Rumpl, a maker of technical blankets, has launched an exclusive capsule collection of NASA products. The limited-edition line of insulated blankets and ponchos celebrates the 50th anniversary of the safe landing of the Apollo 13 lunar module. 

The collectible NASA designs are available in three different products: the NanoLoft® blanket, original puffy blanket and the NanoLoft® puffy poncho. The products feature a 100 percent post-consumer recycled polyester shell and insulation, a heat-reflective 20D nylon shell, a durable water repellant (DWR) finish for stain and water resistance, Cape Clip™ for hands-free use, NASA spacesuit-inspired Tyvek® product label and corner loops. The products are machine washable, and a water-resistant NASA stuff sack is included. 

The collection was created, the company says, to recognize the inspiration of space exploration, as well as the unbreakable human spirit. “The NASA Collection celebrates humanity’s grit, adaptability and perseverance under extreme stress,” says Wylie Robinson, CEO and founder of Rumpl. “When Apollo 13’s lunar module crashed into the South Pacific Ocean 50 years ago, safely returning the three-man crew of astronauts, it became one of the greatest American rescue missions of all time.”
