We needed metalic blankets to cut down on condensation that was forming inside our popup trailer, these did the job nicely! Reading other reviews I didn't trust the grommets so I A-clamped them to the top border of each bunk. Needed 1 for one side (full bed) and 2 to cover the king size bunk. They are thinner than I expected so I don't know how they will hold up for the season but for the first time out they worked great!

Thinner than expected but did the job!
I did tear the hemming on first use but it was a bit of an extreme circumstance. After tearing it off, I was surprised at how low-quality the hemming is. Everything else is awesome and the hemming isn't going to help prevent tearing on the plastic sheet anyway.
I actually use this for my floor bedding. I use it as a moisture-proof sheet, placing it under my floor bedding so that I would not feel cold and humid at night. It works well. :D
UST Survival Blanket 2.0
First I don't generally gve 5 stars for anything but this at least gets 4.5 stars plus the price in store is under $12. It is light weight, blaze orange on 1 side, metallic on the other. It's fitted with garments and reinforced all around. Relatively light and about a 16th of an inch thick (a quarter or 2, coins). It's much larger then the competitors at a fraction of the cost (width, at least 2 people wide laying flat). I used it under my family's sleeping bags which helped for clean up but I only felt it during the afternoon while taking a nap. I could definitely feel the reflected heat from the sun on that cold day. I would guess the night would be nominal heat reflection since the air is cooler and the gound absorbs any heat in contact with it. I think its best to really know what a "space blanket" is used for and how they really work as well as its limitations. As for I, we will be using this blanket and another for many more trips and a spare in the vehicle in case of emergencys.
Essential emergency item
You MUST have one of these in your trunk or travel bag. Would I sleep with this instead of a bag or fabric blanket? No, of course not. But if you need to save a life-yours or someone else's-this might be the ticket. Wrapped as a bivvy sack around a light bag, or used by itself around a wet or freezing person until you can get them to a fire, et cetera. Signal with it? I guess but I think using it a tarp seems more likely for an alternate use. Plus this blanket is reusable where those little tin foil jobs are strictly one time use propositions.
