Last week, Massachusetts company Monkey Bed officially launched their Urban Blanket Bag. A messenger bag with a built in blanket, the Monkey Bed bag ensures you are ready to enjoy that spell of sunshine in the park at a moment's notice. The urban bag style allows you to look equally stylish going from the park, beach or woods back into your everyday life in the concrete jungle.
The Monkey Bed Urban Blanket Bag currently comes in two style: The Seashore and the larger Esplanade. The Seashore features a 4-person blanket built into a minimalist messenger. With dimensions of 16"x11.5"x5", you will have plenty of room for a couple of beers, your computer in the 15" laptop sleeve, frisbee and other odds and ends.
The Esplanade features the same 4-person blanket in a larger messenger bag with 18"x14"x5.5" dimensions. You will be able to fit everything you need for the day, both in the city and on your urban adventure.
The Esplanade messenger bag comes with padded sleeves for 2 water or wine bottles. A neoprene pocket fits 3 quart size take-out containers or your 17" laptop. The urban blanket bag zips open completely flat for easy packing and unpacking.
Both messenger bags are made from a padded ballistic nylon construction, partially including recycled materials. The machine washable, zip-out fleece blankets have a water-resistant bottom and include corner rock pockets to keep your blanket put in the wind and hidden security pockets to store your cell phone or other valuables.
The Seashore Urban Blanket Bag from Monkey Bed retails for $79 and The Esplanade for $135. Both bags can be bought from the company website, certain retailers and now online at Campmor.
