You could use all AMK blankets, but they don't crumple as well as the cheapies. The AMK stuff is more durable too.
I'm thinking about trying some of that thin white foam used for shipping and experimenting with layering it with space blankets. That would add bulk when stowed, but reduce noise. It may have some positive thermal properties too. Kind of a poor man's IX.
