The bigger advantage of the SOL Escape Bivvy over other quality backcountry shelters is to keep your clothes dry, without condensation builds up inside!
It is radically different to a typical mylar lined survival bivy or blanket, which do not breathe. The SOL Escape Bivvy breathes and will not create condensation!
It's designed for emergency situations, but most users don't go outdoors without it – for hiking, backpacking or camping.
In an emergency this can save your life, or someone else's, yet it's great for summer camping trips.
Don't try to find a lighter or more compact shelter! Bivvy is ultralight – only 8 ounces, but strong enough and easy to roll up and to repack into the original size.
The windproof and water resistant proprietary fabric lets moisture escape, keeping rain and snow on the outside. This bag deals well with medium rain, but it's not 100% water proof. Where possible, you should use an under cover!
