I've got nothing helpful to add I'm sorry to say, but I am interested in hearing what you go for and why. A quality wool blanket is on my shopping list as well.

So, I've being looking at wool blankets for outdoors or emergency use. So far I'm inclined to get a couple of Italian Army ones http://www.amazon.com/Rothco-European-Surplus-Style-Blanket/dp/B005HMHW2A/ref=pd_sim_468_5?ie=UTF8&dpID=41RlxnQMjmL&dpSrc=sims&preST=_AC_UL160_SR160%2C160_&refRID=072P7V7M3Y0DSVGEE8SHThere are others, accordind to the 'nets the Swedish or Bulgarian Army ones are pretty good. The reason I'm looking at the Italian ones is size/weight ratio, also price and availability.Any thoughts or recommendations are very welcome. Thanks in advance.
Why should an officer have a warmer blanket? Soldiers do most of the fighting. Στάλθηκε από το LG-V500 μου χρησιμοποιώντας Tapatalk

I'm grabbing another Lesotho blanket when I go race there next month. Not cheap at around $60 but so warm. http://maliba-lodge.com/blanketwrap/2010/lesotho-stories/the-history-of-the-basotho-traditional-blanket/
Are they wool blankets?Thanks to fleece and PEP Stores I doubt I've every even seen an wool blanket!
From the text, "The traditional blankets differ from most modern blankets in that they are almost entirely made of wool (88% wool and 12% cotton), hence their rougher and firmer texture."They are wool and cost a pretty penny, R800 - R900 is worth it. Have you seen the snow up there.
