What are they really?
They are just a simple sheet of heavy weight mylar film very neatly folded to fit in your pocket.
Why are they called "Space Blankets"?
Mylar was developed for the manned space program
Do they work?
Absolutely, they help you retain 90% of your body heat. Every car, boat, plane, backpacker, disaster kit and first aid kit should have at least one. Locally, every school has a cache of them for disaster.
Are they reusable?
Sure, can you neatly fold it back up again? But they are so inexpensive why bother.
What other uses do they have?
- In the desert they reflect the sun off your shelter and are visible from miles. (You decide if that's good or bad.)
- Use them to build a solar oven.
- Don't use them for sun tanning (they work too good and too fast).
- They make a good camping ground cloth. They reflect heat and prevent moisture from coming up from the ground.

I use this space blanket to keep me warm in the winter. I place it between my bedspread and blanket. I liked it so much I purchased one for my son, who likes to go camping in the great outdoors. The price is outstanding and the space blanket arrived very fast.
I bought this to keep in my truck for emergency use, so I haven’t opened it, but it fit nicely in the console of my Tacoma, taking up very little room. CC’s products are first class in my experience, so I graded it based on their reputation.
You never know when you might want to imprison some children, and the kids are gonna need blankets, so these emergency blankies should do the job just fine. Add some sandbags and you've got calming blankets for the whole gang. These smart-looking space comforters would also be great if you were suddenly confronted by a huge al pastor burrito that needs wrapping. I'm gifting these to everyone in my security detail. It's unlikely that I will get to use one any time soon because of that ankle monitor thing. Once again, County Comm hits it out of the park and touches all the bags.
