I'm not sure what emergency stuff everyone carries, but at the begining of this year I bought some splinting material from a source that I used to use in the military. They are great to deal with, offer a few options on split materials (rolled, flat, different lengths and colors) and I don't know that I have found a cheaper source.

Sure a flattened or rolled splint may weigh me down by 4 ounces or so, but aren't you glad I have it when you tweak that wrist or forearm blocking that tree from hitting your vitals?

simple and light splint i use is some courogated plastic - the sign kinda shit.

crease it around the arm or leg and throw some heli straps on. can also double as a semi insulated seat

Caminga, I have used sheets and rolls of corrigated and rolled plastic, but never in the cold. In warm weather they have worked well enough. How does it hold up in the cold? Does it become brittle? I have used this malleable aluminum stuff too, and I think it works great. I have splinted ankles, lower legs and mostly forearms and wrists. Your plastic is likely lighter a bit. If you say it holds up to cold well then maybe I will get some of that too, if cut and padded well on the cut edges your plastic sheet stuff makes a pretty nice c-spine neck brace which is much tougher to make out of my rolled aluminum.
