The Picnic Blanket by Practico Outdoors has excellent features and a practical design. It’s extra large sizing at 60×80 when spread out works perfectly for my family of four. Despite it’s large size, it can impressively fold up quite small to roughly the size of a purse! When in a folded up state it is adhered by a strong Velcro strip. I’ve not had the blanket come undone unless my aim was to spread it out. There’s a short handle on the blanket for transportation purpose. I would have loved a shoulder strap to free my hands up for other things but it wasn’t a deal breaker for me.
The top blanket material is super soft and quite comfortable on ones skin. It’s made out of an 100% soft cotton fleece. My son has had bad eczema issues in the past and the fact that this blanket doesn’t bother him to sit on is a major plus. The 100% PEVA material on the backside is completely waterproof! This feature is wonderful ensuring you can claim a spot on the lawn without worry of it soaking through and making things uncomfortable. I’ve found it dries quickly on top as well when something has been spilled upon it or a wet kid decided the blanket is a great place to park
The multiple shades of blue plaid pattern is attractive and not overdone. If the blanket gets dirty it is recommend to wash it by hand and to air dry it. It dries very quickly and washes just as easy! It seems to be holding up well after many uses and not picking up unattractive stains, pilling, or other undesirable issues.
I would suggest that if going somewhere windy to make sure the blanket when spread out is weighted down by your stuff or you might be having to chase it down! This didn’t happen to us but I imagined it very well could have if we took it to the Oregon Coast!
Overall, My family is quite happy with this picnic blanket. It’s easy to figure out, bring along, and brag about. It will certainly be making an appearance for all of our park, beach, camping, and other outdoor adventures together. I totally recommend it!
