    My parents had a bunch of wool army blankets when I was a kid. They were the greatest things to have during the winter. Sadly, I think they all got donated to Goodwill over the years.

    I have an inflatable mattress, so I put the blanket underneath me to stop heat loss and cover it with a sheet. Toasty warm and no itch.

    Mine came from the estate of one of my wife's relatives. It is currently in the back of the Jeep for emergencies/lake days.

    For those of you who want a quality blanket you can pass on to your descendants.

    Modular Sleep System, or Improved Modular Sleep System. You'll never be cold at night again.

    We pretty much only have wool blankets. All of them are 40 + years old and passed down to us. I have a Swiss army blanket from that is supposedly from WWII. I got it for $5. Omaha Militia in FT Worth Tx 25 years ago. Itch isn't a problem because if it's cold enough for a blanket we are wearing pajamas that prevent itch. Two years ago my son and I were camping, there was an unexpected and freakishly cold snap. It got down to -15 any we only had three wool blankets between the two of us but we were fine.

    Send your extras to Ruben, he could use them with the cold snap they're having in Arkansas now.

    That looks interesting and I wouldn't mind trying it out but at $189 I will have to stick with my wool blankets.
