Is what it is – Outdoor Survival Blanket (210 x 160cm) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
Small, lightweight, and very shiny. Available in silver or gold. If you are truly desperate for a blanket then this will help. Generally I intend to keep 1 of 3 as a blanket but cut up the others for the reflective surface - to make a camp oven and sun reflector heater. And as a toy for the kids.
Cons:
Yes it does work as a blanket but please don't expect it to save you from hypothermia if you get wet in winter! Useful in the most dire emergencies but only really useful if combined with a real blanket. The thin material will also tend to rip if you wrap it around you and sit on the ground or rock.
Other:
good pricing compared to some of the local "camping" stores trying to sell it for much more
Bottomline:
For survival situations get yourself a real survival blanket (insulated and shiny and thicker) and keep this as a backup of a backup or as a toy for the kids.
