Blankets are for beds, not for picnics! Don't ruin a blanket or quilt, use the Mega Mat. The Salsa Stripe Mega Mat is made for outdoor seating - sports, beach, tailgating, concerts, picnics, and more! Seats 4-6 people plus additional bags or picnic baskets. Thanks to acrylic construction, sand shakes right off at the beach and grass clippings stay on the grass! It has an 100% waterproof backing, and is slightly padded with foam. There's a hidden storage pocket - perfect for stashing keys or cameras. The Mega Mat ingeniously folds up for easy portability, and has a carry handle and a detachable shoulder strap. The Mega Mat resists mildew, abrasion and cracking. The Mega Mat is also hypo-allergenic, so it's good for sunbathing (wear lots of SPF!). Plus, it's machine washable! Once you've spent a lazy afternoon on the Mega Mat, you'll wonder how you lived without it! Assembly level/degree of difficulty: No Assembly Required.
