I've been perusing these forums looking for answers to various TiGoat bivy questions. Instead of looking TOO hard, I decided to shoot a few questions over to TiGoat. (It sounds like they are working on putting additional information/pictures on their website) I think they just moved locations and must be extremely busy, but they still had time to answer a few of my questions...
Some information I gathered: (Josh, Dj - feel free to chime in with any additional information)
A summary of questions I asked:
"A bivy that will accommodate the following:
Ridgerest Regular (Max 72")
Short Neo Air
Me (5' 8")
(in an earlier email I also mention my sleeping bag: 800 Fill, 15 Degree Bag - Mountain Hardwear Phantom)
The Raven seems like it would be too long for me - I'm short! :) - but the Ptarmigan seems like it would be too narrow for the neoair, correct?
Is there some sort of compromise?
"...The Raven Omni is essentially a Ptarmigan that has the dual zip option, and a wider foot for pads. The extra length is a bit decieving, as the extra length is a function of extra width, its not stated very well on the website...I'd go the Omni route... the Omni will only accept a bug net hood, and not a window. And when you have the bug net hood in the bivy, the zipper does not open as full as it would without out the bug net. With out bug net, the bivy zipper will zip from hip, up acroos the chest, and down to the opposite hip. With the bug net it will only open from hip, up across the chest, but not down to the other hip. But, it will open this way from either right or left. We really need to get pictures, prices and specs up on the website. The Raven Omni is ~7.1oz, and $130, a bug net hood is an additional $20..."
Hope this helps others that might have similar questions or was unsure...
