2010 FOLLOW UP:My lightweight sleeping bag was getting cold so I put my 'normal sleeping bag' INSIDE one of these, it made quite a difference...
So I bought 2 of these. 1 to keep for emergency purposes and 1 to try on a winter backpacking trip to the Cutler Coast in Maine. This is one of the eastern most points in the United States. It's only a few miles from Canada and consequently another time zone.
Generally the January temperatures in Cutler at night are between 0F and 10F. When you add the wind chill from the Ocean it can make for some very harsh conditions. I was "fortunate" that the night time temps only dropped to about 20F and there was no wind to speak of.
I used the reflective bag inside a Bivy sack and tried out a number of different things. When I first started, I used it as a sleeping bag with my head sticking out of the top. Almost worthless! Any heat I retained was more likely due to the Bivy then the Reflective bag. No matter how tightly I held the bag close to much air was getting out.
Then I adjusted the bag to close the top leaving only a small hole for me to exhale out of so moisture didn't build up inside. Within about 20 minutes I could feel myself warming up. I was shocked at how warm it made me. I won't tell you it was "comfortable" but with only my thermals on, I could have defiantly survived the night.
Last, I went naked. I apologize for the visual, but I have read a lot of articles that suggested this was the way to maximize your body heat in one of these bags. Personally, I didn't find that to be the case and 20 minutes into the "All natural" experiment I gave it up.Read more ›
All in all, with as cheap as these things are and as much help they can provide to you in an emergency(not to mention how little room they take to store), everyone should have a handful of them in storage "just in case" they ever need them for anything.
1. Lined the inside of my shelter which prevented heat from escaping as much as well as waterproofing my shelter killing 2 birds with 1 stone. ***be careful when puncturing these, once a hole or tear starts it will continue. Good ol duck tape solves that problem for me.
2. Placed a couple branches (vertically) about 1ft behind my fire and attached the emergency blanket to it so that it would continuously reflect heat from the fire into my little shelter that was also lined with an emergency blanket. Be sure not to place it to close to the fire as embers will burn holes in it. It will still work but wont be reusable if you plan onit moving or using it for something else. Talk about staying relatively warm. The temperature was 6-8 degrees by the way.
3. These are amazing signaling devices. It acts like a ridiculously oversized mirror and is highly contrasting to the environment and highly visible. All good things when trying to get found.
