Comments about Adventure Medical Kits AMK SOL Escape Bivy:

I tour bike and do a lot of stealth camping. I purchased the AMK SOL Bivy as an alternative to carrying a sleeping bag on summer overnights. It has exceeded my expectations and is now a permanent part of my hammock sleep system.

After about a dozen trips I have found it to be VERY warm. On 80 degree or hotter evenings I used it as a blanket...on cooler nights I crawl inside and zip up as needed. Excellent breath-ability so that even under heavy rain and humidity I experience very little "claminess".

It dries out quickly and repacks very easily.

So far no issues with durability. I toss and turn several times each night and was worried the material would not stand up. No tears or stretching at all so far.

It has performed so well that I intend to use it as a shell for my 3 season bag and see how far into winter I can get.

My only complaint, (if you could call it that),is that they don't offer other colors. Sometimes when STEALTH camping visibility isn't really a great thing.

      Comments about Adventure Medical Kits AMK SOL Escape Bivy:

      We're outfitting our young daughter's pack and "weaning" (her) items out of our packs. One of the standard things to carry in the mountains - even in summer!

        Comments about Adventure Medical Kits AMK SOL Escape Bivy:

        This is my second Sol Escape Bivy, it was a gift for my tripping partner so that we each now have one. I have used this bivy when the temps suddenly went a bit too low along with a cutting wind and it saved my bacon. Just place your sleeping bag in and enjoy the few extra degrees of warmth it provides along with teriffic windbreak. This product has breathability that is so necessary for camping in extreme weather-and it works! If you get condensation inside your bag and its cold out...you could be worse off than you started. Spend the extra $ for the only one you'll ever need. Fantastic product, we're all about preparedness. It fit my friend who is over 6 feet tall.
