Adventure Medical Kits Emergency Bivvy #1 Adventure Medical Kits Heatsheets Emergency Bivvy: £13.95 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.
