Top 5 Best Camping Blankets

When it comes to camping everyone knows when it comes to camp bedding, the sleeping bag is the first thing we think of, maybe yet the tent as well. Sleeping bags contain you like a mummy, maintaining the warmth, even at sub zero temperatures. Technical sleeping bags are for the high alpine hikes, and while they now come in a variety of shapes and temperature ratings, sleeping bags tend to be harder to use.


Enter the camp blanket. Often made using the same functional materials as sleeping bags, materials like water-repellent down insulation and ripstop nylon shells, camp blankets fulfill a similar function. A camp blanket is (usually) dark in color and woolen. They provide warmth away from the comforts of home, but beyond that, they offer more flexibility, and they do it with more style. yet still warm and comfortable. For really cold weather a wool or wool blend is best, while for warmer weather any of the lightweight camping blankets will do just fine.

Without the restriction of a zipper, you won't be wrapped up like a cocoon, and camping blankets is more ideal for casual sleeping.
