Adventure Medical Kit's SOL Escape bivy is an emergency bivy that is breathable - it can be used as a sleeping bag cover to uprate your bag when not required in an emergency situation.

AMK says:

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.

Ideal use: Hiking / Backpacking, Expeditions / Adventure Travel, Off Roading, Emergency Prep

Our Verdict

Adventure Medical Kit's Escape bivy is constructed from a breathable water resistant fabric that's silvered on the inside. The 'feel' of the fabric is like paper that's been continually scrunched so that its flexible - and of course its much tougher than paper - so sleeping in it is different but not unpleasant!

Although not waterproof its highly water resistant so as an emergency bivy shelter it does its job, preserving heat and protecting your sleeping bag from the elements. Being tough it can be used over and again, especially if you are using it as a sleeping bag cover to enhance the rating of your bag.

The Escape Lite Bivy has a drawcorded hood, short side zip, formed footbox and full hood for complete protection from the elements.

As a product its really dual use - if you decide that you need an emergency bivy option this one would allow you to uprate your sleeping bag by using it as a cover which will offset some of its weight (since you don't need to carry a silk liner), then if its not needed as an emergency bivy then carrying it has still brought some benefit.
