Not many people are likely to come on here and review a product that is meant to keep someone alive in an unlikely situation. Especially not after having used it.
A friend broke his femur while backcountry skiing, and 2 of the 3 partners had these emergency bivies in our bags. Combined with down jackets, goggles, face masks, beanies, food, water,dry layers, and proper care, I believe that these $17 items helped to keep my friend alive until we were able to transport him to the hospital.
They are small and light and I've never backcountry skied or alpine climbed WITHOUT having one in my bag. On the flipside, they are quite slim and with an immobile leg, it caused too much pain to fit over the body. We ended up slipping one over the patient (albeit with a LOT of pain), and using our teeth to cut the other one in half, to be used as a blanket and tucked in around the patient and under his butt. It tore in a straight line.

this is a must for any med-survival kit. its small lite it can help out in tons if situations and make a unexpected night out on the mountain a lot better than it would have been. amazingly strong for how lite it is. and also dont take it out of its sack unless you absolutely need it. it will be a ton more packable if you dont take it out and stuff it back in. kinda a one time use item in my opinion

Ty William Wade at on 10/25/2013

I always have one in my pack, along with my first aid kit, and some other emergency gear. There is no reason why not to have one, it's lightweight(Mine weighed in at 4.2 ounces), inexpensive, and much better then a emergency blanket. I hope I never have to use it, but I know it's there if I have too. Buy one or a couple, it's the peace of mind knowing its there. I would recommend this to anyone.

I am not sure that I was in danger, but I was definitely more comfortable while using this bivvy on two trips (multiple nights each trip). I was in an open boat and used it while getting a few hours sleep. Without it I was shivering mildly and could not get any rest I. I really like that it is orange on the outside so that it can double as a large signal device.

This is nice to have in your glove box when you live in high mountain towns or go on a ski trip. Just in case I ever slide into a ditch in the middle of nowhere, I feel pretty good having this on hand. Useful for insulation from the snow when winter camping. I also guide kayak tours and have this in my pack as a lightweight addition to a hypothermia wrap, etc.

April Pocorus at on 04/19/2012

I've been in a situation where I thought we might need this bivvy. I felt like an idiot that I didn't have it. It was in my friends back yard on a sledding mission gone wrong. So close to home, but could have been bad had we not made it out. After that incident, I'll carry this super lightweight bivvy with me at all times. Perfect gift to a friend as well!

Michelle Parker at on 12/18/2013

This is a great thing to have just in case. It is small and light weight. It is pretty much a bivy made out of space blanket material. It will keep you warm if you need it as well as dry. It gives me peace of mind when I go hiking and carry this with me. I know if something goes wrong I have shelter to hold up in over night.

Pat Gunning at on 11/09/2013

There is not much to say. This will now sit at the bottom of my back whenever I go touring, climbing or hiking. It is so small and light that I will always keep it with me, and it inspires a lot of confidence. That is about as much as anyone can say until they actually have to use it, which is hopefully never.

Johan at on 02/14/2014

I have not used it but rather have it in the bottom of my touring pack for emergencies. Like the small size and pack-ability. Hope to never have to use it...
I think this is a good gift idea for those how have friends/family who tour but seem to have everything. Just sayin'

Dane B at on 12/18/2012

Have not used this yet but in an emergency it should be a lifesaver! I do a lot of canyoneering and have almost had to spend a few nights away from camp. I will be sure to have this with me when we do have to bivvy ;)

I mean for emergency situations this would be the best thing you can get for about twenty dollars. I went tarp camping the other day and used it in mild rain. It kept my sleeping bag mostly dry. I put my sleeping pad inside it and used no ground cover to see how well it'd work. It worked, but not as good as an actually bivy meant to backpack in. It can get really sweaty in this thing in the rain, just so you know. Night temp was about 40, and I used an ultralamina 45 on the trip( i think). I had to unzip the bag to keep the temp right. Definately reflects some heat, is water proof, and wind proof. I will keep one in my day hike bag, just in case.
