When the only precipitation you need to be protected from is buzzing around on wings or slithering on its belly, this is the bivouac cover of choice. The no-see-um netting will not let the obnoxious little buggers through, and the overhead pole keeps them from getting too close to your head. We left off a pole at the bottom to eliminate the need for staking out the bivy, but stashing a few things at the foot of it will help keep the netting from resting on bare legs. The long-zip end opening allows rapid entry so you can minimize the number of micro guests. Our Hydroseal-200 coated floor material will prevent a wet ground from soaking through.
