?? Non-mylar space blanket material? Where do you get such material? I'm
interested. I'm aware of only the "Therno-Lite" material in emergency bivy
sacks by Adventure Medical Kits company. I've used the Thermo-Lite material
as the floor of a tent. It works fairly well, but isn't cheap.
Ron Moak can sell you Tyvek at reasonable cost. A piece 52"x80" from him
was something like $8.50 or $10.00 as I recall. The non-woven Tyvek with
random roving of fibers is not very slick or noisy at all after one trip
through a washing machine (sans soap). I believe that for backpacking it is
better than the woven type used as house wrap.
