SOL Escape Bivy Bag

The SOL Escape Bivy 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 bivvy 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.

    SOL Escape Bivy Bag

    The second one of these I've had and they are great. The only con I have is they are a bit too tight for the larger kiwi bloke. If SOL bring out an XL version that's the one I would go for. As for Gear Shop: great service as always & they are my go to for online outdoor gear

    Nice & toasty

    This is the perfect salvation, you get nice and toasty on a cold night but it does not wear you down in weight.
