This picnic backpack is great. I've been looking for one for a while, and this one is packed full of utensils and cutlery for two people, and even has a cork screw and salt and pepper shakers. The picnic blanket is quite bulky and takes up a surprising amount of space. It's heavy duty though, and not the thin ones. The only negative is there is no space for anything else, once all the utensils are packed away, it may or may not be a problem. It's not for us as my husband is carrying the food.
