    We haven't used these yet but plan on taking them on an upcoming fall elk hunt in the mountains. We intend to use them to keep the sleeping bags warm and dry - and we'll have added shelter in case of emergency. Another product that is a basic emergency preparedness item to always have on hand and nice to get some at a great price.

    I bought 8 to give to my family to keep in their cars. They look to be a great thing for them to have in the winter months traveling in the northern Midwest. Much more study than the cheap and noisy milar blankets. These can handle multiple uses. The vent system and material inside should help reduce condensation build up. Although some I would think should be expected with products like these. I just wish these came with a stuff or storage sack of some kind.

    The same bivvy that sells for $30 in a small stuff sack, less the stuff sack, $8.xx. Bought 6 and plan to utilize them in lieu of my 55 gal. 3 mil. trash bags for my bushcraft/ultralight pack.

    As seen in other ratings, not uber tough, don't set up in the brambles, but, with a ground pad or laying a litter/debris mat under you, this will reflect heat and disperse moisture no problem.

    Only neg that I see is the closures are velcro and therefore not water tight should the going get rough. All in all, for eight and some change, I am thrilled with the product.

    This is great to use instead of a tent for mid summer bluebird days and nights ultra light back packing, or as a emergency shelter, very light and inexpensive from stp. Great insurance to have in your day pack or as a sleeping bag cover that keeps your bag dry and dirt free. A little more robust than most foil type covers but still fragile.

    • Same bivvy as $30 SOL minus the stuff sack. Comes folded and sealed in plastic.

    • No stuff sack provided, it is just packed in a flat plastic cover.

  • “Size as supplied (folded)?”
    Asked by suboptimal from Arizona on 7/21/2015 9:55:16 PM
    • SubOptimal,
      Size as supplied, yes it is folded. It comes in a sealed bag with this listing: SOL Thermal Bivvy Item #9090-0151 and would be considered a semi-rectangular cut (in relationship to sleeping bags.

      It measures 32.5" at the top/head opening and tapers to 22.5" at the feet with a mesh foot vent, rectangular (2.25"X5.75") that can be open or closed (with velcro).

      Total length is just shy of 82.5". It also has 31" of velcro opening down one side that can allow some flex. Again, if it is inclement weather and this is all you have, moisture will find it's way in. If cold, dry snow or cool-warm and humid or damp, it would work just fine.

      I am 6'2 and 175 lb.#. I can get in with my Sierra Designs 3+ season synthetic fill sleeping bag and have room to move and the loft of the bag is not compromised. I would consider sleeping with a couple of the side closures open for added roominess.

      Hope this helps and enjoy!

    • Yes, this is helpful -- thanks!

      Do you know it's size when folded in the package "as supplied"?
