Manufacturer's Description

No matter if you’re walking, skiing or climbing in the mountains, the Windsack provides an excellent – and portable – chance to avoid the elements: simply deploy it from its stuff sack, and hunker down out of the wind to enjoy a meal or a rest break. You will be most comfortable if you either dig down into the snow or find a place that is already somewhat out of the wind.

More importantly, the Windsack is an emergency shelter. As a refuge from a sudden winter storm, its highly wind- and water repellent fabric keeps the weather out while providing a relative degree of comfort, and its bright red color is highly visible from a distance or from the air. The Windsack also works as a bivy bag for one to three people (although in heavy rain, it will provide less protection).

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

This emergency Windsack has earned a place in Hilleberg's lineup of great gear. It has changed from the bivy bag to an essential piece of emergency gear for ski tours, hiking or climbing trips. With a fully waterproof, silicon-coated nylon back, and wind-proof, water resistant front, you and a couple buddies will be protected from the elements if the need arises. It can also be used as a windbreak/tarp.
