How do people deal with that - are they just more popular outdoors in arid climates?
Only used in shelters? Something else?
I'm influenced by modern camping but I would have thought a blanket shouldn't get wet, if it were rolled up inside a bed-roll it would stay dry, then put on a ground sheet under a shelter, just the same as a sleeping bag that would be put inside a dry-sack then attached to a pack and at the campsite it would stay dry inside a tent? or is it harder to keep stuff dry if the tent isn't fully enclosed?
