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.
