Camping Blankets

Whilst these camping blankets have a slight geometric look about them, they’re still very practical. It’s a good place to toss a bag of chips without making a mess. There are lots of options here to pick from, so do check the reviews and prices!

Wilson Sporting Camping Blanket

The first entry on the list is a simple one, it’s only 7oz. Just washable and lightweight! The fabric used is 180-Gram Tencel Percale — breathable, versatile cotton. The blue color also matches the Wilson brand! This blanket is a great companion when you’re out hiking, or just hanging out and watching a movie.

The blanket is very warm, but not bulky. The top is a heavy, double-layered, 6-ply merino wool, and the underside is an antimicrobial nylon liner. A classic-looking camping blanket with a pretty simple function. The memory foam inside the blanket helps to keep you warm for longer.

Unfortunately, this blanket comes with a hefty price tag, especially considering it’s relatively inexpensive compared to the other options on this list.

Another company you’re going to find a lot of camping blankets, the Ravean one stands out as the most luxurious and refined. The base of the blanket is a high-quality 300 GSM (grams per square meter) Merino Wool & Hybrid Twill.

The structure is what makes this blanket unique, rather than a mesh or puffy base. The edge of the blanket is also a super lightweight 600-D, ten-grain twill. The outside edges are reinforced with duck-down fill, for extra insulation and comfort. It’s about as fluffy as a sleeping bag, but is way warmer!

The dimensions are 45.5″L x 28.5″W x 9.3″H. The Ravean Blanket is a good option if you’re into technical outdoor gear, and would rather have something that stands out. The outside has a rich, warm color to it, which goes very well with the quilt that is meant to go inside.

Patagonia Men’s Insulated Down Blanket

The Patagonia Down Blanket is one of the best blankets for sleeping on the coldest of nights. It’s rated for temperatures down to 30°F, and it’s the warmest blanket on this list.

The warmth comes from a combination of 600-D down, poly fill, and water-repellent dry-transfer, thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) coating. This insulation is built into a custom quilt made of durable 420-D cotton.

What makes this blanket especially unique is the non-slip texture on the bottom of the footbed, which helps keep the bottom of your sleeping bag from sliding on the ground. The quilt is machine washable, so you don’t have to get up to dump a full washer load just to clean your sleeping bag.

There are a generous amount of pockets on this sleeping bag. One inside is big enough to fit a small human, and there’s enough to fit a small water bottle. There are also a few zippered pockets for clothes and one other water bottle pocket.

One unique feature of this sleeping bag is that you can remove all of the pockets and wipe them down with a moist cloth. This is a great feature if you like the idea of only having one dry bag to worry about. You can also fit two water bottles with the included water bladder.

A reflective nylon sleeve around the zipper, helped some users last throughout the night, without a light. The Patagonia Down Blanket comes with a one-year warranty.

Price: $103.93 – $118.00


  • Holds up very well to weather
