Starting in the back of a van Rumpl founder Wylie Robinson realized that sleeping bags weren't cutting it for them and wanted the same feeling of a sleeping bag in a blanket. Returning from the trip and borrowing a sewing machine, the first Rumpl “Puffy” blankets were hand sewn in a cramped San Francisco apartment. After several months using the blankets, the two realized they had stumbled on to an idea much grander than just a sleeping bag blanket. The materials typically found in everyday blankets hadn’t evolved in hundreds of years—the entire category wasn’t utilizing any of the material innovation that was taking place in apparel, outdoor gear, and activewear. Today, Rumpl makes high quality packable blankets, shammy towels, and more!
