“No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick.”

Review on a Heavy Duty Mylar Emergency Blanket

By Bev Sandlin


I recently purchased two heavy duty Mylar blankets on eBay from $7.49 each with FREE shipping. Unfortunately, I cannot find them on their website, but they are on eBay, go to:

If you are in a northern climate, your life may depend on staying warm. The cheap emergency blankets tear so easily! And I knew there was heavier Mylar material out there because has nice heavy (best deals on the web that I can find) food storage bags—4 mil I believe. Why they don’t stock the heavy duty Mylar blankets, I do not know…

Anyway, these blankets are definitely worth the money! Very hard to tear (Actually, I couldn’t, but maybe a man could; they stretch.). Definitely reusable! Definitely the best deal on the web that I could find, considering the free shipping.

Five stars from Bev! And I will be ordering more!

Customer service

The exhausted clerk had pulled down blanket after blanket from the shelf, but still the woman customer was not satisfied.
“There is one more blanket left,” said the clerk. “Do you care to see it?”
“I’m not going to buy one today,” said the woman. “I have only been looking for a friend.”
“Well,” said the clerk,”I’ll take the last one down if you think your friend might be in it.”
A couple of definitions from the Devil’s Dictionary:
PATIENCE, n. A minor form of despair, disguised as a virtue.
MEEKNESS, n. Uncommon patience in planning a revenge that is worthwhile.

    Great, I've been looking for a light weight emergency blanket! You are correct, all of the ones I've had tore if you breathed heavily. But 51" - ummm, not sure that would give a lot of extra wrap-around for certain parts of my mature female figure. You reckon I could sew or tape two together like a sleeping bag?

  2. Two other problems if they're anything like the worthless thin blankets:
    1. they're probably still very noisy so you're not going to get much sleep.
    2. I would be shocked to see someone fold one up again properly. :)

    I have had good luck with the emergency bivys from Adventure Medical. They make several different ones. I'm currently using this one. I mean, I have actually used it! It's like a sleeping bag so your feet and legs are all enclosed. Much warmer I think than just the blanket. It's also $30 as versus $3. A generous size, you can put it over your head to keep out of the rain and snow. An investment, but it holds up well enough for multiple uses. Comes in a little bag so there's no re-folding - just stuff it into the bag. Yes, it's still noisy.

    A local friend makes what she calls "redneck sleeping bags" out of fleece throws/blankets. I traded a couple dinners for a few of them :) Ought to work with the mylar blankets, as well.

    Take 2 blankets, lay them together (and pin - I think wide masking tape might be a better idea with mylar? ) Stitch them together down 1 "long" side, across 1 "short" side, and 1/3-1/2 way up the other "long" side. That's it.

    A worthwhile experiment for just 6 bucks :)
