Blizzard Survival hypothermia prevention products utilize a 2-layer Reflexcell material to create insulation between the environment and patient. Blizzard Light is a cost-effective solution for caregivers seeking control when a patient's core temperature drops, even in the warmest conditions. In addition to trauma scenarios, the Blizzard Light blanket can also serve as an emergency insulating blanket in cold weather conditions. Our Reflexcell technology, previously adopted by the US Department of Defense, is now available to consumers worldwide.About Reflexcell:What makes Blizzard's Reflexcell products so warm: 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. Unlike most other insulating materials, ours works just as well when wet.What is the coldest temperature at which Reflexcell products will be warm enough:That depends on many factors: The individual's ability to tolerate cold. The amount of other clothing worn. Wind-chill. Duration of exposure. Insulation from the ground.As a rough guide, if you are wearing the type of clothes appropriate for the season and you make some effort to find a sheltered spot and put some insulation underneath you, then in spring, summer and autumn you should be warm and comfortable. In winter you may not be so comfortable, but you should be able to survive for several days in all but the most extreme conditions.How strong is Reflexcell material:Surprisingly strong. Single layer reflective blankets are very fragile because they are easily punctured, and once a tear has started to develop, it rips right across the material. This doesn't happen to Reflexcell material because: The three layers reinforce each other, and even if one is damaged, the others usually remain intact. The seams in the material act like the thick threads in ripstop nylon, stopping tears from developing. Materials only tear when they are pulled tight. The elastic in the Reflexcell material helps to keep the material in a relaxed state if it doesn't get pulled tight, it doesn't tear.Of course the material can be damaged (it'should be kept away from sharp objects) but even if this happens, it will continue to keep you warm.Don't reflective products reflect the cold back to you:Technically the answer is no. Physicists tell us that whereas radiated heat can be reflected, cold cannot. It is true that if the surface of your body is cold, it will emit very little radiated heat, so that reflecting this back to you will only make a very small difference to getting you warmer. But it is scientifically impossible for a material to reflect cold back to you and make you colder.Fortunately, unlike other reflective products, most of Reflexcell's warming ability comes from trapped air...
