Ever Ready First Aid Fire Retardent Blanket

Keeping you Safe and Cozy

Ever Ready First Aid Blanket does it all. With its olive green color and 70-80% wool composition, the model is very similar to the blanket issued in the military. It is particularly durable and dependable, perfect for camping, hunting, and other outdoor activities.

This thing is able to trap body heat even under the most extreme conditions. It is just as suitable for emergencies as it is for everyday use.

With its fire-retardant material, the model is able to grant enough peace of mind to make you feel comfortable around campfires and fireplaces.

The high wool content doesn't just work wonders trapping the body heat but also making the blanket much softer and more comfortable compared to synthetic blankets.

The size makes a difference too. Measuring 62" x 80" in overall dimensions, the model will be able to fully cover just about any adult. More often than not, you'll have no issues sharing the blanket with another person.

We really like the color. It looks cozy and meshes well with outdoor settings. The only problem is that the blanket can start fading a little after some time, so try not to wash it too often.

Other than that, Ever Ready First Aid Blanket is cozy, comfortable, reliable, and practical. The model is great for hiking and camping trips. It works indoors as well as it does outdoors. The blanket will prove an excellent addition to any emergency kit.

Neiko 10908A

Protect Your Valuables

Neiko 10908A is a really good welding blanket. First and foremost, its fiberglass composition is 100% flame-retardant. It will be able to do great work preventing property damages from sparks and spatter.

Incorporating 19.8 ounces of fiberglass per square yard, the blanket is as strong as they come. But its partial fiberglass construction isn't the only thing that makes the model so strong.

The premium weaving pattern, for one thing, is another little detail that does an excellent job adding extra durability and making sure the model lasts throughout multiple usages.

Apart from that, there isn't necessarily much here that we haven't seen before. The model features tough brass grommets every 11 inches to make sure you're able to hang it in your work environment easily and securely.

You won't have to worry about fraying the hems with the model's reinforced 3/8" I.D. hem. This way, loose ends will not interfere with your work.

Having said that, the blanket isn't necessarily perfect on the durability front. It is good but the stitching is passable at best.

But, even taking that into account, Neiko 10908A is an excellent welding fire blanket. It is light and flexible but, at the same time, robust and durable. You can hang it vertically and horizontally. The blanket will not fail to protect your valuables from major damages.

ABN Fire Retardant Blanket

Prevents Accidents and Injuries

ABN Heavy-Duty Fiberglass Fire-Retardant Blanket is about as versatile as fire blankets come. Primarily, the model is a welding blanket. It will be able to prevent accidents, injuries, as well as property damage that can be caused by sparks, flares, and splatter. At the same time, the model has many different applications.

You can use it to protect your furniture, flooring, and wood railings. It is just as suitable for protecting yourself from sparks, molten metal, embers, and heat coming from welders as well as grills, smokers, and similar things.

The model is particularly durable. Its tight weaving pattern is 30 x 30 per inch². The pattern does an excellent job keeping the bound together as well as reducing wear and tear for ultimate durability.

The pattern is the reason the blanket is able to deliver long-term, repeated use. At the same time, the model is pliable like any regular blanket and folds up to a compact 14” x 13” x 2” size for easy transport, convenient storage, and quick organization.

It could be a little heavier. The manufacturers definitely do not recommend cutting the blanket into smaller sections. But that's the case with welding blankets in general.

To sum it all up, ABN Heavy-Duty Fiberglass Fire-Retardant Blanket will be able to keep you and your stuff safe and secure. The model does it all. Considering the price, there isn't much to complain about here.

Tonyko Fiberglass Fire Blanket

Fire Insulation Anywhere

The biggest difference between Tonyko Fiberglass Fire Blanket and every other model on the list probably lies with the available sizes.

The smallest blanket measures 39.3" x 39.3" in overall dimensions. Including this blanket, you can choose between 47.2" x 47.2", 59" x 59", 47.2" x 70.9", 70.9" x 70.9", and 78.7" x 78.7". With so many sizes available, you should be able to select the one that's suitable for your needs and preferences.

You can use a blanket like that in various places. As an emergency survival fire blanket, it will prove useful in the kitchen as well as around fireplaces, grills, cars, camping sites, the list goes on.

The blanket will be able to suffocate and extinguish many different fires, including liquid and grease fire. You can wrap this thing around your body and it will act as a heat shield.

The biggest difference between the blanket and any fire extinguisher is that the blanket will be able to keep the place tidy after extinguishing a fire. It comes with a nice little package with practical tapes to release the blanket.

As far as we're concerned, the only issue with the model is that there's a slight chemical smell to it.

Apart from that, Tonyko Fiberglass Fire Blanket isn't necessarily too versatile but the model is definitely practical. It is equally suitable for residential and commercial use. You can put it in an office, warehouse, restaurant, amusement building, ship, car, just about any construct, gas station, etc.

FYJ Emergency Blankets Survival Fiberglass Fire Blanket

The Size (Dis)advantage

FYJ Emergency Blanket is the cheapest product on the list. It's not necessarily a commentary on its quality though.

As far as we're concerned, the only major problem with the blanket that prevents it from scoring higher on the list is that the only available option measures 39" x 39" in overall dimensions. The problem with the size is that it's just not enough to fully cover your average adult.

Other than that, there's nothing here that separates the model from every other product here. As far as thermal protection goes, the blanket is just as capable of isolating temperatures up to 1022°F. You can just as well wrap the blanket around your body to use it as a heat shield.

The aforementioned size has its advantages too. Along with the package incorporating easy-to-pull tapes to release the blanket, the model is compact enough to fit just about anywhere.

It isn't necessarily a replacement for a fire extinguisher but we would recommend placing a blanket like that next to one. It is much better with smaller fire hazards. A blanket like that doesn't create a mess afterward.

All in all, FYJ Emergency Blanket isn't the best option on the market today but its price-performance ratio is really good. The model's size is its biggest advantage and disadvantage at the same time.

What Is a Fire Blanket?

A fire blanket is one of those things that not too many people have but many people will be able to benefit from. These blankets come in different forms and sizes but, generally speaking, they all fall under two categories: first-aid blankets, welding blankets, and anything in-between.

First-aid blankets will be great for camping, hunting, and other outdoor activities. They will make you feel cozy and comfortable around campfires and fireplaces.

Welding blankets aren't as comfortable. You can wrap a blanket like that around your body and it will act as a heat shield. But, more often than not, people use these blankets to prevent property damages from sparks and spatter.

As far as characteristics are concerned, you have to look at the thermal protection capabilities first and foremost. A good fire blanket should be able to isolate temperature up to 1000 degrees Fahrenheit. Other than that, it's the little things. With welding blankets, make sure that the model comes equipped with grommets that will help you hang it around your workplace.

Often find yourself camping? These camping stoves and camping cots will be able to help you with that.
