Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and tough It is amazing how much I have abused it for past 22 years. Yes... 22 years for one tarp. I have used it as ground sheet in beach, car camping, backpacking and as tarp shelter in backpacking. I have also used it for covering my leaky tent, extending the shelter for my tent and once as space blanket. It is very tough and almost indestructible. Once I left it outside in the sun in the backyard for couple of weeks straight and top red layer disintegrated a little from folds. But still it is fully water proof. I can't sing enough praise for this tarp. After 22 years (and counting more)... I am going to buy another one. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best piece of gear ever. No lie. Ive had mine for over 4 years now. I have used so much its worn thin (100+ bag nights a year.) Im going to buy a new one and cut my old one to the shape of my tent floor and use it as a footprint. Which works great it its original form because its light, reflects heat, and is good sized. Now for the survival part. I came across a nasty rollover in Oregon a few winters ago. Just outside of Jordan Valley in 20 degree temps and whiteout. This kept the victim warm and dry (alive) until meds arrived, nearly an hour. Its also saved me a few times. I had it on a backcountry snow hike and somehow i lost the poles to my tent.. This kept me reasonably warm and off the snow (alive.) You wont regret this product. Ever.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Granny keeps this close at all times! i am not a sports person at all. i am a granny with rheumatoid arthritis. i have used this for five years. It is so simple and effective. i keep it folded next to my bed and use when needed. Using it warms me up in less than five minutes and i am able to fall asleep. if i do not use it, it may take half the night to warm up enough to fall asleep deeply. i don't use electric blankets. Other blankets, even down-filled, don't work fast like the reflective heat ones. Often i don't realize i am cold until i get into bed then i don't feel like getting out to make hot water bottles. I only wish it was softer and even more durable. It would make a thoughtful gift for any older person who feels the cold alot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved the Day On a recent overnight trip, and my first in a hammock, I woke up in the middle of the night, absolutely freezing. I had placed a sleeping pad under me, like everyone suggests, but my sleeping bad was underrated. Even with all my clothes on, and a jacket, I was shivering uncontrollably, and getting a bit worried about the possibilities of dealing with hypothermia. I got up, lined the hammock with the all-weather blanket, and went back to sleep. Within minutes I was comfortable, and slept quite well for the rest of the night. This thing is amazing. It's tough, makes little noise when you're moving around on it, and has countless uses, from rain fly to ground cloth, to whatever. It's one of those things that costs relatively little, and pays off so much.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent tarp with great heat reflective abilities. This tarp is like a hybrid between a fragile space blanket and one of those blue all-purpose tarps you can get at the hardware store. I am using it as a survival shelter for S&R and also an ultralight shelter in good weather. It's not really an ultralight tarp, as it is bulkier and heavier than UL shelters, so I wouldn't really recommend it for that. It's more like a heavy space blanket in tarp form. I slept outside under this tarp in sub-freezing temperatures and it kept me safely warm, almost comfortable. With a small fire you will be downright toasty. It is very good at reflecting heat. It is also good at keeping the rain off. The main downside is that the material, while more durable than a mylar blanket, is not as strong as it could be for the weight and the grommets are fairly fragile so I wouldn't run a cord through them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Versatile and durable I've been using this blanket for several years on mountaineering, backpacking and car camping trips. Thankfully, I have never used it in an emergency situation, though I have all the confidence it would perform well. The fabric is tough and easily washed for repeated use. The grommets permit use of rope a/o steaks for a make shift shelter. It has substituted as a tent footprint and ground cover while packing clothing and sleeping bag. Heavier and bulkier than most other emergency blankets. Its versatility make this product worth it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What can this blanket not do?! This is one of the first things I pack for adventures. I also keep one in my vehicle emergency kit, and it makes a great gift (esp. for other minimalist adventurers). I used to use those single-layer space blankets (which still come in handy but are so noisy, flimsy and difficult to repack, and run the risk of simply floating away on the merest breeze). I inevitably upgraded to this incredibly versatile and durable blanket. I used it as rain-fly or ground-cover, sleeping bag bivvy, and, yes, as a blanket. My primary use for it lately is as a liner/wind barrier in my camping hammock. It is as easy to clean as dunking it in a stream or spraying it with a hose. With the help of some crafty folding or extra structural elements, it can be used as a reflector to get the most heat out of a camp stove. Finally, I'm still testing it's efficacy as an extra reflector for sun-tanning, but it tends to reflect more heat than light ;-)

Anyone knows how this compares to the SOL brand utility blanket in terms of strength and durability?

Asked by: RescueDiver
The Space All-Weather Blanket is very similar to the SOL Sport Utility Blanket in size, construction and function. The SOL blanket appears to have a slightly more robust construction and may hold up better over the long run.

Could I use this in my Hennessy Hammock instead of a sleeping pad? I will be in Yellowstone in September where temps that time of year can go below freezing at night.

Asked by: crazymethods
While you could use this in the hammock, it likely won't be warm enough to keep you warm in below freezing temperatures. We would recommend using an underquilt with your hammock.
