Emergency Blanket

rated 3 of 5 stars Best when new. I used this once to keep my butt dry while I sat on a riverbank while my son played in the water. It is not a very good thermal barrier, being so thin heat conducts to the ground right through it. The aluminum coating might reflect radiant heat and as a tarp it certainly will keep you dry and out of the breeze. That said when I went to use it a second time all of the aluminum reflective material had come off. It still will make a light ground cloth or an emergency tarp, but its claim… Full review

Origin

rated 1 of 5 stars I got this as a freebie despite having to pay import duties. OK, this must rate as the worst survival kit out there. The knife is terrible. The light is useless. The light on mine would not work when it worked. It would not switch off. The on/off switch has now broken (just what you need in a survival situation!). The plastic box is way too small. I much prefer a simple 2oz tobacco tin. The knife blade works itself loose after a little while. If I had paid the full price for this I would have been… Full review

Sport Utility Blanket

rated 5 of 5 stars Knowing that I could use this more than once, means that I am not contributing to the throwaway society. This can be used for many things, so that gives me a good reason to add this to my pack. One day we put this under the sleeping bag and the dampness didn't come through. The next day we used it as a tarp over us in the rain. Since there are so many uses, to me it is a good weight. I have a bad back so every ounce counts. Full review

Escape Bivvy

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The SOL Escape Bivvy is excellent for campers who don't use tents, but prefer to use a tarp or sleep under the stars. It in conjunction with a sleeping bag can perform even in very low temperatures as a full shelter system. SOL Escape Bivvy The escape bivvy, in my opinion, is a bivvy like no other. It’s durable, warm, and comfortable. It does have its downsides though like the fact that you can’t move your arms very easily while inside, especially when using a sleeping bag inside of it. Breathability… Full review

Emergency Blanket

rated 4 of 5 stars An emergency blacket that is small enough to fit in a large locket on your pants or jacket. If you become separated from your pack/camp (don't laugh, it happens) you will be glad that you had this blanket with you. Hopefully you never need it, but if you do it will be the best $6 you ever spent. Full review
