Unlike mylar space blankets that can easily tear, the Rescue Essentials Hypothermia Wrap is made from a combination of mylar and strong, lightweight polyethylene fabric laminated together. It provides improved body heat reflection and durability compared to traditional mylar. High visibility orange on one side and metallized silver on the other, the Rescue Essentials Hypothermia Wrap is THE lightweight, compact solution for keeping patients warm - the last critical phase of the M.A.R.C.H. treatment algorithm. Silver side can be reversed to deflect solar gain when the need to cool a patient arises. Weighing in at only 3.5 ounces, this is an essential piece of gear for all responders.
• Reflects 90% of body heat to provide warmth without bulk

I am giving this wrap a 3 for now because I haven't had to use it. I got it for the glove box of my vehicle to have in case I break down. It is small enough to not take up much room and comes in a sealed package to help keep it dust free. I also like the orange color for safety reasons.
