Gorilla Dirt El Jefe Adventure Blanket
Used by adventurers just like you throughout North America
This adventure blanket color was inspired by the colors of Mexico. We loved this colorway so much, and because of the origin, we started referring to this blanket as El Jefe, or The Chief, as we fully expected this blanket to be a customer favorite. These are a part of our Gorilla Dirt X Pro series of products due to their quality and versatility in the elements.
These are camp, trail, and home ready. We tested these at home and on the trail over two months to be sure they not only kept us warm and comfortable but also held up. The 50D water-resistant polyester outer shell didn’t disappoint. We filled these with a lightweight 240gsm, non-glue, polyester padding that worked extremely well at maintaining warmth in the cold winter months without overheating.
It’s like wrapping yourself in a cozy sleeping bag or adding that same comfort beneath you.
6 Ripcord Utility Loops, 3 On Each Side
We began getting feedback and realized that many customers used our blankets not just above but beneath them on cots, air mattresses, etc. But the blankets moved around beath them. We decided to add 3 tie-down loops on each side that would allow you to tie down the blanket beneath you. We even now sell extra-long velcro strips that you can loop through the blanket loops, wrap around your air mattress or cot, then attach to the other loop on the other side of the blanket.
50D Ripstop Water Resistant Polyester Outer Shell
Our Adventure Blankets are designed using 50D ripstop polyester with a water-resistant coating to protect against the weather as well as stains.
Ripstop is a method that weaves the fabric using a reinforcement technique. While these blankets are not indestructible, we have used these in tents, on beds, in cars, and directly on the ground. Assuming you don’t lay this down on sharp objects, this blanket will be with you for many adventures.
Unlike sleeping bags that seal up all around you, trapping in heat, these are blankets that don’t seal up around you – unless, of course, you wrap yourself up in one like a burrito – which we have and slept like a baby! We have tested and used these blankets in 40F temperatures. Combine these with your sleeping bag or other blankets to increase the temperature rating. These work excellently in the cold as additional warmth above or below you. Since everyone sleeps differently – hot, cold, in a sleeping bag, in a tent, in a bivy sac, on the ground… etc, etc, we can’t stamp a specific rating on these. But these are 4 season blankets when used properly – use them in the cold or warmth, and use them above you or below you.
Stuff Sack Storage Bag
All of our Adventure Blankets come with a design-matched stuff sack. Roll the blanket up or simply stuff it in. The stuff sack helps you store and secure this at home or on your trips. And with the design-matched bottom of the sack, if you own multiple Adventure Blankets, you can easily find the blanket with the design you want.
Adventure Doesn’t Have To Be Rough
These blankets are like your cozy sleeping bag in a Gorilla Dirt blanket! We use a smaller, square stitching pattern which creates a comfortable, symmetrical feel on your skin. And the 240gsm polyester fill padding gives these blankets a soft, light touch. Use them beneath you to add some extra comfort to lay on or above you for some fantastic cozy warmth. You can even use these as your beach blanket!
