Recent Bivy Sack Reviews

Outdoor Research Bug Bivy

rated 3 of 5 stars Very lightweight, delicate, and tight. Set up: 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 out-corner 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

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
