<< Hi BotleNeck,
 I just push it in a quart size zip-loc baggie compress the air out and zip
 it up.  I put a rubber band around the baggie.  This will serve the
 purpose.  It would take a whole thru-hike to rewrap the blanket the way it
 was when you bought it.  I've seen a heavy duty blanket at Campmor.  Jeeez
 now I have to drive 1 1/2 hours to Campmor to get the price and model
 number for you :)  Next time I'm there I'll get the info if somebody
 doesn't pass it on before hand.  That doesn't mean I won't go back to
 Campmor before I leave for Springer the end of February.
 Have a good one.
 i got a question to i unraveled mine and tried and tried to get it as small
 as a ziploc bag?  how did you do it it is one of those puzzled like "get the
 funcky shaped rings apart and back together" that you buy for kids this time
 a year.  i can not figure out how to get it bag to anythgin similar to it
 original size.
 and i also heard someone talk of a heavy duty space blanket?  where do you
 buy that i want to know
Heavy duty space blankets are at: K-Mart, WalMart, almost anywere that sales
sporting goods. Or from any one of these online catalogs.
