Also known as space blanket, Mylar blanket, first aid blanket, emergency blanket, thermal blanket or weather blanket.
- It is a low-weight, low-bulk blanket made of heat-reflective thin plastic sheeting.
- By reflecting up to 97% of radiated heat, their design reduces the heat loss in a person's body which would otherwise occur due to thermal radiation, water evaporation, or convection.
- Lost trail runners and hikers have an additional possible benefit: the metallic surface appearance flashes in the sun, allowing use as an improvised locator-beacon for searchers.
- Unlike most emergency blankets, which are either gold or silver in colour, our blankets are gold coloured on one side and silver on the other side.
- Emergency blankets are waterproof and windproof.
- In first aid the blankets are used to prevent/counter hypothermia.
- In a hot environment they can be used to provide shade, resulting in heat reflection to the outside.
- It is a mandatory item for all participants in the Asian Trail Explorers' events for distances above 15 km. It is a highly recommended item for all events below 15 km.
Please note that all items will only be shipped from November 2015 onwards.
