“do these blankets keep you warm? like a "space blanket"? (those silver blankets)”

  • This is an emergency blanket meant to keep users warm during a winter emergency and cooler in the summer by reflecting the sun away. The manufacture did not provide a temperature rating for this blanket.

  • I always pack one of these when I go camping as I have a hard time maintaining my body temperature. Not only do they reflect heat, they also serve as a vapor barrier between you and the ground. Might be a little loud if you shift a lot in your sleep but it beats shivering all night.

  • These MYLAR blankets are excellent for keeping warm (protect from both evaporative & radiant heat loss) & protecting from sun,cold, wind & RAIN.

    When chilly or feeling unwell, I put mylar sheet over me in a hot water bathtub; creates a goose-bump free, chill-free "SAUNA-like" treatment in my own bathtub. GREAT for relieving muscle / joint aches.

    I use it over all my other bed blankets when the night air has too much chill... lovely WARM.

    Great when you have a fever / feel chilled.

    Makes a crinkle sound in breezy windy air, so I put it IN BETWEEN CLOTH blankets in the breezy air to keep warm & quiet to sleep peacefully.

    These are lovely to buy in quantitiy... give one to each home-less person you see who lives outdoors..... LIFE SAVING on a sudden bitter cold night ! :-)
