SOL Sport Utility Blanket

rated 5 of 5 stars Knowing that I could use this more than once, means that I am not contributing to the throwaway society. This can be used for many things, so that gives me a good reason to add this to my pack. One day we put this under the sleeping bag and the dampness didn't come through. The next day we used it as a tarp over us in the rain. Since there are so many uses, to me it is a good weight. I have a bad back so every ounce counts. Full review

SOL Escape Bivvy

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The SOL Escape Bivvy is excellent for campers who don't use tents, but prefer to use a tarp or sleep under the stars. It in conjunction with a sleeping bag can perform even in very low temperatures as a full shelter system. SOL Escape Bivvy The escape bivvy, in my opinion, is a bivvy like no other. It’s durable, warm, and comfortable. It does have its downsides though like the fact that you can’t move your arms very easily while inside, especially when using a sleeping bag inside of it. Breathability… Full review

SOL Emergency Blanket

rated 4 of 5 stars An emergency blacket that is small enough to fit in a large locket on your pants or jacket. If you become separated from your pack/camp (don't laugh, it happens) you will be glad that you had this blanket with you. Hopefully you never need it, but if you do it will be the best $6 you ever spent. Full review

SOL Emergency Bivvy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A great go to emergency shelter that's size allows it to be carried anywhere on any trip. This bivy is great for its interned purpose which is an always packed rarely used emergency shelter for one person. From the factory this shelter comes in a very small 3 inch by 1.5 inch tube, This size will never be reproduced by you unless you are are a packing master. The smallest I have got the bivy is a 4 inches by 1 inch tube which took about 10 minutes of careful folding. I find this packs even… Full review

SOL Emergency Bivvy

rated 4 of 5 stars Small, compact, lightweight emergency bivvy bag keeps you covered and warm for temporary shelter. Easier to use than blanket style. Used one on summer slot canyon hike for unexpected overnight stay. I will be able to use more than one time. Comes in a small stuff bag. YES, I would recommend it. Full review

Coghlan's Lightweight Poncho

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Well, the price is worth it and I have re-used them. I think I told it all in the pros and cons. Full review

SOL Escape Bivvy

rated 2 of 5 stars This bag is supposed to be breathable, but if it does at all it is not detectable at -10°C. Collected considerable amount of condensation which turned to icy frost and later water when melted. Went on a Junior Forest Wardens outing in a Wall Tent with temperatures at -15°C. As there was not enough room in the tent for everyone I took the opportunity to sleep outside in a down mummy bag and the Sol escape bivy. By 3:30 in the morning the cold and dampness had prevented any sleep. The amount of… Full review

SOL Thermal Bivvy

rated 4 of 5 stars I would agree with Arson's very thorough review. I defer to his review and would recommend this product. It does work. Full review

SOL Thermal Bivvy

rated 4 of 5 stars With this bivvy sack, I turned a synthetic filled Wenzel mummy bag, rated around 30 degrees F into a really cozy mountain sleeping bag. I slept inside this combination in a winter expedition at around 5800 feet in last December. The temp was 17 degrees outside the tent and no part of my body was cold during any of the two consecutive nights. I also used the bivvy without additional sleeping bag in last summer, it had again done the trick, although I awoke towards the moning  shuddering a little… Full review
