The Blizzard Survival brand incorporating its unique and innovative Reflexcell™ material has established itself as the leader in lightweight, compact survival protection. From the outset it was designed with walkers and climbers in mind to help them survive emergency situations in cold conditions, but it will be equally effective for anyone undertaking activities in the outdoors.
Completely different from a traditional “space blanket” Reflexcell™ . Cellular construction traps warm air, giving vastly superior warmth over any comparable product.
Other survival bags may protect you from the worst of the weather, but you will usually be very cold, damp and uncomfortable. In cool conditions they will not stop you becoming hypothermic. People who have used old-fashioned, single layer silver blankets in emergencies report disastrous results: blankets disintegrating when unpacked, ripping in the wind, and not giving any feeling of warmth.
Blizzard products provide you with unrivalled thermal qualities, even in cold conditions, and in a real emergency will keep you alive over a prolonged period.
The idea of Reflexcell™ was conceived 15 years ago when the founder and managing director of Blizzard Survival, Derek Ryden, realised that outdoor enthusiasts and professionals needed something more effective than plastic bivvy bags and lighter than conventional sleeping bags.
An engineer by profession, and today still an active mountaineer, Derek invented Reflexcell™, a super-lightweight material that provides unprecedented thermal performance in the most demanding conditions. He also designed and built the machinery and production processes that manufacture Reflexcell™ and convert it into Blizzard Survival products.
Now, following exhaustive in-house testing and trials performed by the US Army Institute of Surgical Research, the Blizzard Survival Blanket has been endorsed by the US Army Medical Center Directorate of Combat and Doctrine Development and is the only blanket used to train Army medics in the treatment of hypothermia.
