Topic - Scotland winter emergency shelter - placky bag, heatsheet etc?

iksander on 10 Jan 2013
While I have a standard orange placky bag and a bothy bag (and a bivvy bag...) I've always preferred to take nothing when winter climbing, reckoning on squidging my mashed limbs into my empty rucksack and wrapping my in case of emergency.

However I now have 20 burning a hole in my pocket, and wondering if I should upgrade to something more space age? I undertand the blizzard bags are pretty much impossible to re-holster once deployed but that doesn't really bother me because I wouldn't plan on making a habit of using it.

Are the reflexcell (sp?) ones better than "heat sheets", heatsheet bags - or should I just hope my partner has one?
