have seen a fleece picnic blanket in a local store that has quite a thick vapour/waterproof barrier underneath and wondered if anybody has used this sort of thing before to keep the cold out or is it just not man enough???

Don't know if it's the same thing, but we have a closet full of something like that. Fleece blanket with a nylon layer on one side that has a zipper pocket and some straps & clasps so that the whole thing rolls up into a bundle and clips on a shoulder strap. It was a freebie giveaway at a business conference, and strikes me as a cheap novelty, and not particularly engineered for anything more advanced than what it is - a picnic blanket. Also used for covering the back seat when transporting dogs. I have not tested its wind- or moisture-resistance. Though it looks like the sort of thing you might bundle up with at a football game, or hold over your head as you run back to your car. The zippers and straps are annoying and always seem in the way.
