Comparison of Five Picnic Blankets

Helping you find the perfect picnic blanket for you

Finding the perfect picnic blanket can be time consuming, so we’ve done a bit of homework and have put together a comparison of five picnic blankets on the Australian market. We’re all busy and there are so many choices out there. Finding a quality picnic blanket that lasts the test of time is a good investment for any outdoor enthusiast. No one wants to add picnic blankets to landfill unnecessarily, when a little bit of research could help guide you down the path to the perfect picnic blanket for you.

There are a few things to consider:

How often will you use it?

Would you like to throw it in the washing machine to wash it?

How big would you like it to be?

Will it be exposed to excess sunlight?

Do you plan to sit on it for extended periods of time?

Are you looking for a rug that withstands the tough Aussie sun over many years?

Are you looking for a picnic blanket to outlive your swimsuit?

With all of these things in mind we’ve put together the below comparison of five picnic blankets on the market in Australia.
