I'm trying find a solution to my dilemma that I have to leave my thermo racquet bag in the car trunk in the morning, so that I can go to the tennis club to play right after I leave work in the evening. And ..... I found this.

The racquets will be in the car trunk for about 10 hours. Say if I take each blankets and wrap it around each racquet and seal it with rubber band. Will that help?

Why are you that worried about it? I don't think the cold will hurt anything.

Your best bet, if at all possible, is to bring your racquets into work with you during the day. Emergency blankets have virtually no insulating properties to protect your equipment from conducted heat, which you would find in a cars trunk etc.. Emergency blankets are very efficient reflectors of infrared energy though, like the heat that comes off of your body.

Agreed. The lined compartments in bags are useless gimmicks. Take the racquets inside.

Get a locker at the club or bring them in work.

May have nothing to do with this but those NATO water and windproof matches look pretty cool.
