TowelMate's Ultimate Beach Towel does a little more than keep you dry and give you a clean spot on the sand. It includes pockets for a removable pillow to make you more comfortable and places to store your gadgets, sunscreen, or whatever else you want to keep hidden (or at least off of the sand).
While nothing is stopping a thief from just stealing the whole towel, with everything hidden you've got a better chance of avoiding an interest in your stuff altogether. But beyond that, the towel's compartments offer a good place to store your things so they don't get covered in sand. This is a good idea, but it would be nice if there were a few simple styles to choose from. The current selection over at Amazon isn't all that aesthetically appealing.
