Adventure Medical SOL Escape Bivvy Shelter - Adventure Medical Kits SOL Escape Bivvy Shelter - The SOL Escape Bivy from Adventure Medical Kits is nothing less than a revolution in backcountry shelters. The complaint with most ultralight emergency shelters is the same - condensation builds up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes soaking wet. With the Escape Bivy, condensation is no longer an issue, and you never again have to choose between staying dry and staying warm. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside, all while reflecting your body heat back to you. Waterproof seams plus a drawstring hood closure and side zip mean you can seal out the elements entirely or use the bivy like a traditional sleeping bag, and the high-visibility orange exterior makes it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with high tree cover.

I bought several of these for our family's 72-hour bags. We've always had space blankets, which flap in the wind, tear easily, and are hard to wrap securely enough to keep bugs and rain out. These Escape Bivy bags are the perfect answer to sleeping outdoors in an emergency. They're a little thicker and tougher than the Mylar material in space blankets, and they have sealed seams to protect against bugs and rain. They only weigh a few ounces, and the rolled up package is only about the size of a can of soup. These large sized bags are big enough to accommodate medium-to-large sized adults, but probably wouldn't be big enough for really large people. It's important to have it somewhat loose fitting, to trap insulating air in the bag with you. We also like that they come in a draw string bag that's quite a bit larger than the original rolled bivy. I can never roll things up quite as small again, and it's nice to have a bag that accommodates that! We haven't used these in an emergency situation, but I did try one out during a normal night in the woods near our house. The temperature was about 45F after midnight and we had a heavy dew by morning. The bivy bag stayed dry inside, and it reflected enough of my body heat back that I felt warm (wearing jeans, a T-shirt, and socks) and was able to sleep. It would be nice to have a tarp to put down before using the bivy bag because you can feel sticks and rocks through the thin material. But at least the material is strong enough that it didn't get punctured. It was nice to be able to pull the collar of it up around my head and face, which adds to the heat in the bag, and would keep mosquitoes off. Did I sleep deeply in complete comfort? No, but in an emergency situation, this bag will help protect against hypothermia and hundreds of mosquito bites. It's also bright orange, which can help searchers find you if you're lost.

The Escape Bivy I bough in hopes of having a Ultra Light summer sleeping bag. It is rated as a 52 degree farenheit bag, I am a cold sleeper and at 52 degrees with minimal amount of layers on, I was still cold. I do however think the bag is built well, easy to roll up and put back in the stuff sack. The hood is nice and it breaths well. I am 6 foot tall 185 LB and the bag is roomy. It is semi rectangular (halfway between a rectangular and mummy bag). I love that it has a zipper, you do still have to shimmy your way into it. I don't go hiking or backpacking with out it. This is a great product.

I've got 4. They do what they claim. I used it at 40 degrees and was comfortable with only jeans and a light nylon shell jacket. No significant condensation in my experience. They seem to be marketing this as an ultralight alternative to a 1 or 2 season sleeping bag. I keep one in my daily travel bag that goes between job sites, along with an inflatable pad. Wear a few extra layers for warmth, and use a light head cover in rain, and this item does the job in less than enjoyable outdoor conditions. I don't think there is any comparable option that is lighter or more compact. It 'feels' flimsy, but so far has stood up well to regular use.
