Rigging for stand-alone bivy pitch

$13.75

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.

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.
