Bug Bivy - Silpoly

$89.95

Please note that the bug bivy is also newly available with a DCF floor, and a wind bivy with a solid breathable upper is coming soon.

Simple, fully enclosed insect and critter protection with a tub-floor. The floor clips in to your tarp's corners while the netting is suspended off your face by clipping it to points above.

Available with either a chest zip across the front or a ridge zip (+$10) down most of the length. The chest zip is a little lighter and allows easier entry from the front. The ridge zip allows easier entry from the side, above (when there's no tarp), or diagonally from the front. The ridge zip will open to either side depending on how you thread your rigging through the provided attachment points.

Offered in two sizes and two lengths which partner well with our Cirriform tarps, tapered tarps, rectangular tarps, and many other a-frame style tarps.

You may wish to seam seal the corners of the tub-floor. It shouldn't be necessary for most situations, but may be helpful should you find water pooling on the ground. The bivy is also available with a DCF floor which does not need sealing.

Made in the USA from imported materials.

At the apexes

  1. Tie a loop on one end of the shock cord using an overhand loop knot.
