Adventure Medical Kits Emergency Bivvy #1 Adventure Medical Kits Heatsheets Emergency Bivvy: Heatsheets material is a quieter, more durable material than traditional mylar blankets.

  • Easily repairable
  • Rip resistant
  • Reflects 90% of your body heat
  • Taped seams
  • Windproof
  • Waterproof

The Emergency Bivvy weighs just 108g (3.8oz) and comes in a handy stuff sack, so you won't even notice it in your pack.

Ideal for a wide range of outdoor activities including hiking, climbing and mountain biking the Bivvy reflects 90% of your body's heat. So if you are forced to spend an unexpected night in the outdoors this could be the only thing between surviving and not.

Paul Warman and a friend survived for 56 hours on Bugaboo Spire in Canada, awaiting rescue in an Adventure Medical Kits Heatsheets Bivvy, sliced in half to cover them both!

In Paul's own words...

"As a climber who tends to be a bit on the cheap side, I had seen your bivvies before the climb and thought that they were too expensive. Following my experience on Bugaboo Spire, I don't even let friends go out without an Adventure Medical Kits Emergency Bivvy on trips. If they complain about the price, I calmly pose the question, "How much is your life worth?" and then slap a new one in their hands. Because there is no doubt that the durability of the silver ones just doesn't hold up."

Available in the UK at most outdoor shops.

Definitely helped to save my life in an emergency 12 hour stay in a snowhole with no sleeping bag, bivvy bag, food, or water, maybe made that difference between really cold, and really REALLY cold? Worth sticking in the sack.

Yep, not saying that they're a bad idea, just the way the gear thing is phrased it makes it sound like you get in this bag and suddenly you're only losing 10% of your body heat over any given period. It's not quite that simple, or effective. These bags are miles miles better than space blankets which (being blankets rather than bags) are not so useful if it's at all windy.
