Adventure Medical Kits’ SOL (Survive Outdoors Longer) Emergency Bivvy is something that you simply need to carry in your emergency kit if you regularly go backpacking or camping. Made from tear resistant and repairable material, this ultra-light, super-small, compressible, waterproof and windproof, bivvy can prove to be a life-saver in a survival situation. Small enough to fit in your hand like a ball, the compact sleeping bag-like sack weighs only 8.5 oz and measures 36? by 84? after it is rolled out, making it easy to store in your glove box or backpack. You can also carry this waterproof and windproof bivvy as an alternative bag which can serve as an emergency back-up shelter in case you are stuck outdoors at night and the temperature suddenly drops. The bivvy comes with a small carrying case made of nylon and a draw string that you can pull to unroll and get inside within seconds. Even if you are 6’0 feet tall and weigh close to 200 lbs, you can still get inside the bivvy pretty easily. The bivvy can keep you fully dry if you are forced to sit or lie down on the ground which is cold or wet as it brings heat to your body and also protect it from the wind. Made from heat-reflective polyethylene, the bivvy releases moisture created by your body and keeps out the external moisture from the elements toreflect back 90% of your body heat. The bivvy’s waterproof seams, drawstring hood closure and side zip ensures that it is fully sealed with no chances of wind or rain entering inside. Its orange exterior gives it higher visibility and improves your chances of being spotted by rescuers. The bivvy is definitely superior to an emergency blanket as it is waterproof and windproof and designed to help you come back home in one piece after an unplanned night out in the elements.
