Walmart Survival Blanket Tarp

Among my top three items in any Bug Out Bag or Get Home Bag is always the All Weather Blanket. For me it is more than just a durable heat reflecting blanket. It is also a tarp and a ground sheet.

This All Weather Blanket has only the 4 corners with the grommets, but I tend to do a simple A-frame setup. You could run a ridge line but I like having grommets. This is easy enough to fix, add Gorilla tape and put in grommets from the Harbor Freight DIY kit which is less than $4.

Personally I like using the bungee cord for a no knot setup, its quick and sometimes I just stake out the other end when I’m sleeping on the ground.

This All Weather Blanket weighs 10 oz, and it measures 5 x 7 feet, which is small for a tarp for a lot of people but it gets me by. Again, I have used this as a replacement for my sleeping bag in southern Florida, it wasn’t the best exprerience but it got me through.

The Grabber All-Weather Blanket, available at Walmart, comes in a variety of colors which can affect the price. Rothco makes a version but it’s twice as expensive as the ones available from Walmart.

Grabber also sells a version that they call a poncho. It has a hood sewed onto one end so it can more easily be worn. The problem is that it is also a foot shorter, 5 x 6, so not much of a tarp option despite the hood.

To find the All Weather Blanket which can be found for as low as $8 at Farmandfleet.com, Walmart.com or on Amazon type All Weather Blanket in the search box.
