This "blanket" is stiff and plastic. I don't know how you would easily wrap it around yourself. In an emergency, it would be better than nothing, but I it seems to stiff to wrap around someone or to lock heat in. I would not buy another one.
- How did the image on site compare with the actual product? I expected a blanket, but this seems like an insulated tarp
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? item title misleading
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. It is OK for a tarp or vinyl covering
Uncompleted design. As is, very brilliantly the false good idea. No correct closure on any body. To make it useful : Step 1. Sew 2 grosgrain eyelets for securing 2 elastic laces for closing the neck of the hood. Step 2. Sew 4 grosgrain eyelets at 50 cm and 1 m on the front sides. Secure elastic laces on. Step 3. Elastic laces on the lower eyes. Step 4. Sew 2 trapezes of watertight fabric on the upper sides, small bases near the hood. Join them by a 50 cm zip. Step 5. Same operation on 2/3 of the height oh the front sides. Main width about 12 cm, more near the upper corners. Step 6. Waterproof the sewings with a solution of silicone mastic in white-spirit. Let it dry 5 days. So now, you have a real piece of kit for survival use. However, it remains of very little use otherwise, as it lets not you do anything. A real poncho, or better a hump cape give you a far better overall purpose. The best is the Ferrino Trekker, which has an aluminated inside, and lets you do anything a backcountry hiker has to do in a bad weather, even with a strong wind.
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? False. The real dimensions are 180 cm width (6 feet), 152 cm height.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Correct, but lacking the necessary fittings for any survival purpose.
