Are They Actually Waterproof?

A good question and one that someone would automatically respond yes to. However, it's important to look at who the company is selling the blankets and how the blanket is waterproof. Blankets with an exposed plastic layer are of course going to be waterproof, but who likes laying on a tarp on their bed? The highest quality waterproof blankets are come with an internal waterproof layer or seal (see here). With an entire layer dedicated to waterproofing the blanket you can be sure that what your getting is quality and that it works. So to actually answer the question - yes, if the blanket is quality. Just make sure when you do purchase the blanket you are sure to wash it correctly.

They can also offer peace of mind, allowing you to fully enjoy the experience without worrying about potential messes.
