The SOL Escape Bivvy is nothing less than a revolution in backcountry shelters. The complaint with most ultra-light emergency shelters is the same: condensation builds up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes soaking wet. With the Escape Bivvy, 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. The low-visibility OD Green color with repeating black logos is ideal for those times when survival means you don’t want to be seen.

Product Features

  • Stay warm and dry in the original backcountry emergency shelter that stays dry while you heat up.
  • Highly water-resistant fabric keeps you dry even in wet, soggy conditions.
  • Durable fabric reflects 70% of radiated body heat and resists punctures and tears through heavy use.
  • Low-visibility olive drab green exterior makes it easy to blend into your environment. This pack includes one 31″ x 84″ bivvy with a stuff sack.
  • Fully featured side zipper, draw-cord hood closure and foot box for comfort and durability.

I love this, great piece of emergency gear- a must for me for sure. Very impressed at the quality. The seams, stitching and zipper seem pretty good. I get the cost for an emergency ultra lite weight and ultra small sleeping bag. I am happy with the purchase. I just wish the zipper was taped or something, I foresee issues here.

Bivvy Best Backpacked the Zion Narrows and packed the SOL escape bivvy instead of my usual sleeping bag. At 8oz, my friends were jealous of the light weight. We arrived at the campsite along the Virgin river with rain. I set up my Big Agnes fly creek UL1 tent, thermarest trekker pad, and unrolled the bivvy. I changed my wet clothes for a light fleece jacket and Smartwool long johns. After dinner I crawled into my tent and bivvy for well-deserved sleep.

Cool Light weight bivy, pretty strong too I have a regular bivy but rarely use it as my tent is only 24 ozs. I picked this up as a light weight way to crank up warmth of a lighter bag and to carry on extreme day hikes (just in case). I am 6-1 188 lbs and I fit in this bivy in street clothes. I also found that I could use my Mountain Hardwear Lamina 45 inside. Not constricted, but not much extra room. Also at 40 degrees it was way too hot inside. The draw cords allow the hood and shoulder openings to be closed to the “nose only”…
