Buying a Waterproof Outdoor Blanket - What You Should Consider

When it comes to buying a waterproof outdoor blanket, there are several factors to consider. These blankets are practical and can be useful in various situations, whether camping, picnicking or just needing something to keep you warm and dry on a rainy day. Here are some things to keep in mind when shopping for a waterproof blanket.

1. Usage

The most important aspect to factor in: what will you use the blanket for? Are you looking for a waterproof picnic blanket, a blanket for your dog or are you going out camping and hiking for a long period? Some waterproof blankets are specifically made to cover yourself. This means they will have soft outer layers on both sides while other blankets are made for activities such as a picnic, for people to sit on. Those blankets will have a waterproof layer on the bottom side. Waterproof blankets made for camping will often be heavier as they require more durable and warmer materials, such as fleece or down.

2. Material

One of the most important factors to consider when buying a waterproof blanket is the materials it's made from. Many waterproof blankets are made from synthetic materials like polyester or nylon, which tend to be durable and resistant to water. Other blankets may be made from natural materials like wool or cotton that have been treated to be water-resistant. It's important to consider the material that best suits your needs and preferences.

3. Size

Another important factor to consider when buying a waterproof blanket is its size. Waterproof blankets come in a variety of sizes, ranging from small lap blankets to large, family-sized quilts. Consider the intended use of the blanket when determining what size is appropriate. If you're planning to use the blanket for camping or hiking, a smaller size may be more convenient. However, if you plan to use the blanket for family outings or picnics, a larger size may be necessary to accommodate everyone.

4. Thickness

Closely related to the previous point, keep in mind how thick the blanket has to be. If you want to use a picnic blanket on more uneven or harder underground, then the blanket's fabric needs to be thicker and will often have a couple more layers. The same applies to other types of waterproof blankets, especially if you're looking at waterproof camping blankets.

The thickness of a blanket will have an impact on the weight and how much space the blanket occupies. These attributes are important to keep in mind if you're looking to buy a blanket for camping or hiking because you will be carrying that weight with you the whole trip. It also means the blanket will be harder to fold, the thicker it gets.

5. Weight

The weight of the blanket is also an important consideration. Depending on the intended use, you may want a lightweight blanket that's easy to carry or a heavier blanket that provides more warmth. Keep in mind that heavier blankets may be more difficult to pack, so consider the weight and size of the blanket about your intended use.

6. Waterproofing

Of course, the most important factor to consider when buying a waterproof blanket is its ability to repel water. Look for a blanket that has been specifically designed to be waterproof or water-resistant. Some blankets may be treated with a water-resistant coating, while others may have a waterproof barrier like a laminate or membrane. Choosing a blanket that has been tested and proven effective at repelling water is important.

7. Durability

Durability is another important factor to consider when buying a waterproof blanket. Look for a blanket that can withstand frequent use, washing, and exposure to the elements. Synthetic materials like polyester and nylon tend to be more durable than natural materials like wool, which may be more prone to wear and tear over time.

8. Price

Finally, consider the price of the waterproof blanket. Prices can vary widely depending on the size, materials, and features of the blanket. Set a budget for yourself and look for a blanket that meets your needs while also fitting within your budget.
