Sherwood Blizzard second stage

Sherwood is kick-starting its UK re-launch with the introduction of the cold water Blizzard regulator.

When developing the Blizzard, Sherwood worked closely with safety services personnel that have to depend on their gear to perform in extremely demanding conditions.

Sherwood has incorporated five low-pressure ports

This reg has a high performance dry first stage. It uses a balanced piston for steady performance, mated to an ergonomic wheel for adjustment.

The two primary flow ports boost outlet pressure to the second stage, giving you more comfortable, easier breathing. Sherwood has incorporated five low-pressure ports enabling a versatile arrangement of hoses to supply your BCD inflator and other ancillary devices.

The Blizzard has a sealed spring chamber to prevent water and contaminants from internal damage. A dust cap protects internal parts from contaminants when not in use.

Other clever touches include a ribbed connector which acts as a heat exchanger to reduce air cooling in cold conditions. Visually, the Blizzard has an efficient low profile exhaust deflector and large flexible purge cover. Finally, a wisdom mouthpiece reduces jaw fatigue.        

Sherwood proudly states: “the Blizzard has become the top choice of cold water divers worldwide”, which means it should prove popular with your average British diver. It will cost £349.00.
