Casualty Blanket

Spotted: Casualty Blanket

That doubles as a ground sheet. Versatile, it is riveted and can be used as a tarp. Specs: 56x 84 inches, lightweight. One side is aluminized, the flipside dark coated (olive green). Aluminum side can be used as a reflector in case of an emergency during daylight. Blanket when wrapped can keep temperature down. Spotted at HMR along Pioneer St. priced at P 350.00.

A similar one was helpful to me in Banahaw, Apo and in Tawangan during cold, rainy conditions when I was too lazy to pull out tent during short bivouacs. It kept me warm, dry and alive.
