Similar to our silver blankets, except that one side of the sheet is GOLD in color so that it can be easily seen in the snow. The second side is silver so that it can be easily seen in other terrain. The advantage of having both a silver and a gold side make this a perfect disaster blanket to carry in your mountaineering bag or even on the family camping trip.
Folded, the blanket is about the size of a pack of playing cards. When unfolded, our individually packaged emergency blankets open up to a generous 59" by 87" approximately. Most commonly used for emergency first aid and wilderness survival, these little wonders are capable of a multitude of other uses making them indispensable for 72 hour and first aid kits!
The blankets are Space-Age metalized plastic sheets which can help prevent or treat hypothermia, act as a wind breaker, can be an emergency waterproof wrap, and can be used as an emergency signaling device as they are easy to spot from a distance. Since they reflect up to 90% of radiated body heat, they are also widely utilized in non-emergency situations as body wraps to keep athletes warm after a marathon or other sports activity. For these reasons, emergency blankets are considered standard gear and carried by Community Emergency Response Teams (CERT) as well as other emergency disaster agencies.
