Besides the basic problem of being cold, exposure will lead to shivering, difficulty with using the hands, apathy and the danger of hypothermia. Lifesystems' Survival Thermal Bag retains radiated body heat, reduces windchill and provides temporary body protection. It is also windproof and waterproof. The Survival Bag is recommended protection for emergencies in any environment subject to sudden weather change, having proved its effectiveness with mountain rescue teams for many years.
