Recent Bivy Sack Reviews

Equinox Sprawler Ultralite Bivi

rated 4 of 5 stars A well-made (in the USA), breathable bivy with a waterproof bottom. This is my first bivy and it went with me on my first tarp trip.  I squeezed in a four-day trip on the Ice Age Trail in mid-November, just before deer season. Trying tarp camping for the first time I ordered this a week before leaving and it was at my door with days to spare. Temperatures dipped to 37 and the woods were damp from earlier rain. The first two nights I pitched the tarp with the sides pegged to the ground. I was amazed… Full review

Outdoor Research Advanced Bivy

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a very well constructed bivy. Lightweight and when the cover is kept open there is no condensation. I used this bivy on the Northville-Placid Trail in the Adirondacks. Excellent protection. Overall, if you're interested in buying a bivy, I'd spend the money and get an Advanced Bivy from Outdoor Research. Full review

Integral Designs Unishelter

rated 4 of 5 stars I prefer a tent to a bivy but this is the best bivy I've ever used! Easy to climb into. Comfortable to read in. Light and packs small. Setup is as simple as it gets with any bivy. The one pole on this guy requires staking for it to be effective but once it's set up, the mesh stays off your face and there is plenty of room for reading comfortably. In warm, heavily mosquito'd areas you can leave the mesh open all night without walking up looking like you have small pox.  Completely waterproof —… Full review

REI Minimalist

rated 3 of 5 stars This bivy works as an emergency shelter, but is not a good option for backpackers and climbers planning on spending the night in it. I've used this bivy 25 times on an icefield expedition with clear skies, fog, and rain without any additional shelter above me (I chose to sleep outside the tents). The upper waterproof/breathable material is waterproof, but not very breathable. If you sleep with it zipped up, be prepared for significant condensation even on a clear night with minimal humidity. Unzipping… Full review

Integral Designs Bugaboo II Bivy

rated 1.5 of 5 stars Great material, almost nailed it, but flawed design. This version seems to be an evolution of the well known Integral Designs Salathe Bivy.   A simple, fairly lightweight, but also burly durable bivy. Material is improved. Simple brim is perfect. Lots of pluses. However, the new center zipper appears to be a choice of form over function. The older versions had two symmetrical partial side zippers. Obviously one zipper versus two means weight savings. I can only assume this is the reason they went… Full review

Sierra Designs Backcountry Bivy

rated 4 of 5 stars I've spent 10 plus nights in this bivy so far, in Arizona, Colorado, and Utah. Overall, a great piece of equipment that I plan on continuing to use. Overall, good bivy. Condensation has been the biggest con, but is usually an issue with most bivy sacks. The worst condensation I experienced was after a warm night of intermittent rain storms in Utah—go figure. I stayed dry, but the inside of the bivy and outside of my down bag were pretty wet. Otherwise, I love the bug netting, the size of the bag,… Full review

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
