Rumpl Review: NanoLoft Puffy Poncho Made From Recycled Plastic

The Rumpl NanoLoft Puffy Poncho is an insulated, all-weather poncho completely made from recycled plastic bottles. Similar to the Rumpl Original Puffy Blanket, it’s made using the same technical materials as sleeping bags and puffy jackets.

The Rumpl NanoLoft Puffy Poncho is ideal for camping, hiking, or simply relaxing on the couch. In addition to being warm and fluffy, the poncho has cool features like zippered kangaroo pockets, a handy drink pocket for your craft beer, and an internal stuff sack that doubles as a pillow cushion. It also unfolds into a small blanket. Click here to read our review of the Rumpl Poncho.
