The days are getting colder, but that only means you need to scoot closer to the fire and wrap yourself up in a Therm-a-Rest® Tech Blanket™. These lightweight blankets are both durable and comfortable, making them great for snuggling outdoors or as a second blanket for those winter nights.
We like the large size, which is a full 80-inches long and 58-inches wide. The regular size is 48-inches wide, but we didn’t feel that was big enough to accommodate two kids (let alone mom and dad!).
The nylon exterior is pretty tough – ours is going on its third year with no rips or punctures. The synthetic fill makes the Tech Blanket feel soft like a quilt, but the whole thing weighs less than two pounds and compresses nicely into its stuff sack.
Don’t get me wrong – the Tech Blanket isn’t going to do the trick when the temperatures drop into the mid-40’s, but for general purpose use around the campsite it’s really nice. And, best of all, when you get home you can throw it in the washer to get the smoke smell out! We decided to put another one of these on our Christmas list this year, since the kids pretty much own the one we have now.
