In the words of Megan Thee Stallion, “we outside” this summer. With everyone still socially distancing, this picnic blanket on Amazon may just be your new ritual to hang out with friends outdoors.

Even just being on social media for a few minutes, you’ll find a picnic blanket with creators scattered about with ethereal cottagecore dresses, chic tea sets and baskets. Sure, an old blanket could do, but this large 60 x 60 outdoor blanket is waterproof and sand-proof. This extra blanket features a backing that repels moisture and also offers a sturdy cushion that lets you clean up messes easily.

Another cool thing about this blanket is that it’s its own carrier as well. After cleanup, you can roll it up and use the attached handle to make traveling along with all your other beach or picnic gear seamless. Not only do more than 6,500 people approve of this blanket, but it’s an Amazon Choice product for picnic blankets.

One shopper says the blanket is great for tall people and comfy enough to fall asleep on.

“This thing is awesome,” they wrote in a review. “Simple, elegant and decently sized. I’m 6’2, and I can curl up on this thing and get a good nap. Also, [I] love that the bottom of it is foam/plastic material that can be laid out on the sand without bringing it home with you.”

Another shopper explained how the one tricky drawback is folding it back up.

“The blanket is good for a beach trip,” the customer wrote. “The sand falls straight off the backside of the blanket. It is water-resistant and large enough for our family of four. The worst part of this blanket is trying to fold it in the wind that is always blowing at the beach. Our folds usually don’t line up with the adhesion, so we aren’t able to carry the blanket back with the handle. Other than that one drawback, the blanket is great!”

All in all, that one blanket to grab for all your outdoor experiences might just be this budget-friendly option.
