      I am a Divemaster and have dove this reg numerous times to depths of 80plus feet, in temps below 0 degrees and NEVER once had a freeflow. I absolutely would buy this reg again.

        Bought this reg 2 months ago and have used it 5.5 hours so far to a max of 100 ft in 54 degree water with both air and Nitrox. Easy breathing and comfortable. Bought it specifically based on its cold weater reputation and am looking forward to using it with confidence in colder water as the season progresses.

          Comments about Sherwood Blizzard Regulator:

          I dont have to tell you Sherwood makes quality gear, and the blizzard is no exception. Originally purchased for cold water diving but works just as well in warm water. I like the fact that it creates moisture too. I would recommend the seacure mouthpiece for any reg, makes a huge difference.

              Questions about this item:

              Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
              DIGITAL B  great reg. for all weather /water conditions. The colder it gets the more you'll appreciate this reg.
              Shopper  Is this the Blizzard SRB5900?
              Frank L  No, this is the SRB7900, the newer version.
              lilian c  I am deciding whether to purchase the oasis or the blizzard. Ive heard that the oasis feels like you are not even using a reg. i wonder if the blizzard also offers that feature since jaw fatigue and dry mouth are a big issue for me?
              SCOTT J  I'm quite happy with the Sherwood. It has given me no problems. My suggestion re: jaw fatigue and dry mouth would be that you look into a custom fitted mouthpiece. I am not one who bites on my mouthpiece but in talking with others who do the custom job often resolves the problems at much less expense than a regulator. I have had no difficulty with free flow nor have I had any complaints with restricted or difficult air flow from the Sherwood. I know nothing of the Oasis so can't offer much there. Concerning the dry mouth -- I thought that was a part of breathing compressed air. I treat mine by drinking water and eating oranges between dives. good luck and go down.
