An emergency blanket is an important part of any safety kit.
You should always keep an emergency blanket on hand with you if you’re going to go kayaking. This is especially the case if you intend on kayaking in areas that are away from civilization, or if you want to go kayak touring for long periods of time. After all, you never know what might happen, and it’s a good idea to be prepared for anything – especially when you’re talking about being out in the wilderness.
An emergency blanket is a good thing to have with you in case you end up needing to spend a night or two outdoors. These blankets are designed to keep people warm even if they are in very cold weather. Considering that if you are ever in that situation, you will more than likely be damp from the water and very cold, and emergency blanket is even more important, since it is probably the only blanket that will keep you warm in that situation.
In general, if you’re going to go kayaking in the wilderness (whether you’re going to go down a river, across a large lake, or out at sea), you should always make sure that you have an extensive safety kit with you. An emergency blanket will be a big part of that kit, but there are a few other things you should put in it just in case they are needed.
Even if you are not in a situation where you will need the emergency blanket to keep warm, it can still come in handy. In some situations, you might be able to use it as a tarp, or if needed, as a type of tent to keep the rain off. Either way, it’s a good idea to have one if you’re going to be in the woods for a prolonged period of time.
There are two other things that you should do (although doing either of these does not mean that you should forget about an emergency blanket). First of all, you should always make sure that several other people are aware of what your route is and how long you were supposed to be gone. That way, if you turn up missing, people will have some way to know where to look. The other thing you should do, is to make sure that you are kayaking with
another person at all times.
In any case, an emergency blanket is a highly useful part of an effective and well-put-together safety kit.
