You may remember me raving about one of my absolute favorite survival gear items…
The TACT BIVVY has become an essential part of my emergency plan, whether it’s a natural disaster or a national crisis, I wouldn’t feel prepared without it.
I can’t stress enough how amazing this thing is and I have several of them – one for each family member in our bug-out bags, as well as a few for use while camping with my son.
These things can be a real life-saver for you or a family member no matter what survival scenario you may face.
Here Are 3 Ways The TACT BIVVY Can Save Your Life In A Crisis…
1. Signals For Rescue
The TACT BIVVY has 2 sides to it: An orange side for signaling for help and a reflective side (for keeping you warm when inside the bag).
If you’re lost or injured in a remote area, both sides of the BIVVY can be used to signal to search aircraft.
But depending on the scenario, you may not want to be found…
2. Hides Your “Signature”
Sometimes you may NOT want to be found, right?
This may seem strange to you, but during times of crisis, you never know how you’ll be targeted and by whom.
One of our readers, Kevin Dowd, had a great suggestion in how to stay hidden…
“If you turn an emergency blanket with the silver side towards your body, and cover your face, you can defeat most ‘flir’ <from aircraft> and thermal imaging devices <even some smartphones can find your heat signature>.”
The TACT BIVVY is perfect for staying covert when you don’t want to be found because the reflective part of the bag is already on the “inside” and it’s fully enclosed so it doesn’t “leak” your heat out like a regular emergency blanket does.
Plus, the outside is NOT reflective (like most blankets) and won’t give away your location by shimmering in the moonlight.
3. Lightens Your Load
In a forced-evacuation scenario, if you’re ever forced to get to safety on foot, you want your bug-out bag to weigh as little as possible.
A sleeping bag is a complete waste of space and can add an additional 5-7 lbs that will only keep you from reaching your destination.
I personally have a TACT BIVVY that fits right inside of my bug-out bag’s 8″ side tactical pouch, right next to the poncho I use as a shelter.
I use this every time when I go camping with my son and it keeps me warm all night long – even during colder weather.
