Cozy but bulky

Verified Buyer Reviewed by Josh from San Francisco on Wednesday, February 8, 2017
This is a comfortable blanked made from higher-quality-than-average fleece material. At approx. 5 feet long by 3 feet wide, this provides a lot of coverage for most people (and a little extra for my wife who is 5'2"). The only drawback with this item is that it's quite bulky when rolled up or compressed.

It doesn't roll up very tight, and it has a hard time fitting into its own pocket (the picture is misleading, giving the impression that it fits easily). If folded into thirds along the 3' side before rolling, dimensions of the resulting cylinder shape are approx 12" long and 4-5" in diameter. That's pretty big for a "travel" blanket.

This is too big for most travelers, and it's not very feasible to use this on the plane. But it's probably fine if you don't have a lot of carry-on gear or are traveling by car or train. There are other ultralight travel blankets that roll up much smaller than this one, although they are quite a bit more expensive.

This is a nice purchase at $15 or less, but don't expect this product to be compact.
