My Thoughts and Testing
I took the bag on an overnight hike – in fishing trip. I carried in my normal gear including tent and sleeping bag the idea was to test and review this Bag.
The SOL Bivvy comes with a stuff sack. At first, I was skeptical about this bag after removing it from the carry sack. It seemed to be flimsy and I wasn’t sure it would hold up.
The overnight temps were expected to be in the mid 30’s I wanted the backup tent and sleeping bag. I placed the bag on a ground cover with my sleeping pad under the bag.
The temps dropped to the low 40’s before dark and into the high 30’s during the night and early morning.
OK, temps dropped but I was not once uncomfortable from the cold as matter of fact I was quite toasty. The bag held up well with no tears or rips. It rolled back up and fit in the stuff sack with no problems.
I would recommend this sleeping bag for carry in vehicles, bug out bags, in the tackle box. If you were to get caught and had to spend the night outside this bag could save your life.
Do not use this bag for everyday camping use.This bag is meant to be used as the emergency shelter only.
