ive heard that these emergency blankets were legit so it was time i got one in case anything ever went down. against better judgement i opened it immediately to see what it was like. it makes you feel like a weirdo that is waiting for aliens to abduct you (no offense if you believe in aliens and you are waiting). honestly though, it wasnt to bad folding it back up. it was like a more difficult pack towel at best. hopefully i do not have to use this blanket anytime soon or at least in a situation in which there is a distinct possibility that i may die. buy it. its extremely innexpensive in comparison to how much your life is worth.
I will always bring one when hiking/camping to the 2nd highest peak and the coldest part of the Philippines (Mt. Pulag) where the temperature can drop to negative degree and it's always raining. We almost got hypothermia when we got caught on the rain, and we didn't have one of these.
its always in my e-kit and should be in everyones...it sucks carrying this along everywhere if you are watching your packing weight but its priceless if you actually need it...i have used it once and it really does help...at least when paired with a sleeping bag...
Better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it
Small enough to fit in your glove box without taking much space at all. Got one for the wife too and feel a little bit better knowing this is in the car for emergencies. About as big as coffee mug folded up and thin.
Pack it if you don't have other gear to replace it
I make sure I have this tiny thing with me whenever I'm not packing my overnight gear. It's weighs near to nothing, packs small, and serves a purpose that would be deemed priceless if you were ever caught out in the elements unprepared.
I use this product primarily for my ground sheet. It protects my sleeping pad and bivy from sharp objects and prevents ground moisture from seeping up into my sleeping area. Has many uses and is very lightweight.
