Outdoor brands are constantly kicking quality products at a frequency that can often have consumers feeling overwhelmed. That’s partly why reviews are helpful, so you can sort through what’s worthwhile and what’s just something shiny with not much substance. When brand collaborations release even more new gear, especially when those brands are favorites in the industry, it can often inspire us to drop everything to check things out.


The OluKai x Rumpl collab brings two beloved items together: quality footwear and puffy blankets (as well as towels). OluKai’s limited slipper collection is made with the same puffy materials found in outdoor performance gear, and Rumpl brings the spirit of aloha to its puffy blanks and quick-drying towels. The limited-edition capsule collection is designed to roam where you do, whether your passion for exploration brings you to the beach or mountains, camping or lounging.


The OluKai x Rumpl men’s collection includes Ulele ʻOlu Mino slide sandals (in deep water/tide colors) and Mahana Mino fleece-lined slippers (in deep water/fox colors). The women’s collection includes Nuʻa Mino slide sandals (in pink sea salt/tide colors) and Kuʻi Mino slippers (in deep water color). Both men’s and women’s slide sandals list for $100 and slippers list for $120 on the OluKai site.


The Rumpl x OluKai collection includes the Original Puffy Blanket – Mauna Loa ($129), the Sherpa Puffy Blanket – Blue Spruce (currently sold out, but it will be restocked in October), and the Everywhere Towel ($54, in Hawaiʻi Tide Coral or Hawaiʻi Tide Aqua colors), all on the Rumpl site.


My favorites from this collection are the men’s Ulele ʻOlu Mino slide sandals and the Original Puffy Blanket – Mauna Loa. I chose the men’s slides simply because I like blue better than pink, and I liked the blanket for its bright colors inspired by Mauna Loa—one of Earth’s most active volcanoes. Whatever item you’re drawn to in this collection is a winner.
