A standard packing list for campers typically includes a sleeping bag, a tent and some sort of cooking apparatus. Rarely does this list feature an additional sleeping accessory in the form of a blanket, mostly omitted for space and practicality reasons. However, blanket company Rumpl (sells a line of “puffy” blankets that, after a few uses, may convince travelers of their worthiness to include in their next packing list.
Rumpl’s original puffy blanket is its most basic variety yet provides a preview into the possibilities offered by Rumpl’s line of blankets. Made from similar materials as a traditional puffy sleeping bag or insulated puffy jacket, the blanket adds an additional layer of warmth in colder environments. The material is weather-resistant featuring a nylon shell and repels dirt, water, pet hair and a variety of odors.
For those worried about space in their backpacks, the blanket collapses nicely and folds into its own carrying sack. This particular blanket comes in three sizes with the following dimensions: throw (50 inches by 70 inches), one-person (54 inches by 80 inches) and two-person (88 inches by 84 inches).
The price for Rumpl’s puffy blankets starts at $99 for the throw size, and they are available in eight colors.
As airlines start nickel and dime-ing their way into the world’s wallets, travelers have had to get crafty in order to get around newly enacted add-on fees, especially when it comes to in-flight meals. Since this luxury is no longer guaranteed on some flights, particularly on low-cost, long-haul vessels, and because airport food is notoriously overpriced, passengers pack their own food to bring on these long flights. But what types of food are allowed to pass through security and also last multiple hours on a plane in varying temperatures?
Once business concludes, a world of wonder awaits in many of Italy’s incredible cities.
I lived in San Francisco during college so coming to visit the city and see all the changes was exciting. The Hotel Zeppelin was built in a once slightly shabby area that has since come alive with new hotels and restaurants for travelers looking for something different. We arrived at noon on a Friday afternoon and were immediately greeted by the hotel staff at the front desk. They were able to accommodate an early check-in, completed in just a few minutes. The lobby is as hip as the hotel name sounds, but it also offered a cozy atmosphere, with a roaring fire and comfy couches and chairs in the lounge area. Unique wall art, statues and lighting remind you of the cool factor.
