If you’ve decided not to take chairs and a table camping – you’ve probably decided on the hassle-free option – the picnic blanket! And you’ll want one that is just as comfortable as a chair if not more comfortable. We’ve found with the Down Under Outdoors picnic blanket, that the fleece lining gives it that luxury feel – the one that makes you feel just that little bit spoilt! Cleverly – they’ve also managed to make this blanket lightweight too. Packed in an easy stuff sack with a handle – it can be taken anywhere, and carried by anyone!
Being weatherproof on one side – this makes the picnic blanket suitable for any surface and weather. If you’re caught in unexpected rain, you can pick it up and put it over the top of you and you’re protected from the storm, while keeping warm from the fleece lining that’s on the other side. The durable weatherproof material is suitable for most ground surfaces, such as the damp grass, dirt, sand or concrete. While picnickers will usually look for the perfect grassy picnic spot – sometimes it’s not always possible, and it’s nice to know you can picnic anywhere with the Down Under Outdoors picnic blanket.
Also when used at home, or in a campervan, it can be used for a variety of purposes. Some of which include a blanket to protect furniture – from messy little fingers, or the family pet. I’ve used it when my husband has wandered in covered in grease after working on another motor engine – and thrown it on furniture before he sits down. The furniture, saved!
And when it becomes grubby – just throw it in the wash! And if you have children it will get grubby – as little ones love the fleece lining. The Down Under Outdoors picnic blanket makes life easier! Not to mention if you’re out enjoying a lovely picnic and the weather turns and becomes cold, all you have to do is wrap part of the blanket around you to keep warm, it works a treat.
And it also has a nifty zip pocket. I’ve managed to put a pocket-sized packet of tissues, small notepad and pen, and my mobile phone in the pocket (not that I recommend using mobile phones while picnicking – just nice to know it’s there on occasions). You can fill the pocket up with any small items.
It is the most practical picnic blanket I’ve seen so far. The only downfall for me was the dark colour of the black fleece lining. However, with a variety of picnic utensils and a couple of colourful cushions – it brightened things up! And during warm weather – I turned the fleece lining down – and sat on the weatherproof material, it is cooler and a nice bright blue colour too!
It’s rated five stars and is value for money, at just only $39.99! It’s worth a try! Especially if you’re trying to make life that little bit easier.
