Where to get a drawstring Bivy pattern with bathtub floor on 08/02/2009 15:19:04 MDT Print View

Does anyone know where to get a bivy pattern that has a drawstring opening and a bathtub floor?

If not this design any bivy pattern would help.

I have the bivy pattern from six moon designs but I am looking for others.

Thank you

if you can make a stuff sack you can make a drawcord bivy. Make the breathable part narrower than the coated part. sew the mesh to the breathable top, then sew the top to the coated bottom along the 2 sides. Sew the bottom like a square stuff sack, see thru-hiker.com. That should get it for you. you may want to seam seal the 2 vertical seams in the footbox on the coated fabric.
