Amazing. Somehow kept everything fairly clean while staying clean itself. It does not absorb moisture. Sand does not stick, but rolls / blows right off. The thing is durable. Did fine with our chair legs digging into it and our dogs nails before they learned to keep off. It packs up teeny and super light. I thought it might be hard stuffing back in the bag, but that was not the case. Went in just about as easily as taking it out.
It’s water proof and it was so nice to take to the beach! We went to the Bahamas on a cruise and every stop they had beach chairs for sale and we didn’t want to pay for that and laying on just a towel still get wet and the sand sticks. But, we loved that the sand just brushed off and it was waterproof and the material didn’t make us hotter when we laid on it. It was large enough for my family of 4. The first time, I thought it would be annoying to put it back in thinking we had to fold it or something but you don’t. We shook off the sand together and you can just stuff it in the pouch and it all fits! It came with extra stakes which was nice because we lost a few in deeper sand. Highly recommended!
First, this is huge! Big enough for 3 or 4 people but, do not let that scare you off as you can simply fold in whatever you don't want to use. I tested this first in my wet backyard and no water seeped through. Then, we took it to Daytona Beach last weekend and it proved itself to be a great purchase.
I can't describe how much I love this thing. I keep it in the car and use it every single week! I bought it for the beach and it totally eliminates so much space-hogging. It packs up small enough u can put it in a purse! Dropped food and drinks on it, washed right out! Beach stuff! I couldn’t even relax on the beach because so many people kept coming up asking where I got this!
