What Did We Think?
These blankets come in both a normal down version and a double puffy down version. We packed them in our hiking bags and hit the trails. These both weigh a little over a pound and were able to clip to the side of the pack, or be tucked away inside our main backpack compartment.
When we were hiking up it was clear and actually warm, but that changed extremely quickly. We noticed that at very high elevations there was wind doing some unique things with the clouds and we soon found out that COLD WIND was awaiting us. We got to the top of the mountain and it was freezing! The wind was blowing so hard that we couldn’t even film our video for this Bouffi Down Blanket.
Luckily we had these down blankets as they helped keep us warm and cut the harsh winds that we later learned were 50mph!
When you pull the blanket out of the bag you immediately feel how smooth and soft the material is. As you wrap the blanket around you can feel the warmth start to build within seconds!
This blanket has snaps, so you can also wear it like a poncho to go hands free. This was a win as we were hiking down the mountain to stay warm and keep our hands free.
Did we mention that water slides off this blanket just like a freshly waxed car? See this demo in the video below.
When we were done it was easy to get the blanket back into the carrying case. This isn’t always the case with some things that you have to literally fight with to get it back into the case that it came out of.
PROS: fun colors, good feel/touch, great protection from water, adds immediate warmth, easy to pack back into case
CONS: having a small pockets built in would be a win
Overall, for the price and function of this gets a thumbs up from us. We liked both the normal down blanket and the double puffy, but I’d tip my cap to the Double Puffy as it feels better and costs less. Win Win.
