Emergency Bivvy Bags are generally a nuisance when you are at home packing your rucksack aren't they?

You know you might need one, and would regret it if you never had one in the pack, however usually the weight and bulk of the old fashion heavy duty plastic bags does make you wonder why no one has produced something more in keeping with the lightweight philosophy.

I saw this a trade show last year and knew right away this would be a very popular little number.

Technically you can rely on it as it reflects up to 90% of radiated body heat. As the Thermo-Lite non-woven fabric is waterproof and windproof it means it is also tougher, quieter and considerably less bulky than the traditional survival sack. You can see from the image just how small it is in my hand and it weighs only 110gm

Two great advantages I consider to be very important, is that (a) the material is very quiet, so if you want to you could use it as a tent footprint (and not sound like you were sleeping on crisp packets), and (b) you can pack it away down to the original size you see here 'after' use. Something which is impossible with the traditional plastic bag.

All in all, the perfect bivvy bag. Great to know you have one when you need it, small enough not to bulk out your pack unnecessarily.

Perfect for the year round hiker, cyclists, adventure racers and people driving through snow in the winter!

Great Product & Service

I've thankfully not had chance to test this product in anger, but it fits in my run kit and fulfils race kit criteria. It also looks pretty robust too.
Service was top notch, with speed of delivery, follow up and nice personal touch of hand written note in the order. Nice to know people care about what they sell and know about the products.

I have bought this item, 2 of, one for my brother and one for myself for when we are walking in the hills and Dales. I have inspected it and it is exactly as described and expected, I hope I never need to use it in an emergency but feel more secure with in my rucksack.

Spot On!
Friday, 11 August 2017  | 

I was on the lookout for a compact and lightweight bivvy to carry with me on long distance off road runs and ultra marathon races. This product is ideal - it really is as small as in the picture and weighs virtually nothing! Absolutely delighted with it - well worth the money. Delivery was prompt with no issues and the handwritten note was a nice touch. I would definitely use this company again.

I haven't had to use this emergency bivvy bag yet - thank goodness that is exactly what its for - but it is reassuring to have it in my bag. It is tiny and light and so I wouldn't consider leaving it behind on big uphill days of ski touring

I am really impressed with the packability of the survival bag. I will always have it with me mountain biking or walking. Very speedy service from Back Packing Light and appreciated the sweeties as well.
