* These blankets are compact and extra easy to carry
* Ultra-durable and extra warm
* Essential for emergency kits
Protecting yourself and your family in emergency situations doesn’t have to be a scary thing. Like a good paint job, it’s all in the preparation. And one of the absolute essentials for your emergency supply kit is a reliable blanket. Here are six blankets we love…
1. Primacare Emergency Foil Mylar Thermal Blanket, Pack of 10
Warm, waterproof and weatherproof…these Mylar blankets are a must-have for any traveler. Less than two ounces each, they provide enough heat and insulation to protect you from the elements. The small packaging makes them easy to store in your car or backpack. And, with this cost-effective and generous 10-pack, there are plenty to go around.
2. Emergency Sleeping Bag Kit
This emergency sleeping bag is essential for the global trekker or the weekend road warrior. It’s tear-resistant and reusable. And, it keeps you extra warm on those extra frosty nights because it reflects your body heat back onto you.
3. S.O.L. Emergency Blanket
Lightweight, compact, and puncture-resistant, the S.O.L. Emergency blanket is the most advanced on the market. It’s made from vacuum-metalized polyethylene that’s more durable than Mylar. Use it for ground cloth, gear cover, a first aid blanket and more.
4. Arcturus All Weather Outdoor Survival Blanket
If you were stranded on a desert island and you could only take one thing, it should be this all weather blanket from Arcturus. Not only does it feature a reflective side to create heat, it can also be used as a tarp or shelter. It comes with a carrying bag and can be stored under your car seat or backpack for those unforeseen emergencies.
5. Stansport Wool Blend Camp Blanket
This is just like those Army blankets that went on every camping and beach trip when you were growing up. Made from a long-lasting wool blend, this blanket keeps you extra warm on cold nights and can also be used as an emergency shelter. Makes a perfect gift for the adventurer in your life.
6. Premier Comfort Down Alternative Luxury Throw
Whether you’re camped out in a tent or on the couch, you’ll have no problem staying cozy with this luxury throw blanket. It’s lightweight and comes with its own drawstring duffle bag, so it’s easy to transport to sporting events or outdoor concerts. Even better, unlike real down, you can toss this one in the washer.
