"BASHA" TSS MK-1 (Thermal Field Blanket™)—MICROLITE
OPEN— 58W" x 76L" with built in 11D" Foot pockets for sleep/litter (or utilized as a hood/poncho).
How it works—
Turn your Comfort Layer to the sun to stay cool in the heat of day as it blacks out UV radiation / the suns radiant energy.
In cold weather the BASHA works with your body heat to maintain a 60-70 degree cocoon around you, even in sub zero weather. The BASHA works very well at sweat management as you stop from a hike or ruck march and wrap around your sweaty clothes—it creates a comfortable sauna vs a cold damp chill from evaporation. Tuck the BASHA away and get back on the move.
The next component of the Thermal Survival System™ is our TSS Second Line MICROLOFT Insulated Thermal Field Blanket™ and will be available soon in our webstore.

We call this Thermal Survival Panel the BASHA—First Line Blanket™ because it is the leanest meanest all weather-multi use component to the patent pending Thermal Survival System.
The BASHA is the entry element into the upcoming complete survival system as it is the most compact component. The British SAS call this element a "BASHA" as it can be utilized as a protective tarp, a heat reflective poncho, a ground sheet, a shelter—and for the military, an expedient hide with thermal /RF mitigating capabilities.
Layer One—The Comfort Layer
The BASHA has an incredibly lightweight/ compact high tech / high tensile (350 pounds) strength breathable layer that is weatherproof with wicking capabilities to manage sweat and condensation — as well as rapid drying capability if it does get saturated...it works in perfect harmony with our heat reflective Weather Layer.
Layer Two—The Weather Layer
The second layer is a specialized heat reflective / waterproof ripstop nylon we call the Weather Layer. This layer is turned to the rain or snow to keep you warm and dry.
BASHA Attachment Points
Rubber handles are on the top corners, with Velcro handles on the midsections of the panel to help grab in an emergency (drag litter or pole litter)—, grommets provides tie down points and carabiner locations. Every part of the First Line Blanket™ has multiple functions to make this the ultimate Swiss Army Knife of survival blankets.
