Escape Bivvy

rated 5 of 5 stars Essential gear. On its own, no bag or blanket, just with a windbreak, this takes me down to 45°F. Excellent product. Part of my kit ALWAYS. Even use it at home in cool weather, under blankets or blankets inside. No idea why others have reviewed this negatively. Maybe they are really big...? Not used to UL gear? I'm 5'6" and 160. This bivy is small. Over the last two years I have spent probably 300 nights in it. Did half a 2018 PCT in it, only adding my quilt for maybe two days a week. I finally… Full review

Escape Bivvy

rated 5 of 5 stars This product is listed and marketed as an emergency bivy/shelter. However I have used this as part of my sleep system when hiking/backpacking for a few years now. It is extremely lightweight (8 oz) and packs very small. This bivy packs very smal and is extremely lightweight, making it perfect for either a bug out bag, emergency bag in your vehicle, hiking, etc. It is durable. I have used it as part of my primary sleep system on multiple section hikes over the past few years and it has held up very… Full review

Escape Pro Bivvy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars The Escape Pro Bivvy blurs the line between an emergency survival shelter and an ultralight sleeping bag cover. While it is comfortable and functional in ways a mylar space blanket could never be, the Escape Pro can’t quite compare with full-fledged waterproof-breathable fabric bivvy sacks. In carving its own niche, it may have hung itself out to dry. Best For: Aspiring fastest-known-time record setters. Fastpackers and backpackers needing a just-in-case shelter. WFRs and WEMTs looking for an… Full review

Survival Poncho

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A light, effective emergency blanket/poncho. I've been a big fan of SOL/AMK Heatsheet blankets for some time now. Much more durable and useable than the chintzy ones you so often see labeled as emergency blankets. I've got to test the Heatsheets out a couple of times and with a little work was able to refold them and reuse them. The SOL Survival Poncho is made of the exact same proven material. Obviously at this light weight (2.7 oz) it isn't bombproof, but plenty durable for its intended purposes—a… Full review

Origin

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a great Grab n` Go survival kit for backpacking or hiking trips. The SOL Origin is just the right amount of equipment if you find yourself in bad way. The compass, knife, and fire strike are a "must have" in any survival scenario. The whistle and flash signal mirror may just be the difference between being rescued or not. The LED light,  cordage and fishing kit are great extras, along with the 62 point survival instructions, and the ability to add items like water tablets and and a water… Full review
