Rated 3 out of 5 Light weight, easy to repackage
This is better than the old space-blankets I have seen because the material isn't as crinkly. It can be more easily folded up after use and put back into its package. It is light enough to carry for emergencies, but it doesn't take the place of a bivy sack because it would be difficult to use in windy conditions. The advertising suggests that it reflects 90% of body heat back. The problem is that it provides about zero insulation so it doesn't take the place of carrying extra warm clothing for emergencies. It has it's limitations, but is worth carrying because it weighs so little. Look up some YouTube videos for reviews on this product. Interesting.

Rated 4 out of 5 by erincs Seems great
A bit heavier and bulkier than I thought, but definitely durable feeling. I haven't had to use it yet, and hope I don't have to. But it would be a great ground tarp or shelter in a pinch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by macchickpro Protection again sun and dust at Burning Man
I taped it over the screen part of the LLBean King Dome tent on top of the bedroom and the side screens in the front room and that really helped in preventing the dust to get into the bedroom (we found out how much dust that could have been when we took the fly down). On top of that I put the reflective side out and it helped with keeping the heat out. They are really easy to cut to fit and are light and flexible to accommodate the tent's shape. I bought some extra once I used the one I had just in case I still needed the blankets as survival gear. I bought the 2 people ones because they are not a lot more bulky when packed than the small ones but you get much more usable coverage. Note that it took me almost 5 hours to cover the screens of the tent and the roof part was tricky. They also have survival tips written on the orange part that could be useful if needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ceasersalad Always carry one
I ended up using this as an emergency cover for our cooking area when we discovered that we had left the tarpaulin behind at base camp.
It proved invaluable in the rain and snow and now always carry one in my pack.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Customer19681968 Much better than the old mylar blankets
This blanket beats any old mylar space blanket. I have used it as a makeshift underquilt for my hammock. I have attached cords to the corners and made a functional tarp. I have used it as a ground cloth. It's tough and rip resistant, although it's fairly easy to puncture. Put a hole in it? Patch with duck tape.
Most pleasant surprise: it's quiet. No rattling like you get with a space blanket.
Nice product, AMK!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cricket808285 Works well
For just a few dollars, this item works well. I used it between my air mattress and my sleeping bag to reflect some of my body hear back to me, rather than losing it to the air mattress. It really helped. It is very thin so I was concerned that it would rip but it held up fine. I would recommend it.l

Rated 4 out of 5 by 100percentguarantee Just as described
It can fit two adults maybe even 3 average sized adults. Bright color will stand out against the terrain if your stranded in the middle of nowhere. I had on t-shirt and shorts when I tried it out. Immediately, I felt like I was under a blanket. I was concerned about it getting torn easily but, it has some give to it, so it's no longer a concern. It comes in a reuseable bag to store it in for later. Am happy that i got it for my to go bag. Definitely a DO.
