If kept in the packaging until needed, these take up relatively little space. They're perfect for our BOBs. Thanks EE!

“Most people have heard of an Emergency Blanket, but you may not have heard of an ‘Emergency Bag’. These are the pocket-sized, lightweight, bags or blankets that help you preserve your body heat in cold, challenging circumstances.
I remember the first time I tested the emergency bag’s claim of “keeping you warm” in cold weather. I was a scout leader of 12- and 13-year old boys. We were preparing for our annual winter (Klondike) camp-out and I decided to test these bags.
The boys came on a weeknight for our pre-campout meeting. It was a cold winter night with temperatures between 10 and 20 degrees outside, plus the added chill of the blowing wind. I told the boys that we were learning about keeping warm in the winter and the activity was testing an emergency sleeping bag. They were dressed as you would expect for 12- and 13-year old boys: shorts and a lightweight t-shirt or something similar. I had them stand outside and climb into an emergency sleeping bag and stay there until they got too cold.
Well, the experiment worked in two ways! First, the boys kept safely warm and could have stayed out in the weather a long time. And second, I had the easiest evening I’ve ever had as a scout leader!
The Emergency Sleeping bag is ideal for the glove compartment of your automobile, your backpack, and your emergency kit. The bag is specially designed to retain up to 80% of radiated body heat to help preserve crucial warmth. The emergency bag can be used as an emergency sleeping bag, thermal ground covering or even as a radar reflector! This bag is large enough to cover from head to toe (84" x 36”), yet folds down small enough to fit in a pocket. Any way you look at it, you get a powerful pocketful of warmth with an Emergency Bag from Emergency Essentials.
