Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on April 26, 2018
For the price, this is the one. I bought this for sitting out in the wind and light rain at baseball tournaments. Spring and Fall always have a month where the games can get miserable for spectators and require blankets. This folds up nicely in a small bag, but does the trick. It is not the expensive $150 Mambe blanket which I will ask for for Christmas :) but for under $30, it will work! This blanket is quilted so it doesn't slide around, and though it came out of the bag seeming a little stiff, after a few washes and drys, it is flexible. The fleece underneat is soft, not microfiber plush, but soft and warm. "Down Under Outdoors Premium Large Waterproof, Windproof, Quilted Fleece Stadium Blanket, Machine Washable, Camping, Picnic & Outdoor..." It was true to size at 82 x 55 inches My son and I went outside with two Amazon similar blankets (this and the "XL Plush Fleece Outdoor Stadium Rainproof and Windproof Picnic Blanket - Camp Blanket (Blue)" in a very light rain with the wind blowing a bit and the wind came right through the XL Plush fleece blanket, the water did dampen but not soak the outer shell, but it was not raining hard. I don't see how that would keep anyone warm and dry or be used as picnic blanket if the grass was damp. We chose to keep the Down Under blanket, which felt much warmer in the wind and after several washes became very soft and was definitely more substantial and windproof and stable (not sliding bc it's qulited) than this XL Plush. After a few games I will decide whether to buy a second Down Under. I wish it came in more colors and I wish it had just a thinlayer of padding/insulation between the layer of plush and the waterproof layer, just to make it a little more cozy. But for the price this is great and suits our purposes fine.
