Received in timely manner. They are thinner than I expected but hopefully will hold up in an emergency. Orange on outside and silver mylar on inside to retain body heat. Came folded flat in a small plastic bag that you can never get it back into. Fortunately it also comes with a nylon bag that can hold it. The poncho comes down between my knees and ankles , I'm 6 ft 2 in, and seems to have plenty of room for a backpack. I will keep one in my bag and one in my truck for emergencys.
