This All Weather Blanket is a by-product of the super insulating materials originally developed for the NASA/APOLLO Space Missions. It was used by U.S. military, police and rescue organizations throughout the world. Engineered to reflect and retain over 80% of radiated body heat, it provides the user with warmth, comfort and protection from harsh elements. Utilizing a four layer construction technique that gives the blanket dimensional stability, while enabling the reflective properties to function effectively in an outdoor environment, it's an ideal accessory for all those venturing into the outdoors. The blanket is totally reusable and will last a very long time. There are reports and samples of the product still in the field after 25 years. There are many ways that the millions of All Weather Blankets purchased since 1964 have benefited a wide array of outdoor enthusiasts.








This blanket will reflect and help retain over 80% of radiated body heat, providing warmth and protection, even in sub zero temperatures. This is a premier accessory product for all outdoor activities. The fully bound material measures 60" (152 cm) by 84" (213cm), weighs less than 10 ounces. The multi-ply laminated construction along with the reflective metal surface make this the "ideal outdoor safety blanket", for personal protection, shelters, ground covers, boating, hiking, sight visibility and it is a radar reflector. The ALL WEATHER BLANKET is a four ply laminate of clear polyethylene film, a precise vacuum deposition of pure aluminum, a special reinforcing fabric and a layer of colored polyethylene film. This new ASTROLAR® reinforcing fabric provides up to 50% more tear and puncture resistance. The special four layer construction techniques of the ALL WEATHER BLANKET and its unique physical properties help to make it a perfect accessory item for all outdoor activities. Compact size makes it ideal in a day pack for emergence, tent and bivy sack use or as part of an emergency kit in your car or home other than below.


  • Shelter: Use as a personal emergency shelter against the effects of wind, rain and cold. Use the silver side facing towards you for maximum reflectivity. Use as a sun reflector by facing silver side outward or line the inside of your tent to keep out heat or cold.
  • Medical: Help prevent hypothermia by maintaining body heat. Sit or squat, when possible, to effectively concentrate your core body heat. Protect your head and chest area. Move around frequently, to maintain good circulation and create body heat.
  • Protection: Use as a heat reflector on the back wall of a shelter; sit between fire and blanket. Line the roof of any makeshift shelter to keep out the wind and moisture. Keep in your vehicle; place over inside of windows, fabric to prevent heat build up and UV damage when leaving your vehicle for extended periods in hot weather (silver side to the sun).
  • Ground Cover: Helps keep moisture and dampness away from your sleeping bag or tent floor. Use folded as a comfortable seat cushion while fishing, open it's a table cover, or picnic blanket.
