I live in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Today was a high of -20C, and I'd love to test this out :)

Gear Testers shall apply by replying to the thread specifying the preferred color: Any

Size: Larger the better

Whether or not they have been a part of the
OneTigris Gear Testing Program before*: First time considering to be a gear tester. Have a few One Tigris products for backpacking but would enjoy a chance to test and provide feedback.

Specifications and how they will test the product(s): I live in NE Ohio, in 9 days in Jan-Feb temps and conditions went from mid 50's to teens. Everything from rain to sleet to snow then a more frozen snow. Any testing would be done at a park and camp site at one of Ohio's State Forests. I'm planning a overnight trip within the coming weeks. This looks like a opportunity to review a similar themed product in addition to test some hammock gear I purcased to winter camp with.

Thanks

Hey, how do you feel about it?
Hey Lan, I like it very much so far.

I was very surprised that it is actually fabric and therefore quite soft and breathable, although not waterproof.

I have not yet been able to give it a good eval yet due to us being hit by Cyclone Gita and therefore I have been concentrating on staying sheltered & minimizing damage to my place from the storm & flooding.

Package received! Impressed with the quality so far. Weight and size are impressive. Waiting for some cooler temps to put it through the paces. So far so good. I’m planning on using it snow to get a get idea as to the waterproofness and heat retention.

I wish I could test this product and provide professional reviews; even if you can give a relative suggestion here, I think even at 5 degrees Celsius to 10 degrees centigrade temperature, also must have the performance of ventilation, such as our long-term outdoor enthusiasts will be more comfortable to sweat, so the blanket is relatively warm but comfortable to suffocate, It's easy to catch a cold if you sweat, so I'd prefer the rug to be breathable at the moment of warmth.

Review of One Tigris Thermal Emergency Blanket
First, thanks for choosing me to review this product. When I first received the blanket I was impressed with the weight and size, as it would be very easy to carry. The version I received was the mummy version.
The first test was to see if there was actual heat reflection from the blanket. I found that at room temperature, you could definitely feel the reflection of body heat, especially when the bag was completely closed around the entire body.
The outside material is pliable and seems to withstand several uses. So it is definetly a re-usable bag and not just a one time use. The outside material is water resistant, but not waterproof. Water would bead and collect but could be brushed off easily. If allowed to pool in one spot, there was some soak through.
I tested the blanket in sub zero temperatures and this is where I have some concerns. On its own, I would not recommend using this bag in sub zero temperatures. Anyone that has camped in these type of temperatures know that snow and frozen ground can “draw” the heat from your body without some type of insulation between you and the snow/ground. The bag and an extra layer (used a sleeping bag liner and a -7 bag on separate occasions) did not provide sufficient insulation that would be beneficial in a long term situation.
I plan on doing further tests come spring and summer when our temps are above freezing. This may be where the product has a better application.
If the bag continues to be sold, I would attach some suggested guidelines on the product, so that someone would not get the wrong idea, and expect that the blanket alone would save them, especially in sub zero temps.
If used with an insulated mat and a sleeping bag, it could be considered as an “emergency” survival blanket or bivy.
I’ll post further information when our temps move over to the plus side!
Thanks again for this opportunity!
Dean
