    I carry a blue plastic MSC "Pocket survival bag" in my belt pouch.
    I wear the hunting belt and two pouches almost all the time, specially when heading off down the side for a crap or to collect water (once had to sleep out with only a billy and tilley lamp - never again). The kits have a lot of other bits and pieces in them but two other key bits are two compasses and a spare small headlamp (Petzal Zipka) and spare batteries which help a lot in not having to spend the night out.

    The plastic survival bag can also be used over my sleeping bag under a fly if it starts to rain so I can push the envelope a bit more and I never carry a proper tent or bivvy bag, just rely on a fly. After a few years the blue survival bag gets a bit worn out and manky just from carrying and needs replacement so I'm not shy to break it out and use it under a fly in the rain when it seems needed. Even after use it folds up pretty small again.

    I've also slept out with a foil survival blanket once. It felt lovely and warm when we spread it over ourselves but he rolled one way and I rolled the other way and it tore right down the middle.

    I'm against using a PLB to substitute for actual survival gear.

    One warning, some of the tin foil space blankets DO NOT mix with fire..... Think melting plastic and a cold night keeping the fire roaring

    I agree, I had a hunting mate badly sprain his ankle to the point we thought he had broken it. Hence the idea of a plb.

    I was Thar hunting a few years ago now and got caught out with only a tinfoil blanket, found it next to useless. Most warmth I got was throwing it on the fire.

    I have one of those EMG Sol bivy bags & some fire lighting stuff but realistically your probably not going to light a fire if your caught out late, so you just need something to keep you dry & a bit of warmth, it's going to be a very long cold night! Put all your clothes on, get in the bag somewhere out of the wind & wait it out.
