    This is an excellent and packable emergency blanket designed to accommodate two people. Much more durable than the cheap mylar blankets, this blanket is more resistant to tears and punctures, though one should still be careful when handling it. Not a bivy, this is a rectangular sheet that offers tremendous flexibility. These are the features I especially like:

    * Large size – Measuring a full 5 X 8 feet, this is a large sheet that offer the flexibility to shelter two people together. With this size, you can also use it to create an emergency shelter, use for signaling, collect water (either from rain or a condensation trap), etc. I prefer the larger two-person size as it gives me more options for its use. I can always cut it down slightly to use the material for other things in addition to sheltering.

    * Durability – This need not be a single use item. Unlike cheaper emergency blankets, this is tear resistant material that will still reflect body heat. (up to 90% according to the manufacturer) While it is still very thin, a minor tear or hole does not spell the end of its usefulness. It can be re-folded and placed back into its bag.

    * Color – Reflective on the inside, it is a highly visible red on the outside.

    * Instructions – I really like that instructions for use are actually printed on the sheet itself: Nothing to get lost or misplaced, the instructions are right there and they cover more than just sheltering from the cold. This alone could be a lifesaver for some.

    * Reusable bag – The bag that this sheet comes in is tough and resealable. Not only does it allow you to fold and store the blanket, but you can also use it to collect water, use as a sucking wound bandage, etc.

    One doesn’t need to be completely lost and in dire peril to use this; there are many circumstances whether on a day hike or longer excursion where this piece of kit could come in handy to make you more comfortable, safer, or more secure. Compact and durable, this blanket weighs only a few ounces; as a disaster preparedness item, this belongs in your day hike pack, camping gear, and car and home kits. Highly recommended.

    Actually used in the field- works exactly as described, October 17, 2011
    By 

    I don’t normally write reviews but after reading the inane 1-star review above I felt compelled to set the record straight. I recently returned from a 10-day backcountry trip where this handy blanket saved our butts multiples times so I can vouch 100% that it works exactly as described. The first time my GF and I were caught on a mountain during a very windy storm with no visibility and had to hunker down between some boulders for about an hour. The blanket is in fact easily large enough for two people and protected us from the rain and wind until we could move on. The second (and third, and fourth, and fifth, etc) times was when our tent fly developed a massive 1-foot tear and we had to drape the blanket between the fly and the tent to keep out the rain at night. The polyurethane proved to be quite durable and never ripped despite being tied down at the corners and placed under tension with the tent poles (which previous generation mylar blankets would never be able to handle). The comment about the lack of a fastener is just ridiculous. The actors in the picture are simply holding the edges closed from the inside with their hands, as anyone huddled under the blanket would have to do to keep out drafts. Nowhere on the packaging or description is a fastener mentioned, and no emergency blanket on the market includes a fastener. To be be truly useful, such a fastener would have to extend the length of the blanket, which would increased the cost and weight of the product while providing dubious utility. If you’re looking for circumferential protection, buy an emergency bivy sac. In short, I would never go hiking or camping without one of these in my pack, and you shouldn’t either.

    This review is from: Survive Outdoors Longer Survival Blanket (Misc.)
    I’m a little stocky — okay I’m a lot stocky. The 99 cent space blankets don’t cut it for a cover-up. However, here’s a tip if that’s all you have — take off your coat or sweater, wrap it around your torso, and then put your coat back on . . . at least it won’t shred quite as fast. The SOL 1-2 person blanket, on the other hand, is big enough to actually wrap up in, keep the wind and snow off you, and probably buy you about 25-30 degrees of temperature protection. Let’s face it, if you go out in a mid-west winter in yoga pants and a hoodie and get stranded, you are pretty well done for. This will NOT save your bacon in that scenario. On the other hand, it just might keep you alive long enough for someone with a vehicle to come along and save you. If you are actually pretty well prepared for the weather, but things get a bit worse than expected, this will help you a lot. Remember: First, don’t die. Second, try not to lose any body parts to frostbite. Third, if you do something dumb and live through it — make sure you, and everyone you know, never does that dumb thing again. A very good, inexpensive, first step is to have one of these PER PERSON, in your camping gear, bug-out bag, car bag, etc.
