Say's ideal for runners but would be a good idea to put some of these in the boot of the car. Shame they didn't have them in stock at the start of the winter.

These emergency blankets are ideal for runners to keep warm and insulated after a long run. Great value twin-pack 1m x 2m (approx)

We always have these in the rucksack when we're skiing. Haven't had to use one yet so don't know how effective they are.

OP the only running you do is to the fridge for another bit of cheese cake so dont give it all the 'oh i wish i had these at the start of winter' patter.

Ideal for Mountain Biking but don't have a store near me.

I will VOTE HOT just to offset the moron who posted first! What a reason - numpties like that should be banned.

bought one from camping store for £3.00 each.. Great value... I always carry one in the car.

im sure people use the excuse 'always good to have one in the car' to try and sell their deal as being hot or a good bargain.
Ive never yet been in a car and thought hmm i need an insulating blanket.

paranoid if you ask me

Bacofoil FTW :thumbsup:

Have you ever been stuck out somewhere when its freezing? For the sake of a pound and the lack of space it takes to store better safe than sorry. Not paranoid, prepared mate. :thumbsup:

Exactly, my mate broke down in cornwall in the middle of winter at night and it took 6 hours (if I remember correctly) for the RAC to get him because apparently they had a busy night with everyone skidding off the roads.

I guess he could've wacked his heating up but that would mean leaving the engine running so he didn't get a flat battery, you'd be surprised how fast cars lose their heat.

In my car I always have:

Wind-up torch
High-vis vest
Warm jacket

Nobody is saying you have to do a Ray Meers, but having a compact lightweight blanket in your car which costs £1 could come in really handy.

Bit like my car having airbags, hopefully I won't ever need to use them but its nice to know they are there if ever I do.

+1

indeed... H&R

I use these when overnighting in the backcountry (Canada) nice to have a liner in your snowhole to kickback some of the body heat... cheap & useful for keeping spirits up & a bit drier.

I have never broke my leg but other people have.... what a totally daft post.

Poundland have been doing these for years, I've got a couple stuck to the inside of the spare room window. It was double glazed but last summer the heat coming through that window was mental, putting these up made a huge difference. A lot cheaper than Millets! Poundland also had weeeee little teflon-coated frying pans and mess tins and all sorts. +H&R

great for sensory play!

fail to prepare? prepare to fail

I'd much rather use them to bury "runners" in. COLD


explain !!!!!!!!

Anybody insane enough to rely on something that costs £1 to keep them alive, wants shooting. No wonder Mountain Rescue are kept busy!!!

Used to be called space blanket years ago. Mountain rescue carry them ---- but not from poundland.

And yep, they are busy sometimes, but not because of people who pack these. :whistling:

:thumbsup:if u risk your life in the hills in winter then you wouldnt carry these...but if i were in the hills this winter and had the choice to have them or not for a quid.i would have them

What if you've broken down and your car won't start (pretty common) - try using your heaters then...

There are some really stupid people on this thread :viking:
Good post heat added.

This is a good option for lining your 'growing room' rather than ridiculously expensive agricultural type mylar...

in fact - just had a look at the other dealt - there's a ready made growing tent :w00t:

What the heck, after my heating bills arrive, might need a couple of these in the house:w00t:

Don't understand all the heckling in this thread, good deal.:)

If you don't like runners, cyclists, boy scouts....whatever just move on!! Words to that effect anyway;-)

There are a lot of people on this thread who seem exceptionally offended and upset by what other people wish to spend £1 on and carry in their cars\backpacks.

It's as though as children they had imaginary friends made out of potatoes who got wrapped up in foil when they weren't looking and roasted to death by their parents.

Voted cold on this one - i voted hot on the tent but if your just going through poundshop or what ever for positive feedback then its a big chilly cold

That's very nice of you thanks!

Voted Hot.

I'm a caver and mine explorer so this is standard essential kit. I always carry two because there's always someone that forgets.

Maybe not suitable for serious climbers/skiers etc, but like the OP and others said, it's a good idea to have in the car.
If you have a breakdown on a motorway, you're supposed to get out of your vehicle and stay behind the barriers in case your car gets hit at high speed. Well worth a few quid to keep everyone a bit warmer if you get stuck in that situation, and for those of us who only want them for those kind of emergencies, the cheapo version should be perfectly adequate.
