I was searching for a softer outdoor blanket for movie nights in the park and it just so happened we were heading to the beach next week. I was hopeful this would do the trick because it cost twice as much as the plastic-y soft one I picked up at bed bath & beyond.
Pro: soft and fuzzy, sand did not stick to the bottom at the beach, miraculously a couple good shakes and sand came off the fuzzy top with barely any residual. One machine wash in on delicate, spots came out and its holding up fine. We had a 3 year old and a tanning oiled teenager so it was battle tested. Best part: once you've trashed it at the beach, your family is tired & hungry you will not need an engineering degree to fold/rezip it. Just roll it up however you'd like and stuff back in the bag.
Cons: slightly smaller for family use (I would put 2 kids on there for movies and it wouldn't be spacious by the time you add drinks, snacks, some toys, (kid junk), I followed their recommended drying instructions and it took 2 delicate cycles of not drying until I turned it on high to get it dry. I did not appear to damage it in the process, so that's not a true "con"
I'm hopeful our family will continue to enjoy this blanket for years to come. I was very impressed with it so far and think it was worth the increased price as long as it continues to hold up
Newport Picnic & Outdoor Blanket
So pleased with this purchase. Great addition for summer picnics at the park and beach days. The material is incredibly soft and easy to clean. Even better is that the bottom is water resistant. Carrying case is a nice touch. My pup and I enjoyed it!
Great blanket for the outdoors! The pattern is really nice and it is very durable. Excited to use it.
I love this blanket! This was my first Laguna Beach Textile product so I wasn't sure what to expect but it greatly exceeded my expectations. The blanket feels and looks super high quality. The fabric is very durable and the waterproof backing is genius. I've had a couple of similar products in the past but this one is far superior. Highly recommend!
