3 Overlooked Places to Store Your Life Bivy

3 Overlooked Places to Store Your Life Bivy

A life bivy is a lightweight emergency sleeping bag designed to keep you warm, dry, and alive in hostile weather conditions. It’s a critical component of any camping, hunting, or outdoor survival gear kit.

The Go Time Gear Life Bivy is small and packable enough to take almost anywhere. It’s also so affordable that you’ve probably been tempted to buy more than one and stash them anywhere you might need one.

That’s actually a pretty great idea. 

There are countless places where you could keep one, but where should you keep one? These are our three favorite overlooked locations to store a life bivy.

Car Glove Box

If you’ve ever been stuck waiting for roadside assistance after a vehicle breakdown, you know how annoying it can be. If you’ve experienced it during wintertime, you know how much worse it can actually get. 

Being stranded on the side of the road can turn into far more than a mere annoyance when the weather gets cold. This year, thousands of people were stranded on I-95 in freezing weather–on a major highway just outside of Washington DC.

No matter where you live, having an extra-thick, tear, and puncture-resistant life bivy in your car can make a big difference in a breakdown or unexpected emergency. Unlike a simple emergency blanket, this survival sleeping bag gives you full coverage and reflects 90% of your body heat maximum warmth.

Office Desk or Work Locker

Most of us go into an office or place of work on a daily basis, which is what makes it a great place to stash your life bivy. Just about anywhere you spend a lot of time is somewhere that could potentially lose power in an unexpected weather emergency. 

Although we always hope for the best, it’s important to be prepared for the worst. Complacency is often the enemy of safety, so don’t slip up in this area. Chances are your employer isn’t fully prepared for a natural disaster or weather event that could unexpectedly strand you without power or heat. 

Keep a life bivvy in your desk drawer, toolbox, or work locker and you’ll never be caught unprepared.

Child’s School Backpack

If you’re a parent, you know how difficult it is to keep an eye on your kids when they’re off to school, at summer camp, or even at a friend’s house. Tossing a life bivy in their school bag is a great way to make sure your little one is prepared for anything.

Be sure to sit down with your child and explain to them how to safely use a life bivy. Most children of elementary school age will enjoy learning about how the life bivy’s material can keep them warm and cozy by reflecting their body heat (science lesson!).

If nothing else, they might enjoy playing with the included emergency whistle. Let them know it's not just a toy and explain how they can use it to alert nearby adults if they ever get lost. 

You’ll rest easy knowing your kids can stay warm in an unexpected emergency.
