The Gear Junkie: Top 10 Gear of the Year - Best Selling Survival Gear!
The Survive Outdoors Longer® 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, and the high-visibility orange exterior makes it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with high tree cover.
Packs into your palm in a nylon stuff sack.

SOL Escape Thermo BivvyBy: Tamar Jensen on 11 February 2018What can I say. I've slept outdoors every night for the last four months. I love this product. You need to understand it's properties. Direct contact with the metallic inner surface will cause rapid cooling. Though this can be used to your advantage of it is a warm night. As it gets progressively colder, I put on a pair of socks, then a jumper, then a jacket, then finally slide into a S2S sleeping bag liner. Cinching the hood area around my neck keeps heat in, and any pesky breeze out. I gently cook in there like in an oven bag. You still need to be insulated from the ground with a good sleeping mat, but this takes care of the rest. With the clothes you would take into the bush with you anyway, plus a sleeping bag liner, this is a complete sleep system. An added little bonus. If you get condensation inside your shelter at night, this bitch stops it from soaking into your clothes or sleeping bag. A brilliant bit of kit once you work out how to use it. A bit expensive for what it is, but if you want to reduce your weight, it's worth every cent.
By: Nicola Angelico on 7 April 2017I've recently started doing multi day trips on my touring bike, and have slowly been updating my camping gear, to reduce the weight. The Thermo Bivvy Survival Sleeper has been great, as I haven't been able to decide on very light weight sleeping bag, but needed something as the weather is getting cooler. This product has been great, I've stayed warm all night. I was concerned about noise when I move in the night, but found after a day cycling, I've slept like a log, so if I did move and make any noise, I didn't hear it.
By: Yannick Cucca on 26 March 2017About time someone made a product like this! Very impressed at how windpropf yet breathable this bag was after struggling with wet soggy sleeping bags after pulling them out of the bivvy this thing is a godsend! Weighs nothing and makes my 0'C bag feel like a -10'C. Can't wait to try this thing in the snow. Can't really comment on durability yet as I've only had it on one trip but everything else stands to the claims.
Good for winterising summer bagBy: Joan on 14 November 2016I've used this in the Blue Mountains in early spring over my current sleeping bag and it did wonders in keeping me warmer. It did make a bit of rustling noise when I was moving around, like a soft plastic bag. I can account for it being breathable, though, if you accidentally cover your mouth, condensation will form in that area. I'm looking forward to trying this out as a bag for summer.
By: Marty Phillips on 9 April 2016Fantastic product if you get stuck out in the wilderness, or i use it as a cover for my down sleeping bag for extra warmth in my hennessey hammock, Iam 6 foot 4 and fits great for length cheers !
