Super warm and comfy!
This is amazingly warm. I recently took a camping van up to alaska, during the springtime, with projected temperatures in the single-digits (farenheit). In addition to some other heating techniques such as a heated mattress pad, this worked very nicely, and limited the need for electric heaters. Kept the better half nice and toasty.
Didn't get to use it outdoors, but indoors, it worked nicely. Instantly upon putting it on, you can feel the warmth radiating back at you.
Probably the only slight negative in using it as a blanket is that the waterproof side is very slippery, it's hard to put other blankets over it, and keep it in place. And there's a slight rustling/crinkly noise when adjusting it. Not a complaint, just -- those parts make it not behave 100% like your normal blanket.

VERY warm blanket. My only problem is the ripstop side....it's cold and noisy. Seriously, the black side seems to be colder than the ambient temperature. There are great fabrics out there that are waterproof and durable while still being soft and noiseless. I have a camelback backpack in this stuff they call 'silentcloth' which would be perfect for this, as well as other gore-tex fabrics I've seen. I think I'm going to end up making my own...same polar fleece, same primaloft, just a different material on the back and a better edging.
It is really warm though!

I originally bought this for myself but after it came my kids loved it so much I had to give it to them to use sitting on the sidelines at soccer. It is super warm, the entire team was using it today. Then I found the mambo hooded blanket which I got for myself, totally love both of these blankets. I would highly recommend for anyone who has to put up with the cold at multipal soccer game n day. It was pricy and I was hesitant but after using this weekend it's worth every penny. Thank you for a great product!

Excellent blanket. Really kept me warm at a football game that was cold and rainy. Absolutely water repellent!!

Love love love this blanket. The blue is beautiful. The size is large - I was able to share with a friend (who loaned her mambe blanket to the soccer girls sitting on the bench) whilel each still sitting on our own sideline chairs. So warm and soft. Keeps the wind completely out. Worth the money. Quality, for sure.

WARMEST LITTLE BLANKET EVER
This is if you REALLY want to be warm on a cold night.,, warm, i mean really warm. Find myself waking up covered in sweat a few times. Bought them for camping because i hate sleeping bags. Doesn't really work as a replacement. Unfortunately, not quite big enough to be a good cover by itself since it's stiff. Mainly Knocked a start off because it is NOISY... Sounds like your crumpling up paper if you move. NEVER SLEEP on one, soooooo hot. really uncomfortable, wish it actually breathed.

Although the price is high, this is a wonderful blanket for those chilly nights next to a campfire. Have ordered one of these and four others, a step down from the extreme. Only thing that could be better is if you could zip yourself inside them.

Excellent for warmth cutting wind or rain. Only downside is size; it needs to be 7x9 or larger.
