Like car insurance, you buy a Blizzard Blanket or bag hoping that you’ll never need to use one. But just like car insurance it’s a must have for anyone spending time in the mountains.
Blizzard Survival Blankets and Bags are a revolution in thermal protection for any situation where people need to be kept warm or treated immediately for chilling and hypothermia.
We hope that every day out in the mountains is a safe one but with hundreds of thousands of people climbing Snowdon each year and many millions more venturing out into the hills it’s inevitable that accidents will happen. Knowing how to deal with them can be the difference between life and death.
We’re often asked by clients coming on our popular National Navigation Award Scheme (NNAS) and Mountain Training courses which is the best compass for navigating in the hills. We always have the same answer; the Expedition 4 compass from Swedish navigation experts Silva.
So what makes this compass different from something you could buy for less on Amazon? Well there’s the manufacturer’s history (the men behind Silva actually invented the liquid filled compass back in 1933). It’s been the most popular selling compass for decades and it’s recommended by the DofE for their young people on expedition.
