Rigging for stand-alone bivy pitch

$13.75

Please note that the cord for the head end is now white in color (foot end is black). This change is to provide better visibility and to differentiate the cords for the head and foot.

Use this rigging set to simplify your YAMA bivy's stand-alone setup. It works with most adjustable trekking poles or our tent pole sets, and requires only four stakes. The geometry of this setup improves pole stability and ease of pitch compared to using a single line for each pole. Adjustability is provided by a section of shock cord at the center of each line and by multiple stake/clipping loops tied at each end.

Note: Poles and stakes are not included.

Made in the USA from imported materials.

Weight:
  • Front line: 0.28 oz | 8g
  • Rear line: 0.26 oz | 7g
  • TOTAL: 0.54 oz | 15g
Cords:
  • 1.1mm HDPE core w/ polyester sheath
  • 3/32" Shockcord

On each cord you'll find a grommet at the center and multiple loops tied on the ends. For your initial set-up, at each end, clip the shockcord running from the bivy's apex to the loop at the grommet. Then clip the shockcords running from the tub corners to one of the loops near the end of the cord on each side. This should be one loop above the one you intend to stake through. For longer poles, you'll tend to use the loops closer to the ends, while for shorter poles you'll tend to use the ones closer to the center. Stake out the cords so the tub's corners are pulled evenly at all four corners, then insert your poles into the grommets and tension the apexes as necessary. If there's too much slack, move the stakes and clips to loops closer to the middle of the cord. Or, if there's too much tension, move them further out towards the ends.

Subsequent pitches should be much easier and faster since you'll have figured out the appropriate loops to use and roughly where to place your stakes. You may also wish to keep the cords clipped to the bivy when you stow it for faster setup the next time.

After some time, you may wish to trim the cords if you find that you always have excess length.

Product Availability

Unless otherwise stated, if the item is available to add to your cart, then it is in-stock and available to ship. Please see the shipping tab for expected fulfillment times.

If the item is marked as "sold out" or "available to backorder" then please refer to the production calendar and the FAQ below for more information.


Q: Why is so much stuff sold out?!

A: Our capacity is very limited, and we can't make products nearly quickly enough to meet demand. We only sell what I have in-stock, and don't typically take backorders. I know this can make it hard for you to plan, but in the longer term, it should help us to grow and to serve you better in the long term. See the last question for more info about this.


Q: When can I expect the item I'm interested in to become available?

A: For most items, please refer to the production calendar at the bottom of this page. This calendar shows when I expect to work on more substantial products. For some accessory products, production may not always be scheduled in advance and availability may be unpredictable.

FYI: If you do not see the item that you are interested in, then I do not know when it may become available (I don't have a private schedule beyond what's shown!).


Q: Can I pre-order, back-order, or reserve an item?

A: I'm afraid not. Out of fairness to everyone, I don't make special arrangements to reserve products. On rare occasions, I may open a product up for back-ordering to everyone (or a new product for pre-ordering). When this happens, it's made available to order on the website. If you are signed up for the stock notification, you will receive a notice that the item is available to order.


Q: Can you let me know when the item becomes available?

A: Yes. On the product page, enter your email address in the space provided to be automatically notified when inventory becomes available. If you don't see where you can do this, please let me know; sometimes there's a fluke in the settings and the field doesn't show. Please note that the email notification could get filtered out as spam. You can try to 'whitelist' info@yamamountaingear.com to make sure the email comes through.


Q: Why do you do things this way, and what are you doing to improve the situation?

A: For years I followed the more common back-order model, basically making everything to order. This approach made it challenging to increase production, limited time available to design new products or refine existing ones, impacted my personal/outdoor time, and meant long waits to get your gear delivered. I changed my approach when I moved to Montana in 2019. Offering only what's already made allows me to work and plan more efficiently, and opens up hiring opportunities.


NOTES ON USING THE CALENDAR

- For products shown on the calendar, you can typically expect the item to be made available towards the end, or soon after the period shown on the calendar. Sometimes, however, some items may be listed earlier in the period. For example, if the calendar shows that I'm working on tapered tarps, certain sizes may become available earlier within the period with other sizes coming later.

- Items that specify "ongoing production" mean that we are continually working on these items and doing our best to maintain inventory. If the item or a particular size is sold out, you can expect it to likely become available soon.

- Please note that you can change the month shown on the calendar using the arrows at the top.
