Does this thing breathe?
Does this thing breathe? If not, it could be a very sweaty experience. All I use is a tarp and BPL bivy these days, it took quite a while to get used to the claustrophobic of a closed bivy. ...

According to this site, given that you are in an eVENT bivy, I would be getting a Pertex Quantum shell on your sleeping bag. This article sums it up: "Do not get a bag with a waterproof/bre...

Anyone own the Titanium Goat Ptarmigan Bivy with Full Net hood
I think I want one of these as my BPL bivy feels a little claustrophobic when zipped up which is all the time to protect from bugs. Can any owners tell me, does the fabric hood sit on top of the...

Get a down bag
Get a down bag, you will take care of it. It's too expensive not to take care of! Put all your gear in a giant plastic bag inside your back pack. That should easily keep it dry. Synthetic ba...

Therm-a-Rest Neoair
I am a side sleeper and have used the Prolite 3 and normally a 3/4 length Prolite 4 but find the NeoAir to be far more comfortable. If you blow up the NeoAir on a warm sunny day you will find that ...

Likes - I have the version with the mesh/fabric hood and use the bivy with the mesh over my face 99% of the time. This is much more comfortable and less claustrophobic than momentum fabric over my ...
