    compact travel blanket - Target

    Went to Target with fam today and found a travel blanket in stuff sack for $12.00! Fleece on one side and nylon on the other. Stuff sack is about the size of my hammock sack and weight is probably 12-13oz. (don't have a good scale so taking a guess on weight)
    The blanket is pretty warm (just laying around the house for the evening) and I thought it would be a good top quilt for summer nights that might get a bit chilly. Definitely going to try it out this spring/summer to replace my heavy synthetic sleeping bag.
    Anyway, for $12.00 it was hard for this poor gear head to pass up.
    They come in several colors and can be found in travel section of Target (with travel pillows and things)

    Got one today. It weighs in at 14.2 oz. Yes, it will make my UL list as top insulation.

    They do look awesome. I've considered getting one. I know we carry them year round(I work at a target) so no need to worry about them being sold out.

    Does anybody know the dimensions of the blanket? Thanks!
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.
