You get a soft rustle when you move around, but not as load as you would imagine. If you are really concerned with noise, I would at least use an AMK HeatSheet for the outer cover. 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.

    Would love to hear about how this worked out or if the space bivy idea was better. Also if anyone has used amk blankets instead. Thanks!

    Just a quick bump of this thread. I am interested in making something like this. Wondering if anyone could give a performance update?
