The Nemo Victory Blanket is a premium product that has more features than the average beach blanket. In fact, it’s really a camping blanket that also can be used on the beach.

With more protection from ground moisture and sharp objects, the Victory is intended for different types of terrains. This versatility is evident in the price. The good news is that it’s lightweight and compact enough in folded form for you to grab it and go anywhere.

This new-generation, versatile piece of outdoor equipment is an ideal accessory for hanging out at the beach, having a barbecue in the backyard on the fourth of July, or taking an overnight camping trip on a Saturday.

Nemo Victory Picnic Blanket

Quality Worth Paying For

The four-person Nemo Victory Picnic Blanket is a great competitor for the JJ Cole blanket and Zomake blanket. Similar, in general, but specifically the Victory is one of the best mats in terms of quality.

It might actually be the best. These are things we’re starting to expect from Nemo, a company that also has more sustainable production practices.

It combines comfort, durability, portability, and a great choice of patterns.

You get several size options that allow you not to settle for just anything. The bigger size works great for those who plan on using it with other family members, while the smaller size is ideal for a couple (or a company of you and a furry friend).

The fun surprise is the hidden velcro stash pocket designed to keep your valuables secure. You can store your headphones, keys, or even your phone if you’re not in a crowded place. Whatever you choose to keep in your pocket, chances are it’ll remain safe and sound.

Construction and Design

The acrylic flannel top is hands-down our favorite feature of this picnic blanket. It’s soft enough to let you nap in the rays of the sun or have a picnic with your loved ones on a Sunday. You don’t have to worry about your child’s sensitive skin becoming irritated either — the blanket is gentle enough to accommodate his delicate skin.

If you’re want to bring it with you to the camping site, it’ll fit perfectly into the tent too. You can walk, roll, and even jump on it from time to time and expect it to hold up well. No need to tell your kids off when they feel super hyper and need to release their energy.

The built-in padding is another element we appreciated having. It protects you from the sticks and stones on the ground so that you can spend hours laying down on your blanket without experiencing any discomfort.

The added bonus is the waterproof bottom layer that keeps the moisture at bay (and away from your blanket). You can accidentally spill red juice on the Nemo Victory Picnic Blanket and rest assured that the liquid particles won’t get absorbed by it. And although this outdoor accessory isn’t technically machine washable, you’re free to wipe the droplets away with a damp cloth without being afraid of it leaving a mark.

As for the extra features, we liked the small pocket and the corner loops attached to the blanket. The former gives you the opportunity to leave your small tote home and stash your cellphone, keys, and wallet inside the pocket instead. The latter makes it easy to stake down the blanket when the weather gets stormy.

The beach blanket comes with integrated straps that help you keep the banket wrapped up when you’re not using it. They also come in handy when you need to pack your blanket in a compact shape that’ll fit in your beach tote or the trunk of your car.

Final Thoughts

Aside from a few minor flaws like the static shock you can get from the flannel-like material and the fact that you’ll have to wash it manually, there isn’t anything to complain about when it comes to Nemo Victory Picnic Blanket. It’s got an aesthetically pleasing design, a sturdy construction, and a few extra features that make it worth the relatively premium price tag.

We recommend you check it out if you’re on the lookout for a soft blanket your entire family can chill on when at the beach, in the woods, or at a music festival. The price is steep compared to others, but the quality and clean conscience it offers matches up with that. It is, maybe, the best beach mat and outdoor blanket you can get right now.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions about Nemo Victory Picnic Blanket

What kind of blanket is best for picnics?

A good picnic blanket is lightweight and durable at the same time. It’s also preferably waterproof or at least water-resistant. Here are some of our favorite blankets we recommend you to check out:

How do you clean a picnic blanket?

You can either throw your picnic blanket in the washing machine on the cotton setting or wash it manually. If you choose to get your hands dirty, add cool water into the tub, add some laundry detergent for stains, and let the blanket sit in the soapy water for half an hour before you start washing it by hand. Rinse it until the water runs clear and let it air dry.

What can I use instead of a beach blanket?

If you aren’t planning on buying a beach blanket — or you haven’t had the chance to decide which ones would accommodate you best — you can use a fitted sheet or a large towel. They won’t be as comfortable to use on a sandy surface, but they’ll do the trick of helping prevent you from getting your butt and legs dirty.

What do you bring to a picnic?

Apart from picnic blanket, you can also bring a picnic basket, a portable picnic table, and food and refreshments. To create a cozier atmosphere, consider also bringing fresh flowers, nice silverware, and a bluetooth speaker. But most importantly, don’t forget to bring your good mood.
