Items to have in your "Bug out" back pack-part 3

We have have two types of survival blankets in our packs. One kind is a light weight blanket by "Heatsheets" One place to get them is here: http://www.adventuremedicalkits.com/product.php?product=145&catname=Essentials&prodname=Heatsheets®%20Emergency%20Blanket This smaller survival blanket is kept in a pocket. As I have said, we have a vest with a bunch of pockets all over so these small survival items I've mentioned would be kept in that. These are, in my opinion, better than the small silver blankets you can get at any grocery store. They are slightly bigger, 84' x 56" versus the silver blanket of 84" x 36" and only cost about 4. dollars. These are virtually the same thin silver material, but with a plastic coating that makes it more like a thin blanket and less easily torn.

The other type which is kept in the main compartment of our packs is of a type called: SPACE® Brand All-Weather Hooded Thermal Survival Blanket-I bought mine here; http://www.safetycentral.com/hoodalrefbla.html and they cost about 15 dollars. These are great. They are plenty big (5' x 6') and very durable. Tough enough to be used as a ground cover and light weight at 10 oz. I especially like the hood that is on these so they work great as a poncho.
Another item I feel is handy if not essential is a bunch of rubber bands of various sizes. You'll be surprised how handy they are. I make mine from old bike inner tubes and just cut them to various sizes-thin and wide, up to 1/2 inch wide is my largest size.
Keep on Preppin!
