Rated 4 out of 5áby CalDude Looks great-
Just got my waterproof blanket. Will keep it in the car for emergencies or ballgames. I bought the Loden Fair Isle, which is sharp looking. I'm assuming it is waterproof, as LL Bean states.
My only complaint is that mine came without the included stuff sack. However it did have a separate elastic band to keep it from unrolling. If the band was sewn onto the blanket and came with the stuff sack, I'd give it 5 stars.

Rated 5 out of 5áby BlueRidgeViews Great quality and price
I shopped extensively for an outdoor picnic blanket, the LL Bean blanket had the features I was looking for at a fair price. I would have liked a wool blanket but I was not willing to pay $100+.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great for camping
I bought this blanket to use when we go camping, just in case we wanted to take a picnic lunch on one of our hikes. We actually ended up using it under the dog beds when we put them outside, to keep the dampness from getting into the cushions. It worked great, especially since we had two days of rain. When we were able to be outside again it kept the beds from getting wet from the ground. It was also good because we could throw it over the dogs if they got cold at night while we were out by the fire. We're looking forward to using it for our picnic lunch in the future.
The size is great, it has nice soft fleece and it is easy to wash. It was a good investment.

Totally useful and practical blanket!! The sand doesn't stick to it at the beach and it's a superb underblanket when camping.

Very impressed with blanket and can't wait to use it again . One reviewer said that it will comfortably fit 2-3 adults. I got the largest one and unless you are 90 lbs or a small child it will not accommodate 3 people...still quality and color are great!!!!!

I gave this to my high school graduating nephew, who is an outdoor enthusiast. It rides both in his car and on his motorcycle. He was surprised and pleased!

Rated 5 out of 5áby WNCmomma great outdoor blanket
Very soft fleece side, nice size, seems very durable. I haven't tested its waterproof-ness yet, but I really like the blanket.

Rated 4 out of 5áby billyburgbuddy Very nice blanket
This is a nice blanket. I like it's size, which fits about two or three adults comfortably with enough for a small picnic basket. I got the blue/navy pattern because it reminded me of so-called "Navajo," or something from the SW design patterns that were popular in fleeces back in the 80's and 90's and which Bean use to sell ( bring them back! one of your competitors does and they sell out every season ).
It appears to be at least highly water resistant but I haven't tested it in a downpour ( why would I?). My only complaint is that as other people have mentioned the nylon backing is noisy and...I wish it has an attached band to go around it rather than having to stuff it in a sack but it's easy and light, too, so no major complaint there.
A good choice, I recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby aneleu08 Great blanket
I recently received this blanket as a gift from my mother. It will be perfect for cold nights at a baseball or football game. The fleece side is SO soft, and the water resistant nylon side will be great for keeping me dry when it starts to rain.
It also folds up into a small pouch, so it can easily be stored when not in use.
