The Life Systems Heatshield Blanket is a lightweight, flexible, compact and strong blanket that reflects and retains 90% of radiated body heat and reduces windchill.
Life Systems says:
Designed to offer personal thermal protection in the event of an accident, trauma or exposed situation, the Life Systems Heatshield blanket reflects and retains 90% of radiated body heat and reduces windchill.
Exposure to wet, extreme cold or windchill can cause dramatic body heat loss. Besides the simple discomfort of being cold, exposure can lead to hypothermia, a dangerous condition which can quickly become life threatening and is fairly common in the outdoors. Packing a Life Systems Heatshield Blanket will keep you mind at ease knowing you have something to help combat this.
The printed emergency survival information on the blanket is a very useful feature and because the blanket is made from a weatherproof fabric is could also be used as an emergency shelter or ground tarp. Versatile!
