Aviation Ultra Lightweight Emergency Bivvy

Quick Overview

Fits in your palm and weighs only 4oz! Carry life saving shelter with you wherever you go!


The AMK / SOL Emergency Bivvy is truly a "must-have" for any general aviation pilot. It's a fully reusable emergency shelter packed in a 3" x 2.5" stuff sack and weighs less than 4oz. So small, it will easily fit in pockets within your cockpit, a flightbag, or emergency kit. Like it's bigger sibling, the SOL Thermal Bivvy, the Emergency Bivvy is waterproof, windproof and reflects up to 90% of your radiated body heat back to where it counts: your body. The bright orange exterior makes spotting the bivvy in rescue situations easier and the polyethylene construction material is durable and quiet. On top of all these features, the price is about half the cost of filling your oxygen cylinder! There's no excuse for finding your self stuck outdoors without a shelter.

Carry Emergency Shelter With You Anywhere

The SOL Emergency Bivvy is a truly portable shelter. At under 4oz and 3" x 2.5" packed, it can easily go with you anywhere. Despite this incredibly small size and weight, it remains able to protect you from the elements - wind, water, snow, almost anything Mother Nature can throw at it. It's completely reusable so there's no worries about using it as a make-shift sleeping bag if you've forgotten yours. Unpacked, it is big enough to accommodate almost anyone. All of this makes the SOL Emergency Bivvy a highly recommended product for pilots. It will easily pack into a flightbag or emergency kit or it can be stowed in a pocket in the aircraft itself. It will fit almost anywhere.

Protection from the Elements

Should you need to set your aircraft down in a remote location and find yourself needing shelter, the SOL Emergency Bivvy won't let you down. It is fully waterproof and windproof with taped seams to keep moisture out. The Heatsheets construction material reflects up to 90% of your body's radiant heat back to you to keep you warm even in winter conditions. No matter what season you find yourself needing shelter in, the SOL Emergency Bivvy will keep you protected.

Durable and Reusable

The SOL Emergency Bivvy isn't designed to be a one-time use item. It's made to be used repeatedly - whenever you need it. The polyethylene material is much quieter than the usual "emergency blankets" you find at discount stores. It's also tear resistant and is field repairable. Pull the shelter out and stuff it back into the included stuff-sack for the next time you need a quick shelter. The stuff-sack is even sized so that you could include other items in it as well - a great feature when making up your own emergency kit.

Priced So There's No Excuse

Don't take chances when flying, the SOL Emergency Bivvy is priced so economically that there's no reason not to carry enough of these shelters for you and your passengers. Getting caught out in the cold during a potentially desperate situation can be made much easier to bear by carrying a good emergency shelter with you.
