Honestly, doesn't seem to be any different from the others so World's Toughest Emergency Blankets????? I don't believe it to be true. They do, however, come nicely individualy packaged but so do other brands. Its a decent product and simply your standard emergency blanket. From what I can tell, nothing more. If you believe them to be less expensive buy them if not buy something else. It'll probably be the same quality. I was sold on the, "World's Toughest," and can't see any significant difference.
Advertised as the worlds toughest space blankets. As far as I can tell, not any more durable than the cheapest ones on market. Also was not marked with any branding on the blanket. The varying bags are cute, but offer little value add other than making it a more presentable gift. Don’t waste your money.
I bought some of these blankets mainly because I loved the name. I mean the point is to not die in the woods, and I was headed out on my first back-country hike and was hoping not to die. Well nobody died, but we did use the blankets. Here's how: - Blanket for downed hiker to lie ON - Shade for downed hiker to lie UNDER - it was still hot at this point - Pillow for other hikers waiting for helicopter - Noisy and scary for the mountain goats who were getting kinda close (they like human pee?!) - Reflective so the helicopter could spot us from above ( you may want to consider a beacon of some sort too) - The little pouch the blanket comes in was a constant reminder not to die (and a good place to store treats) - We escaped the back country 20 hours later, and minus one hiker but thank goodness for these blankets!
When I first ordered these back in June, the ones I received were of decent quality. Not the thickest or most durable, but substantially better than the normal silver ones I'd uses in the past. However, after receiving my second order which I purchased in August, I was greatly disappointed. While the packaging and overall appearance are the same, the material definitely is NOT. These are no longer any more durable than the standard, cheap silver Mylar emergency blankets you can get anywhere else. They have a similar orange coloring to the first order, however the sheen is different and the durability of the plastic sheets themselves is a massive step down, easily ripping and developing pinholes and tears as well as breaks in the metal layer (which, once you lose any of the metal, the heat passes right through as though it were just a thin sheet of plastic). The original ones I purchased back in June are still holding up strong, however this second set I purchased in June, while costing the same high price, are no more durable than the standard, cheap silver ones I've purchases elsewhere. I don't recommend these to anyone for the price unless the company steps the quality back up to what it was previously (which of course, they never do because profits matter more than quality or their reputation). They are still decent for insulating as long as you are extremely careful with them (how these cheap things would survive the outdoors where rocks, sticks, trees and even rough grass could easily cause a hole or tear, I have no idea, but I wouldn't trust them to do so). I am willing to pay a higher price for actual quality, but as soon as a company starts cutting corners to rest on their laurels, that's when I start shopping for a replacement from another manufacturer.
I give it a 5 star for customer service/follow up. I received an email from customer service inquiring if I have any questions. I bought this for my emergency/earthquake bag...after the two recent earthquakes we had in SoCal. Glad that it’s so small and compact and doesn’t take up a lot of space. I hope I don’t get to use it tho.
Don't know that you would get multiple uses. It is a better than some of the thinner mylar blankets. I like that is has an orange side. Could be used to signal. Good to have just in case because you never know when something might happen.
Thicker than most. still protect from wind. not a tarp. NOT a blanket for any real warmth but good wind protection in a pinch. reflects body heat but not insulating in itself. Moisture buildup inside after short time as it is water proof, both ways. Still superior to most "emergency" Mylar "blankets". High vis color is excellent.
