It is always cold November, but this year is warm.
But it finally got cold.
Today's topic is about picnic sheets.

How to choose a picnic sheet
I choose size (the number of people), size at the time of folding, functionality (thickness · waterproof), this as a standard.
I will introduce a picnic sheet that I often use.
Coleman Picnic Seat Mini
Size：90 cm x 140 cm (folded state：12 cm x 12 cm x 33 cm)
Good：feel, thickness, less moisture from the ground, easy to clean up.
Bad：It gets hot in midsummer, Big size even if folded.
※ Because it is a picnic sheet that has been used for 4 years or more, it is not the current model.
Good point：The rubber belt when folded is convenient!
The bad point：I did not notice this until I used it, but in midsummer this dark color gets quite hot.
Coleman Picnic Sheet Petit
Size：60 cm x 95 cm (folded state：6.5 cm x 16 cm x 23 cm)
Good：feel, thickness, less moisture from the back, easy to clean up.
Bad：Thickness after folding
※ Because it is a picnic sheet that has been used for 3 years or more, it is not the current model.
Here is the size of the Coleman leisure seat mini even smaller.
Polypropylene picnic sheet
Size：60 cm x 90 cm (folded state：0.7 cm x 15.5 cm x 23.5 cm)
Good：Thin, light, small, It is usable without minding the moisture of the ground.
Bat：The unevenness of the ground is transmitted, it is weak to the wind.
About the optimal size of picnic sheet
The optimum size also changes depending on the purpose of use.
60cm x 90cm：2 people use if only sitting. If you want to open a lunch box, use it alone.
90cm x 140cm：3 persons for sitting alone. If you also put a lunch box, two people use.
In spring, we lie down under trees and the cherry blossoms we look up are the best!
See you at the next picnic!
