Emergency Protection in all weather
52" x 84"
The Emergency Thermal Blanket is about 1/2 mil thick which is thinner than a sheet of paper. It is strong and tear resistant. When a tear does develop, however it will easily run. This blanket has a high radiation value for body heat but aside from this has no insulation value. But it is very light and compact and could be easily placed in a back-pack or glove compartment of a car. As it's waterproof, it would do a good job as a ground cloth when laying out sleeping bags or a tent. In an emergency it would keep the wind and rain off and supply some warmth but would not be a good substitute for a regular blanket or quilt.
