Outdoor outings are all fun and games until it is time to sit on the cold, wet ground. An ideal gift for the outdoor loving foodie in your life, help them stay dry while enjoying their meal at the beach, a park, the grass, a concert, hiking or camping with the portable, waterproof Paryvara All Purpose Mat.
WHY YOU NEED A PARYVARA ALL PURPOSE MAT
No outdoor outing would be complete without an impromptu picnic, refreshments or a little break to stop and enjoy the scenery along the way. Whether its’ a day at the beach, park, or anywhere else you decide is the perfect place for some al fresco dining, keeping an all-purpose mat in the car or in your backpack allows you to dine anywhere at anytime. But nothing beats a good outdoor picnic or bottle of wine like consuming it in beautiful outdoor surroundings. Seasoned impromptu picnic throwers, beachgoers, hikers, and tailgaters keep a blanket or mat in the car just for this purpose. But since you eat on this mat, there is a good reason to be selective in its’ choice, because not just any tarp or blanket will really do the job of keeping you dry. We recently tried the Paryvara All Purpose Mat.
PARYVARA ALL PURPOSE MAT FEATURES
- GENEROUSLY SIZED: It folds out to 79”x57”, or about 6 and a half feet by 4 and three-quarters feet. For scale, larger than a beach blanket and big enough for adults to sit on and stay dry or for a family to contain their a picnic feast.
- FOLDS COMPACTLY: It folds down to a compact 10”x14″ to fit into a backpack or Mommy bag for use at the park, and can be stashed away in the car.
- RE-FOLDS EASILY: Unlike many picnic and beach mats, it easily re-folds back up after use and fits neatly back into its’ built-in case
- CARRYING CASE: It comes with a carrying case flap sewn directly onto to the mat and there are a velcro enclosure strap and shoulder straps to easily hold and carry the mat
- SAND-FREE: Keep you sand-free while eating or sitting at the beach
- PRETTY COLOR SCHEME: Attractive color scheme looks good with picnic baskets or casual dishes for a more formal picnic
- STAYS PUT: Unlike blankets or tarps, the Paryvara All Purpose Mat is thick enough that the wind doesn’t blow it away and it stays put.
- WATERPROOF: Waterproof/water resistant layer stops water or any liquid going through it and keeps you and your clothes dry from wet grass, sand or dirt.
- MOLD RESISTANT: A useful feature on a mat that often gets wet and is not always fully cleaned off after use, it is mold and mildew resistant, even if you accidentally forget about it in the car for a few days.
- EASY CLEAN UP: It is easy to clean with soap and water, and if necessary it can be machine-washed
- POCKETS: There are pockets on both sides when folded like a carrying case, and these pockets fold out to a privacy shield while the mat is in use for keeping your wallet, glasses, sunscreen, bug spray, hidden treats, or other items you may need.
Here are the pockets when the mat is folded, they can be used to carry picnic items or drinks while walking or traveling
Once the mat is folded out, the pocket becomes one double-width pocket that can conceal a wallet, keys, or secret dessert treats!
- Sturdy, thick material and stitching
USES FOR THE PARYVARA ALL PURPOSE MAT
OUTDOOR FOOD & DRINK OPPORTUNITIES
It seems like each season has good reason to sit outside and enjoy some food and drink. Hiking, camping, picnics, summer activities, and leaf trips to name a few.
- In Spring everyone is anxious to sit outside and enjoy the warm weather, perhaps watch a ballgame at the park.
- Who doesn’t love getting takeout from your favorite beachside seafood shack and enjoying it while sitting on the beach?
- Winter has snowmen and hot cocoa with nowhere to sit but on the snow.
- Here in New England, the turning of the leaves is a great excuse to hop in the car, drive along a scenic route to catch the fall foliage bright colors, or to hike your favorite trail.
- Attending Shakespeare in the Park or outdoor concerts.
- Any of these events often include a good bottle of wine or a thermos of toasty hot cocoa or mulled apple cider to warm up in the crisp fall air
OUTSIDE STUDY BREAKS
It is often easier to find a quiet place to study outside, but not so easy to find a dry place to sit. Find the perfect shady spot under a tree, take the Paryvara All Purpose Mat out of your backpack and spread out your books, laptop, tablet, and notebooks and sit with a cup of coffee and study without getting yourself, your books or your laptop wet.
EATING IN THE CAR
Some people do not want drinks or food to spill in their new car, and with good reason. But if you must eat in a new car, putting down a waterproof mat while eating, or putting a waterproof mat down in the car while tailgating can keep the car clean.
WHY YOUR FAVORITE FOODIE WILL LOVE IT
It has been raining for days here in New England, which makes the ground and leaves too wet to sit on when taking a picnic break on hikes or walks. The Paryvara All Purpose Mat kept me, my clothes and my picnic basket items dry with its’ waterproof lining, and despite the wind, it did not flip over or kick up like a tarp or blanket tends to do. It folded right back up after use and it was easy to brush off any dirt or debris from the ground. It is comfortable to lounge upon and doesn’t make lots of crinkly noises when sitting on it, and it doesn’t stick to the skin or attract dirt.
I love how the vibrant mat colors look with my picnic dishware and serving basket! The Paryvara All Purpose Mat is easy to dress up or down for informal or fancier outdoor eating events!
The Paryvara All Purpose Mat is ideal for keeping in the car or in a travel bag, this is a great addition for camping, hiking, picnics, the beach, the park or the pool. The waterproof top keeps you dry while sitting on the grass, dirt, sand or anywhere you do not want to sit directly upon the ground. It is attractive enough to make a lovely tablescape for a fancy picnic while still useful enough for camping, hiking or the beach. I really like how compactly it folds back down for easy carrying and storage, even in a backpack. I also like that it is much more attractive than the typical picnic or beach blankets, and it makes for a very pretty picnic!
