Product Description

How simple can a bivy sack be and still have a Hydroseal-200® coated taffeta floor, a generous ultra-light ripstop Gore-Tex® fabric roof and no-see-um netting, and still get Gore's "Guaranteed To Keep You Dry"™ certification? Well, this is it. As with its more sophisticated brethren, the end opening provides quick and easy entry while totally keeping the weather at bay.


It's fully seam taped, but with less Gore-Tex® fabric and have dropped the sleeping pad straps. We firmly believe that a tight budget is no reason to get stuck with inferior performance.

* Avg. weight: 1 lb. 4 oz. / 570 g

OJ LoennekerBodybag

Voted 4/5

This Bivy feels like sleeping in a bodybag when you close it up. It also gets a little sondensation when fully sealed up. I have never experienced any leaks, but I am not completely sure, because of the condensation issues. Overall an OK bag for cheap, and is better than a wet sleeping bag in the morning.
