Today we are reviewing a very different kind of survival blanket. This product comes from Blizzard Survival and has some revolutionary technology in regard to survival blankets.
There are few companies on the market that provide quality subdued colored survival blankets designed for escaping and evading. Blizzard offers survival blankets in OD Green, Blaze Orange, and the standard Silver. So they can be used by military and civilian personal alike. The OD Green blends very well in a wilderness environment. Like I said above, this may be very important to military personnel trying to conceal their position.
When I received the blanket I noticed it was much larger than a traditional space blanket. Coming in about the size of a red brick. Initially I didn't understand why, but then I read about what differentiates this from a standard Mylar blanket.
It's very large and will easily cover any adult. The Blizzard Survival Blanket also has self-adhesive strips and when used; it can be made into a sleeping bag. This helps to keep out any cold draft's, especially in arctic environments.
I highly suggest a Blizzard Survival Blanket over traditional space blankets, for those that may be operating in arctic or extreme cold regions. They do offer an Blaze orange for civilian applications; so that you can be found.
