Imagine a sandwich of two space blankets, separated by horizontal baffles, threaded with elastic cord. This unique structure, which Blizzard calls Reflexcell, traps a layer of air between two layers of metalized plastic, creating a uniquely warm, light sleeping bag. Though it's primarily designed for emergency use, the Survival Bag is reusable, making it a potential candidate for weeklong ultralight trips, or an addendum to a fleece blanket or a warmer bag during shoulder season trips.
