Rated 4 out of 5 by Pooz Light, super packable
Haven't had a chance to use this at the beach yet, but it was great at the park. Love the pockets for anchoring. Also nice that it's easy to carry and not bulky.

Rated 5 out of 5 unique option
great for the beach (sand doesn't get stuck like with a towel or traditional blanket, dries super quick) , picnics on the grass (granted it's not too wet), etc.
we leave it in the car, and i pop it into my backpack whenever we're on a trail or feel we might stop to eat. washes easily and can be quickly smushed back in it's carrying bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by OnlineShopper7777 Great buy!
I bought this as a gift for a friend with a young baby. They love it! A few pros: sand doesn't stick to it, dries quickly, and packs up small/light.

Rated 5 out of 5 Great product
Great product. The corner pockets for sand really worked well at keeping the parasheet secured to the ground - took it out on the beach in NC.

by NewToCamping2013 It is fantastic!
This is so light, colorful, and folds up extremely small. It was perfect to take to the beach--you can weight it down with sand in the corner pockets. It dries fast, and you don't have to lay on a wet towel on the beach.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Skyblue71 Just Right!
I purchased 2 of these to take with us on a family trip to Thailand. We have already gotten to test them out on the beach here & they worked wonderfully. Fabric is very light, but sand doesn't come through. Pockets on the corners can hold sand or rocks to keep the sheet from blowing around. They shake out clean & stuff back into the carry bags perfectly! Can't wait to use them on our trip!
Very happy with our purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by W1ndstar I Love it.....
It works great for dune hikes, beachtime and for lunch in the park. Here, on the shore of Lk Michigan, most days at the dunes and on the beach are windy days. The Parasheet does it's job well. The first time we used it I was concerned that it would not fit in the attached bag. It does with room to spare. We used it almost daily this summer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by bikingmama Great except for washing
When my first daughter was a baby, we spent a lot of time in the summer on the front lawn in the shade, hanging out on a beach towel. Now that she's a toddler and her baby sister is here, I wanted something along the same lines except bigger. This parasheet is better than what I'd originally envisioned getting (a double-sized beach towel) - unlike a towel, it packs up much smaller (so great for travel!), and the fabric really is super-cool in hot weather.
The only thing I don't like about it so far is that the original one didn't hold up to machine washing as well as it was supposed to. The first time I tried to wash it (on gentle cycle with gentle-wash detergent and line-drying), the built-in stuff sack came apart at the seams. So I returned it and got a second one; am hoping the problem with the first one was maybe a defect in that individual item, rather than a systemic problem that is going to recur. Thanks for continuing to stand behind your products no matter what, LLBean!
