This was the first blanket I bought and sense then I have bought a lot of other ones in search of the perfect backpacking blanket. Now that its been some months and I'm more educated and versed in blankets, this is junk. You quld be wasting your money to buy this. I feel this was $24 thrown down the toilet. Maybe I would use this as a picnic blanket for my family, but that is just trying to find a reason to use it. It's pretty worthless. It hold no heat at all, in comparison to real wool blankets. But to be honest, fleece blankets are the warmest. Look for 440 gram fleece blankets and you will be the warmest.
