Exped's Bivy-Poncho UL is as functional as a Swiss Army Knife. Exped Bivy-Ponchos provide full rain and wind protection and double as bivy bag or tarp. They are compact, lightweight, and durable. One size fits all as they can be shortened. The Bivy Poncho UL is the lightweight version, and comes with fully taped seams. Less durable due to the ultralight fabric.
Why carry more than you need to? Exped's Bivy-Poncho UL is a rain shelter that not only protects you on the trail but when you want to hunker down for the night too. Its unique design allows it to be used over a backpack when you are on the move with snaps, cinches, and a waist belt and a tarp shelter at night with multiple guy out points. When it needs to go back in your pack, just stuff it into its own pocket that can be used to create ambient light in your tent by simply dropping a headlamp into it.
