She broke her leg and this was a lifesaver!
Reviewed in the United States on May 12, 2016
We were 4 miles up the mountain and 5 hours into the freezing rain hike when my co-leader broke her leg. We self-evacuated for as long as she could stand but then it was clear we needed to get her warmer, drier, and rested. Enter SOL Emergency Bivvy! I sent two hikers ahead to "set up camp" and by the time we got there they had a huge fire burning, the sleeping bag and insulated pad tucked in the bivvy and waiting for our hobbling leader. We got her inside the bivvy with her splint, the sleeping bag, pad, and the 3 coats we had on her. It was perfect, she was toasty in minutes. And even as the splint hiking pole tips were straining against the edges, it didn't rip. If anything we had to watch condensation buildup. Now every single hiker with us is buying one too. It's just too small to not have on you at all times. I'll add the video of the event later but I can't give a higher rating for any product. Only reason I have to buy another is the SAR team sliced her out to save time.
