I keep in my car something similar to Land Shark’s Tactical Survival Shelter. You may want to do the same. Eric Davis from Loadoutroom.com had this to say about the Land Shark.
If you get outside and get your adventure on then you already know the importance of emergency shelters, blankets and signaling.
Should the “S” hit the “F” and you find yourself and / or your family needing to stay alive so that you don’t become coyote food you’ll want a couple of these things stashed in your vehicles and ready bags.
To be seen or not to be seen
The Land Shark survival shelter comes in multiple colors as well so if you’re on the run in bad-guy land you can use their “Stealth” set up to defeat observation or detection.
Should your sorry ass be stranded somewhere you may choose to deploy one of the brighter shelters so tall dark and handsome, or short blond and hot (your call – nobody’s watching) can come rescue you while you’re sleeping snuggly in your survival shelter.
Here’s how the Land Shark web page describes the Land Shark Instant Survival Shelter and Stealth Bag:
Even walking around will build up a sweat. Pretty soon you’re shivering. Suddenly, the conditions are ripe for hypothermia – the involuntary loss of core body heat. Windy, wet conditions, including perspiration, can quickly turn exposure into fatal hypothermia – even in mild temperatures. Hypothermia can kill in temperatures of 65-degrees Fahrenheit. Your best defense is to find shelter that’s warm, dry and out of the wind. Survival experts also warn against building a shelter that requires anything more than minimal effort, because it will only work up a chilling sweat and hasten the onset of hypothermia. Stored in its water, vapor and grease-proof vacuum sealed pouch, the ultra-lightweight Land Shark Instant Survival Shelter measures only 6” x 8” x 1” and weighs a mere 22 oz. (0.623 kg.). When needed, it opens to a windproof, waterproof, heat-retaining and roomy 38” x 80” (96.52 cm x 203.2 cm) thermal cocoon that provides full body coverage, even over heavy outerwear and boots. It then protects you from exposure and helps you maintain a life-sustaining core body temperature until help arrives.
