Unlike standard emergency bivvy shelters, the Adventure Medical Kits SOL Escape Bivvy is made from a waterproof/windproof, breathable fabric that eliminates condensation buildup while reflecting your body heat back to you. A wonderful option for outdoor enthusiasts looking for a back up shelter that can be used comfortably during an emergency, the SOL Escape Bivvy is light and small, can easily be stowed in a backpack or survival kit, and weighs only 8.5 ounces!
Most ultra-lightweight emergency shelters are made from fabrics that allow condensation to build up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes and skin damp and clammy. The SOL Escape Bivvy eliminates concerns of staying dry and warm because the proprietary fabric lets moisture pass through while keeping rain, snow, and wind on the outside and reflecting your body heat back to you on the inside. Waterproof seams and a simple drawstring hood closure with a short, side zipper allow for easy access while sealing out the elements. These features make the SOL Escape Bivvy suitable for use as a traditional ultra-lightweight, warm-weather sleeping bag or as an over-bag in cold climates. The SOL Escape Bivvy is made from a high-visibility orange exterior which makes it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with tree cover.
A useful add-on to any survival pack, the Adventure Medical Kits SOL Escape Bivvy is also a great addition for cold weather camping, summer backpacking or general travel.

Likes: I think these bivvies are great for emergency preparedness. I'm going to buy some more to keep in our vehicles, for example. So far, though, I've just used it for backpacking when I know the nights are going to be colder. I just put it around my sleeping bag and it adds some extra insulation against the chilly nights. Since it doesn't weigh much, I just take it when I need it and leave it at home when I don't. I have had no problems with condensation.
Dislikes: No complaints so far. I don't think they're meant to last forever, but it seems great for now.

Dislikes: Positively no argument here.

Zoomify would go here, or a larger image... This is a temporary placeholder... The settup of this may change depending on whether we are in fact using Zoomify.
Rotate SWF would go here... Greg will reconfigure this after we have an actual example. This is just a place holder.
