Pros Impressively lightweight, compresses small, great weather resistance, becomes a poncho, quite affordableSofter underbelly, weather-resistant, great features, feels warm, easy to cleanQuite warm and puffy, fairly weather-resistant, comfortable, reasonably affordableSolid insulation, light and packable, compression stuff sack, large size, affordableVery soft underside, comfortable, simple stuff sack, reasonable size/weight, inexpensive
Cons Slippery material, thin-feeling, unimpressive durabilityA bit large and bulkyVery large and bulky, a bit slick, not home washableNo cross-stitching, not weatherproofOn the small side, not super warm, not particularly technical
Bottom Line A packable, portable blanket with a fairly low price tag but a little lacking in durabilityThough a little bulky, this blanket is comfortable and provides serious warmth and weather protectionA cozy, warm blanket that's great on cold days, but it's a bit large for most travelThis blanket is a solid performer for a seriously great priceA good, comfortable option for pretty much any casual cozying
