An Allweather Blanket is a 3x3m layered blanket with a layer of soft pseudowool on one side backed by a layer of waterproof plastic. The blanket will keep a character warm in freezing temperatures down to 0° Celsius.
It is extremely lightweight, providing negligible encumbrance when carried.
The blankets found in survival kits are brightly colored for high visibility, but commercial ones are available in a wide variety of colors and patterns, including a multitude of camouflage prints.
Due to its impermeability, the blanket can be used to carry water.
If used to line a pit in the desert with plastic side up, it will collect one liter of dew overnight, depending on local humidity.
Due to its sheer size, it can be used as a tent, if appropriate support can be obtained.
