    The bar has been set for ultralight, emergency bivys.

    All that separates you from the elements is 8.5 ounces of waterproof breathable fabric, and that's all you need when you're bundled up inside the SOL Escape Lite Bivy. Unlike other plastic-bag bivys, the Escape Lite features material that reflects heat but also allows sweaty moisture to escape from the inside out, so you stay warm, dry, and free from the freezing effect of your own moisture. Cold air has a tendency to creep in around the hood and zipper of most bivys, but the Escape Lite features a drawstring closure around the hood and a quarter-length zipper that leaves less opportunity for heat loss. With a tiny pack size, massive warmth, and the ability to control moisture, the Escape Lite can serve as a reliable emergency shelter or a sleeping solution for skiers, backpackers, and fastpackers who want the lightest possible gear.

      Another last minute purchase for a trip as I couldn’t find my other escape bivy that was last seen in my alpine touring pack????? Can’t (and hope to never) comment on its true functional value in use for saving my rear in an emergency. But, they are small enough and light enough to go on any trip where foul weather could screw a trip or an extended trip where an accident could render your regular sleeping bag screwed (down bag gets soaked somehow). Anyway—low cost, light weight, compact emergency item. I had it for the anticipated cold temps at 9000’ this fall where I planned to get me and my 45 degree down bag into this if I couldn’t stay warm when temps dipped below freezing. I managed to stay warm and never needed to use it. That said, get one—you never know when you might need it.

      Great for emergency

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      Feels rather paper-like. We got the one without the zipper because it goes into a day-pack with a lot of other emergency items and were trying to save space and weight. It also does not have a drawstring around the head so you have to figure a way to keep it snug around your shoulders. Maybe a bandanna around it? If I am using this in an emergency I hope to have some leaves or whatever is around to put under and over myself along with it. Anyway - it's handy to have this rather than carry a full sleeping bag everywhere - just in case...

      Just in case..

        I bought this for an emergency bivvy for the car. I think it is a great simple compact little package. Better safe than sorry.

        The fabric is actually fairly substantial instead of it just being made out of that thin reflective mylar.

        To get down to decent sleeping time at +10 degrees, I sleep in one of these, in a hammock, with a pair of tyvek bags telecoped around me, and the hammock, with the right clothing on, and with "heat bubbled' tyvek used as a liner for this bivy. It won't last long if you lie on the ground with it, unless you never turn over and get off of your sleeping pad. sticks and rocks soon poke holes in it.

        I hate traditional bags, they always get wet, weigh 40 lbs when wet, and can't be dryed out in the field. they tear fairly easily and lose their stuffing, they are heavy, bulky and expensive, too. Furthermore, the zippers break and jam. So I like this bivvy a lot, but as I stated, it needs the right clothing inside of it, and a liner, if you want to handle really cold weather.

        Unanswered Question

        Description is inaccurate- that's for the regular version. The 'Lite' version omits the zipper and drawstring, and possibly has a different fabric.

        Unanswered Question

        Hmmm...Description says 8.5 oz, Tech Specs says 5.5 oz, and if you zoom in on the product photo the packaging says 4.7 oz. So anyone care to clear this up?
