes big enough for one or two. Camp blankets aren’t just for the outdoors either – they’re right at home on the couch inside.
