I like this idea. I'm putting together a couple little survival packs (car, home, general winter, zombie apocalypse) and I wanted an emergency blanket for each. But that's just a little too much money to spend on those projects (and I can't choose between the zombie apocalypse kit and the general winter kit).

Has anyone tried and tested one of these? Are they as effective as the ones you get at the store? And does the duct tape make them significantly harder to pack up? (my zurvival kit has gotta be nice and small so i can still run!)

Thanks for the comment. It is a little hard to pack into a tight little package. But iy is good in a pinch and if you have enough bags you can use as a shelter. Video to follow.

This is an innovative idea however using this blanket out west is a more a hazard to your health than not having a blanket at all. I think I would rather be cold for one night before getting ripped apart by a bear. This is however a useful tool in those parts of the country that are bearless so to say.

-hi !, today is jan 7th, with the mid-term elections just over, the sides of the road are litter'd w/ ''vote for me signs - - check it out many of these signs are mylar bags
slipped over a bent wire frame, cleaning these things up is a environmentally
friendly, politically correct thing to do !!!
