    REI Members get back an estimated $ 3.00 on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    SOL Thermal Bivvy is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from UPDATED REVIEW. So this is an update on the past review. Since I bought this bivvy, I've had to use it twice in real emergencies. The first one was guiding a river trip for children summer camp when we got hit by a thunderstorm and we were forced to get out of the water. It took the storm a little longer to pass and had to use the bivvy to keep the kids warm until it was over. Second time was not too long ago when my car broke down in the mountains right where i had no cell phone service. I had nothing but street clothes and the bivvy in the car. Temps dropped to the low 20's and I had no other option than to get in it. I warmed up in no time and was able to sleep. I woke up in the middle of the night and got out and used it as a blanket for better ventilation as not to get my clothes wet in condensation; I had to hike out in the morning and wet clothes while cold and windy could easily cause hypothermia whenwearing cotton. This is a survival piece of equiepment, It's supposed to have that much condensation in order to keep you warm without any other clothes or liner in case of an emergency. Once your body releases enough heat to warm up the space in the bivvy, vapor will cease and so is new condensation unless you keep breathing inside the bag. IT WORKS AS INTTENDED and you must use it properly for what it is and not as a replacement for a proper outdoor sleeping system..
