Some of the stitching was coming undone, which was only slightly disappointing and led to me knocking off a star.
Otherwise I am very satisfied and would recommend.
My hubby ordered a blanket for me for our road trips; I liked it so much, I ordered one for my daughter for her birthday! Great quality!
Great quality and design. Perfect for the park. Will definitely buy another as a gift!
Very satisfied with the quality of the Laguna Beach towel
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
