5 Reasons to Bring a Waterproof Blanket to Your Kid’s Games

5 Reasons to Bring a Waterproof Blanket to Your Kid’s Games
As parents, we want to be there for our children and show support in all aspects of their lives, including their sports games. Whether your child is playing soccer, baseball, football, or lacrosse, attending their games usually means spending time outdoors. While we’d like to hope that most games will be in beautiful weather, that’s not always the case. Weather can be unpredictable, but that doesn’t mean you should skip your kid’s game! 

Luckily, by adding a few strategic accessories to your game day bag, you’ll ensure that your time at the field is comfortable (and dry), no matter what Mother Nature has in store. If you’re still skeptical, consider the following five reasons to bring a waterproof blanket to your kid’s game. 

What Makes a Blanket Waterproof?

There are so many different options for blankets online, but not all of them are created equal. Sure, that fuzzy fleece option might look like it would provide you with superior warmth and comfort, but what happens when it rains? What happens when there’s dew on the ground during an early spring game? Most blankets would quickly soak up the moisture, getting you wet while making the blanket heavy and uncomfortable. 

At Pretty Rugged, we waterproof our blankets using innovative technology called RuggedTex™. is our proprietary technology that gives our blankets a nylon waterproof backing. These one-of-a-kind blankets have a completely waterproof barrier, so water runs right off it. This provides you with unbeatable protection from the elements, whether you’re at your kid’s sporting event or out for a picnic. 

The Best Reasons to Bring a Waterproof Blanket to Your Kid’s Sports Games

As a parent, how many times have you sat in the bleachers cheering on your kids only for it to start drizzling? Yes, it might be a little frustrating at first, but over time it gets cold, uncomfortable, and you can feel your body’s immune system start to give in. Eventually, your clothes are soaked and you’re counting down the minutes left in the game. However, if you have a waterproof blanket with you, you’ll remained focused on cheering on your children without suffering from the unbearable discomfort some types of weather cause. Still not convinced? Consider some additional reasons to bring a waterproof blanket to your kid’s games.
  1. Unbeatable Warmth

When it’s cold and rainy, a blanket that doesn’t absorb water is essential to staying warm, dry, and cozy. But that doesn’t mean waterproof blankets are only for bad weather. Even on a sunny day, sitting on cold, damp grass can be uncomfortable. A waterproof blanket supplies insulation from the ground, keeping you and your family warm and comfortable, regardless of where you’re sitting. Rain or shine, waterproof blankets are a great game day accessory
  1. Protection from the Elements

Weather can be unpredictable, and a waterproof blanket can help protect you and your family from rain, snow, sleet, and wind. Whether you're shielding yourself from a light drizzle or a heavy downpour, a waterproof blanket will keep you dry and comfortable. Just make sure you choose an option that’s 100% waterproof, like the blankets at Pretty Rugged. Water resistant options aren’t going to give you too much protection, especially if you’re outside for more than a few minutes. 
  1. Comfort for the Whole Family

Attending your kid’s sports game can be a long and tiring experience, especially for younger children. However, cheering on their siblings is a wonderful way for the whole family to bond and support each other. Luckily, you can keep your kids comfortable as their root for their big brother or sister by bringing a waterproof blanket. Waterproof blankets provide a comfortable spot to sit or lie down, giving your family a place to relax and unwind regardless of how long the game lasts.
  1. Ongoing Durability

Unlike traditional blankets, Pretty Rugged’s waterproof blankets are designed to withstand the elements. They're made of durable materials that can hold up to repeated use, making them a worthwhile investment for families who spend a lot of time outdoors. We created our blankets to withstand whatever comes their way, so they remain comfortable and keep giving you protection for the long haul. 
  1. Easy to Care for and Clean 

Another advantage of Pretty Rugged’s waterproof blankets is their ease of care. Thanks to our innovative technology, small spills or messes can be wiped clean with a damp cloth or sponge. However, for truly monumental messes, we also made our waterproof blankets machine washable. This makes them a practical choice for families with young children who may be prone to spills and accidents. And yes, we’ve spilled everything on our blankets… so we know they’ll come clean. Just make sure that you follow the instructions for washing—wash them by themselves on delicate and tumble dry on low/no heat (no dryer balls). 

When you’re ready to find the perfect waterproof blanket to take with you to your kid’s games, look no further than Pretty Rugged.
