It is unique in its combination of light weight and excellent thermal performance, while allowing wearers total freedom of movement.
Applications include everything from military deployment, marine and mountain rescue, to civil evacuations and disasters.
Blizzard Survival Jackets are particularly valuable in situations involving walking wounded. They are equally useful for bystanders at accidents, who often become severely chilled while attention is focused on the casualty.
Our Jackets are increasingly being chosen as standard equipment by military users, emergency services, civil emergency planners, medical authorities and rescue teams. Outdoor Sports: Many hikers, climbers, cavers, canoeists, mountain rescue teams, ski mountaineers, adventure racers and others carry the Blizzard Survival Jackets as a safety product in case of accidents or emergencies.
By carrying a few Blizzard Survival Jackets, a group leader can give instant help to individuals at risk of developing Hypothermia, without having to stop the whole group, or disrupt activities. Rescue teams carry Blizzard Jackets to deal with this eventuality before it makes a bad situation worse.

Hot tips If the arms are brought inside the garment it will be even warmer. The hands can then be used to close the front opening of the hood, creating a mini personal tent. You can now eat, drink or map-read in a warm, sheltered environment. If you sit or squat down, the jacket can be pulled down to cover almost the entire body. NSN #: 8415-99-574-0495
