Nemo Equipment Victory Picnic Outdoor Blanket (XL Model)

I picked up a Nemo Equipment blanket with a waterproof underside and a soft felt-like top for outdoor concerts, lounging in a park or at the beach and perfect for car camping. It’s huge. It has corner loops that you can peg down to keep in one place. It rolls up nice. It’s 7 feet by 7 feet… but I’m going to measure it since it seems bigger since I’m 6″1′ and it seems like a 10 x 10 to me. It’s a great quality blanket.

I’m buying a van in a couple of weeks and I picked it up for the van to be an outdoor carpet as well as bringing to lounge on in the summer at parks or a campsite.

I picked it up for $149 down from $199.

Packs

Purchased a pack for Noah for our trip.  He needed a good little pack for travel that can be used as a carry on.  This little pack from MEC will be good for him.  It’s a 24L pack and also can be used with a hydration system that can go inside for hiking.  His is the MEC Trail 24 Daypack.   430g this bag is perfect for him and his smaller frame.

 

Below is the MEC Flair 60 Backpack for Chantal.  This 60L pack is perfect for a weeks worth of gear and the great thing about this pack is that there is 3 different ways to get inside to your things without always going down via the top.  So you get at your gear from the sides and the front.  Lots of pockets in this waterproof bag.  This pack is designed for women.
