Recent Bivy Sack Reviews

Katabatic Gear Bristlecone Bivy

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a 6'6'' ultralight bivy which is not waterproof. I use it underneath a tarp as protection from wind and bugs. This bivy weighs 235g including a ziploc bag. It does not need any setup. I am 189cm/ 6'2". I have used it on four multi-day trips in the Dolomites/Italy with a tarp when it was raining heavily. There was no condensation at all. It protects against wind, water spray, and bugs and adds more protection against cold to your sleeping bag. The mesh panel is large enough and when closed… Full review

Cabela's North Star Bivy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good quality at a reasonable price. If you want a bivy-type shelter, but mostly prefer a full size tent, this could would be a good choice. I bought this shelter as a lightweight, compact alternative to a full size tent. I found the shelter very easy to set up, and take down. It packs quickly and neatly. The first time I used it the winds were gusting pretty good, but the bivy didn't move much and seemed like it could handle much more with no problem. It remains dry inside with rain, though the… Full review

Outdoor Research Bug Bivy

rated 3 of 5 stars Very lightweight, delicate, and tight. Setup: If you wish to guy it out properly, it takes longer than most tents. A single fiberglass pole slides through the sleeve pretty easily.bivy guyed outcorner guys in foot box. Another reviewer commented that the mesh rests on your feet so the bugs can still bite. True. You may be able to sew in an eye for an additional guy line to elevate it or a grommet so you can put a small "pup" style stick in to hold it up. Stability: Works fine. If there was ever… Full review

REI Thaw Bivy

rated 4.5 of 5 stars An older bivy with some versatile features that I haven't seen in others. Setup: Since there are no poles or stake out points, you just throw the bag on the ground and crawl in. Weather Resistance: Keeps water out really well except for the hood hole. It works well as long as you position yourself right, cinch tight, and don't toss and turn too much in your sleep. If the sack is used in conjunction with a small head tarp, there aren't any issues. Ventilation: The hood hole offers great face ventilation. Full review

Black Diamond Spotlight Bivy

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, not factory sealed seams BUT comes with seam seal. I'm a big guy and side sleep so its a tad small in that my knees press up on the sides. Seems to be good quality but you'd want to be a little careful with it as it's thin fabric. Aprox 1 1/2 pounds. Full review

Outdoor Research Aurora Bivy

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a great product for a minimalist backpacker. Super lightweight and takes up very little space. Setup is as easy as unrolling a sleeping bag.  Material is strong. The Gore-Tex material is amazing. I have crawled in slightly damp and woken up dry. Minor condensation on the inside surface of the material when using it below -15° C. Not enough to make sleeping bag damp. Packs up smaller than a 1 litre Nalgene bottle. Does not have a hoop to keep material off of your face, but there are loops… Full review

The North Face Asylum Bivy

rated 4 of 5 stars Good for what it is: a super lightweight shelter; not quite a bivy, not a tent. I got the Asylum "bivy" for a week-long trip along the JMT. It was between this and a Mountain Hardwear Sprite 1. I went with this because it was lighter and more compact. They call it a bivy, but I think it's better than a bivy because it's just slightly larger and will keep you safe from the rain. It is VERY close-quarters—barely enough room to sit up. The stuff sack it came with it a lot larger than it needs to… Full review

The North Face Asylum Bivy

rated 5 of 5 stars Rivers or mountains it gives protection, comfort, and a small package to pack. I've owned a number of bivys over time with favorites being WESTERN MOUNTAINEERING, MOUNTAIN HARDWEAR Conduit SL, and now THE NORTH FACE Asylum Bivy. The other two I use for emergencies and backcountry skiing, but this year I gave my WM old standby to a person homeless on the streets of NYC.   The TNF Asylum is very easy to set up and as others have noted has a small footprint. I use a MOUNTAINSMITH sub two pound down… Full review

Outdoor Research Advanced Bivy

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Sturdy and spacious (for a bivy). I've used this bivy while solo hiking and camping and love its stealth properties. I wouldn't buy a bright yellow or fluorescent orange bivy, because I want to be able to fly under the radar, and this bivy's subdued color helps me do that. I love the little storage pocket, which is a great way to stash my glasses. If you're at all concerned that a bivy might be too claustrophobic of an experience for you, this bivy is a great way to put those fears to rest. There's… Full review
