Your Guide To Buying a Picnic Blanket

By Yehudah Posnick

    When you want to enjoy the great outdoors, you might want to go on a picnic. But you can't exactly expect carpeting out there. A picnic blanket is specially designed so that you can put down your picnic basket, lay out your eating utensils and sit comfortably on the grass (or sand, if you take it to the beach). You'll also want a blanket that can fit an entire family but can also roll up into a manageable size when traveling.  You’ll find that there are a number of materials that are employed in picnic blankets. They can be a single layer of nylon or polyester, which provides a good waterproof insulation from the damp grass or ground. Then there are more sophisticated designs, which consist of two or even three layers of materials: for example, some have a polyethylene and aluminum bottom, a top made from soft Polar fleece, with a middle layer of foam. This provides softness and warmth as well when picnicking.  

    To help you make the right choice, we have put together this buying guide including everything you need to know about picnic blankets to make a good investment. It'll help you:

    • Choose the right type of picnic blanket,

    • See useful tips about that type of picnic blanket,    

    • Read reviews of different brands of picnic blankets, and what customers are saying,

    • Select the right brand of picnic blanket, and

    Compare prices and find the best deals.

    You can distinguish between the different types of blankets by their materials:

    • Top material: You can find a variety of materials used for the top of the blanket:

      • Some picnic blankets have an acrylic surface, which ensures that it's washable. The Andway beach mat employs an acrylic surface.

      • Others are 100% wool or fleece, which is particularly warm (but you don't want to have to launder it often). The Allwa XXX-Large Picnic Blanket is made from soft Polar fleece.

      • Still others, such as the HomyWolf Beach Blanket-Outdoor Mat-Picnic Blanket-Camping Blanket, consist of a cotton-linen cover, or Oxford cloth, with a polyester filling.  

    • Backing: There are also a variety of materials used for the backing—all to ensure insulation from the ground:

      • PVC backing

      • Polyester

      • Plastic

    All these materials are to ensure that the moisture from the ground doesn't seep through the blanket. The bottom has to protect you from sand and dirt as well.

    Based on all the consumers' reviews we've scanned, these are the top things they mentioned about their new stuff:

    • Machine washable:  Some blankets are machine-washable, whereas others just require you to wipe the surface off with a damp cloth. Or you can hose them down and let it air dry.

    • Convenient carrying straps: Picnic blankets usually have Velcro straps or buckles with straps to allow rolling the blanket up when not in use. The Tuffo Water-Resistant Outdoor Blanket has both sling- and shoulder-straps, for the ultimate convenience. The Skip Hop Central Park Picnic Blanket allows you to carry the blanket over your shoulder, or to convert it to a backpack. The HomyWolf Beach Blanket-Outdoor Mat-Picnic Blanket-Camping Blanket have Velcro flaps to make sure that the blanket remains folded when traveling.

    • Removing stains: The bottom side of your picnic blanket may accumulate grass stains. Most models of picnic blankets, such as the Physport Camping Blanket by Jumping, are made from materials that allow you to wipe any sand off the fabric easily, while grass stains can be washed off with just soap and water.  

    • Waterproof: You certainly want a picnic blanket to protect you from dew or dampness at night. The Physport Camping Blanket by Jumping is an all-purpose water-resistant mat: The top it made from water-resistant Oxford fleece, and the waterproof bottom is made from PVC. It can serve as a barrier against moisture even at night.

    • Cooler pack: Some picnic blankets have storage pouches as well. And some are even insulated so that they will keep food and drinks cool, even if it’s hot outside. For example, the Skip Hop Central Park picnic blanket has an insulated cooler bag for holding food and drinks. You can insert an ice pack into the pouch to keep things cold for an entire day.

    • The size of the blanket when spread out: A blanket that is 6'8” x 5' (80 in. x 60 in., or 33.3 square feet) can usually accommodate a family of 6 with plates, food, and eating utensils. The Oliver James Extra-Large Picnic Blanket measures 84" x 72", as does the Weimy Sand Repellant Lightweight Compact Beach Blanket.

    • The size of the blanket when rolled up:  Look at the length and the diameter of the blanket when rolled up. An 80” x 60” blanket can roll up into a 14” long cylinder that is 7” in diameter. But some picnic blankets have been designed to be especially compact: The Praktikal Life Pocket Blanket is a compact blanket that opens up to 66" x 55", but folds down to be small enough to fit in a 4.7" x 3.6" pouch--small enough to be carried in the palm of your hand! But take note that some blankets must be folded properly to be that compact—if the blanket came folded, try to fold along the same creases that the manufacturer provided.

    • Durable material: Synthetic fibers like polyester and nylon can be amazingly durable. The Praktikal Life Pocket Blanket is made from ripstop nylon (where reinforcement threads are woven into the blanket's fabric) that is also quick-drying.

    • Attached pouch: Most picnic blankets can be folded down to a very compact size. But the carrying pouch can either be a separate item or sewn together with the actual blanket. It’s certainly an advantage that the pouch is part and parcel with the blanket--there’s less of a risk of the pouch getting lost, as you set up a picnic with your blanket in different places. For example, the Palm Beach Crew Brilliant Blanket has an attached pouch into which you can store the blanket.

    • The thickness of the blanket: You'll see the thickness of the blanket either in denier or in units of gsm (grams per square meter):

      • Denier: The denier is a measure of the linear mass density of fibers in a fabric. 1 denier is the mass in grams of 9000 meters of a particular fiber. For example, 1 strand of silk is 1 denier, so 9000 meters of 1 strand of silk weighs one gram. For example, the La Vita di Sole measures 300 x 600 deniers--meaning that the polyester threads are packed twice as densely in one direction than the other.

      • gsm: This is also a common method of determining the thickness of a fabric. That’s important when discussing a blanket that you want to provide protection from the elements. It comes out that 185 gsm will be 5.5 oz. of weight. The Practico Outdoors Extra Large Picnic Blanket has a 220 gsm polar fleece on the top layer--that density makes the fleece especially warm.

    • Alternate uses: A picnic is not the only use for a picnic blanket. Some are designed to keep you warm as well-- with a layer of fleece, or aluminum on the underside, that can allow it to serve as an emergency blanket as well. For example--there are situations where you can wrap the blanket around yourself to protect yourself from the cold:

      • Sporting events: For example, you may attend a sporting event in a windy stadium, and need some means of protection, especially if you’re sitting on cold bleachers.  

      • Outdoor concerts: A picnic blanket can also serve to keep you warm at an outdoor concert if it becomes chilly at night.

      • At the beach or in the park: You can also use a picnic blanket at the beach or in the park as well. Many picnic blankets are made so that sand won’t adhere to the surface. Alternatively, the designers have made the bottom material from something that won’t pick up grass stains.

      • As a children’s play mat: The thicker picnic mats with a foam layer, such as the Allwa XXX-Large 69" x 79" outdoor blanket can also serve as a children’s play mat, for both indoor and outdoor activities. The extra thick blanket will protect the children from scraping their elbows or knees, or insulate them from a cold stone or wooden floor.
