Once upon a time, roughing it in the great outdoors meant just that, roughing it. A tent, sleeping bag and a pan to cook with over the fire was all you really needed to go camping.

The Matador Mini Pocket Blanket

When you are hiking, camping or traveling, bag space is a hot commodity. Making sure you bring all the necessities without making your bag too bulky or heavy to carry can be a challenge. Matador helps you solve this problem with its innovative products like the Mini Pocket Blanket.

Enjoy the Open Road on Your Terms

For most of us, time in the car is “me time.” You can listen to that podcast you’re captivated by, blast that pop song and sing along at the top of your lungs or listen to the next chapter in that biography e-book you’re almost finished. A road trip only amplifies those opportunities. So, next time you’re traveling by road, take the wheel and take control. Opt for a rental car on your next vacation, rather than a rideshare, taxi or public transportation, and enjoy the open road on your own terms.
