    silent space blanket

    i have the hhss and a sb works beyond expectations - but it's noisy in wind or when i move around... not too stealthy. is there a 'silent' yet thin & light space blanket in existence? nb, i don't care about windshield/bubblewrap type solutions.

    There is reflective fabric with some sort of silvered coating. I thought Warbonnet used it in the Yeti or experimented with it for a time, I can't recall.

    You can look at "Insul-brite" it's a space-blanket sandwitched in between thin polyester batting... It's warm, but bulky. $7/yd at walmart or joanne's... On a dry day, every movement generates static electricity... only to discharge later... not a big deal, but slightly surprising...

    This is silent but not as durable. Weigh in plastic wrap, 78 gram = 2.751 369 032 1 ounce. Volume about the same as the noisy sibling.

    Many users have previously recommended the Adventure Medical Heat Sheet as a quieter soloution.

    I've not experience with it at this point, but its only a few dollars more than a regular mylar SB so probably worth a try.

    I used a heatsheet under my hammock and a thermarest trail in-between my dual layer BB on the 1st annual Florida hang about a week ago. I was completely warm and cozy with the temperature getting down to 26 degrees. I got a couple of snickers from a few people about my makeshift underquilt, but some of those same people were packing up around midnight from the cold. I was thinking about sewing a heatsheet into the bottom of the underquilt I'm making, hope to make a sub-0 degree underquilt using only 12oz of down. Thanks for turning me on to this!

    I use this: http://www.rei.com/product/407106

    ...and it's definitely quieter than a regular mylar sheet, but I wouldn't quite call it stealthy either.
