I just found the perfect travel - Oversized, 80''x80'' Extra Large Outdoor Beach Blanket / Picnic Mat! This is great for trips to the creek, camping, beach etc..
As Dr. Seuss would say, "Oh the places we will go"!
When I as asked to write a review on this Waterproof and Foldable mat, to be honest I did not have high expectations. This is a company I have never heard of before and I got it off of Amazon - So, to be honest, I was expecting cheap plastic. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality. The Velcro strip has a good grip and the padding is not too thin. This mat is a lot larger than I expected with a quilted stitching that makes the look of the mat more appealing. The texture and style looks more like a blanket than a plastic tarp, which is what I was expecting.
The only thing I would have liked is maybe some weighted corners. Though the mat was easy to unfold, we had trouble with the breeze keeping the mat flat. As you can see in the picture, having people and items on the the mat will help with this issue, but the weights would be a great feature.
This mat will definitely be added to our camper for our mini adventures. I have not seen another item that is light weight and that converts into a small enough size to fit into a backpack. I saved the best for last : This folding picnic camping mat is completely machine washable and dryable for easy cleaning! Now I dont have to worry about the kids actually eating on our picnic blanket! Other possible uses: Yoga Mat, Outdoor Baby Play area, ore even used as a light blanket...
