The FIDA Mat Lets You Enjoy the Outdoors Upright

I would spend many more days in the park or outside if only I had the FIDA Mat. The FIDA Mat is an ingenious design from Patrick Frey that acts as a picnic blanket with a backrest.

Most of us are content to make do with leaning on our arms or sitting on a pillow when we picnic, but not Patrick Frey. The FIDA Mat's backrest is strong enough to support the weight of a grown man, but it is still portable enough to fit into the backseat of your car or on your bus seat. The FIDA Mat is set for a spring release, so shelve your lawn chairs and start saving now. Stats for Supportive Picnic Seats Trending: Older & Average
