Emergency Zone Emergency Sleeping Bag
If you do a lot of backpacking or hiking in the wilderness where getting lost is a concern then you’ll find that owning an Emergency Zone reflective Mylar blankets qualifies as a necessity.
This compact survival item doesn’t weigh much and fits nicely into a backpack so you can hike light if your plans include making it back to your campsite before dark.
However, if you get into trouble you’ll be toasty warm in no time inside of this sleeping bag, which prevents up to 80% heat loss.
The shiny silver blanket is no mistake. The reflective Mylar will allow you to signal aircraft and will make you more visible for rescue. This ability gets stronger if you crinkle up the sleeping bag a bit (something that is virtually unavoidable if you use it for sleeping).
You could simply use the emergency sleeping bag for sleeping if you happened to carry your own bag with you. Or you could slide the Mylar sleeping bag inside of your own sleeping bag to generate additional heat without having to start a fire.
The Emergency Zone Emergency Sleeping Bag is both wind and waterproof to keep you from getting sick while you’re sleeping rough. It’s a good idea to spread it over some pine boughs or other insulation on a cleared patch of ground if you want your sleeping experience to be more pleasant, but you could lay it right on the ground if you wanted to.
The Mylar material is very difficult to puncture, an asset in case you miss a rock or a stick near your sleeping spot.
It would also be a good idea to build a small lean-to if this is all you have to sleep with out in the wild, just to keep the rain off and to further shield you from the wind and the cold. You can use the signaling feature later, once the sun is up.
If you have a portable emergency tent with you then you would have an even better chance at spending a comfortable night during an emergency camping situation. Emergency Zone makes those as well, out of the same Mylar fabric. The tents are just as compact as the sleeping bags prior to their being pulled out and used.
Once you’ve taken the Emergency Zone Emergency Sleeping bag out of its packaging it’s nearly impossible to fold it up and put it back in. Be aware that it will take up a lot more space the second time you use it.
At 36” x 84” this sleeping bag is large enough to be comfortable for most users. It is also cost-effective since it is available for just $8.95. This is an essential piece of camping survival equipment that could also come in handy for the most severe TEOTWAWKI scenarios, especially if you end up stranded and far from your safe location.
This is small enough for an everyday carry item in a purse, briefcase, or backpack as well.
