Whoever came up with this beach blanket was SMART! It's by far the most versatile, well designed, compact beach blanket I have ever owned. I have also used it for a picnic table cover, backseat of my car seat cover and sun shade. AWESOME!

Grand Trunk Parasheet Pros and Cons
Pros: lightweight, packable, 7 foot by 7 foot size good for two beach towels (cannot use with three), great stitching and quality, ripstop nylon is high grade, nice colors, can be used as DIY hammock for those with suspension knowledge, built in sand pockets and eye loops on each corner. Cons: material is so lightweight that it must have ground anchors (e.g tent stakes) or sand at corners without exception. Material will absorb suntan lotion and oils which cannot wash out. Suntan/baby oil in material is very visible. No grommets, only cloth loops at four corner, question if strong wind under parasheet will tear corner loop. Could use eye loops in center of each side for additional staking options.
