This 4 oz Emergency Bivvy could mean the difference between life and death. By reflecting 90% of the heat back it can help to keep you warm and the outer shell prevents rain and wind from getting inside.
The S.O.L. (Survive Outdoors Longer®) Emergency Bivvy is made from the same heat-reflective polyethylene as Adventure Medical Kit's world-famous emergency blankets (reflecting 90% of your body heat back to you), with the added benefit of being fully sealed so that no wind, rain, or snow can get inside. If you're forced to spend the unexpected night outdoors, hop in the Survive Outdoors Longer® Emergency Bivvy as soon as the temperature drops and instantly improve the odds in your favor. Remember you can lose considerable heat if you are laying on the ground or in contact with any cold surface (conduction), Cover the ground with tree boughs, leaves, newspaper, cardboard or any type of insulation barrier you can find and if you have extra, pull some on top of you and the bivvy as well.
Abner Fitzwillie notes, "The storage bag it comes in has space to put additional items in if you wish. In mine I have an aluminum can with the top cut off and folded over with the bivvy inside plus I added a wire bail on the drink container, cotton balls with petroleum jelly, Signal mirror, Sun mini-compass, storage bag, plastic zip lock sandwich bag, the bivvy bag inself, bag with english flint,leather piece and tinder, ferro rod, snare wire, cordage, several (perhaps outdated water purification tablets), stormproof matches with strikers, Swiss army knife. It is a fairly complete mini-kit."
