Draper 42987 Picnic Rug
Advantages: Price. Soft and fleecy. Waterproof backing. Light to carry. Rolls up small. Handle.
Disadvantages: Would be nice if it was a bit bigger.
It's been lovely here the past few days with summer finally arriving and so the kids and I have been making the most of it by being in the garden - and so the picnic rugs have been out, and among them the Draper 42987 Picnic Rug. I have owned the Draper 42987 Picnic Rug for about two years and it's been out on loads of occasions over that time. When I initially bought the rug it cost me about £15.00, but it is now on sale on Amazon for just £9.26, which is obviously a pretty good deal.
The Draper 42987 Picnic Rug is a large picnic rug that is plenty big enough for a couple to sit on for a picnic. The dimensions are 117 cm x 133 cm and so it is a rectangular shape that affords to a group sitting together. However, the really nice thing about the blanket is that it is really light weight (120g) and also rolls up really small - and so it's not a pain to have to carry around at all. When the rug is rolled up, there is a handle which makes carrying the rug even easier - although I do think it would be nice if it came with a little carrying case (which it doesn't).
The rug itself is a checkered design made up of red, white and blue. There is nothing particularly that stands out about the design of this rug - but having said that, it looks perfectly nice and acceptable and is very traditional, which appeals to me. The rug has a nice feel to it because it is quite soft and fleecy, and because it's quite thin it doesn't have a tendency to get us really hot when we're sat on it. A nice thing is that there is a waterproof sheet on the back of the rug and so the rug is kept dry, even if the grass is a little bit damp.
Overall, I think this is a good picnic rug and it's something that I would recommend for couples. It would be nice to have a larger option for a rug so that it would be big enough for a family of four.
Summary: Recommended for couples.
