The SOL Emergency Bivvy is a full-protection shelter that reflects 90% of body heat for warmth in extreme temperatures.
A heat-reflective bivvy that can function by itself as a shelter from cold, wind and rain. However, you can still loose critical heat through conduction (the transfer of heat to colder surfaces around you). Thickly pad the area underneath your bivvy with as much dry debris as possible to add insulation between you and the cold ground. Find a safe spot for your shelter that is free from risk of falling trees or rocks, running water if is rains, high winds, or other natural hazards.
This product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer and birth defects or other reproductive harm.

Found this product and am glad I did. This is totally different. It's quiet. No crinkling. It's warmer because it keeps the warm air in, but more importantly, it stays quiet while tossing and turning. So you can actually get some sleep.
We are ultra-lightweight climbers, counting grams, and this thing is totally worth it. I'll never leave on an adventure without it. Weighs almost nothing and can save so much agony, maybe even a life.

The specs / stats are all there to see quite how small this is, as well as the wee protective bag it comes in. It's not massively smaller than your typical 'survival bag' but seems lighter and in a more compact shape, contained in a nice bag. The shape, weight and dimensions have left me to generally just chuck this in my bag whenever I'm going on a walk that necessitates a water bottle, some snack and a water proof.
It's probably overkill, for most things I'm doing, but it's nice to have there in case needed. I guess a good, non-emergency example of use was during Summer Solstice up Snowdon. Watching the sunrise with a group, one of of the members hadn't come prepared with enough warm gear and was finding the exposure, waiting for the sunrise on the summit, a little
too much. Her survival bag gave her the warmth she needed to endure rather than having to head down. I'm by no means advocating these work to replace suitable kit / gear but it's always good to have a back up option.
It’s supper light and small so you can forget it’s in your pack and ideal for long mountain hikes.
I take mine as part of my long distance fell running kit.
I have no intention of using it however, having broken my ankle once on a bleak costle path once in a storm I know the importance of carrying kit like this.
Whilst the cost is higher than the order options, if weight and size is important then this is a good option.
The bag is big enough to repack with no problem.
It may get some holes in if used for some time on rough ground, but it can be used a couple of times if needed.
