Thread: Uses of the Mylar Survival Blanket

  1. #1

    Default Uses of the Mylar Survival Blanket

    Many of us carry a Mylar survival blanket in our PSK's, vehicles, or BOB's. I am very fond of these little devils. In this vid, I cover a few shelter, signaling, and personal protection options. I know there are many more uses for these,but these are the ones I use the most. The real nice thing about these is the cost. Cheap. This make it easy to go out and practice with. Sorry no stills with this one.

    Cool video. Thanks for that.
    Wherefore, let us be thankful that there are still thousands of cool, green nooks beside crystal springs, where the weary soul may hide for a time, away from debts, duns and deviltries, and a while commune with nature in her undress. ~ George W. “Nessmuk” Sears ~

    Default Good Video.

    Like the way you used a clump of grass. Try to remember that. Used army ponchos about like you did. Ben a long time ago.

    Sweetness! I think the mylar poncho would be great in snowy, windy, cold conditions. I've used garbage bags like that many times, but I've never thought of the survival blanket. I'll bet it works much better. I have used it as a lean to though, and I can testify it really keeps your backside warm, especially in windy conditions. Just keep the wind to the back if you can as it will pull the heat of the fire towards you. Unfortunately, it will pull the smoke towards your face too (unless you lay down.)
