The Outdoor Research's Helium Emergency Bivy is small enough and light enough to not notice having it in your pack until you need it. The waterproof and breathable Pertex Shield+ fabric will protect you from the weather.

Outdoor Research says:

Under 10 oz of adventure insurance that packs down to the size of a beer can.

Even with an ideal forecast and immaculate itinerary, adventures can go wrong. Nobody wants to plan for the unexpected overnight bivouac, much less pack for it.

Using the completely waterproof and seam-taped protection of Pertex® Shield+, this simple tube-like construction uses a cinch closure to seal out the elements and save on bulk. Weighing in at an undetectable 6 ounces and packing down to the size of a beer can, the Helium Emergency Bivy is the perfect piece to keep at the bottom of your pack for unpleasant surprises in the backcountry.

No fuss, nice and simple

Very breathable fabric, used under tarps on many nights this winter, never any condensation, down bag /quilt is always dry. Too short to cover my head but comfortable to close around my neck. I have not used it outside the tarp in rain but would be confident using it as an emergency survival bag. The edge seam is tightly sewn but not sealed, it has not leaked.
