5.0 out of 5 stars I had my doubts...but not anymore, March 22, 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this product (Emergency Mylar Thermal Blanket pack of 10) to put some in my wife's car, my car, and an emergency kit. I have never used one of these before and I thought that they would just be an "okay if I have to" use. Boy was I wrong! I took one out at night (45 degrees F) to test it. It kept me delightfully warm, not hot, but a comfortable warm. I did not feel like I was wrapped in plastic wrap which I thought I would feel. I also tried to push my feet through it (holding on with my hands and with two feet pushing as hard as I could) and all it did was stretch a little but nothing serious. However once it is punched (with a knife on purpose on my part), it will continue ripping fairly easily. Over all this is an excellent, very light weight, cheap price to not freeze in a crumby situation.

FYI The blankets I received are made by B-H Supplies, a 52" by 84" (not 54" by 82" if it matters) and holds in 90% of body heat. Also it sounds like tin foil when you are moving around. My father added that in his survival training they said use two, one for the floor so your body heat does not escape into the ground and one around you while covering your head for maximum warmth.

Just remember it is very importan in a freezing survival situation not to pull this over your head as your breath will release condensation and will cause you to freeze to death

Not exactly. If you intend to sit on this blanket you will LOSE body heat due to the conduction of cold from the ground/floor directly to your very own bottom. This blanket keeps body heat in rather than cold air out and it requires an area of insulating air space to do that. See the very good review by Brian Ames who explains how to correctly use this piece of emergency equipment.
