My whole family thinks this parasheet is terrific. The little sack it folds up into is lightweight and easy to carry. The sand pockets anchor it easily on the beach no matter how windy the day is. It stays cool and dries very fast. At the end of the day you just stuff it back into its sack, where it's all ready for the next trip. Compared with the cost of other large beach blankets, I found the parasheet at about $40 to be a very good value.Read More
