How it works: Super-insulation is exactly what the name implies - an ultra light material with very high insulation efficiency. It was originally developed to meet demands of aerospace applications. The blanket material is an aluminized plastic film laminated to a plastic film reinforcing layer, as shown in the drawing below. This insulation material works because of its high heat reflectivity (80%). It can be used to keep heat away or to keep available heat in, according to the circumstances.

The all-weather blanket evolved from an insulation material develpoped for use by NASA in the Apollo program. Like the material used in aerospace applications, this unusual blanket is aluminized plastic film. It has many uses for outdoor enthusiasts becuase it is big, waterporoof, soil resistant, compact and weighs less than 10 ounces. To clean, simply wipe with damp cloth or sponge.

A great blanket for the outdoors: Campers use the blanket as a ground cover for tents and sleeping bags. Skiers go up chair lifts in comfort, wrapped in an All-weather blanket. Fishermen spread it at streamside for a clean, dry spot for supplies and the day's catch. Hunters have adapted it as a duck blind and windbreak. Many a golfer has used it to keep dry during a sudden shower on the course. Boatsmen use it as a cockpit sunshade and know, too, that it relects radar should an emergency arise. For the grandstand spectator during the fall football season there is no better lap robe than a lightweight all weather blanket.

The all-weather blanket is: warm, lightweight, compact, durable, waterproof, windproof, has grommetted corners and is flexible vein in sub-freezing temperatures. Used by U.S. Government, military, police and rescue organizations throughout the world.
