áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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 5áby 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!

Rated 5 out of 5áby advogado A Must buy
This is an excellent product. It's large, light, packs small and comes with its own stuff sack. Keep it in the car and its there whenever you need it. Excellent product. The only problem is that there tends to be static charges and the kids get zapped every now and then - not a big deal but it annoys my wife so I thought I'd mention it.

Rated 5 out of 5áby Alpacafun Parasheet
I purchased this for a recent trip to the beach. When I received I was very skeptical it would do the job and almost returned it. I decided to give it a try and it turned out to be a hit. It is so compact and easy to carry. Great when traveling by plane. Wet sand in the corners kept the blanket in place and it was plenty big. My only complaint is the storage sack frayed and fell part after the first wash. Since it is attached to the blanket (again another handy feature so you never have to go searching for it), I will be exchanging it for one that is hopefully better sewn together.

AWESPME! This item is a must have at the beach... It is lightweight, takes up just a corner of your beachbag and brushes clean easily... And its large enough for my husband and I to both enjoy! I have 2 and ordered a third for a friend at the beach ! The kids love them too!!

I just love this product for the white sands of Destin, Florida. It never gets hot, the sand does not stick, and the pockets hold sand so it does not blow away. It fits in a small pouch for easy transport to and from the beach.
An all around great product!

Rated 5 out of 5áby pickymamajones love love love
I love, love, love this item. We have used it for so many things since getting it last summer. Of course we took it camping with us and used it for the obvious picnic/beach blanket, but we also found it handy in our camping trailer to make a 'curtain' to separate our sleeping side of the camper from where our daughter sleeps so that when we came in to bed after she was asleep, our lights and movements wouldn't wake her. We have used it to keep pet fur off of furniture (short term), and it saved us when we had no power for 4 days after that October storm! Having a 2 year old and no power/heat=disaster! We had to stay close to the fireplace to stay warm, and couldn't use the 'playroom' because it was too cold. We rescued some toys and made a great 'tent' in the dining room near the fireplace and 'camped' in it, had tea parties in it, you name it!
