fabrics are the recognized reference standard in the outdoor industry
and have been the insulating layer of choice for more than 30 years.
They are unparalleled in quality and durability.
The 100% polyester velour construction creates air pockets that trap air and retain body heat.
The result is a warmth-to-weight ratio far better than other
materials, which means a lighter weight, warmer blanket.
Unlike less expensive fleeces, Polartec® Classic fleece maintains its
insulating ability and non-pilling appearance after repeated
laundering. A Mambe Hooded Blanket is worth the investment: it will
serve you well and look great for years to come.
Great for kids too! (although it's
only available in adult size currently)

immediate warmth without the bulk. Fine fibers are
engineered for permanent water resistance and create
tight surface tension that resists moisture

For $15 Mambe added three extra snaps. All hooded blankets come with a snap at the neck. Mambe added an extra snap (1) in the hand-pocket area, (2)in the general area of the knee, and (3)at the bottom. The arrangement allows the blanket to stay closed while giving you the use of your hands, with the slight disadvantage that the blanket may tend to gap open in the torso area (A fourth snap here might help). The extra snaps are well worth the $15. Also, the stuff sacks are a big improvement over the ones from a few years ago; even the extreme-weather model went into one easily. The Extreme-Weather model is noticeably heavier and bulkier but not unacceptably so. It would be my choice for winter, with the standard-weight one for fall and spring.

Terrific Blanket / Cape

Previous reviews rave with good reason about how wonderful the hooded blanket is for spectator sports; I myself use it to sit out afternoons at the park. It is quite roomy and should accommodate most adults nicely.
What really adds to its versatility is that because of the snap fastener at the neck, it functions very well as a cape, provided you are tall enough (I'm just shy of 5' 7", and it reaches to my ankles). I've been wearing a heavy oilskin duster to walk my dogs in the winter, but the hooded blanket is an excellent alternative.
Wearing it as a cape also makes it much easier to transport. Sometimes I use it as a blanket on the ground, and rather than stuff it into a tote bag (one more thing to carry), I just wear it as a cape until I've hiked to my destination.
Mambe's excellent customer service and customization offerings persuaded me to buy two additional hooded blankets. For a small charge ($15 to $20), Mambe will add two additional snaps on the front for customers who would like the option to fasten the blanket closed from head to foot. They also offer as a special-order item a third hooded blanket that is the warmest but also very bulky (and so not as popular).
I own a couple Mambe Extreme Blankets, and while their quality is outstanding, the Hooded Blanket is Mambe's star product because it's so practical and versatile.
One possible improvement might be a slit on either side to allow wearers to slip their arms outside; when not in use, the slits could be closed with Velcro so as not to admit the cold. If you're trying both to keep the blanket closed and use your hands (for instance, to hold a book or cell phone), it gets awkward. However, I think getting a hooded blanket with two extra snaps may solve that problem. On the other hand, I'm glad it doesn't have sleeves, which would add to the bulk and make it less streamlined. The hood, however, is wonderful: warm and roomy, extending out far enough to really shield your face.
This is an AMAZING blanket and Mambe is an amazing company!

We travel with my grandchildren year around, particularly for soccer. That includes some very cold, windy spring games and cold, windy, wet autumn games. I have the Extreme Weather hooded blanket, and I could not possibly be happier. It keeps me completely warm and dry, and there is even room for a 5-year-old granddaughter to keep warm in it beside me. We sat through games this year where it was cold and poured rain during much of the games. I was completely comfortable! The carrying sack is marvelous. The folks at Mambe are so very helpful and customer-service oriented, and I love that this is an American-made product. This blanket is worth every penny I paid, and I appreciated the coupons that Mambe included for a discounted cost on future purchases and/or to pass on to others. I certainly took advantage of the coupon (I now have 2 hooded blankets) and passed some on to others! This blanket has attracted much attention here! Long live Mambe!
Excellent Customer Service

In May of this year I wrote a review on our Mambe hooded blanket. I said I loved my blanket, but hated the detached strap. My review was followed by a suggestion that Mambe improve the blanket by attaching the strap. A few days after my suggestion, I was contacted by a Mambe representative who apologized for the experience and gave me a stuff sack to easily carry the blanket. My stuff sack arrived within two days. Mambe subsequently contacted me to say that because of my suggestion, all future Mambe purchases were going to include a stuff sack for easy carrying.
Thank you Mambe! I'll definitely buy more Mambe products and refer my friends/family to also purchase.
