  1. A blanket that is oversized and can accommodate four when having a picnic. (50”x 70” works but we prefer a 50”x 80”)
  2. A blanket that dries quickly and can wick away moisture.
  3. A blanket that is warm even if it gets wet, (evening boat cruises, or a misty game day)
  4. A blanket that never sheds or pills. (keep your clothes free of lint and also your car seats)
  5. A blanket for your bare skin, soft to the touch when laying on the beach.
