Adventure Medical Kits – SOL Escape Bivvy

Friday, June 3rd, 2016

While there’s a very fitting definition for the acronym SOL but to Adventure Medical Kits it stands for “Survive Outdoors Longer.” And yes, I know, we traditionally use a single v when we say “bivy” but they dubbed it a “bivvy.” All of that notwithstanding, the Escape Bivvy is a nice bit of kit.

Not only will it keep you warm by reflecting 70% of your body heat back at you, but unlike other survival blankets, it breathes. Another way it is different than many other space blankets is that it Green in color. The material itself is highly water resistant so it won’t absorb water and offers waterproof seams as well as a drawstring hood and side zips so you can use it in a variety of ways. The SOL Escape Bivvy is 84″ x 31″ and weighs 8.5 oz.
