Bipod Camping Bivy Sack
|Black Diamond Bipod Camping Bivy Sack - The Black Diamond Bipod bivy sack fills the gap between the minimalist style of standard bivvies and larger near-tent style shelters. Waterproof and breathable ToddTex fabric with a DWR finish keeps out the elements while minimizing condensation. One Easton aluminum pole keeps the fabric well off your face. A large zippered entry on the Bipod Bivy provides easy access, great ventilation and rolls back to reveal a generously sized, no-see-um netting door. This mesh panel lets you feel the breeze and see the stars will keeping mosquitoes at bay. Maintain minimal weight and a compact pack size while enjoying outdoor comfort with the Black Diamond Bipod bivy sack.|
Love this bivy. Zero set up time (just unroll it and throw it on the ground) and great protection. The mesh bug screen is nice and the opening is a good size to get in and out of. I'm 5-9 and have no trouble with room in this guy. I can even throw my pack in at the top if my feet are all the way at the bottom. It definitely keeps you warm too. I've woken up with the outside covered in frost and had no moisture built up inside and stayed completely warm. Love this bivy and highly recommended to buddies.
I just got back from using this at 10K feet on Mt. Rainier. It dipped below freezing with 50 mph wind guests and the bivy performed flawlessly. No condensation and very wind resistant. I was able to fit my boots, water, food, and extra clothing in with me. It provides just enough space to prevent claustrophobia and no more. My only complaint is that it could benefit from a little extra shoulder room (I'm only 5-8, 160lbs). Otherwise ideal for a foul weather bivy. I plan on bringing it often for climbs.
As bivvies go, the Bipod with its side-zip entry is vastly easier to enter/exit than ordinary, "top-loading" bivvies. It's also easier to get pad/bag into, too.When the head of the bivy is properly pitched out, the single pole really does a fine job of staying in place -- even with me, a serious tosser-and-turner, in it. I wish they would put a little stash-pocket in the bivy. I sewed a small mesh stuff-sack into the bivy to have a place to stash quick-retrieval items at night (flashlight, glasses, etc.) and that stuff that wanders off so easily (lip balm, watch, etc.). The Bipod Bivy kept me cozy and dry for several seasons, even though it was a tight fit, especially when I crammed all my gear into it. I had space enough to read while lying on my stomach and propped up on my elbows, though my head did rest against the top. There was enough ventilation that I was comfortable on warm evenings.
