The Arcturus All Weather Outdoor Survival Blanket is a super versatile blanket, a must have for hikers, campers and boaters. It's small and compact and easily fits in a backpack. This lightweight blanket features a strong nylon outer layer coupled with an aluminum reflective layer on the inside.
The aluminum side reflects up to 90% of body heat. This blanket comes in its own carry bag and weighs only 12 ounces. It is 5' x 7' when fully deployed. The aluminum side of the blanket can be used to reflect heat, create a radiant barrier or signal for help. The other side is made of a durable nylon which can be used as a blanket, tarp or shelter.
Can be used as a ground tarp, shelter, tent or emergency blanket when camping, hunting, backpacking or boating. Keep one in the trunk of your car. All four corners have grommets so that it can be staked to the ground or strung up as an overhead shelter.

The blanket works well. Used it as a ground tarp in the Dixie National Forest in Utah and it held up quite well. The reinforced corners and large grommets are much appreciated. The carry bag would be better if the zipper went at least partially down each side. That would take some stress off the zipper ends when the bag is full open (and when stuffing the blanket in it), minimizing the chance the two sides of the zip becoming misaligned. Overall, a great purchase for the price.
Not a true blanket as it is very thin but much better than nothing when needed. All else is as advertised. So many ways it can be used as manufacturer states. Particularly like the reinforced grommets. Not used yet but think it will hold up well. Purchased one for each vehicle if emergency arises.
