Review: Travelon's Packable Travel Blanket

Those of you that know me know that I hate to pack items that aren't essential to my travels, but I also get chilly when I'm hanging out in my room or on the plane. I've also been in rentals where I couldn't close the air vent and my room was freezing, no matter what I did, and needed an extra layer. This packable travel blanket from Travelon is the thing my carry-on bag needs, and possibly yours does, too.


Travelon is one of my favorite travel brands. Everything they have is geared to making your travels, and even your home life, better. While you may not be traveling now, you will in the future, plus you can totally use this at home while you're self-isolating during this pandemic. It comes in its own drawstring travel pouch, and is quite small, but you can omit the pouch and save room by just folding it and putting it flat in your bag. 


This blanket is lightweight, as you can see, but it's also a really good size, so it works for everyone. I like to go back to where I'm staying and snuggle up on the couch to watch a show, read a book, or play on my phone. Many travel blankets are quite small and don't cover my lap and feet unless I'm sitting cross legged. Travelon has fixed this problem, by making a blanket that's larger than most, but still fits in a small space.


Look at this! I could, conceivably, use this as a regular lightweight blanket, it's so large. I'd double this up and use it as a lap blanket on the plane or in the car, but it could also be used as a wrap on the plane if you need an extra layer on top. I love multipurpose items, and this one serves many problems I have. 


At home, I always have a blanket on the couch that I share with the dog sometimes. Depending on the season, I switch it out for one that is heavier or lighter and I foresee this one getting a lot of use in Spring and Summer in between my trips. 

Remember, too, that Mother's Day and Father's Day and graduations are coming up, so giving them something thoughtful and useful for their travels (or dorm room) will make their day and they'll think of you each time they use it. Pair it with another cool accessory, like a sleep mask or toiletry bag (both of which Travelon sells) to give them a head start on a new or upgraded travel bag.
