If you want a large picnic blanket that doesn't cost the earth I think this is it! This blanket has a nice woven top with a water proof back. It's easily big enough for our family of 4 plus the dogs! I like how it has a couple of elastic straps attached to the end so you can't lose them but it makes it easy to fold or roll the blanket up, you can pretty much do it how ever you like, so long as you end with the straps at the right end they'll slide over it however bad your folding is! Very happy with this purchase.
