This is one of those ideas that make me bonk my head and go, “Why didn’t I think of that!” It reminds me of a solar hot-dog cooker. Aluminum foil might also work just fine for this application although it would clearly not be as durable as this product. [via] – Link

Looks like one of those heavier reflective-type windshield shades might work for a lot less-I have one that rolls up just as easy…you could also use it for a ground cover to keep your body heat close on cold nights…
Reflective laminate = potato chip bags (metallized polyester). There are a lot of materials that will do this cheaply, but it’s a great idea that none of us thought of.
wouldn’t a mylar emergency blanket work just as well? not to mention come in a nice folded little package
What an awesome, simple idea.
I think the curvature of the shield below the chair would be hard to duplicate w/a space blanket and is important to the function.
