This Silver Emergency Blanket is an ultra-compact 3" by 4.5" by 3/8", but opens up to a generous size of approximately 59" by 87". Most commonly used for emergency first aid and wilderness survival, these little wonders are capable of a multitude of other uses making them perfect for 72 hour and first aid kits! The blankets are a metalized plastic sheet, which can help prevent or treat hypothermia, act as a windbreaker, and can be worn as an emergency waterproof wrap. Importantly, their reflective property makes them easily seen from a distance, so use your blanket as an emergency signaling device. Since they reflect up to 90% of radiated body heat, they are also widely utilized in non-emergency situations as body wraps to keep athletes warm after a marathon or other sports activity. For these reasons, emergency blankets are indispensable and used by hikers, emergency response teams, and disaster agencies.

With some searching, this product seems to have the largest dimensions (short of going for an actual mylar sleeping bag or 2-person blanket). The price is right for a 10 pack, and gives me some spares to leave in my car, at the hunting shack, and plenty for my wilderness camping first aid kit.
The disadvantage of a pure mylar blanket is that they are very noisy. Some are plastic coated and it helps to insulate against noise. That being said, for a disposable product which you may or may not use, I wasn't interested in paying the premium for a slight reduction in noise.
They are cheap Emergency Blankets.
They are very thin, individually wrapped, nice to throw a few in each vehicle and some in the camping gear.
They can be used in emergencies, better than nothing.
They can be used as a drop cloth, lay one down to stay dry, hang one to reflect heat, yes it does work.
Not for everyday use, rips easy when punctured, noisy, but for a few dollars for 10, handy in a pinch.
Packaging is excellent. I honestly couldn't say what the thickness of the blanket is however it "feels" thicker than the product it was replacing. These also don't "crinkle" nearly as badly which is handy when you're trying to rest or fall asleep.
The last pack of Mylar blankets I purchased from an Army/Navy surplus were really a one and done type usage. These blankets, which can be refolded, are strong enough to be reused. Forget using the original plastic packaging though. Even with your best efforts you're going to want a Ziploc quart bag. Doesn't need to be an HD Freezer type. The Dollar Store variety is just fine. Outside of an emergency, my anticipation is using these as part of a base-camp where I'm not breaking down the tent and rolling up the bags each day. 3,4 or 5 days is no problem and then just discard. It's a hard thing to pin down but my opinion is these blankets would allow comfortable temps up to 15 degrees lower than without them. That alone is absolutely worth the buck apiece cost.
We travel with 4 of us often so each car or BOB bag has a package of 10 and I consider this to be adequate. I wouldn't call myself a "prepper" but these blankets are really a basic essential. Frankly at this price, and especially if you're in a cold weather region, it would be short bus kind of dumb not to keep a package of 10 on hand. Add in 1 wool blanket per 2 people expected to be traveling...
and (no, it's not the Holiday Inn) but you'll be fine for the night even with temps around zero.
Worth the buy. Just a note they are very small I would duck tape two together to make a big one for super cheap.
