Space All-weather Blanket
- Has anyone used one of these
I will eventually make or buy and underquilt but the season for that
has passed. I was thinking of this blanket instead of a pad for
slightly chilly nights.
- I had the same one or a very similar model. I ended up using it
as a ground cloth more than anything else. The material is pretty
tough but it's even stiffer than tyvex. I think an extra thermal
top/bottom and a hat would be a better option for a chilly night than
this blanket. The material is so stiff you really have to wrap it
tight to keep from bellowing out all your accumulated heat.
I saw the other post about the thermolite bivy. I picked up one
of those on a clearance rack to keep in the car. I tried using it in
freezing weather with a lightweight bag inside. Even with the vent I
had the opposite problem that I couldn't ventilate it very well so
everything was pretty clammy but warm.
Just my $.02
