Emergency Solar Blanket

This Emergency Solar Blanket is perfect for your main emergency preparedness kit or a supplemental survival kit for the car, office or school. This emergency blanket is 84 inches by 52 inches (7 feet by 4.3 feet) and was originally developed for use by astronauts. Made from mylar, the solar blanket retains 90% of your body heat, making it perfect for weathering blizzards, ice storms and other inclement weather events. It can also be used as a ground cover or a shield from the elements.

This Emergency Solar Blanket is designed for use in survival situations but can also be useful if your car breaks down or gets stuck on the highway. Also known as a space blanket, a mylar blanket, a first aid blanket, emergency blanket or weather blanket, this Emergency Solar Blanket is extremely portable as it can fold up into an extremely small space. It's made from a very thin sheet of plastic with a special metallic coating, making it windproof and waterproof as well. The blanket is surprisingly lightweight, given how well it holds in heat, and is often used to treat and prevent hypothermia.

The Emergency Solar Blanket isn't just useful for warming individuals and fighting cold weather - it's reflective surface and lightweight material makes it useful as a shade, as well. Because Emergency Solar Blankets are so space-efficient, affordable and portable, we recommend buying several for each of your kits. Ask us about bulk discounts - we offer volume pricing.
