new eVent bivys ("tents") now up on RAB's site
Very cool! The larger one has a much higher ceiling than the Summit Extreme but the fabric is only listed as "Exchange Lite" rather than "Exchange Lite eVent". I wonder if eVent is used in this tent?
Which one is Doug talking about? The mountain bivy is exchange lite and the exchange lite icon to the left says it is event. I think it is event.
Integral Designs is apparently coming out with their version in the late spring that is said to be for two people and weight right around 3 pounds. Evan has been tight lipped and terse about letting any specifics out in the market as he believes that there my be copycats. Having said that, Rab is first to market with this line.(edited to correct weight)

What will ID's be, silnylon floor with single layer event walls? With crossover poles there is no way they can hit 2 pounds with a 2 person floored event shelter.Even the Golite utopia 1, floorless and silnylon walls, is right at 2 pounds.

Sorry John, - I hit the wrong key - 3 pounds. I will edit.This is what I know so far:-2 person shelter.-most of the height at the entrance or just aft.-long enough for 6'3" person.-crossing pole - type structure.-dual upper vents like the MK series.- 3ply eVent with 30d floor and 70d as an option.
Doug,Exchange Lite is just a propriatory name used by RAB. It used to be gore-tex but now they use eVENT. Just go to the Exchange Lite logo on the left and everything will be reveiled.

That Summit Mountain Bivi has to be the new world record holder for the largest 2 person bivi on the market.In-between the Bibler I and the Eldorado in size, the 222cm (87") floor length is good news, appears lighter than both. The Rab is listed at 71 oz 9 inc stakes ?) FrancoI bet that GE will never find it under "bivi"
