I agree that bigger would be ideal.

I've attached a better image showing more typical conditions. That first picture was taken after the CF that occurred with 40mph winds and scrambling to remove fuel from the fire before the reactor totally melted down. This type of fire pit generally does a remarkable job of burning everything down to fine ash and that was the only time we had anything outside the blanket.

If you can come up with a few bucks more, avoid the fiberglass Horrible Fright blanket like the plague and pay a few bucks more for a good fire blanket. If you ever have to actually use it and deal with it in camp, it'll be worth it. You'll regret having the POS fiberglass blanket every time you have to use it.
You're so much more eloquent than Marshall! OK, I'm sold!

Those are the conditions you really need a blanket for though.
