Galactic Down Blanket from Kelty
The Galactic Down Blanket from Kelty is a cosmic trip in comfort. Created for camping trips, the blanket has stuffed 50D 300T Polyester Taffeta fabric with 550 Fill Power Duck Down, making a blanket that won’t immediately grow damp from being exposed to the great outdoors, and is extremely warm and comfortable without being a heavy weight.
We received the Galactic Down Blanket in Cranberry & Atmosphere – yes, that’s a colour description! What that translates out into is a space-like swirl of blue with dark to light reds. The same blanket is also available in Cathay Spice & Atmosphere or Grisaille & Atmosphere – yes, those are colour descriptions too! Its aesthetic design definitely speaks to a particular target audience, and given how often I’ve met people with this exact vibe either living it up with Van Life or hanging out in the woods and inviting random dog walkers (me) to share some drinks with them, I can see this blanket being right at home.
Whilst designed for camping, you can use this blanket anywhere. In fact, it compresses down into a bag, meaning you can take it anywhere. It measures 72 in / 183 cm with a width of 55 in / 140 cm. In terms of warmth, this blanket might be all you need whilst camping in the summer, or would be a welcome extra boost in autumn and winter. Just take care – it isn’t waterproof, though its polyester material does mean it won’t absorb water with the same disastrous effects as taking a woolen or cotton blanket camping with you!
Feather Down blankets are never cheap, but this one is a reasonable price, and unlike most feather down blankets, it’s compact and able to travel with you. What’s not to love?
