    Lol! I got some of these a few years ago: pretty worthless. I TESTED these blankets in a few ways. First, I had my kids swim in our pool, then had them wrap up, sit in sun. After 30 minutes, they said they were really cold, just wanted to lay in sun, and lose the crinkly thing! So, I thought, well they were already cold. Next morning, I wrapped myself in one, regular clothes, sat on deck. Waited 30 minutes, and was starting to feel chilled. There was No Ambient body heat being held by this thing. So, I went in, grabbed a $1 rain poncho (same size while bagged, almost same size when laid on ground). Put it on, sat for a bit: like 10 minutes. I sure felt my body heat under this. So, folks, try both, before we ever need one!

    Thanks for link. Lol, I was rather disappointed when I tried those silver things. I thought your additional tips of using these were very good, especially for the price and how little space they take up in a bag.
