Review of the Grand Trunk Parasheet Beach / Picnic Blanket

Grand Trunk Parasheet Beach / Picnic Blanket

We noticed this product on Amazon, primarily because of the great reviews it was getting. To date it has 169 customer reviews, which is huge for any product but even better the average rating is 4.6 out of 5. Again a very high score. 152 of the 169 customer reviews actually rated this as either 4 stars or 5 stars.

So what makes it so highly rated?

  • 76 reviewers made positive comments about the fact that it is so light and the ease with which it fits back into its carry bag.
  • 42 reviewers commented on how easy it is to shake off the sand from the blanket.
  • 42 reviewers considered it “great for use at the beach”

Let’s take a look in more detail.

The blanket is 7 foot square, so a good size, and has small pockets on each corner which you can fill with rocks or sand to anchor it and prevent the wind causing problems. It’s also fully washable which seems to be a much needed feature for a beach blanket and the actual manufacturing quality is also good with nice, neat and tight seams. One reviewer called it:

“This thing is like the greatest thing since sliced bread. It fits in a teeny tiny bag and weighs almost nothing”

There were some comments about choosing the right color with the preferred option being the lighter varieties rather than the darker alternative. The choices of color are:

  • Orange/Yellow
  • Light Blue/Yellow
  • Sky/Blue
  • Teal/Yellow
  • Green/Bright Blue
  • Teal/Yellow
  • Turquoise/Sky Blue

The picture at the top of the page is the Sky/Blue one but all the choices look pretty good.

All in all this is one of the most highly rated products we have seen for the beach and highly recommended. Take a look for yourself here.
