Good news! We are now 75% through with winter! I mean, probably. I mostly just made that number up, but it sounds about right. Spring comes in March doesn't it? (At least for those of us who didn't anger God by cheating at football and giving the world Ben Affleck.) So just like I'm preparing for a random, undetermined catastrophic event with my bug out bag, I'm starting to prepare for spring by hoarding sunscreen (still on discount at the drugstore!), spending hours perusing ladies' swimwear magazines, and getting one of these Matador Pocket Blankets.

Matador has condensed a comfy, water-repellent, puncture-resistant, 55" x 44" blanket into a 4.8-ounce square small enough to, oh yeah, slide in your pocket. Taking an impromptu stroll on the beach with a girl who mentions she would also take an impromptu roll in the hay, if only you had a smooth and roomy respite from the sand for bodily crevice protection? Oh hey, Miss Queen of Brilliant Ideas, lookee what I just found in my pocket. A full-size blanket with lightly weighted corners for maximal coverage even on breezy nights!

And it's not even in the side you were asking about. That side's just happy to see you.

The Matador Pocket Blanket makes for a hassle-free companion to parks, concerts, and on hikes where you don't want to drag along a lot of heavy, cumbersome gear. It's generally large enough to accommodate 2 people in the supine position, or 4 people in the missionary position. The blanket comes with a pouch and an "easy pack" printed pattern that assists with folding it back to its starting size for storage.
