The Rothco All-Weather Survival Blanket is a waterproof and windproof multi-purpose blanket that is durable, easy to clean, and can be used in a number of ways. It makes for an effective blanket as it reflects up to 80% of body heat to keep you warm at night. It can also be used as a picnic blanket, or as a ground tarp underneath your tent to keep moisture from seeping in. During foul weather, it can serve as an equipment cover or as a temporary shelter. And in case you get lost in the woods, it can function as a reflective emergency signal to alert your rescuer to your location. Lightweight and compact, it can easily be stored in your car and backpack in case of an emergency.
