Polish wool blanket, thick, surplus
Just like most ex-com bloc blankets, the Polish one is very thick and, unlike we initially expected, is made of real wool instead of cat-and-brick blend.
Before sleeping bags, there were blankets. Well, OK, some countries still probably use blankets, but you get the general idea. While there's a reason why sleeping bags became "mainstream", the good ol' blanket still has a few advantages: it's very durable and tough, easy to clean and when talking about military use, easy to throw off in case of a hasty bug-out.
These are made of wool or wool/acrylic mix. They let perspiration out and are warm even when wet. Hooray for wool! The sizes vary, because there's no measurement units in Poland, but most are something around 1,5 x 2 m - the next one might be a tad smaller, the second a bit bigger etc... We won't pick the largest we can find, please don't ask. Being army surplus and cheap for what they are, you just have to accept these kind of little variations. Hey, it's still a good man-sized blanket!
In used but serviceable condition. Any warehouse smells they have will fade out in use.

Tuhottoman hyvä nukkumaväline, jopa siinä määrin, että heitin normaalin peittoni hemmettiin ja livautin tämän lakanan kera normaaliksi peitokseni. Ollut nyt rapiat kuukauden käytössä ja huopa tarjoaa joka yö muhevat unet.
Omassa yksilössäni ei ollut sivuhajuja, törkyä tai muutakaan moittimista. Oikein siistikuntoinen.

Shipping was fast and and solid packageing. First time I've seen a military blanket wrapped in
bubble wrap. ; )
Will buy more stuff here in the future!
