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!
