Scouting Report: This packable, waterproof beach blanket is the perfect thing to bring on any trip. It's sand-proof and puncture-resistant and fits up to four people.
Recently, I’ve been loving spending time outdoors. I’m doing it safely of course, wearing a mask, keeping my distance, washing my hands. But I can’t overstate enough how nice it is to just sit outside—whether that’s in my backyard, or in a park, or even on a beach—and breathe some fresh air. If there’s a to-go cocktail by my side, honestly, even better. But for a while, I’d walk around and wish I had brought a place to sit with me. I’m not the biggest fan of sitting directly on the grass. I’ll do it, but I’d prefer to have something to sit on instead.
BEARZ Outdoor Beach Blanket
The BEARZ Outdoor beach blanket is a blanket you’ll always be able to bring along. It’s perfect for the beach, of course, but it’s also excellent for any grassy area you can find. The blanket folds up to about the size of a grapefruit, making it extremely portable, and easy to fit in your favorite tote or backpack. It’s waterproof, puncture-resistant, and even sand proof, so you don’t take the entire beach home with you when you pack up. Instead, sand drips off of it like an hourglass. The blanket itself folds out to 55 inches by 60 inches, so it easily fits two people and up to four. It comes in a few different colors, and can hook onto your backpack via the carabiner it comes with, so you’ll always have it handy.
I will never forget a picnic blanket again. Now, I always have one tucked away in my backpack so I can relax and look up at the clouds anywhere I like.
