Re: Re: Re: Bivy

Re: Bivy
I just spent 2 weeks in a Tigoat large basic bivy on the Tahoe Rim Trail, and it worked well for me. I have the old head net, which worked well on the few mosquito evenings we had, but is difficul...

Re: A 4 ounce Cuben Fiber poncho tarp.......
Looks like it could be the lightest rain gear set up out there, but I'm not hard core enough to use it as a shelter. Still, at that weight, you could bring a seperate shelter and use the pon...

Re: Re: Mariposa + vs. Comet & Starlite
I was in the same place - mariposa plus v comet v starlite, and picked the comet because it has what I feel is the best compression (3 webbing straps instead of bungee lacing). I have only used i...

This review is for the large bivy with the old-style bug headnet (a mesh headnet bag sewn across the chest, pulled over the head, under the bivy). This is the best value hands down in water resista...

Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 F, 800 down
The phantom 32 was my first light-weight item, and is still my favorite. Loft is great, the hood fits great, and there is enough room for me to add a down jacket or vest. The one downside is the .85 ...

REI Minimalist Bivy Sack
During the time I have used this bivy, I have experienced no condensation, even when the single wall tent I was in was dripping. I have not found a great solution to getting the bug-mesh away from my...

Golite Den 2
Similar to tarptent designs, but no vestibule and made out of Golite's heavy-duty silnylon, so it weighs a little more (3.5 lbs). I have used it in Tahoe National Forest where it was used for me and a...
