great ground cover
i use this blanket as a lightweight ground cover for backpacking in the sierra nevada mountains for my wife and me mainly to keep our stuff clean. we do not typically bring a tent, we just use this, our sleeping pad, a warm down bag, and a second emergency blanket for rain protection if needed. It holds up great for week long trips. It should be noted that it can be fussy to use in high winds, other than that, these are great to bring along!
