Recent Bivy Sack Reviews

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

Integral Designs Salathe

rated 5 of 5 stars This bivy excels at versatility. Originally designed for climbers it allows for sitting up and putting your arms out too cook or whatever. Integrated screen for bugs and/or venting. Combined with a tarp, this is a fantastic lightweight (not UL) shelter system for the backcountry. Unlike hooped designs this bivy allows you to sit up,  stick your arms out and move around to cook, look for gear or adjust the tarp. It breaths well and ads 15° to 20° warmth to the sleep system. On one of my backcountry… Full review

Outdoor Research Alpine Bivy

rated 4 of 5 stars I've had this bivy tent for a few years. I've taken my Alpine Bivy on car camping trips to the Joshua Tree, Anza Borrego, San Clemente, and Grand Canyon, Lone Rock, Zion. Setup is so easy I can put my tent together in the evening without needing my headlamp as long as I have already scouted out a secure flat ground space. If you are car camping in multiple locations, and you have the space, you might even take this tent with your sleeping pad and sleeping bag inside for even easier setup. On the… Full review

Outdoor Research Alpine Bivy

rated 4 of 5 stars A few simple steps that improve the comfort of this bag (even without these, it is still an excellent bag): 1. Stake it down. 2. Use clothespins (three) to hold the hood open when using just the insect netting (especially if not staked down). 3. Ideally, run a guy line, using the loop sewn on the bag in addition to the stakes for added loft to avoid condensation. I would recommend this bag. Easy to set up once you figure it out. A one page instruction sheet would really help. Otherwise, a very nice,… Full review

Blackstone Bedroll Protector

rated 4 of 5 stars Little bulky, but does exactly what they say it will do. I bought two of these for what I knew was going to be a long wet motorcycle trip to Alaska.   The first thing I noticed was there was some extra material around the bag that made it feel bulky when packed on the bike. The heavy material the Blackstone is made out of is a little noisy when you move around in it.  Don't set this up on a hill — nuff' said.  I liked being able to zip the bedroll and all my loose stuff up inside the Blackstone.
