Emergency Bivy by Adventure Medical Kits - the SOL Thermal Bivvy (formerly called the Thermolite 2.0 )
Quality product is an emergency sleeping bag that is warm, compact and durable. Also useful as a sleep sack for hostel or cabin use.
This is the hard to find New Improved Model. Adventure Medical Kits corporation does not make enough of these. There is a shortage, if you find them In Stock snap one up, and they run out !
This years model is a little heavier, but more durable. We did an audit of 15 units on the shelf. Weights varied between 8.2 and 8.9 ounces. Some packages still have the OLD weight listed (6.9 ounces) but that is simply incorrect, old packaging.
The reason the new emergency Sleeping bag bivy SOL (Survive Outdoors Longer) version is heavier - AMK went with a stronger material - Thermoflect - a metalized, heat reflective, non woven material - on the top. The older models had the strong Thermoflect on the bottom with a lighter, thinner material on top. By putting the strong Thermoflect material on the top as well as the bottom, the product is more puncture resistant and durable. When it could be life or death, you want a durable product.
Adventure Medical Kits #1 selling survival item for the past five years!
The Thermo-Lite 2 multi-functional, year round compact bivvy sack is also useful as a light weight replacement for your sleeping bag when temperatures are above 50F/9C and an excellent emergency survival shelter for winter time activities. Also perfect for those involved in backcountry skiing, cross country hiking, snowmobiling, extreme camping or for anyone who simply wants a summer sleeping bag or emergency shelter.
The SOL Bivy (One Person Bivy) reflects up to 80% of radiated body heat, is 30% stronger and lighter than the old Thermo Lite Bivy Sack. The Adventure Medical Kits Thermolite 2 Bivy is waterproof and light enough to carry anywhere. The SOL Thermal Bivy uses non-woven Thermoflect fabric that is waterproof and windproof while still producing an ultra light, warm weather sleep system. The inside has a fabric feel that is softer, more comfortable and quieter than other space blanket products(less crinkle = more sleep).
Edges of bag are secured by VELCRO hook and loop fabric that can be opened to about 1/2 way down the length of the bag to permit air circulation and reduce moisture / condensation build up.
Some of our customers have reported that they modify the bag by cutting the threads securing the FOOT area of the sleeping bag. Then sew in Velcro (hook and loop) patches to permit additional venting the foot area. Note that any modification voids the factory warranty, but it is up to your discretion.
The ultra light stuff sack allows you to conveniently store the Emergency Bivvy before or after use. It even has room for extra supplies that you may want to pack. WEIGHT: ~9.0 oz
SIZE: 36" wide at top x 84" long x 27" wide at feet
