The AMK-SOL Escape Bivvy is nothing less than a revolution in backcountry shelters. The complaint with most ultralight emergency shelters is the same: condensation builds up inside as you get warm, leaving your clothes soaking wet. With the Escape Bivvy, condensation is no longer an issue, and you never again have to choose between staying dry and staying warm. The proprietary fabric lets moisture escape at the same time that it keeps rain, snow, and wind on the outside – all while reflecting your body heat back to you. Waterproof seams plus a drawstring hood closure and side zip mean you can seal out the elements entirely or use the bivvy like a traditional sleeping bag. Now available in both a high-visibility orange exterior, making it easy for rescuers to spot you even in areas with high tree cover, or green, for a lower profile. (It should be noted that AMK calls the green color "OD Green" but it is more of a light green with white specks - The photos with the Escape Bivvy in a hand show the accurate colors). Weight: 8.5 oz. Size: 36" x 84"

Tarred Nylon Twine

Bank Line


Tarred Nylon Twine is often called "Bank Line" because it is used for making both bank and trot lines. However, because of its strength, it is great as a cordage for all types of survival situations, and because of its size, you can carry a lot in a kit. It can be used to build shelters, traps and snares, and a host of other chores. Being tarred, it doesn't rot, is excellent at holding knots, will not unravel, and is lightweight (which makes it easy to carry). We offer it in two (2) sizes and strengths. The #18 is a great size to include in kits and I have re-wound it on various items for carrying in a kit. The #36 is twice the diameter but twice the strength for those requiring a stronger cordage.
