From the picture, ( if that is the one in your aviatar) I can't tell what material it is made from.

The ones I have are made from that space/emergency blanket material

Can be warm enough, but zero on the breathability part.

the one on my picture is my sleeping pad

"but zero on the breathability part" does that mean it will get all moisty inside

I have read in wars past people shot their horses then crawled inside to survive the night in the warm carcass.

I know a WWII soldier who personally told me he and a buddy in France had lost their winter clothes, and couldn't build a fire because of the enemy so they kept warm that night by sleeping in a manure pile.

Those silly silver survival blankets will kill you. They are a moisture barrier and will only get you wet. Not what you want when the temperature is freezing. Remember, you can die from hypothermia when temps drop into the 40's. The survival blankets are better used as a heat reflector and not a blanket to wrap up inside of.

When I worked in the Security field, I tested many so called survival products and most of them are rubbish.
