If your travel plans include outdoor activities, the Matador Pocket Blanket is the perfect accessory. The extremely compact blanket can easily be thrown in a purse, backpack, car or your pocket.


Once expanded, the blanket measures 63 by 44 inches and is large enough for two people to relax or more to sit. It is made of water-resistant and puncture-resistant material. It boasts a pattern designed to make packing easy — just fold along the dotted lines. The corners are weighted to ensure the blanket won’t easily blow away in the wind. Matador also offers the Matador Mini. Measuring 44 by 28 inches, this design is meant for one to relax or two people to sit. It comes with all the same features as the Matador Pocket Blanket, just slightly smaller. Either option is ideal for hiking, park visits, picnics, festivals, concerts and at the beach.


The Matador Pocket Blanket starts at $29.99, and the Matador mini costs $19.99. Purchase the blanket directly from the Matador website, or through Amazon. Shipping is free from the Matador website on all U.S. orders. Free international shipping is available on purchases of more than $100.

Make time for more than a mouthwater- ing Italian meal in these three cities.
