Travelers are always in need of ways to maximize space. The DUO makes this a cinch by offering a bag and blanket in one. This fully functional bag and blanket is able to hold your goods during the day and keep you warm at night.


The DUO was designed primarily with the beach in mind. At first glance, it’s a simple tote bag great for holding your sunscreen, clothes and phone. Upon further inspection, you’ll find it also folds out into a full-sized blanket. You can lie on it, snuggle into it or use it as extra cover when going to bed.


When used as a bag it contains zippered pockets both inside and out to hold your necessities. To turn it into a blanket, simply unzip the sides and unfold in seconds. DUO is made with environmentally friendly materials including suede micro-polyester. It’s also water- and sand-resistant and machine washable.


As a bag, DUO measures 17 inches by 20 inches, but when unfolded it spreads to a whopping 68 inches by 40 inches, and is large enough for most average-sized people. DUO currently comes in multiple colors and designs and is set to retail for $65 a piece. Head over to the website to see more information on features and to get your hands on one before summer.

They suck up all the food and reduce the quality of the water, hurting more sensitive marine populations. Luckily for anglers, carp can grow to massive sizes and are a ton of fun to catch.
