No one cares what you look like when you're camping

The only thing that camping trips and fashion shows have in common is that it’s best to attend both with a drink in hand.

One question where they're squarely divided is, of course, that of fashion versus function. And the folks at toasty-blanket-maker Rumpl have done nothing to clear up the debate with a new garment that is equal parts utilitarian and unglamorous.

Lightweight and covered with 100% waterproof nylon on its shoulders and three-panel hood, the open body of the Rumpl Puffy Poncho is made from the same water-resistant fabric the gear company uses on its blankets.

Equipped with a kangaroo pouch with two-hand pockets, brass snaps and an invisible zipper pocket offering hands-free beverage holding, the machine-washable poncho packs down to the size of a pillow.

Currently priced at $145 on Kickstarter, delivery of the poncho by December 15th is guaranteed.

Long story short: You’ll be warm and your beer will be cold. Let ‘em laugh.
