Seasons has just created my new favorite outdoor blanket. Their comfy waterproof blanket is like a tarp and blanket all in one. With one side that is cozy, and the other side that is waterproof, this is a blanket that I can take anywhere. The best part about it is that it also comes with stakes so that you can stake your blanket into the ground and it won’t blow away on a breezy day. It is the perfect blanket to take camping, picnicking, rock climbing, or even to the beach.
Seasons Blanket is durable enough that it can last a lifetime. Measuring 5.5ft by 4.5 ft it is large enough for my family to sit on but also not too bulky. It is created from heavy canvas for the bottom, infused with water resistance. It repels water and mildew, and then is a soft twill quilt on the other side. It has stainless steel rivets on the corners so that I can stake it down during camping, use it as a shelter, or a windy day at the beach. The waterproof heavy duty canvas can withstand large amounts of water. With a binding strap, the Seasons Blanket can be packed to go anywhere with you. The strap holds the blanket in a roll so that it can be secured to a backpacking backpack. The buckle that holds it together is a quick release.
I store the Seasons Blanket in the back of my car. It is nice to have for picnics, camping, or an emergency blanket. I especially enjoy the fact that the bottom layer is waterproof. I used to have to wash my blankets more often after using them, but now that I have this waterproof blanket I simply give the bottom of the blanket a quick spray with the hose if it has accumulated any mud on it or wet grass. The stakes for the blanket have made it much easier to picnic on breezy days. The blanket has also been helpful on backpacking trips. I can sleep on top of the blanket in my sleeping bag and not worry about it getting wet from the bottom.
This blanket its such a versatile tool and it looks nice too. It is made out of beautiful, quality materials and comes in options of green or black. I have gotten rid of my old blanket and tarp sets and this has replaced them as the single blanket that I need. And with it’s durability, I may never need to buy another outdoor blanket again.
