Rumpl Ground Cover
Whether you’re hitting the park, the beach, or the trails one thing is certain, as far as your bum is concerned, a towel just isn’t going to cut it. Let’s face it, no one wants to picnic on a beach towel, and padded mats are unwieldy and inconvenient. This Rumpl Ground Cover on the other hand has us wondering where it has been all of our lives. It’s easy to pack and store and, more importantly, it’s comfortable! Now this isn’t going to give you the same sort of cushion as a full size inflatable air mattress or roll up pad, but for a day trip it’s just the thing. It ticks all of the boxes. It’s convenient and easy, it keeps you off the ground, and it offers a lot more comfort than a beach towel, and it’s comfortably sized. It’s waterproof and easy to clean. So if you’re headed on a hike, to the beach, or to a concert, etc, this is just the thing to keep you off the ground.
