I love my Escape Bivvy. Hoping to get a couple more for loaners.

Do they mean SOL as in "shit out of luck"? As in if you're stuck in the wilderness with nothing but your Escape Lite Bivvy you will be SOL, or is that just me?

"Survive Outdoors Longer"
I combined this when I went to Bryce NP. It's breathable but not really. I combined it with a Marmot Nanowave (50 degrees), Bivy being inside. First night dropped into the 10's and I woke up wet from condensation. I was warm, But moist wet. I took off the bivy and just slept bare with the sleeping bag. I'm pretty sure I woke up with very mild frost bite on my feet. I wore Midweight Merino wool top and bottoms layers. Heavy weight wool socks, Wool beanie. I thought I was going to lose my feet that night. It's a issue in my part as I figured I can combine the bivy with a sleeping bag to drop it further in it's temperature use. Stick to 50+ weather and it should be fine on it's own or use it solely for emergency's.

Okay. I clearly fucked up then. Duly noted. I'll have to give this another try then. A 20$ costco down quilt, a cheap marmot nanowave 50, and a SOL bivvy on the outside. The budget life. Well see how it goes.
I use my Escape Bivy for winter trips to shelters and use it on the outside. It works great to contain my sleeping pad and bag. And adds warmth for sure. I joined this drop for the Lite to get the weight savings.
Amazon has the SOL Escape for $30.92 on Amazon Prime

Saw that, looks like it's for orange only though. OD green is $49.99.
Hi when is the next run?
I highly recommend the Escape Bivvy! Great sleeping bag option on its own for 50F+/10C+ conditions.

this is my first mass drop order - can anyone give me a rough idea of the time between the drop closing and shipment? just to give some sort of idea for what to expect. thanks!
It says 16m left but drop is inactive. I would like to order!
I've got the regular SOL Escape Bivy and although it's limited as a bivy, it does its job. These are good prices for both the regular and the lite so I'm ordering the Lite to give it a try.
Do you need a ground cloth with this or can you set it right onto the damp or wet ground?

Official website says: "Highly water-resistant fabric keeps you dry even in wet, soggy conditions."
@ http://www.surviveoutdoorslonger.com/survival/shelter/survive-outdoors-longer-escape-bivvy.html
The textile is like the 'breathable' version of Tyvek which is also water resistant. In my experience with that type of Tyvek as a ground sheet it mostly holds up. Water does seep though a tiny bit like grease in a paper bag when pressure is applied.
So pressure points may get damp if lying on wet ground is a fair assumption. Personally I'd use a ground sheet still. Not only for waterproofness but for longevity of the bivvy too. The textile isn't designed for abrasion. This is relative of course to how many times you intend to use it.
Is it possible to combine shipping with the adventure medical kits?
Anyone know the width at the foot end?
These are both long enough for folks 6" tall. The length is 82 " so you would have to scrunch a little. While you could use these as more of a primary shelter as they try to advertise I think they are really made more for emergency use or maybe to increase the temp rating of your sleeping bag. I carry them in my car and day pack. The price isn't bad but for comfort and versatility it's worth the extra $12 for the hood, 1/4 zip and slightly heavier material in the regular Escape Bivy. I think the weight difference is 3 oz. I tried one of these out once: 10 degrees f, a little under-dressed for what I'd normally wear in that weather, snow on the ground. I stayed out for about 3 hrs and mostly froze my ass off but actually did sleep briefly. I could have stayed out all night and while I would have been fairly miserable I felt that I would have been warm enough to survive.
Not sure why they don't understand if they did not make them so small they would sell a bunch more of them, even if it cost a few dollars more.

No responses?
How safely and easily washable is the full feature regular bivvy? ...Does the reflective liner have any stiff or clammy feel to it in use?
Does the Light version have a zipper? If yes, what length is the zipper? I've used the Regular SOL for several years and it's one of my most recommended pieces of gear. But I really, really wish it came with a longer zipper. I know that would increase the weight a few ounces but it might be worth it.

The lite doesn't come with a zipper nor a drawstring. You'll be better off with another regular SOL Escape Bivvy.
@qpch They do not have a netting to cover the face, they are essentially a sleeping bag. I would recommend paying the little bit extra and getting the breathable one if you're going to use it as more than an emergency bivvy.
Shame this wasn't on sale last week, I paid considerable more for one from a local store :(
Does this have a netting to cover your face? Pictures make it look more like a sleeping bag and less like true bivvy.
qpch
No netting, but many bivy bags don't have it. Maybe think of it as a mixture between a sleeping bag cover, a space blanket, and a bivy bag.
Unfortunately, the regular version is rather small. If you're over 5'11" you might not fit in it.

Look at the Trifecta, the same materials but cut more generously... with tarp tieouts.
