Blizzard products represent a quanturn leap in the way both civilian and military trauma cases should be treated and Blizzard’s unique Reflexcell™ material is incorporated into all Blizzard Survival products in military, medical, emergency preparedness and outdoor applications globally.

  • The cells in the material trap warm, still air, providing insulation.
  • The silver reflective surfaces block radiated heat.
  • The elastic causes the material to hug the body, stopping drafts, reducing convection, and keeping the material right next to you where it is needed.
  • The outer layer is completely waterproof and windproof.
  • It works just as well when wet.

The idea of Reflexcell™ was conceived 15 years ago when the founder and managing director of Blizzard Survival, Derek Ryden, realized 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.
