Readers may recall from the September account of the MRC Conference, that we were issued with a free “Blizzard” vest for testing and our observations and comments.
On our Wednesday night training of the 6th October, this vest was demonstrated in front of the 35 team members present, receiving their critical eye.

Today we took the vest out to test it in our team area, by asking members of the public we came across, to try it out and pass on their comments.

Although a sunny day, there was a chilled wind, and the emergency shelter nature of the vest could be demonstrated. 8 passing hill walkers, mountain bikers, and ramblers were all asked for their comments, which will be passed on to Blizzard Survival.
