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.
Where to Buy
Some emergency shelters are just that - meant to be used once or twice when needed and then never again. The SOL Sport Utility Blanket is a different type of shelter — one that can be used as an emergency blanket one day and then as a picnic blanket the next. Use it to haul heavy loads, as a ground tarp underneath a tent, rigged as a shelter, or to cover your gear in foul weather. The Sport Utility Blanket is up for any task.
Even with many times the strength of similar multi-use blankets and tarps, plus a scorching 95% heat reflectivity rating, the Sport Utility Blanket still weighs in at only 11.3oz.
