How effective are these things? Saw another thread about them recently... Amazon has them on ad today and I'm tempted but wondering if worth the money.

No clue. I like the Sportsman's Blankets, very tough. Their bag looks like its made from the same stuff. I don't do well in a plastic bag - sweating. A blanket is easier to ventilate, plus it can be used as a reflective tarp.

Same price. I plan to take 4 SB and sew them into a tent, with an extra cheap mylar blanket laminated to a roughed up cotton sheet for an inside frost collector and an extra layer of thermal shield - hopefully I can hide from FLIR.

Looks like they changed the name again. I have the ones without the hood in the corner

It looks like you would be trying to sleep in a big potato chip bag. Sergeant survival sleeping bag

4.1 oz. really not much more weight than a std mylar emergency blanket.
IIRC, a heavy weight space blanket comes in at 11oz.

The blanket from REI looks pretty interesting. I already have some mylar survival blankets, keep one in my field jacket (winter coat) and one in my carry on suitcase along with a blanket. (I fly way too much for work so carry a few things like a water filter bottle, protein bars, etc...)

Not ideal but I could probably handle sleeping in a big potato chip bag is it was the only way to stay warm. Moisture getting out is something I'm wondering about and sleeping with head under covers is probably a bad idea I would guess.
